Compliance and Enforcement Information
|10/97||Compliance Time Line:
File contains a one page time line which identifies reporting dates for initial notification, equivalency requests, annual compliance reports, initial statement of compliance report, notification of planned performance test, idling emission test report and semi-annual exceed reports.
Reporting Dates and Test Method 307.
Memorandum clarifies the annual emission report due date and discusses Test method 307.
Guidance on Subpart T batch cold cleaning equipment standards.
Memorandum provides an overview of the equipment standards and guidance on determining the thickness of the water layer.
Freeboard ratio requirements on enclosed design machines.
Memorandum clarifies the purpose of increased freeboard and discusses how a horizontal port enclosed design with superheated vapor technology could be a reasonable equivalent to increased freeboard.
Applicability of Subpart T to the cleaning of PCB contaminated
Memorandum clarifies that EPA did not intent Subpart T to cover cleaning of porous materials that are part of PCB laden transformers, so long as such materials are handled and disposed of in compliance with an approved PCB permit issued under the Toxics Substance Control Act of section 761.79, PCB decontamination standards and procedures.
|7/24/01||Letter - EPA Region I to Associated Spring: Request for Applicability Determination on halogenated solvent cleaning NESHAP and Title V Operating Permit Program [letter will also be available on the EPA Applicability Determination Index (ADI)]|
Applicability Determination Index (ADI). The ADI is maintained by EPA's Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA) and provides a data base of memoranda dealing with applicability issues. The database is searchable by Subpart.
Iron and Steel Sector Notebook. Sector notebooks are developed by EPA's Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA) and contain multimedia information (air, water, and land pollutant release data) for a specific industry. OECA page search results indicate that Subpart T may be addressed under "Iron and Steel".
