8-hour ozone NAAQS designations attainment demonstration emission inventories base year
Terms:
Clean Air Act
CAA
Abstract:
EPA anticipates that nonattainment designations for the 8-hour ozone NAAQS and the designations for PM2.5 will occur in the 2004-2005 time frame. 3-4 years after designations are promulgated, States will need to submit new attainment demonstration SIPs for the new NAAQS. A key element in the overall SIP planning process is the need for updated statewide emission inventories. This memo identifies 2002 as the anticipated emission inventory base-year for the SIP planning process to address these pollutants. Identifying the base year at this time gives certainty to States, and the selection of 2002 harmonizes dates for other reporting requirements.
