EPA-Approved New York State Regulations and Laws

Updated September 2017
State citation Title/subject State effective date EPA approval date Comments
Title 6, Part 200, Subpart 200.1 (PDF) (26 pp, 386 K) General Provisions, Definitions 10/15/11 12/27/16 The word odor is removed from the Subpart 200.1(d) definition of “air contaminant or air pollutant.”
Redesignation of non-attainment areas to attainment areas (200.1(av)) does not relieve a source from compliance with previously applicable requirements as per letter of Nov. 13, 1981 from H. Hovey, NYSDEC.
Changes in definitions are acceptable to EPA unless a previously approved definition is necessary for implementation of an existing SIP regulation.
EPA is including the definition of “federally enforceable” with the understanding that (1) the definition applies to provisions of a Title V permit that are correctly identified as federally enforceable, and (2) a source accepts operating limits and conditions to lower its potential to emit to become a minor source, not to “avoid” applicable requirements.
EPA is approving incorporation by reference of those documents that are not already federally enforceable.
