This action proposes to allow permitting authorities to continue deferring Title V operating permitting requirements until December 9, 2004, for area sources of air pollution that are subject to National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for five source categories. Those sources are: halogenated solvent cleaning; ethylene oxide sterilizers; perchloroethylene dry cleaners; chromium electroplating; and secondary lead smelters.
These amendments would relieve industrial sources, state and local agencies, and EPA regional offices of an undue regulatory burden during a time when available resources are needed to implement the Title V permit program for major sources. Under the proposed amendments, sources must continue to meet all applicable requirement, including emission control, monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements. This document is a fact sheet describing the proposal.
