Clean Air Act Stationary Source Compliance Monitoring Strategy
The Clean Air Act Stationary Source Compliance Monitoring Strategy:
- provides national consistency in developing stationary source air compliance monitoring programs, while at the same time provide states/locals with flexibility to address local air pollution and compliance concerns.
- improves communication between states, tribes, and local governments and regions on stationary source air compliance monitoring programs, and enhance EPA oversight of these programs.
- provides a framework for developing stationary source air compliance monitoring programs that focuses on achieving measurable environmental results.
- provides a mechanism for recognizing and utilizing the wide range of tools available for evaluating and determining compliance
- establishes a consistent level of evaluation coverage and environmental and public health protection by all delegated agencies, including EPA where EPA has direct implementation authority.
This guidance is implemented through the annual National Program Managers Guidance which defines program priorities, implementation strategies and regional performance measures. Regional performance measures are negotiated and set with the regions through the Annual Commitment System (ACS) measures.
