This White Paper for streamlined development of Part 70 Permit Applications was released on July 10, 1995 by Lydia Wegman of EPA. A number of streamlining improvements that sources will be allowed to use in preparing their Title V permit applications are described in detail in the attached White Paper, including:
Providing emissions descriptions, rather than emissions estimates, for emissions not regulated at the source, unless such estimates are needed for other purposes, such as calculating permit fees;
Submitting checklists, rather than emissions descriptions, for insignificant activities based on size/production rate and for risk management plans potentially owed under §112(r);
Providing citations for applicable requirements, with qualitative descriptions for each emissions unit, and for prior NSR permits;
Providing group treatment for activities subject to certain generally-applicable requirements; Certifying compliance status without requiring reconsideration of previous applicability decisions;
Using the Part 70 permit process to identify environmentally significant terms of NSR permits, which should be incorporated into the Part 70 permit as Federally enforceable terms; and Submitting tpy estimates only where meaningful to do so and not, for example, for §112(r)-only pollutants; such estimates should be based on generally-available information rather than new studies or testing.
