SPRING 2002 AGENDA
          OF REGULATORY AND
       DEREGULATORY ACTIONS
"PPfe believe that the best approach to making our rules more cost-effective and fairer includes having
those of you who are stakeholders in a problem work with us in deciding on the solution. We urge you
              to participate with us in this process."

                     A. What Principles and Objectives
                     Guide EPA in Developing Regulations
                     and Policies?
                      The quality of the scientific,
                     economic, and policy analyses that
                     underlie EPA regulations is vital to the
                     credibility of EPA decisions and
                     ultimately our effectiveness in
                     protecting human health and the
                     environment. Additionally, continued
                     testing and adoption of new
                     environmental protection methods must
                     be a central tenet in  environmental
                     problem solving. A well managed
                     regulatory process and a strong
                     commitment to innovative solutions
                     will ensure that the significant
                     environmental improvements that we
                     all want to achieve are cost-effective,
                     fair and fully protective.
                      Much of the  success over the last 31
                     years and seven administrations in
                     cleaning up the Nation's water, air, and
                     land is attributable to the system of
                     Federal and State regulation that has
                     directed and coordinated private
                     investment in pollution control and
                     prevention. While regulation will
                     remain an important tool to implement
                     environmental policy, it is not the only
                     one. Instead, EPA must increasingly act
                     as an innovator, educator, and leader in
                     administering a broad set of new tools
                    — including new methods to design and
                     administer regulations — that engage all
                     segments of our society in responsive
                    behaviors that protect the environment
                    while promoting appropriate economic
                    growth. For example, we have worked
                    with businesses and community leaders
                    to develop more than 40 voluntary
                    partnership programs that help achieve
                    environmental  objectives with the
                    greatest possible efficiency. For more
                    information about these programs visit:
                    www.epa.gov/partners.
                      EPA's regulatory process must ensure
                    that the Nation's environmental system
                    protects human health and the
                    environment in a cost-effective manner.
                    Appropriate scientific, economic and
 policy analyses must be planned at early
 stages in the regulatory development
 process so that senior Agency
 decisionmakers understand the benefits
 and costs of policy options from which
 to choose. Additionally, it is important
 that we continue to apply new methods
 to protect the environment—by building
 flexibility into regulations up front,
 through nonregulatory approaches
 where effective, by creating strong
 partnerships with States and businesses,
 and by vigorously using public outreach
 and involvement.
  The basic legal requirements we must
 follow when we issue a regulation
 generally are contained in the
 Administrative Procedure Act, the
 Regulatory Flexibility Act as amended
 by the Small Business Regulatory
 Enforcement Fairness Act, the
 Unfunded Mandates Reform Act, the
 Paperwork Reduction Act, the National
 Technology Transfer and Advancement
 Act, and the Congressional Review Act.
 You can find information on many of
 these laws athttp://www.law.cornell
 .edu/uscode/.
  We also must meet a number of
 requirements contained in Executive
 orders. Of particular significance for
 EPA rulemakings are Executive Orders
 12866 (Regulatory Planning and
 Review), 13045 (Children's Health
 Protection), 13175 (Consultation and
 Coordination with Indian Tribal
 Governments), 13132 (Federalism), and
 13211 (Energy). You can find
 information on these and other
 Executive orders at http://www.nara
 .gov/fedreg/eo.html#top.
 B. How Does EPA Develop Rules and
 Policies?
  In order to improve the regulatory
 process within EPA, we established a
 task force to examine the Agency's
 rulemaking process, and to  recommend
 ways to improve the internal process
 and strengthen the supporting science
 and analysis. The task force concluded
 that the regulatory process is essentially
 sound but improvements can be made
 in several areas to more effectively carry
 out our mission including: better
 scientific and economic analyses;
broader consideration of policy options;
greater accountability; and better
management of significant
nonregulatory decisions. For more

decisionmaking process for rules,
policies, and certain other important

steps we are taking to improve our
decisionmaking in the FY2001
Statement of Priorities
(http://ciir.cs.umass
.edu/ua/October2001/priorities/
environmental	protection	
agency_(EP A) .html).
C. What Actions Are Included in the
Agenda?
  EPA includes regulations and certain
major noncodified policy documents in
the Agenda. We generally do not
include minor amendments or the
following categories of actions in the
Agenda:
• Administrative regulations such as
  delegations of authority, changes of
  address  or phone numbers.
• Under the Clean Air Act: Revisions to
  State Implementation Plans;
  Equivalent Methods for Ambient Air
  Quality Monitoring; Deletions from
  the New Source Performance
  Standards source categories list;
  Delegations of Authority to States;
  Area Designations for Air Quality
  Planning Purposes.
• Under the Federal Insecticide,
  Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act:
  Actions  regarding pesticide tolerances
  and food additive regulations;
  decision documents defining and
  establishing registration standards;
  decision documents and termination
  decisions for the Special Review
  Registration process; and data call-in
  requests made under section
  3(c)(2)(B).
• Under the Resource Conservation and
  Recovery Act: Authorization of State
  solid waste management plans;
  hazardous waste delisting petitions.
• Under the Clean Water Act: State
  Water Quality Standards; deletions
  from the section 307(a) list of toxic
  pollutants; suspensions of toxic
  testing requirements under the
  National Pollutant Discharge
  Elimination System (NPDES);
  delegations of NPDES authority to
  States.
• Under the Safe Drinking Water Act:
  Actions  on State underground
  injection control programs.
  There is no legal significance to the
omission of an^item from the agenda.
D. How Is  the Agenda Organized?
  We have organized the agenda:
• First, by the law that would authorize
  a particular regulation;
• Second, by the current stage of
  development (proposal, final, etc.);
  and
• Third, by the section number of the
  statute which requires or authorizes
  the rule.
  The 'following 14 sections deal with
13 laws that EPA administers and a
fourteenth broader section called
"General" that includes cross-cutting
actions, such as rules authorized by
multiple statutes and general
acquisition rules:

1. General

2. The Clean Air Act (CAA)

3. The Atomic Energy Act (AEA)

4. The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide,
  and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA)

5. The Federal Food, Drug, and
  Cosmetic Act (FFDCA)

6. The Toxic Substances Control Act
  (TSCA)

7. The Emergency Planning and
  Community Right-to-Know Act
  (EPCRA)

8. Chemical Safety Information, Site
  Security and Fuels Regulatory Relief
  Act

9. The Resource Conservation and
  Recovery Act (RCRA)

10. The Oil Pollution Act (OPA)

11. The Comprehensive Environmental
  Response, Compensation, and
  Liability Act Superfund (CERCLA)

12. The Clean Water Act (CWA)

13. The Safe Drinking Water Act
  (SDWA)

14. The Shore Protection Act (SPA)
  In each of these 14 sections, there are
up to 5 headings covering the following
stages of rulemaking:

1. Prerulemakings - Prerulemaking
  actions are intended to determine
  whether EPA should initiate
  rulemaking. Prerulemakings may
  include anything that influences or
  leads to rulemaking, such as advance
  notices of proposed rulemaking
  (ANPRMs), significant studies or
  analyses of the possible need for
  regulatory action, announcement of
  reviews of existing regulations
  required under section 610 of the
  Regulatory Flexibility Act, requests
  for public comment on the need for
  regulatory action, or important
  preregulatory policy proposals.

2. Proposed Rules - This section
  includes EPA rulemaking actions that
  are within a year of proposal
  (publication of Notices of Proposed
  Rulemakings (NPRMs)).

3. Final Rules - This section includes
  rules that are within a year of final
  promulgation.

4. Long-Term Actions - This section
  includes rulemakings for which the
  next scheduled regulatory action is
  after March 2003.

5. Completed Actions - This section
  contains actions that have been
  promulgated and published in the
  Federal Register since publication of
  the fall 2001 Agenda. It also includes
  actions that we are no longer
  considering. If an action appears in
  the completed section, it will not
  appear in future Agendas unless we
  decide to initiate action again, in
  which case it will appear as a new
  entry. EPA also announces the results
  of our Regulatory Flexibility Act
  section 610 reviews in this section of
  the Agenda.
E. What Information Is in Agenda
Entries?
  Agenda entries include the following
information, where applicable:
  Sequence Number: This indicates
where the entry appears in the Agenda.
  Title: Titles for new entries (those that
have not appeared in previous Agendas)
are preceded by a bullet (•).  The
notation "Section 610 Review" follows
the title if we are reviewing the rule as
part  of our periodic review of existing
rules under section 610 of the
Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C.
610).
  Priority: Entries are placed into one of
five categories described below.
  Economically Significant: As defined
in Executive Order 12866, a rulemaking
action that may have  an annual effect on
the economy of $100  million or more or
will  adversely affect in a material Way
the economy, a sector of the economy,
productivity, competition, jobs, the
environment, public health or safety, or
State, local, or tribal governments or
communities. OMB reviews all

Federal Register/Vol.  67, No. 92/Monday, May  13,  2002/Unified  Agenda
 EPA
 economically significant rules under
 Executive Order 12866.
   Other Significant: A rulemaking that
 is not economically significant but is
 considered significant by the agency.
 This category includes rules that are an
 EPA priority and rules that EPA
 anticipates will be reviewed by the
 Office of Management and Budget under
 Executive Order 12866 because they
 may:
 • Create a serious inconsistency or
   otherwise interfere with an action
   taken or planned by another agency;
 • Materially alter the budgetary impact
   of entitlements, grants, user fees, or
   loan programs or the rights or
   obligations of recipients; or
 • Raise novel legal or policy issues
   arising out of legal mandates, the
   President's priorities, or the
   principles in Executive Order 12866.
   Substantive, Nonsignificant: A
 rulemaking that has substantive impacts
 but is neither Significant, nor Routine
 and Frequent, nor
 Informational/Administrative/Other.
  Routine and Frequent: A rulemaking
 that is a specific case of a recurring
 application of a regulatory program in
 the Code of Federal Regulations (e.g.,
 certain State Implementation Plans,
 National Priority List updates,
 Significant New Use Rules, State
 Hazardous Waste Management Program
 actions, and Tolerance exemptions). If
 an action that would normally be
 classified Routine and Frequent is
 reviewed by the Office of Management
 and Budget under E.0.12866, then we
 would classify the action as either
 "Economically Significant" or "Other
 Significant."
  Informational/Administrative/Other:
 A rulemaking that is primarily
 informational or pertains to agency
 matters not central to accomplishing the
 agency's regulatory mandate but that the
 agency places in the Agenda to inform
 the public of the activity.
  Also, if we believe that a rule may be
 "major" as defined in the Congressional
Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801, etseq.}
because it is likely to result in an annual
effect on the economy of $100 million
or more or meets other criteria specified
in this law, we indicate this under the
"Priority" heading with the statement
"Major under 5 U.S.C. 801."
  Legal Authority: The sections of the
United States Code (U.S.C.), Public Law
(P.L.), Executive Order (E.O.), or
                     common name of the law that
                     authorizes the regulatory action.
                       CFR Citation: The sections of the
                     Code of Federal Regulations that will be
                     affected by the action.
                       Legal Deadline: An indication of
                     whether the rule is subject to a statutory
                     or judicial deadline, the date of that
                     deadline, and whether the deadline
                     pertains to a Notice of Proposed
                     Rulemaking, a Final Action, or some
                     other action.
                       Abstract: A brief description of the
                     problem the regulation will address; the
                     need for a Federal solution; to the extent
                     available, the alternatives that the
                     agency is considering to address the
                     problem; and the potential advantages
                     and disadvantages of the action.
                       Timetable: The dates (and citations)
                     that documents for this action were
                     published in the Federal Register and,
                     where possible, a projected date for the
                     next step. Projected publication dates
                     frequently change during the course of
                     a rule development. The projections in
                     the Agenda are our best estimates as of
                     the date we submit the Agenda for
                     publication. For some entries, the
                     timetable indicates that the date of the
                     next action is "to be determined."
                       Regulatory Flexibility Analysis
                     Required: Indicates whether EPA has
                     prepared or anticipates that it will be
                     preparing a regulatory flexibility
                     analysis under section 603 or 604 of the
                     Regulatory Flexibility Act. Generally,
                     such an analysis is required for
                     proposed or final rules that EPA
                     believes may have a significant
                     economic impact on a substantial
                     number of small entities.
                       Small Entities Affected: Indicates
                     whether we expect the rule to have any
                     effect on small businesses, governments,
                     or nonprofit organizations
                       Government Levels Affected: Indicates
                     whether we expect the rule to have any
                     effect on levels of government and, if so,
                    whether the governments are State,
                     local, tribal, or Federal.
                      Federalism Implications: Indicates
                    whether the action is expected to have
                     substantial direct effects on the States,
                     on the relationship between the national
                    government and the States, or on the
                     distribution of power and
                    responsibilities  among the various
                    levels of government.
                      Unfunded Mandates: Section 202  of
                    the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act
 requires an assessment of anticipated
 costs and benefits if a rule includes a
 mandate that may result in expenditures
 of more than $100 million in any one
 year by State, local, and tribal
 governments, in the aggregate, or by the
 private sector. If we expect to exceed
 this $100 million threshold, we note it
 in this section.
   Energy Impacts: Indicates whether the
 action is a significant energy action
 under Executive Order 13211.
   Agency Contact: The name, address,
 phone number, and e-mail address, if
 available, of a person who is
 knowledgeable about the regulation.
   SAN Number: A code number that
 EPA uses to identify and track
 rulemakings.
   RIN: The Regulatory Identifier
 Number is used by OMB to identify and
 track rulemakings. The first four digits
 of the RIN stand for the EPA office with
 lead responsibility for developing the
 action.
 F. What Tools Are Available To Help
 Quickly Identify Actions That Are of
 Interest to You?
   The Regulatory Information Service
 Center (RISC), the Government Printing
 Office (GPO), and the EPA have created
 a number of aids to help you find
 actions  that are of interest to you.
   For Rules That Directly Affect a
 Particular Industry: See Appendix F
 "Environmental Protection Agency
 Subject Index to the Unified Agenda." If
 you have access to the Internet, you can
 use the EPA Regulatory Agenda search
 engine which is located in the Small
 Business Regulatory Library section of
 the EPA website at
 www.epa.gov/regagenda. Click on
 "Search Regulatory Action Database"
 and then "Access the Database." This
 tool can be used to search all Agenda
 entries by keyword and we invite
 everyone to use it. The GPO also has a
 search engine which is located at
 http://www.access.gpo.gov/su	docs/
 multidb.html.
 For Rules With Significant Impacts on
 Small Businesses, Small Governments,
 and Small Nonprofit Organizations:
  Go to Appendix B following this
Agenda  for the lists of the rules that we
expect may have a significant impact on
a substantial number of small entities.
These lists  are also available on the
Internet. The small businesses list is at

For Rules That We Expect Will Have
Some Impact on Some Small Entities
but Less Than a Significant Impact on
a Substantial Number of Them:
  See Appendix C following this
Agenda, "Index to Entries That May
Affect Small Entities When a Regulatory
Flexibility Analysis  Is Not Required."
This list is available on the Internet at
http://ciir.cs.umass.edu/ua/Spring2002/
entities/smgov-5 .html.
For Rules With Any Impact on State,
Local, or Tribal Governments, or Other
Federal Agencies:
  See Appendix D following this
Agenda, "Index to Entries That May
Affect Government Levels." This list is

G. How Can You Access Federal
Register Documents and Interpretive
Documents via the Internet and via E--
mail?
  Like many organizations in the public
and private sector, EPA is harnessing
the power of the Internet to meet the
needs of those we serve. The EPA Web
site offers more than 100,000 files
online. If you want to get automatic e--
mails about areas of particular interest
as they appear in the Federal Register
(FR), we maintain 12 collections
including: air; water; wastes and
emergency response; pesticides; toxic
substances; right-to-know and toxic
release inventory; environmental
impacts; endangered species; meetings;
the Science Advisory Board; daily full-
text notices with page numbers; and
general information. For more
information and to subscribe via our FR
Web site, visit:
http://www.epa.gov/fedrgstr/
subscribe.htm. If you have e-mail
without full Internet access, please send
an e-mail to envsubset@epa.gov to
request instructions for subscribing to
the EPA Federal Register listservers.
   Several Web sites allow access to the
full text of Federal Register documents.
•  The Government Printing Office site
   has a number of databases online
   including the Unified Agenda and the
   Federal Register going back to 1994.
  This site is the official source for the
  electronic Federal Register. It
  provides public access via telnet,
  Internet, and dial-up connection and
  is located at
  http://www.access.gpo.gov/su	docs/
  multidb.html.
• EPA's site
  (http://www.epa.gov/fedrgstr/) has
  environmental rules issued by EPA
  and other Federal agencies dating
  back to October 1994  and lets you
  search by date, page citation or
  keyword. It includes links to the
  Regulatory Information Service Center
  and Government Printing Office sites.
  We also have a Regulatory Agenda
  search engine at:
  http://www.epa/regagenda. To use,
  first select "Search Regulatory Action
  Database" and then select "Access the
  Database."
• The Regulatory Information Service
  Center of the General Services
  Administration maintains a site to
  help users who want  to find
  information about Federal, State, and
  local regulations at
  http://www.reginfo.gov/. This site
  includes links to all agencies'
  regulatory agendas and regulatory
  plans going back to October 1995.
  In the "Additional Information"
section of many of the entries in this
Agenda we include the  Internet address
for documents that we have already
published as part of the rulemaking.
  We have recently opened an Internet
site through which you can access a
collection of non-binding guidance
materials issued by EPA Headquarters
offices since January 1,1999. The
collection includes documents issued to
Regions, States, and/or  the regulated
community that describe how the
Agency intends to exercise its
discretionary authority and explain
what a statute or regulation means. The
collection is located at:
http://www.epa.gov/guidance/.
H What is EPA's New Regulatory Public
Access System (RPAS)?
     The Regulatory Public Access
System (RPAS) will provide access to
documents used and produced as a part
of EPA's administrative rulemaking
process. These documents include
Federal Register notices, support
documents, and public comments. Users
may review these documents and
submit comments on rulemaking actions
online through RPAS. Furthermore,
RPAS will also include certain
nonregulatory information of general
interest, such as selected guidance
documents.
I. What Special Attention Do We Give
to the Impacts of Rules on Small
Businesses, Governments, and
Nonprofit Organizations?
  For each of our rulemakings we
consider whether there will be any
adverse impact on any small entity. We
attempt to fit the regulatory
requirements, to the extent feasible, to
the scale of the businesses,
organizations, and governmental
jurisdictions subject to the regulation.
As required by the Regulatory
Flexibility Act (RFA), for rules which
we expect may have a significant impact
on a substantial number of small entities
we convene a Small Business Advocacy
Review Panel to consider the
rulemaking. We also prepare regulatory
flexibility analyses on these rules. See
Appendix B at the end of the Agenda,
"Index to Environmental Protection
Agency Entries for which a Regulatory
Flexibility Analysis is Required" for a
list of these rules. See Appendix C for
a list of the rules that may affect small
entities, but which will not have a
significant impact on a substantial
number of them.
  As required by Section 610 of the
RFA, we review within 10 years of
issuance all rules that were projected to
have a significant economic impact on
a substantial number of small entities.
This year we have no rules scheduled
for section 610 review.
J. Why Participate in EPA's
Decisionmaking Process and How Can
You Be Most Persuasive?
  You may participate by getting in
touch with the contact person provided
in each Agenda entry. You may also
participate by commenting on proposed
rules that we publish in the Federal
Register. Once we have proposed a rule,
we will consider and address comments
before issuing a final rule. To be most
effective, comments should contain
information and data that support your
position, and you also should explain
why we should incorporate your
suggestion in the final rule. You can be
particularly helpful and persuasive if
you provide examples to illustrate
concerns and offer specific alternatives.
  We believe that the best approach to*
making our rules more cost-effective
and fairer includes having those of you
who are stakeholders in a problem work

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 33

Abstract: The regulation will codify
revisions to the Agency's program for
the utilization of Small, Minority and
Women's Business Enterprises in
procurements under assistance
agreements (i.e., grants and cooperative
agreements awarded by EPA as well as
grants and cooperative agreements
awarded by other agencies under
interagency agreements with EPA). The
revisions are necessary to ensure
consistency with the Supreme Court's
decision in Adarand Constructors, Inc.
v. Pena, 115 S.Ct.  2097 (1995), and
were identified as part of the Clinton
Administration's review of affirmative
action programs. They include:  (1)
placing greater emphasis on requiring
assistance agreement recipients  to
submit documentation supporting
proposed fair share procurement
objectives for Minority Business
Enterprises (MBEs) and Women's
Business Enterprises (WBEs) based on
the availability of qualified MBEs and
WBEs in the relevant geographic
market; (2) authorizing or requiring
recipients and their prime contractors
to take reasonable race/gender-
conscious measures (e.g., bidding
credits) in the event that race/gender-
neutral efforts prove inadequate to meet
fair share objectives; and (3)
administering statutory MBE/WBE
objectives as a national goal, allowing
smaller or larger fair share objectives
for particular grants or cooperative
agreements based on the availability
standard.

                   Legal Deadline: None
                   Abstract: The purpose of this rule is
                   to revise the Agency's conflict of
                   interest (COI) acquisition regulations.
                   The specific revisions involve more
                   stringent requirements for submission
                   of relevant information from Agency
                   contractors and potential contractors
                   regarding their relationships with
                   parent companies, affiliates,
                   subsidiaries, and sister companies.
                   Current Agency regulations do not
                   require the submission of this level of
                   information. Receipt and evaluation of
                   this information is critical  in order for
                   the Agency to decide whether or not
                   COI situations exist and how they are
                   to be handled. This  revised rule will
                   also codify several COI clauses that
                   have been developed since the issuance
                   of the previous rule in 1994.

 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 6
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: The proposed revision is
 necessary to clarify and update EPA's
 National Environmental Policy Act
 (NEPA) regulation. The revision would
 clarify Agency responsibilities for:
 Congressionally funded special
 appropriation projects and EPA-funded
 grant programs. The revision would
 clarify public involvement procedures
 and organization responsibilities. The
proposal would revise the list of
 actions which are categorically
 excluded from analyses. The revision
 is also needed to  incorporate a number
 of Executive orders and other cross-
cutting requirements into the NEPA

                    licensing adjudications under the
                    Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and
                    Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). The existing
                    Rules of Practice were originally
                    promulgated by EPA in 1973. In the
                    subsequent 19 years, Congress has
                    substantially amended FIFRA, creating
                    a number of additional types of
                    licensing adjudications which are not
                    expressly provided for in the existing
                    Rules of Practice. In order to include
                    provisions tailored to these new types
                    of proceedings, and to incorporate the
                    standard practices which have evolved
                    and the precedents which have been
                    established since these rules were first
 promulgated, EPA intends to
 comprehensively revise the FIFRA
 Rules of Practice.

2810. PERSISTENT,
BIOACCUMULATIVE, AND TOXIC
(PBT) POLLUTANTS STRATEGY
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: Not Yet Determined
CFR Citation:  Not Yet Determined
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract:  The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA] has developed
National Action Plans under a national
strategy to overcome the remaining
challenges in addressing priority PBT
pollutants. These pollutants pose risks
because they are toxic, persist in ,
ecosystems, and accumulate in fish and
up the food chain. The PBT challenges
remaining stem from the pollutants'
ability to travel long distances, to
transfer rather easily among air, water,
and land,  and  to linger for generations.
EPA is committing, through this
strategy, to create an enduring cross-
office system that will address the
cross-media issues associated with
priority PBT pollutants. This strategy
fortifies existing EPA commitments
related to  priority PBTs, such as the
1997 Canada / U.S. Binational Toxics
Strategy (BNS), the North American
Agreement on Environmental
Cooperation, and the signed
international agreement to control
persistent  organic pollutants (POPs).
EPA is forging a new approach to
reduce risks from and exposures to
priority PBT pollutants through
increased  coordination among EPA
national and regional programs. This
approach also  requires the significant
involvement of stakeholders, including
international, state, local, and tribal
organizations,  the regulated
community,  environmental groups, and
private citizens. EPA is carrying out
this strategy through the
implementation of National Action
Plans for Priority PBT Pollutants. EPA
is initially focusing action on 12 BNS
Level 1 substances either individually
or as categories and two major cross-
cutting issues (monitoring and
outreach/risk communication). The
action plans will use the full range of
EPA's tools to prevent and reduce
releases of these substances. These
tools include international, voluntary,
outreach, programmatic, remedial,
compliance monitoring  and assistance,
enforcement, research, and regulatory
tools. EPA will integrate and sequence
actions within and across action plans,
and will seek to leverage these actions
on international and industry-sector
bases. Beyond  these first 12 substances
EPA will identify additional PBTs for
development of National Action Plans.

2811. REGULATORY INCENTIVES FOR
THE NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL
PERFORMANCE TRACK PROGRAM
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: Not Yet Determined
CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The National Environmental
Achievement Track is designed to
recognize facilities  that consistently
meet their legal requirements and have
implemented high-quality
environmental management systems,
and to encourage them to achieve more
by continuously improving their
environmental performance and
informing and involving the public.
Facilities gain entrance to Achievement
Track by submitting an application that
documents that four specific criteria are
met: operating environmental
management system; commitment to
continuous environmental
improvement through documented past
improvements and  future commitments;
engaging the public; and a strong
record of compliance. To promote
participation in the program, and the
environmental and other benefits that
will come with it, EPA intends to offer
several incentives. Among those
incentives are the adjustments in
current regulatory requirements that are
the subject of this rulemaking. These
include reducing the frequency of
reports required under the Maximum
Achievable Control Technology
(MACT) provisions of the Clean Air
Act;  streamlining by publically owned
treatment works (POTWs) under the
Clean Water Act; and opportunity for
Achievement Track facilities to
consolidate reporting under various
environmental statutes into  a single
report.

 PROJECT XL RULE

 Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

 Legal Authority: Not Yet Determined

 CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined
                    Legal Deadline: Other, Statutory, This
                    rule references a NJ rule which will be
                    published 2/4/02.

                    Abstract: The Gold Track Program is
                    a crucial part of NJDEP's efforts to
                    create a State-run tiered performance-
                    based program. Currently, facilities may
                    join NJDEP's Silver Track Program,
                    which is a lower-level tier that provides
                    recognition for commitments to a
                    certain level of environmental
                    enhancement.  Gold Track expands
                    upon these environmental
                    commitments, and  offers proportionally
                    greater recognition, as well as actual
                    federal regulatory flexibility to
                    participating facilities. NJDEP is
                    partnering with EPA in the Gold Track
                    effort under the XL program, so as to
                    be able to offer federal regulatory
                    flexibility to Gold Track participants.

 2813. IMPLEMENTATION OF
 CHANGES TO GOVERNMENTWIDE
 DEBARMENT AND SUSPENSION
 COMMON RULE
 Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
 Legal Authority: EO 12549; EO 12689
 and FASA
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 32
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: Periodically OMB amends the
 Governmentwide common rule for
 suspension and debarment of
 contractors and assistance participants
 who threaten the integrity of Federal
 programs because of criminal
 misconduct or poor performance. All
 agencies must issue changes to their
 individual codified versions to conform
 to the Common Rule. Recently, the
 Interagency Suspension and Debarment
 Coordinating Committee prepared
 recommendations for comprehensive
 changes to the Common Rule to
 conform to changes made in the
 Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)
 as a result of the Federal Acquisition
 Streamlining Act (FASA). In addition,
 several other proposals to improve or
 change the rule were recommended by
various agencies. In December 1996,
OMB declined to implement the
changes at that time due to differences
                   with some agencies about some changes
                   unrelated to those occasioned by FASA.
                   Among other things, FASA replaced the
                   small purchase threshold ($25,000)
                   with the simplified  acquisition amount
                   ($100,000). That change unintentionally
                   exposed certain EPA programs to
                   participation by contractors who may
                   have been debarred for serious
                   misconduct already. OMB has agreed to
                   permit agencies to amend the coverage
                   section of their individual agency rules
                   to reduce or eliminate exposure to
                   suspended or debarred persons.
                   EPA intends to issue a notice of
                   proposed rulemaking to amend 40 CFR
                   32.110 to reduce EPA exposure to such
                   consequences.

statutes prohibit discrimination on the
basis of race, color, national origin,
disability, and age in programs or
activities that receive Federal financial
assistance. In 1988, the Civil Rights
Restoration Act (CRRA) added
definitions of "program or activity" and
"program" to title VI and added a
definition of program or activity to
section 504 and the Age Discrimination
Act. The added definitions were
designed to clarify the broad scope of
coverage of recipients' programs or
activities under these statutes. The
promulgation of this proposed
regulation explicitly incorporates the
CRRA's definition of program or

REGULATIONS IMPLEMENTING THE
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 5 USC 552
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 2
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This document proposes
revisions to EPA's regulations under
the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
The FOIA regulations have been
streamlined and written in plain
English wherever possible. These
revisions reflect the principles
established by President Clinton and
                                     Attorney General Reno in their FOIA
                                     Policy Memoranda of October 4, 1993.
                                     They also reflect developments in the
                                     case law and include updated cost
                                     figures for calculating and charging
                                     fees. In addition, the proposed
                                     revisions include provisions
                                     implementing the Electronic Freedom
                                     of Information Act Amendments of
                                     1996. These revisions will simplify and
                                     expedite responses to FOIA requests.

Abstract: EPA regulations at 40 CFR
part 2, subpart B, provide procedures
for handling and disclosing information
claimed as confidential business
information (CBI). Although the current
regulations have succeeded in
protecting CBI,  changes in Agency
workload, practice, and statutory
authority have made it difficult to
handle CBI activities as expeditiously
as desired. EPA is examining its CBI
regulations to determine what changes
are  needed to make the regulations as
efficient and effective as possible.
Provision 40 CFR 2.205(c), which
automatically protects CBI
substantiations  claimed as confidential,
is being examined individually and as
part of the CBI regulations as a whole.

Priority: Other Significant

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 3 (New); 40 CFR

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The Cross-Media Electronic
Reporting (ER) and Recordkeeping Rule
will provide a uniform legal framework
for paperless electronic reporting and
recordkeeping, including electronic
signature/certification, across EPA's
environmental compliance programs.
The rule will both remove current legal
requirements for paper that create
obstacles to electronic reporting and
recordkeeping and provide for
mechanisms to assure the legal validity
and authenticity of electronic
documents and associated electronic
signatures, whether transmitted as
reports  or maintained as records. This
rule is important because the legal and
electronic signature issues remain the
chief obstacle to implementation of
paperless electronic reporting, and
affect the overall enforceability of
environmental programs both federally
and under State
delegation/authorization. Also, the
Government Paperwork Elimination Act
of 1998 requirements and the
Administrator's Reinventing
Environmental Information (REI) Action
Plan goal of universal ER availability
by 2003 can only be met if this
rulemaking has active participation by
the AA-ships and moves on a fast track.

These guidelines revise and replace
EPA Guidelines for Carcinogen Risk
Assessment published at 51 FR 33992,

provide EPA  staff and decision-makers
with the directions and perspectives
necessary to develop and use risk
assessments. The guidelines also
provide the general public with basic
information about the Agency's
approaches to risk assessment.
To develop guidelines the Agency must
find a balance between consistency and
innovation. Consistent risk assessments
provide consistent bases to support
regulatory decision-making. On the
other hand, innovation is necessary so
the Agency will base its decisions on

 112(R)(7); THIRD PARTY AUDIT
 PROVISIONS

 Priority: Other Significant
 Legal Authority: 42 USC 7412(r); 7601
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 68
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This action establishes
requirements, incentives, and
procedures for third party audits of
Risk Management Plans (RMPs) under
40 CFR part 68 that would reduce the
                   need for, and thus the incidence of,
                   government audits of RMPs submitted
                   by facilities that volunteer for such an
                   audit. In this context, a third party is
                   someone not employed by either an
                   RMP-regulated facility or a government
                   agency responsible for implementing
                   the RMP program (implementing
                   agency).
                   In the preamble to the final Risk
                   Management Program rule, EPA
                   endorsed the concept of using third
                   parties to assist in rule compliance and
                   oversight (61 FR 31705), provided that
                   any such proposal: not weaken the
                   compliance responsibilities of facility
                   owner/operators; offer cost savings and
                   benefits to the industry, community,
and implementing agencies that
significantly exceed the cost of
implementing the approach; lead to a
net increase in process safety,
particularly for smaller, less technically
sophisticated facilities; and promote
cost-effective agency prioritization of
oversight resources, However, no
criteria or requirements were specified
in the RMP rule to regulate the
activities of facilities, implementing
agencies, or third parties with respect
to third party assistance.
A facility's participation in the third
party audit  program proposed by this
action would be totally voluntary. For
facilities who choose not to participate
in the program, this action would have

 no effect. However if a facility
 participates, this regulation would
 establish the requirements and
 regulatory incentives for their
 participation. For participating sources,
 the action would offer the potential for
 reduced regulatory burden (while
 maintaining their compliance
 responsibilities), flexible auditing
 options, and other benefits, provided
 the source meets the applicable
 requirements described in the rule.
 This action also would specify the
 proposed qualification requirements for
 persons desiring to act as third party
 auditors.

 EPA believes that this action would
 promote increased safety among
 facilities covered by the risk.

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 60
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory, June

Abstract: The determination of volatile
organic compounds CVOCs) content of
a surface coating by reference Method
24 involves determination of its water
content and calculation of its VOC
content as the difference of the two
measurements (volatile content minus
water content). Method 24 is inherently
less precise for water-based coatings
than it is for solvent-based coatings and
the imprecision increases as water
content increases. This action will
amend Method 24 by adding a direct
measurement procedure for measuring
VOC content of water-based coatings.
This amendment will improve the
precision of Method 24 for water-based
coatings.

Legal Authority: 42 USC 7412(d)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 63
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,
November 15, 2000.
Abstract: This project is to develop
national emission standards for
hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) by
establishing maximum achievable
control technology (MACT) for facilities
manufacturing wood panels and
engineered wood products. MACT
standards are under development to
reduce the release of hazardous air
pollutants (HAP) from all industries to
protect the public health and
environment. Emissions of HAP from
this industry have been associated
with, but are not limited to, the drying
of wood and binders. This rule is
anticipated to apply to the manufacture
of products involving wood and some
kind of binder or bonding agent.  This
project may include, but is not limited
to, facilities that manufacture
waferboard, hardboard fiber board
(MDF), oriented strandboard (OSB),
medium density fiberboard,
particleboard, strawboard, hardwood
and softwood plywood, glue-laminated
lumber, laminated veneer lumber, and
engineered wood products. The source
category may also include lumber
drying kilns at sawmills which are
located on the same site as a facility
that manufactures any of the wood
products mentioned above. The project
may also include some coatings
operations. The  name of the source
category was formerly Plywood and
Particleboard MACT.

Abstract: The transportation
conformity rule, promulgated in
November 1993, ensures that
transportation and air quality planning
are consistent with Clean Air Act air
quality standards. The Open Market
Trading Guidance provides guidance to
states for establishing a method to
quantify emissions reductions (called
discrete emissions reductions or DERs)
that can be traded among parties and
how such trading should occur. This
action will amend the transportation
conformity rule to clarify how
emissions trading could be reconciled
in the conformity process.

TEST PROCEDURES
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7521(m)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 86 (Revision)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This action will streamline
the test procedure used to establish
compliance with evaporative emission
requirements for light duty vehicles
and trucks. The current test procedure
requires both two and three day diurnal
emission tests, as well as running-loss
testing. The revisions will delete the
three day requirement and add
flexibilities for running-loss
compliance.  This will enable
manufacturers to save significant
resources without any decrease in
environmental benefits.

Abstract: The Clean Air Act (CAA), as
amended in 1990, requires the EPA to
(1) publish an initial list of all
categories of major and area sources of
the hazardous air pollutants (HAPs)
listed in section 112(b) of the CAA, (2)
promulgate a schedule establishing a
date for the promulgation of emission
standards for each of the listed
categories of HAPs emission sources,
and (3) develop emission standards for
each source of HAPs. These standards
are to be technology-based and are to
require the maximum degree of
emission reduction determined to be
achievable by the Administrator. The
Agency has determined that the
application of asphalt or coal tar to
metal pipes may reasonably be
anticipated to emit several of the 189
HAPs listed in section  112(b) of the
CAA, As a consequence, a regulatory
development program is being pursued
for the asphalt/coal tar application on
metal pipes industry to promulgate
emission standards.

 Abstract: Performance Specification 16
 is being proposed to  provide
 performance criteria  for predictive
 emission monitoring systems.
 Predictive systems represent a new
 technology that uses  process
 information or parameters to predict
 pollutant emissions instead of directly
 measuring them. The Agency is
 allowing their use in recently-
 promulgated rules and they are being
 considered by a number of regulated
 facilities. The specification lists the
 requirements for acceptable systems
 that are met by passing tests that
 compare the monitoring system with
 standardized methods and audit gases
 to determine system accuracy and
 stability. Performance Specification 16
 will primarily apply to facilities whose
 emissions can  be predicted from
 process parameters such as combustion
 processes (including gas turbines and
 internal combustion engines).

 methodology used in subpart A of 40
 CFR 191, entitled Environmental
 Radiation Protection Standards for the
 Management and Disposal of Spent
 Nuclear Fuel, High-Level Waste and
 Transuranic Waste The current
 methodology is outdated. The dose
 methodology used in the rule published
 on September 19, 1985, was based on
 the target organ approach
 recommended by the International
 Commission on Radiological Protection
 (ICRP) in Report No. 2. Since that time
 science has progressed and a new
 methodology based on an effective dose
 equivalent approach is currently being
 recommended by the ICRP in Report
 No. 26. This action would update the
 40 CFR 191, subpart A dose limits
 published in 1985 from the target organ
to the state-of-the-art effective dose
 equivalent system. There would be no
 change in the level of protection, just
the scientific methodology for
 determining compliance with the levels
 of protection established in 1985.

Abstract: Section 112(c)(6) of the Clean
Air Act requires us to list categories
of sources for seven specific pollutants
(including mercury) assuring that
sources accounting for not less than 90
percent of the aggregate emissions of
each pollutant are subject to standards
pursuant to section 112(d)(2). Chlor-
alkali plants are among the source
categories listed to achieve the 90
percent goal for mercury. Currently, the
source category includes 11 plants
located in 10 states engaged in the
production of chlorine and caustic
using mercury cells. Together, these
plants account for 45 percent of the
nationwide mercury inventory for non-
combustion sources.

Legal Authority:  42 USC 7412 CAA sec
112
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 63
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,
November 15, 2000.
Abstract: The EPA has determined that
paint stripping operations emit at least
one of the HAP's listed in section
112(b) of the Clean Air Act. As a result,
the source category was included on
                     the initial list of HAP-emitting
                     categories scheduled for promulgation
                     within 10 years of enactment of the
                     Act. There are several emission
                     standards for other source categories
                     (for example, aerospace manufacturing
                     and wood furniture manufacturing) that
                     already address emissions from paint
                     stripping operations. We are currently
                     in the process of determining if there
                     are any other major sources of HAP
                     emissions from paint stripping
                     operations that are not already
                     regulated. Furthermore, HAP emissions
                     from  paint stripping operations that are
                     area sources will be regulated in the
                     future as part of the urban air toxics
                     strategy.

Abstract: The proposed rulemaking
will apply to existing and new
refractory products manufacturing
facilities. There are approximately 8
existing refractory products
manufacturing facilities in the United
States located at major source facilities.
It is estimated that no new refractory
products manufacturing facilities will
be built at least for the next 3 years.
The HAP that will be reduced by this
proposed rule are polycyclic organic
matter (POM), phenol, formaldehyde,
methanol,  and ethylene glycol.
Implementation of the proposed rule
would reduce emissions of air toxics
by approximately 132 tons per year, a
reduction of 46  percent from current
levels. No  significant adverse economic
impact is expected to occur as a result
of implementing this proposed
rulemaking. The capital cost associated
with the proposed rulemaking is
approximately $3.5 million. The total
annual cost of the proposed rulemaking
is approximately $1.7 million.

                    Abstract: The Clean Air Act, as
                    amended in 1990, requires EPA to
                    develop emission standards for sources
                    of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs).
                    Industrial boilers,
                    institutional/commercial boilers and
                    process heaters are among the potential
                    source categories to be regulated under
                    section 112  of the CAA.  Emissions of
                    HAPs will be addressed  by this
                    rulemaking  for both new and existing
                    sources. EPA promulgated an NSPS for
                    these source categories in 1987 and
                    1990. The standards for the NESHAP
                    are to be technology-based and are to
                    require the maximum achievable
                    control technology (MACT) as
                    described in section 112 of the CAA.

                                     Act Amendments of 1990 requires the
                                     EPA to develop emission standards for
                                     each major source category of
                                     hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). The
                                     standards are to be technology-based
                                     and are to require the maximum degree
                                     of emission reduction determined to be
                                     achievable by the Administrator of the
                                     EPA. The EPA has determined that
                                     some lime manufacturing plants may be
                                     major sources for one or more HAPs.
                                     As a consequence, a regulation
                                     (emission standards) is being developed
                                     for the lime manufacturing industry.

          categories to be regulated under section
          112  of the CAA. Emissions of HAPs
          will be addressed by this rulemaking
          for both new and existing sources. EPA
          promulgated an NSPS for this source
          category in 1980. The  standards for the
          NESHAP are to be technology-based
          and are to require the  maximum
          achievable control technology as
          described in section 112 of the CAA.

Abstract: Section 112 of the Clean Air
Act (Act), as amended November 1990,
requires the EPA to regulate categories
of major area sources of hazardous air
pollutants (HAPs) listed in section
112(b).  The EPA has determined that
sources that manufacture primary
magnesium may reasonably be
anticipated to emit several of the 189
HAPs listed (including chlorine and
hydrochloric acid) in quantities
 sufficient to designate them as a major
 source. As a consequence, primary
 magnesium refining is among the HAP
 emitting source  categories selected for
 regulation and is in the group of
 categories for which final rules are
 scheduled to be promulgated by
 November 15, 2002 (58 FR 63941,

 Abstract: This project is to develop
 national emission standards for
 hazardous air pollutants by establishing
 maximum achievable control
 technology (MACT) for facilities
 distributing organic liquids. MACT
 standards are under development to
 reduce the release of hazardous air
 pollutants (HAPs) from all industries to
 protect the public health and
 environment. This project should
 include but is not limited to those
 activities associated with the storage
 and distribution of organic liquids
 other than gasoline at sites that serve
 as distribution points from which
 organic liquids may be obtained for
 further use and  processing.

Abstract: During the development of
the National Emission Standard for
                     Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for
                     elastomers (Group I polymers and
                     resins) and thermoplastics (Group IV
                     polymers and resins) (RINs 2060-AD56
                     and 2060-AE37), many of the
                     provisions contained in the Hazardous
                     Organic NESHAP (HON) were
                     referenced directly by these polymers
                     and resins regulations due to
                     similarities in processes, emission
                     characteristics, and control
                     technologies. On January 17, 1997, the
                     EPA promulgated changes to the HON
                     to remove ambiguity, to clearly convey
                     EPA intent, and to make the rule easier
                     to understand and implement in
                     response to industry petitions. It is
                     necessary to make parallel changes to
                     the polymers and resins NESHAP;
                     otherwise inconsistencies will exist for
                     NESHAPs regulating similar source
                     categories. An ANPRM was published
                     in the Federal Register on 11/25/96 (61
                     FR 59849), to explain the nature of
                     changes planned.  Subsequently, six
                     litigants have petitioned for review of
                     the elastomers and thermoplastics
                     regulations. Four companies have
                     petitioned EPA to reconsider specific
                     provisions in the thermoplastics
                     regulation. Revisions will be proposed
                     to parallel HON changes and to resolve
                     petitioners' issues. There are no
                     impacts anticipated for small
                    businesses or State/local/tribal
                    governments.

2862. PROTECTION OF
STRATOSPHERIC OZONE:
RECONSIDERATION OF SECTION 608
SALES RESTRICTION
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7671(g) CAA
sec 608
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 82 subpart F
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract:  The rule will include the
reconsideration of the sales restriction
as it relates to split systems. The
Agency was petitioned to reconsider
the part of the sales restriction that
included the sale of pre-charged split
systems. It restricted such sales to
certified technicians. Since then, EPA
stayed that portion of the sales
restriction in response to the petition.
This rule  will include the
determination of the  Agency related to
the reconsideration. It addresses
environmental problems of ozone
depletion resulting from emissions of
chlorofluorocarbons,
hydrochlorofluorocarbons, and other
ozone-depleting substances. Through
restricting sales of certain pre-charged
items to persons certified as
technicians, emissions to the
atmosphere are decreased. The impact
on small businesses and governments
would be negligible, since persons can
become certified if the EPA
 determination is a full restriction. Most
businesses and governments will have
 at least one certified technician on
board. This action has no impact on
 small business and State, local, and
 tribal governments.

 Abstract: This proposed amendment
 will also allow hard chromium
 electroplating facilities using fume
 suppressants for  emission control to
 meet a surface tension limit similar to
 the requirements for decorative
 chromium electroplating and chromium
 anodizing facilities instead of the
 present requirement to meet an
 emission limit. Facilities choosing to
 use fume suppressants for emission
 control would be required to monitor
 the surface  tension at the same
 frequency currently required for
 decorative chromium and chromium
 anodizing tanks and demonstrate
 compliance with  the surface tension
 operating limit. Like decorative
 chromium electroplating and chromium
 anodizing facilities, hard chromium
 electroplating facilities would now be
 allowed to monitor surface tension to
 demonstrate compliance in lieu of
performance testing.

  2866. TRANSPORTATION
  CONFORMITY AMENDMENTS:
  RESPONSE TO MARCH 2, 1999,
  COURT DECISION
  Priority: Other Significant
  Legal Authority: 42 USC 7401-767lq
  CFR Citation: 40 CFR 93
  Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: The Clean Air Act requires
 EPA to promulgate rules that establish
 the criteria and procedures for
 determining whether highway and
 transit plans, programs, and projects
 conform to State air quality plans.
 Conformity means that the
 transportation actions will not cause or
 worsen violations of air quality
 standards or delay timely attainment of
 the standards. The original conformity
 rule was finalized on November 24,
 1993, and most recently amended on
 August 15, 1997. On March 2, 1999,
 the U.S. Court of Appeals overturned
 certain provisions of the 1997
 conformity amendments. This
 rulemaking will amend the conformity
 rule in compliance with the court
 decision. The rulemaking will formalize
 the May 14, 1999 EPA guidance and
 the June 18,  1999 DOT guidance that
 was issued to guide action on this issue
 until a rulemaking could be issued.
 Specifically, the rulemaking will clarify
 the types of projects that can be
 implemented in the absence of a
 conforming transportation plan. It will
 also explain EPA's process for
 reviewing newly submitted air quality
 plans and when those submissions can
 be used for conformity purposes,

                    Abstract: The Agency has received 4
                    petitions to remove certain pollutants
                    (i.e., methanol, methyl ethyl ketone,
                    ethylene glycol butyl ether, and methyl
                    isobutyl ketone) from the list of
                    hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) under
                    Section 112(b) of the Clean Air Act.
                    The Agency must review the petitions
                    and either grant or deny the petition
                    within 18 months of the date the
                    complete petition was received. If the
                    Agency grants a petition, a notice of
                    proposed rulemaking will be published
                    in the Federal Register, allowing the

  such denial. If the Agency grants a
  petition and ultimately removes the
  pollutant from the HAP list then
  sources emitting such pollutants would
  not be required to meet MACT
  emissions standards for the pollutant.
  If on the other hand, the Agency denies
  the petition, then MACT standards
  would be issued as currently planned
  under Section H2(c) and 112(d) of the
  Clean Air Act for sources emitting such
  pollutants. Depending on the 4
  individual determinations, the Agency
  will issue separate notices for each.

                     Abstract: As required by section 112(c)
                     of the Clean Air Act, the Environmental
                     Protection Agency has developed a list
                     of categories of sources of hazardous
                     air pollutants (HAP's). The HAP's are
                     listed in section 112 (b) of the Clean Air
                     Act. The Engine Test Facilities source
                     category is included on EPA's list of
                     sources of HAP's. The Engine Test
                     Facilities source category includes any
                     facility engaged in the testing of
                     stationary or mobile engines, including
                    turbines and reciprocating engines and
                    rocket engines. Aircraft engine testing
                    consists of facilities which perform
                    testing on uninstalled aircraft engines.
                    Non-aerospace engine test facilities
                    consist of facilities which perform
                    testing on uninstalled engines such as
                    automotive engines, stationary turbines,
                    1C engines, and diesel engines.

                   Abstract: The Environmental
                   Protection Agency (EPA) has had
  oversight and policy development
  authority for Inspection and
  Maintenance (I/M) programs since the
  passage of the Clean Air Act (CAA) in
  1970. The 1977 amendments to the
  CAA mandated I/M for certain areas
  with long-term air quality problems and
  the 1990 amendments set forth
  standards for implementation of I/M
  programs. EPA used the statutory
  requirements of the Act, including I/M
  requirements for Federal facilities, to
  promulgate regulations which states
  would use in the development of their
  I/M State Implementation Plans (SIPs).
  Those rule requirements effectively
  gave States certain authorities over the
  Federal government. The Department of
  Justice has now ruled that Federal
  sovereign immunity was not fully
 'waived under the CAA for those
  requirements and EPA should amend
  its rule to remove the requirement that
  States include those elements in their
  SIPs. EPA is proposing to: (1) Amend
 the Federal facilities I/M requirements
 by removing that section; (2) correct
 existing I/M SIP approval actions
 which include these elements; (3)
 establish  new Federal facilities I/M
 program requirements which Federal
 facilities in I/M program areas must
 meet in order to comply with the Act;
 and (4) designate for each State which
 section of the Act Federal agencies
 must comply with based on how that
 State promulgated its I/M regulations.
 These changes will have minimal to no
 impact on the States as no new
 requirements are being created. The
 States are under no obligation, legal or
 otherwise, to modify existing SIPs
 meeting the previously applicable
 requirements as a result of this action,
 nor will emissions reduction credit be
 affected. However, the changes will
 clarify for affected Federal facilities
 what they must do to meet the CAA
 requirements by establishing new
 regulations per those requirements.

2873. CONTROL OF METHYL
TERTIARY BUTYL ETHER (MTBE)
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: Not Yet Determined
CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined

Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: EPA is considering taking
action to control the use of Methyl
Tertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE), which is
an organic compound that is primarily
used as  a fuel additive in gasoline.
MTBE has been used to meet the
oxygen requirement established by the
Federal  Reformulated Gasoline Program
(RFC) established by the 1990
amendments to the Clean Air Act
(CAA). Over 85 percent of reformulated
gasoline contains MTBE. EPA is
concerned that the widespread use of
MTBE may have resulted in the
contamination of groundwater and
drinking water supplies, threatening
their future use. While current
detections levels are generally believed
to be below levels that may cause
public health concerns, low level
MTBE contamination may render water
unpotable due to offensive taste and
odor. In November of 1998, EPA
established a Blue Ribbon Panel to
investigate air quality benefits and
water quality concerns associated with
oxygenates, including MTBE, in
gasoline, and to provide independent
advice and recommendations on ways
to maintain air quality while protecting
water quality. In September, 1999, the
panel recommended that the use of
MTBE be substantially reduced. EPA is
now evaluating the Blue Ribbon Panel's
recommendations, and has conducted a
preliminary review of authorities
available to address  risks associated
with MTBE. EPA intends to issue an
Advance Notice of Proposed
Rulemaking to inform the public of this
preliminary inquiry, and to solicit
public comment on possible regulatory
action.

include fossil fuel combustion sources,
and possibly the handling and transfer
of mined ore containing naturally
occurring inorganic compounds.
Anticipated HAP emissions released
from these sources primarily include  -
formaldehyde, manganese, nickel,
arsenic, and chromium. The quantities
of HAP released are expected to exceed
major source levels.

developed pursuant to Section 112(c)
of the Clean Air Act (CAA). The most
current SC List was published on
November 18, 1999 (64 FR 63025).
Section 112(c)(9), which provides the
legislative authority and guidelines for
such actions, states that the
Administrator may delete a SC from the
list under Section 112(c), on petition
of any person or on the  Administrator's
own motion, whenever the
Administrator determines that no
source in the category emits hazardous
air pollutants (HAPs) in quantities

  which may cause a lifetime risk of
  cancer greater than 1 in one million
  to the individual in the population who
  is most exposed and that emissions
  from no source in the category exceed
  a level which is adequate to protect
  public health with an ample margin of
  safety and that no adverse
  environmental effect will result. As of
  August 30, 2001, 1 petition to delist
  a SC has been received. It contains
  information on HAP emissions,
  exposures, health effects, human risks,
  and potential ecological concerns as
  well as the petitioner's explanation
  •why the 2-Piece Can Manufacturing
  should be removed from the SC List.
  The EPA will conduct a comprehensive
  review of the petition received then
  decide whether to grant or deny the
  petition. Section 112(c)(9) requires that
 within 12 months of receipt of a
 petition, the Administrator shall either
 grant or deny the petition by publishing
 a written explanation of the reasons for
 the Administrator's decision. We
 believe that petitions to delist source
 categories are non-significant actions
 because  they do not meet any of the
 principles outlined in Section A above.

2876.  REVISING REGULATIONS ON
AMBIENT  AIR QUALITY MONITORING
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal  Authority: 42 USC 7401 et seq
                    CFR Citation: 40 CFR 58 (Revision); 40
                    CFR 53 (Revision); 40 CFR 50
                    (Revision)

                    Legal Deadline: None
                    Abstract: Air pollution control
                    authorities use air quality data to
                    determine compliance with the
                    National Ambient Air Quality
                    Standards and in subsequent work to
                    develop air pollution mitigation
                    strategies. The data come primarily
                    from ambient air monitoring stations
                    run by state and local agencies,
                    although federal, tribal, and industrial
                    organizations also run stations. The
                    design of the monitoring networks is
                    regulated under 40 CFR 58. This rule
                    was originally written in 1979 and
                    several revisions have been made in the
                    intervening years. Air pollution control
                    authorities have improved their parts of
                    the network in response to changes in
                    air quality, advances in the
                    understanding of the movements and
                    health effects of air pollutants, and
                    developments in air pollution
                    measurement technology. EPA has also
                    cooperated with air pollution control
                    authorities to improve the networks,
                    but we have not revised the applicable
                    regulations comprehensively. The
                    proposed revisions would remove real
                    or perceived constraints on redeploying
                    air monitoring stations; more accurately
                    reflect the roles of EPA and other
                    control authorities in designing,
                    reviewing, and modifying networks;
                    bring provisions related to quality
                    assurance up to date; and recognize
                    technological changes. The current
                    regulations require states to develop
                    plans to deploy air monitoring
                    networks, but they do not emphasize
                    administering the networks. States
                   generally develop new plans only when
                   new monitoring is needed, such as for
                   a new NAAQS. The regulations should
                   be revised to reflect the roles of EPA
                   and the state and local agencies.

                     Abstract: EPA is proposing to add
                     chlorobromomethane (CBM) to the list
                     of controlled substances subject to
                     production and consumption controls
                     in accordance with both the Montreal
                     Protocol on Substances that Deplete the
                     Ozone Layer (Protocol) and EPA's
                     regulations under the Clean Air Act
                     Amendments of 1990.  Today's action
                     proposes to create a new Group (Group
                     VIII) of class I substances for CBM, and
                     to designate the value of CBM's ozone
                     depleting potential as 0.12. In
                     accordance with the Protocol, today's
                     action proposes phasing out CBM
                     production and consumption upon
                     publication of the final rule with
                     permitted exemptions. Today's action
                     also proposes to restrict trade in CBM

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 1990 Amendments to
the Clean Air Act sections 111; 1990

sections 129; 1990 Amendments to the
Clean Air Act sections  301(a)(d)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 62

Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The Clean Air Act
Amendments of 1990 directed the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
to set emission guidelines for existing
incinerators combusting commercial or
industrial waste under sections 111 and
129. Final emission guidelines for
Commercial and Industrial Solid Waste
Incineration (CISWI) were published on
December 1, 2000 (see  65 FR 75338).
In accordance with section 129, any
State with affected sources must submit
a State plan by December 1, 2001
describing how the State will
implement the emission guidelines for
existing CISWI. Section 129 requires
the Administrator to develop and
implement a Federal plan for existing
CISWI units located in any State which
has not submitted an approvable plan
within 2 years of promulgation of the
emissions guidelines. In this CISWI
Federal plan rulemaking, EPA becomes
the implementing authority in those
instances where the State has failed to
submit a plan or a plan has not yet
been approved. Therefore, consistent
with section 129(b)(3) of the Act, EPA
is proposing a plan that applies to
CISWI in any State that has not
submitted an approvable plan within
the time allotted. This action makes no
changes to the requirements in the rule,
and is intended to fulfill EPA's duty
under section 129(b)(3) to promulgate
a Federal plan as a gap-filling measure
until the State fulfills its statutory
obligations. When the State submits an
approvable State Plan, the Federal plan
will no longer apply to units in that
State.

 RULE TO INCORPORATE SULFUR
 DIOXIDE MILESTONES AND
 BACKSTOP EMISSIONS TRADING
 PROGRAM FOR NINE WESTERN
 STATES

 7479; 42 USC 7491; 42 USC 7492; 42
 USC 7601; 42 USC 7602
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 51.309
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: This regulation is for an
 action anticipated by the regional haze
 rule that we published in July 199S.
 One portion of the regional haze rule
 was an optional visibility protection
 program for nine Western States. Part
 of this program for the West, a long-
 term program to reduce stationary
 source emissions of sulfur dioxide, was
 incomplete at the time of the 1999 rule.
 Accordingly, the rule required Western
 States to submit an Annex to an earlier
 report of the Grand Canyon Visibility
 Transport Commission. We required the
 Annex to contain sulfur dioxide
 milestones for the years 2003 to 2018,
to establish a program to track
 emissions from stationary sources over
this time period, and to provide the
 details of a market trading program that
would be triggered if a milestone is
 exceeded. The Western Regional Air
Partnership submitted the Annex on
September 29, 2000.  The purpose of
this rulemaking  is to determine
                                                         whether the Annex meets the
                                                         requirements of the regional haze rule
                                                         and the Clean Air Act, and if it does,
                                                         to amend the regional haze rule to
                                                         incorporate its provisions.

                                                         with the requirements in the NSPS to

                                                         (COM) to monitor opacity and report
                                                         periods when the COM indicated
                                                         greater than 3 percent opacity as
                                                         periods of excess emissions, and have

                                                         COM requirements. These concerns
                                                         arise from recent information that
                                                         indicate that COM readings may have
                                                         an error of up to 4 percent, which in
                                                         itself is greater than the 3 percent
                                                         excess emissions threshold. The EPA is
                                                         reconsidering the COM requirements,
                                                         and may amend the NSPS to add
                                                         alternative monitoring requirements.

 rule, which was promulgated on
 January 18, 2001. That rule established
 more stringent national emission
 standards for heavy-duty highway
 vehicles and engines for the 2007
 model year, and a technology-enabling
 sulfur limit of 15 ppm for highway
 diesel fuel beginning in 2006. In that
 rule, EPA recognized Alaska's unique
 geographical, meteorological, air
 quality, and economic factors and
 provided Alaska an opportunity to
 develop its own plan to transition to
 low-sulfur highway diesel fuel,  as an
 alternative to the national transition
 program. Our goal in offering this
 flexibility is to transition Alaska into
 the low-sulfur fuel program in a
 manner that minimizes costs, while
 ensuring that the new vehicles and
 engines receive the low-sulfur fuel they
 need. As stated in the Federal Register
 notice for the diesel rule, if Alaska
 submits an alternative plan by April 1,
 2002, and if EPA determines that it
 provides a reasonable alternative, EPA
 intends to initiate rulemaking and,
 within one year from the  date of
 Alaska's submittal, promulgate a final
 rule to incorporate the alternative plan.
 A stakeholder process to develop
 options is already underway in Alaska,
 and the State informed EPA that it
 intends to submit an alternative
 transition plan  hi late 2001 or early
 2002. This action will be  in response
 to that anticipated submittal.

 2887. MODIFICATION OF FEDERAL
 ON-BOARD DIAGNOSTIC
 REGULATIONS FOR 2004 MODEL
 YEAR VEHICLES BELOW 14,000 LBS
 Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
 Legal Authority: 12 USC 1701q
 CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: This rule proposes revisions
 to the existing Light-Duty On-Board
 Diagnostic Requirements, including
 revisions that will: (1) require vehicle
 manufacturers to monitor the catalyst
 for NOx emission performance in
 addition to existing requirements to
 monitor NMHC performance,
 whichever is more stringent; (2) require
 monitoring of the evaporative emissions
 systems for the presence of 0.020 leaks
 or greater and allow for non-intrusive,
 engine-off methods to perform
 monitoring instead of the current
 requirements to monitor for the
 presence of a 0.040 leak or greater
 during vehicle operation; (3) allow the
 use of the Control Area Network (CAN)
 Protocol (SAE 15765-4) for OBD
 communications in addition to the
 other allowable SAE (J1850, J1939) and
 ISO (9141, 14230-4); (4) new software
 and hardware changes to aid in OBD-
 I/M program implementation including
 adding vehicle identification number
 (VTN) to the generic datastream,
 confining the physical location of the
 data link connector, and allowing the
 use of the malfunction indicator lamp
 (MIL) and a special key sequence to
 indicate readiness; (5) add new generic
 data stream parameters to aid in the
 repair and diagnosis of vehicle
 malfunctions; (6) require manufacturers
 to record critical pieces of OBD
 information under the CAP 2000 In-Use
 Verification Program (IUVP); and (7)
 establish new OBD in-use performance
 demonstration standards used to
 determine appropriate frequency of
monitoring in the real world; such in-
use performance standards do not
 currently exist which places a greater
burden on our in-use program.

 2888. MODIFICATION  OF AUTHORITY
 TO GRANT ALTERNATIVE METHOD
 APPROVALS
 Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
 Legal Authority: Not Yet Determined
 CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract:  Currently, stationary source
 regulations cite specific test methods to
 demonstrate compliance. If a source
 locates a test method which will
 measure the regulated  pollutant(s) with
 similar precision and accuracy to the
 method cited in the  regulation, and
 would like to use the alternative
 method, the source must petition the
 EPA (along with data documenting the
 applicability of the alternative) to allow
 the alternative method. Each of these
 alternative method approvals by letter
 may currently only be  granted to a
 specific source. Source category-wide
 approvals  must be published  for
 comment in the Federal Register. Due
 to budgetary and time  constraints, the
 process constrains industry trade
 associations from  developing and
 submitting alternative test methods.
 Therefore, the purpose of this
 rulemaking is to modify the regulations
 to allow source category-wide
 alternative method approvals  to be
issued by letter.

Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This action proposes
Performance Specification 17 (PS-17),
Quality Assurance (QA) Procedure 4,
and amendments to Appendix F, QA
Procedure 1. Performance Specification
17 and QA Procedure 4 apply to
continuous parameter monitoring
systems  (CPMS). Many of the rules
promulgated under 40 GFR part 63
require owners and operators of
affected  emission units to install and
operate CPMS to monitor various
parameters, such as temperature,
pressure, flow rate, and pH, associated
with the operation and performance of
emission control devices. However,
few, if any, of those rules specify
complete procedures for ensuring the
quality of the data measured by CPMS.
The proposed PS-17 establishes
procedures and other requirements that
will ensure that those CPMS are
properly selected, installed, and placed
into operation. The proposed QA
Procedure 4 specifies procedures that
will ensure that those CPMS provide
quality data on an ongoing basis. Both
PS-17 and QA  Procedure 4 will help
to ensure compliance with emission
limitations established under 40 CFR
part 63. Procedure 1 of Appendix F
currently addresses QA procedures for
continuous emission monitoring
systems  (GEMS) that measure a single
pollutant. The  proposed amendments to
QA Procedure  1 broaden the procedure
to address the unique requirements of
GEMS that are  used for monitoring
multiple pollutants. Because several of
the regulations promulgated under 40
CFR part 63 require multiple pollutant

CFR 60 app F
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This action would repropose
some monitoring specifications that
were originally included in an OSWER
proposal to regulate air emissions from
hazardous waste combustors (as
explained further below). It revises
several standards and requirements
related to continuous emission
monitoring systems for particulate
matter (PM). These include:
specifications and test procedures
known as Performance Specification 11
(PS-11), and quality assurance
requirements known as Procedure  2.
The proposed revisions clarify and
update performance standards and
monitoring requirements for facilities
required to install and use continuous
monitoring equipment to measure
particulate matter emissions from
stacks and ducts. The action does not
change any emission standards or add
any additional recordkeeping
requirements. This action is a
supplement to actions by EPA's
OSWER that included proposed
regulations for hazardous waste

 amount of time that has passed since
 the last proposal was published
 (December 30, 1997) and the significant
 amount of knowledge we have recently
 gained from our field studies, we
 believe that  a supplemental proposal

8-HOUR OZONE NAAQS

and the private sector.
Legal Authority: 42  USC 7408; 42 USC
7410; 42 USC 7501-7511f; 42 USC
7601(a)(l)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 51 (revision)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This rule would provide
specific requirements for State and
local air pollution control agencies to
prepare State implementation plans
(SIPs) under the 8-hour national
ambient air quality standard (NAAQS)
for ozone, published by EPA on July
18, 1997. The Clean Air Act requires
EPA to set ambient air quality
standards and requires States to submit
SIPs to implement those standards. The
1997 standards were challenged in
court, but in February 2001, the
Supreme Court determined that EPA
has authority to implement a revised
ozone standard, but  ruled that EPA
must reconsider its implementation
plan for moving from the 1-hour
standard to the revised standard. The
Supreme Court identified conflicts
between different parts of the Clean Air
Act related to implementation of a
revised NAAQS, provided some
direction to EPA for resolving the
conflicts, and left it  to EPA to develop
a reasonable approach for
implementation. Thus, this rulemaking
must address the requirements of the
Clean Air Act and the Supreme Court's
ruling.
This rule would provide detailed
provisions to address the Clean Air
Act's requirements for State
Implementation Plans (SIPs) and would
thus affect State and local air agencies.
States with areas that are not attaining
the 8-hour ozone NAAQS will have to
develop — as part of their SIPs —
emission limits and other requirements
to attain the NAAQS within the
timeframes set forth in the Clean Air
Act.
Tribal lands that are not attaining the
8-hour ozone standard may-be affected,
and could voluntarily submit a Tribal
Implementation Plan (TIP), but would
not be required to submit a TIP. In
cases where a TIP is not submitted,
EPA would have the responsibility for
planning in those areas.

2896. • MODIFICATION OF ANTI-
DUMPING BASELINES FOR
GASOLINE PRODUCED OR
IMPORTED FOR USE IN HAWAII,
ALASKA AND THE U.S. TERRITORIES
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7414; 42 USC
7545; 42 USC 7601(a)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 80 (Revision)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Dumping refers to the
practice whereby refiners making clean
fuels for certain markets (such as
reformulated gasoline for clean-air
purposes) take the pollutants removed
from the clean fuels and dump them
into other fuels they are producing for
other markets. This, if allowed, would
make those other fuels even dirtier than
before, and so the Clean Air Act
prohibits this practice. EPA has existing
anti-dumping rules on the books that
codify this Clean Air Act prohibition.
This action proposes to allow refiners
and importers of conventional gasoline
produced or imported for use in
Hawaii, Alaska, the Commonwealth of
Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam
and the Commonwealth of the Northern
Mariana Islands to petition EPA to
modify their baselines to use the most
appropriate seasonal baseline and
Complex Model for purposes of
compliance with the RFG program's
anti-dumping requirements.
Specifically, this action would allow
refiners and importers to petition EPA
to use the summer Complex Model for
all anti-dumping baseline and
compliance determinations for
conventional gasoline produced or
imported for use in Hawaii, the
Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the
Virgin Islands, Guam and the
Commonwealth of the Northern
Mariana Islands. This action would
allow refiners and importers to petition
EPA to use the winter Complex Model
for all anti-dumping baseline and
compliance purposes in Alaska. We are
proposing this action to address certain
inconsistencies  in the RFG program's
anti-dumping provisions which may
have significant unintended negative
impacts on refiners and importers. In
addition, this action proposes to modify
the anti-dumping provisions to address
compliance in certain situations where
a refinery becomes non-operational
during the annual averaging period.
This action is intended to address
compliance issues where a refinery
does not produce sufficient summer
gasoline to offset the higher emissions
of winter gasoline due to the  refinery
becoming non-operational during the
annual averaging period. Today's
proposed actions would not
compromise the environmental goals of
the RFG program, or result in any
environmental degradation. Today's
proposed actions would not have any
negative impact on small businesses or
State/local/tribal governments.

2897. • PERFORMANCE-BASED
MEASUREMENT SYSTEM FOR FUELS:
CRITERIA FOR SELF-QUALIFYING
ALTERNATIVE TEST METHODS;
DESCRIPTION OF OPTIONAL
STATISTICAL QUALITY CONTROL
MEASURES
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7545
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 80
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Transportation fuels (like
gasoline and diesel fuel) are regulated
by EPA under the Clean Air Act to
control the emissions that result when
they are burned in engines, and also
to protect engines' emission control
equipment. Fuels regulations require
measurement of various of the fuels'
properties, and prescribe designated
analytical methods for that purpose.
This regulation is intended to provide
a way for regulated parties to self-
qualify alternatives to the designated
measurement methods that may be
cheaper, quicker, simpler, more
amenable to automation, or otherwise
preferable. The regulation will also
prescribe a minimum level of statistical
quality control for all fuels test
methods, designated or alternative. The
regulations should quicken the
adoption of new measurement
technologies by removing the need for
multiple method-specific rule-makings,
but to do so in a way that will not
degrade the performance of the overall
measurement system. The qualification
criteria are designed to admit only
methods that are as precise as the
designated methods and can be made
to accurately predict designated method
measurements. Introduction of
statistical quality control for all
methods should improve measurement
precision and accuracy in actual        NPRM
practice across all methods.             Final Action

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 82 (Revision)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This rule proposes to add n-
propylbromide (nPB) to the list of
acceptable substitutes for class I and
class II ozone depleting substances
used as solvents for general metals,
precision, and electronics cleaning, as
well as in aerosol solvent applications.
This would provide another alternative
to solvents with higher ozone depletion
potential that industry is interested in
using, The rule would propose finding
nPB not acceptable as a substitute for
use in adhesives due to its toxicity and
the greater emissions from that
application. The rule also would
propose specific conditions on the use
of nPB as a solvent. These might
include limiting the specific
applications  in which it may be used
to those with low emissions and
requiring exposure limits consistent
with industry practices. This will
ensure that nPB is used in a manner
that is safe and environmentally
protective. OSHA does not currently
regulate nPB. EPA would revise our

 2900. • CONTROL OF EMISSIONS OF
 AIR POLLUTION FROM NONROAD
 DIESEL ENGINES AND FUEL
 Priority: Economically Significant.
 Major under 5 USC 801.
 Unfunded Mandates: This action may
 affect the private sector under PL 104-
 4.
 Legal Authority: CAA
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 89
 Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: On October 23,1998, EPA
finalized emission standards for
nonroad compression ignition (i.e.,
diesel) engines for engines over 37
kW(50hp). The regulation reduced the
NOx + HC emissions standard by 30%
to 37% (based on the power class) from
the previous 6.9 g/hp-hr NOx and 1.0
g/hp-hr HC standard beginning in 1999.
As a follow-up to that 1998 rulemaking,
the Agency is now undertaking a
technology review, pursuant to the
Clean Air Act, to assess whether more
stringent standards are now feasible,
and to promulgate such standards if the
findings are positive. The technology
review will reassess the NOx + HC
standards and will set the next phase
of particulate matter standards for over
37 kW and up to 560 kW. The emission
limits will also be reexamined for the
under 37 kW scheduled for
implementation in 2004. The issue of
the sulfur content of nonroad diesel
fuel will be raised and consideration
given to lowering the fuel sulfur level
with an ultimate 15 ppm cap. The
certification duty cycle for this class of
engines will also be revisited to
implement a transient duty cycle  that
gives some assurance of better in-use
control of particulate matter.

activities that should be included. The
new definition will provide a level of
certainty for regulated entities and
regulatory agencies with respect to
program applicability. While this rule
will affect small businesses and
state/local/tribal governments, this rule
is intended to simplify the regulatory
process and decrease the burden on
these entities.

                    Abstract: This action is to revise the
                    CAA new source review (NSR)
                    regulations, which govern the
                    preconstruction air quality review and
                    permitting programs that are
                    implemented by States and the Federal
                    Government for new and modified
                    major stationary sources of air
                    pollution. This rulemaking will
                    deregulate, that is,  exclude from major
                    NSR program requirements those
                    activities of sources that, with respect
                    to air pollution, have little
                    environmental impact. The rulemaking
                    will encourage pollution control and
                    pollution prevention projects at existing
                    sources. Control technology
                    requirements will be clarified with
                    respect to when and how they apply
                    to sources that are covered. The action
                    seeks to more clearly define  the
                    appropriate roles and requirements of
                    sources, permitting authorities and
                    Federal land managers and EPA in the
                    protection of air-quality-related values
                    in Federal Class I areas (i.e., certain
                    national parks  and wilderness areas)
                    under the NSR regulations. State, local,
                    and tribal permitting agencies will be
 given more flexibility to implement
 program requirements in a manner that
 meets their specific air quality
 management needs. Consequently, the
 rulemaking decreases the number of
 activities that are subject to NSR
 requirements and also expedites the
 permitting process for those sources
 that are subject to NSR. This action is
 designed to reduce the regulatory
 burden over all industries without
 respect to commercial size or capacity;
 therefore, it should have no detrimental
 impact on small businesses. This action
 also addresses several pending petitions
 for judicial review and administrative
 action pertaining to NSR applicability
 requirements and control technology
 review requirements. Regulations that
 will be affected are State
 implementation plan requirements for
 review of new sources and
 modifications to existing sources (40
 CFR 51.160-166), the Federal
 prevention of significant deterioration
 program (40 CFR 52.21), and Federal
 restriction on new source construction
 (40 CFR 52.24). Finally, this NSR
 Improvement effort also includes a
 separate rulemaking (SAN 4390, Utility
 Sector New Source Review (NSR)
 Alternative Compliance Program),
 which will provide industries with the
 flexibility to focus more on existing
 pollution sources, with the goal of
 achieving as good or better
 environmental results than could be
 achieved by focusing strictly on new
 sources.

 Abstract: The Clean Air Act
 Amendments of 1990 listed certain
 isocyanate compounds as hazardous air
 pollutants (HAPs). The Agency does
 not have any published test methods
 that would measure air emissions of
 these isocyanate compounds from
 stationary sources. This action would'
 add a validated test method to measure
 isocyanate emissions to appendix M of
 part 51. Test methods in part 51 can
 be adopted by any State for use in any
 regulation that requires the
 measurement of any of the isocyanate
 compounds on the HAP list. This
 action would not impose any new
regulatory requirements that do not
already exist. It should benefit State
governments by providing them with a
validated test procedure for measuring
the emissions of isocyanate
compounds.

Abstract: This action will ease the
burden of certification for both Original
Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and
after-market conversion entities. This
action will, for vehicles and engines
meeting LEV emission standards,
broaden the definition of the term
dedicated fuel system, broaden the
criteria for engine families, and provide
an exemption from certification fees.
This action is not a deregulatory action.
This action will provide another means
for small business to remain active
entities in supplying alternatively
fueled vehicles to the market place. The
above three changes are intended to
reduce the cost of complying with the
requirements of certification, and small
business  will benefit from these
changes.  This action will enhance the
ability of the regulated industry to
provide alternatively fueled vehicles to
the consumer in support of the
Executive Order 13031.

Abstract: The Stratospheric Protection
Division currently oversees an
allowance allocation system for the
class I ozone-depleting substances. An
allowance allocation system for class II
ozone-depleting substances or
hydrochloroflurocarbons (HCFCs) had
not been established prior to 1998
because consumption figures had
hovered around 80% of the cap
imposed by the Montreal Protocol in
1992. U.S. consumption for 1999
through 2001 has been fluctuating
between 80% and 95%. In 1999, the
Protocol imposed a production cap
effective January 1, 2004. An  allowance
allocation system for HCFCs will allow
the U.S. to remain under the
consumption and production  caps. This
rule also contains the mechanisn to
implement the phaseout of HCFC-141b,
effective January 1, 2003.

                   Abstract: Title III of the Clean Air Act
                   Amendments of 1990 requires EPA to
                   develop emission standards for each
                   major source category of hazardous air
                   pollutants (HAPs). The standards are to
                   be technology-based and are to require
                   the maximum degree  of emission
                   reduction determined to be achievable
                   by the administrator of the EPA. The
                   EPA has determined that some plants
                   may be  major sources for one or more
                   HAPs. As a consequence, a regulation
                   (emission standards) is being developed
                   for the polyvinyl chloride industry, to
                   be promulgated by November 15, 2000.

  2915. PHASE I FEDERAL
  IMPLEMENTATION PLANS (FIPS) TO
  REDUCE THE REGIONAL
  TRANSPORT OF OZONE IN THE
  EASTERN UNITED STATES
  Priority: Economically Significant.
  Major under 5 USC 801.
  Unfunded Mandates: This  action may
  affect State, local or tribal governments
  and the private sector.
  Legal Authority: 42 USC 7410
  CFR Citation: 40 CFR 52; 40 CFR 97
 Legal Deadline: NPRM, Statutory,
 January 25, 2003, EPA is required to
 promulgate FIPs by January 25 2003
 unless States submit approvable plans.
 Abstract: This action would
 promulgate Federal Implementation
 Plans (FIPs) which require nitrogen
 oxides (NOx) emissions decreases. The
 intended effect is to reduce the
 transport of ozone (smog) pollution and
 one of its main precursors — NOx —
 across State boundaries in the eastern
 half of the United States. On October
 27,1998, EPA published a final rule
 (the NOx SIP Call) which allowed
 States 12 months to develop, adopt,
 and submit revisions to their State
 Implementation Plans (SIPs) to address
 the transport problem. The
 Administrator is required to promulgate
 a FE? within 2 years of: (1) finding that
 a State has failed to make a required
 submittal or (2) finding that a submittal
 is not complete or (3) disapproving a
 SIP submittal. On June 22, 2000, the
 B.C. Court of Appeals assigned a new
 SIP submittal date of October 30, 2000.
 Eleven States (Virginia, West Virginia,
 Alabama, Kentucky, North Carolina,
 South Carolina, Tennessee, Illinois,
 Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio) and the
 District of Columbia had not submitted
 adequate SIPs, as announced in a
 findings rule published on December
 26, 2000. EPA is continuing to work
 with these States to assist them in
 adopting State plans that meet the
requirements of the NOx SIP Call; 6
 States and D.C. recently submitted fully
approvable plans. (Note: The FIPs
discussed here will apply to all
elements of the NOx SIP call that were
                    not remanded to EPA by the court on
                    March 3, 2000. The portions of the SIP
                    call that were remanded to EPA will
                    be covered under Phase 2 SIPs, and if
                    necessary, separate FIP actions will be
                    prepared for those.)

 2916. NESHAP: WET-FORMED
 FIBERGLASS MAT PRODUCTION

 Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

 Legal Authority: 42 USC  7412

 CFR  Citation: 40 CFR 63

 Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory, April
 1, 2001.

 Abstract: The CAA required the EPA
 to publish an initial list of all  categories
 of major and area sources of hazardous
 air pollutants (HAPs) listed in section
 112(b) of the CAA and to  establish and
 meet dates for promulgation of
 emission standards for each of the
 listed categories of HAP emissions
 sources. The wet-formed fiberglass mat
 production industry is not included in
 the initial list of categories for
 standards development but information
 available to the Administrator  suggests
 that the industry is a major source of
 HAP emissions and, as such, emission
 standards shall be developed for this
 industry. The standards are to  be
 technology-based and are to require the
 maximum degree of reduction
 determined to be achievable by the
 Administrator. The EPA has
 determined that the wet-formed
 fiberglass mat production industry may
 be reasonably expected to  emit one of
 the pollutants listed in section 112(b)
 of the CAA. The purpose of this action
 is to pursue a regulatory development
program such that emission standards
may be promulgated for this industry.
Emission standards for this industry
were proposed on May 26, 2000.

REQUIREMENT FOR TITLE V
OPERATING
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7426
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 52; 40 CFR 75;
40 CFR 97
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract:  The EPA is proposing to
revise the Section 126 Rule in light of
the March 3, 2000 court decision on
the NOx SIP Call. The court vacated,
and remanded to EPA for further
consideration, the inclusion of Georgia
and Missouri in the NOx SIP  Call in
light of the Ozone Transport
Assessment Group conclusions that
emissions from coarse grid portions of
States did not merit controls.  The
reasoning of the Court regarding the
significance of NOx emissions from
sources in Georgia and Missouri calls
into question the inclusion of the
coarse grid portion of Michigan in the
NOx SIP Call. In a separate proposal,
EPA is proposing to withdraw the NOx
SIP Call requirements for the  Michigan
coarse grid area. The Section  126 Rule
is based on many of the same analyses
and information used for the  NOx SEP
call and covers part of Michigan. Thus,
EPA is proposing to withdraw its
section 126 findings and control
requirements with respect to  sources
located in the small part of the coarse
grid portion of Michigan that is
currently covered by the Section 126
Rule. The EPA has not  identified any
existing section 126 sources that would
be affected by the proposal, however
this proposal would eliminate findings
and control requirements for  new
sources locating in the  coarse grid. This
proposal does not create any  new
requirements, thus there are no
associated costs. The EPA is also
proposing to revise the definition of
applicable requirement for title V
operating permit programs by providing
expressly that any standard or other
requirement under section 126 is an
applicable requirement and must be
included in operating permits issued
under title V of the CAA.

                    Abstract: The General Provisions
                    (subpart A) were promulgated on
                    March 16, 1994 (59 FR 12408), The
                    General Provisions create the technical
                    and administrative framework and
                    establish  general procedures and
                    criteria for implementing MACT
                    standards. On May 16, 1994, six
                    litigants filed petitions for EPA to
                   review certain provisions of the General
                   Provisions. Subpart B, the procedures
                   for implementing section 112(j), was
                   promulgated on May 26, 1994. In June,
                   1994 litigants filed petitions for EPA
                   to review the promulgated procedures.
                   As a result of the litigation, it is
                   anticipated that a number of technical
                   and administrative amendments to
                   subparts A and B will be proposed,

                     Abstract: This is a 10-year MACT
                     covering the HAP emissions from the
                     manufacturing of Rubber tires, The
                     emission sources associated with the
                     rubber compound mixing (banbury);
                     extruding calendaring; building; curing
                     and finishing are covered in this
                     MACT. Forty-one facilities have been
                     initially identified. This includes
                     approximately 35 facilities of at least
                     10 tpy and 26 facilities  of at least 25
                     tpy. Emissions are primarily associated
                     with rubber processing and the use of
                     HAP bearing solvent and cements.
                     Several facilities have eliminated
                     through substitution much of the HAP
                     bearing solvent and cements. However,
                     evaluation of the MACT and separation
                     of the rubber processing emissions from
                     HAP bearing solvents and cement will
                     reduce the number of affected facilities
                     to about 30. In addition, the tire cord
                     coating operations will also be
                     included. Typically these facilities are
                     separate non-colocated operations. The
                    major pollutant associated with tire
                    cord is formaldehyde. There are
                    approximately, 12 affected  major
                    facilities.

Abstract: The CAA required EPA to
publish an initial list of all categories
of major and area sources of hazardous
air pollutants (HAPs) listed in section
112(b) of the CAA and to establish and
meet dates for promulgation of
emissions standards for each of the
listed categories of HAP emissions
sources. The standards are to be
technology-based and are to require the
maximum degree of reduction
determined to be achievable by the
Administrator. The EPA has
determined that the asphalt roofing and
processing industry may be reasonably
anticipated to emit one or more of the
pollutants listed in section  112(b) of the
CAA. As a consequence, the source
category is included on the initial list
of HAP-emitting categories  scheduled
for standards promulgation within ten
years of enactment of the CAA
Amendments of 1990. The purpose of
this action is to pursue a regulatory
development program such that
emission standards may be proposed
and promulgated according to the
mandated schedule.

 Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory, May
 1, 2001.
 Abstract: Title IE of the Clean Air Act
 requires EPA to develop air emission
 standards for facilities that emit any of
 the 189 hazardous air pollutants. This
 action will develop a MACT standard
 for sources involved in leather finishing
 operations. Facilities involved in these
 operations release over 1.7 million
 pounds of hazardous air pollutants per
 year. Regulation of these facilities will
 result in a reduction of the emissions

                    Abstract: This action will amend the
                    regulations in 40 CFR part 85, subpart
                    P to allow entry into the United States
                    of vehicles which are originally sold in
                    Canada and which are identical to their
                    U.S. counterparts, without obtaining a
                    certificate of conformity from EPA. This
                    action is in response to a petition for
                    review of import rules. The final rule
                    also will address certain other issues
                    in part 85, subpart P and subpart R,
                    including: (1) formalizing a long-
                    standing EPA policy regarding the
                    importation of owned vehicles that are
                    proven to be identical to a vehicle
                    certified for sale in the United States;
                    (2) establishing new emission standards
                    applicable to imported nonconforming
                    vehicles; (3) clarifying the regulatory
                    language that concerns exclusions and
                    exemptions from meeting Federal
                    emission requirements; and (4)
                    providing several minor clarifications
                    to the existing regulations.

 Abstract: Several of the source
 categories that are subject to MACT
 (maximum achievable control
 technology) standards contain only a
 few sources (e.g., less than five). EPA
 plans to develop a generic MACT
 standard for these source categories.
 Given the relatively few affected
 sources caught by the generic standard,
 the overall cost and environmental
 effects of this action are expected to
 be small, nationally.

Abstract: On October 27,1998 (63 FR
57355),  EPA issued a rule to reduce
smog in the eastern half of the country.
The rule required 22 States and the
District  of Columbia to reduce
emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx),
which reacts with other chemicals in
the atmosphere to form smog. EPA
required these reductions because
pollution from each of these States  was
transported by the wind and
significantly contributed to unhealthy
air quality in downwind states. In
response to litigation from several
parties on the NOx SIP call, the United
States Court of Appeals for the District
of Columbia issued a decision on
March 3, 2000 making it clear that EPA
and States can and should move
forward to implement this regional
strategy. The ruling remanded certain
relatively minor portions of the original
rule back to the EPA. This rulemaking
covers the portion of the rule associated
with the remanded issues: certain
cogeneration units, internal combustion
engines, the partial State requirements
for Georgia and Missouri and the
exclusion of Wisconsin. In this
rulemaking, EPA will consider the
partial State issue  for Alabama and
Michigan and propose SEP submittal
dates and compliance dates as well.
The D.C. Circuit Court also remanded,
or remanded and vacated, the
cogeneration unit issue in decisions on
the NOx SB? Call Technical
Amendments, and Section 126 Rule on
June 8, 2001 and May 15, 2001,
respectively. These remands will also
be addressed in this rulemaking.

PURPOSE OF REDUCING
INTERSTATE OZONE TRANSPORT
Priority: Economically Significant.
Major under 5 USC 801.
Legal Authority: Not Yet Determined
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 51
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The Clean Air Act (CAA)
requires that a state implementation
plan (SIP) contain provisions to prevent
a States' facilities or sources from
contributing significantly to air
pollution that is transported downwind
to other States, exacerbating their
inability to meet the national ambient
air quality standards for ozone.

 33788
Federal Register/Vol. 67, No. 92/Monday, May 13,  2002/Unified Agenda
 EPA—Clean  Air Act (CAA)
                                                                            Final Rule Stage
 Through a 2-year effort known as the
 Ozone Transport Assessment Group
 (OTAG) , EPA worked in partnership
 with the 37 easternmost States and the
 District of Columbia, industry
 representatives, and environmental
 groups to address ozone precursor and
 ozone transport. This multi-year
 collaboration resulted in the most
 comprehensive analysis of ozone
 transport ever conducted.  The OTAG
 States voted in favor of a range of
 strategies to reduce nitrogen oxide
 emissions from utilities and other major
 sources. Building on the
 recommendations of OTAG, EPA issued
 a rule known as the NOx SIP Call
 (10/27/98, 63 FR 57355) requiring 22
 States and the District of Columbia to
 submit revisions to their SIPs to
 address the regional transport of
 nitrogen oxides (a precursor to ozone
 formation known as NOx). By reducing
 emissions of NOx, the actions directed
 by these plans will decrease the
 formation and transport of ozone across
 State boundaries in the eastern half of
 the United States. This rule was
 challenged in court, and on March 3,
 2000, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the
 District of Columbia issued a decision
 largely upholding the NOx SIP Call, but
 remanded four narrow issues to EPA
 for further rulemaking action. In an
 August 30, 2000 Court Order, emission
 reduction measures are required to be
 in place by May 31, 2004.  On June 8,
 2001, the Court made a related decision
 concerning the NOx SIP Call Technical
 Amendment rulemakings which largely
 upheld Phase I of the NOx SEP Call,
 but remanded one issue to EPA. EPA
 is now addressing in a separate
 rulemaking the remanded issues
 mentioned above (see SAN 4433 in
 today's Regulatory Agenda). Another
 remanded issue dealing with growth
 projections is being addressed
 separately. A notice of data availability
 was published on 8/3/01 which made
 new data publicly available for notice-
 and-comment. A second notice of data
 availability was published  on March
 11, 2002 listing additional  items which
 were made publicly available. Final
 action is expected soon. In addition to
 the SIP Call provisions, Federal
 Implementation Plans (FTPs) may also
 ba needed to reduce regional transport
 if any affected State fails to adequately
 revise its SEP to comply with the NOx
 SEP call (see SAN 4096 in today's
Regulatory Agenda). In addition to the
 SEP Call remedy, the Clean Air Act also
                     gave States the right to petition EPA
                     to take other Federal action to prevent
                     ozone transport that affects downwind
                     States. Accordingly, under section 126
                     of the CAA, eight Northeastern States

63 standards to reflect changes in
delegation provisions. We are also
revising some sections in the part 63
regulations to clarify what are
standards and what are compliance
assurance measures. The benefits of the
changes will include clarifying what
authorities in each standard can be
delegated to State and local air
pollution control agencies and meshing
the standards with revisions previously
made to other part 63 regulations.

Abstract: To meet the Clean Air Act's
requirements, final regional haze
regulations were published in the
Federal Register on July 1, 1999 (64 FR
35714]. These regulations include, in
section 51.308(e), a requirement for best
available retrofit technology (BART) for
certain types of existing stationary
sources of air pollutants. In the
preamble to the regional haze rule, we
committed to issuing further guidelines
to clarify the BART requirements. The
purpose of this rulemaking is to
provide those BART guidelines.

Abstract: The purpose of these
proposed revisions is to modify existing
procedures for monitoring and
reporting NOx and SO2 emissions for
sources affected by the Acid Rain
                    Program, the Federal NOx Budget
                    Trading Program, and the October 27,
                    1998 NOx SIP call. The proposed
                    changes will streamline part 75 by
                    removing outdated provisions and give
                    electricity generators added flexibility
                    with the monitoring and reporting
                    requirements; tighten the calibration
                    error limit for some units to be more
                    in line with industry's current accepted
                    technical specifications; make technical
                    corrections and changes necessary to
                    correct printing, typographical, and
                    grammatical errors in existing rules;
                    and correct/clarify cross references
                    between the subject Parts to ensure

                    Abstract: The Clean Air Act
                    Amendments of 1990 directed the EPA
                    to set emission guidelines for existing
                    municipal waste  combustion units
                    (MWCs) under sections 111 and 129.
                    On 12/19/95, the EPA adopted
                    emission guidelines for MWCs under
                    the authority of sections lll(d) and 129
                    of the Clean Air Act. These emission
                    guidelines covered  all MWC units
                    located at plants  with an aggregate
plant combustion capacity larger than
35 tons per day of municipal solid
waste. Subsequent litigation cancelled
the emission guidelines for small MWC
units, but the Court directed EPA to
adopt a new rule for small MWC units.
This rule was adopted on December 6,
2000. This action is a follow-on activity
to this rulemaking. In this proposed
MWC Federal Plan for small units, EPA
becomes the implementing  authority in
those instances where the State or local
Agency fails to submit a plan or a plan
has not yet been approved.  This action
makes no changes to the rule and is
intended to fulfill EPA's duty under
section 129(b)(3) to promulgate a
Federal Plan as a gap-filling measure
until the State fulfills its statutory
obligations. When the State submits an
approvable State Plan, the Federal Plan
will no longer apply to units in the
State.

 Second, with respect to the low sulfur
 gasoline program, it removes the anti-
 backsliding provision of the Geographic
 Phase-in Area (GPA) program by
 establishing a flat GPA gasoline
 standard of 150  ppm sulfur. Third, it
 amends certain provisions of the
 Averaging, Banking, and Trading (ABT)
 programs to assist domestic and foreign
 refiners and importers in generating
 sulfur credits  and allotments. Fourth,
 it clarifies and amends certain
 downstream standards for parties in the
 gasoline distribution system to assist
 them with program compliance.
 Finally, this action makes minor
revisions to the regulations governing
 compliance with the vehicle standards.

the international treaty, The Montreal
Protocol on Substances that Deplete the
Ozone Layer. These amendments: (1)
will change the amount of class I
ozone-depleting substances that can be
produced in the U.S. for export to
developing countries, (2) will create
procedures for the transfer of
allowances and CFCs under the
essential-use exemption for metered-
dose inhalers, and (3) ban the trade of
methyl bromide with countries that are
not Parties (not signatories) to the
Montreal Protocol.

                   Abstract: Dumping refers to the
                   practice whereby refiners making clean
                   fuels for certain markets (such as
                   reformulated gasoline for clean-air
                   purposes) take the pollutants removed
                   from the clean fuels and dump them
                   into other fuels they are producing for
                   other markets. This, if allowed, would
                   make those other fuels even dirtier than
                   before, and so the Clean Air Act
                   prohibits this practice. EPA has existing
                   anti-dumping rules on the books that
                   codify this Clean Air Act prohibition.
                   This regulation is a minor technical
                   amendment to those existing
                   regulations. It would amend a portion
                   of those regulations to allow the use
                   of data collected after January 1,1995
                   in the development of baselines, and
                   it would establish a cut-off date of
                   January 1, 2002 for the submission of
                   all individual baselines under the anti-
                   dumping program. This date is the
                   same as that allowed for foreign
                   refineries seeking a unique individual
                   baseline under the anti-dumping
                   program.

 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: The final air-toxics rule
 (NESHAP) controlling emissions from
 solvent extraction for vegetable oil
 production was promulgated in April
 2001. This and all other NESHAPs rely
 on another existing rule, called the Part
 63 General Provisions, for definition of
 a number of housekeeping functions
 such as testing and monitoring. We are
 currently in the process of finalizing
 some amendments to the Part 63
 General Provisions, and we have
 recently discovered that we need to
 simultaneously amend the  existing
vegetable oil NESHAP to avoid a
number of minor inconsistencies with
the amended General Provisions. The
amendments in this package will
eliminate these minor inconsistencies
                    between the vegetable oil NESHAP and
                    the revisions being made to the Part
                    63 General Provisions.

                   Abstract: Several of the source
                    categories that are subject to MACT
                    (maximum available control
                   technology) standards contain only a
                   few sources (e.g., less than five). EPA
                   developed a generic MACT standard for
                   these source categories. This
                   reinvention to the MACT standards
                   development process will allow for
                   proper participation by all stakeholders.
                   Given the relatively few affected
                   sources caught by the generic  standard,
                   the overall cost and environmental
                   effects of this action are expected to
                   be small, nationally. The MACT
                   program addresses hazardous  air
                   pollutants. This action currently affects
                   major sources of these HAPs. The
                   source categories included in this
                   standard are: Acrylic/Modacrylic (RIN
                   2060-AF06), Polycarbonates (RIN 2060-

 United Nations International Civil
 Aviation Organization (ICAO), thus
 bringing the United States emission
 standards into alignment with the
 internationally  adopted standards. This
 NOx standard was adopted at the
 ICAO/Committee on Aviation
 Environmental  Protection (CAEP) 4
  meeting in 1998. The implementation
  of the standard is to begin in January
  2004. Further, this amendment will
  establish consistency between U.S. and
  international requirements and test
  procedures. This action is necessary to
  ensure that domestic commercial
•  aircraft meet international standards
  and so that the public can be assured
  that they are receiving the air quality
  benefits of the international standards.

 AIR MONITORING FINE PARTICULATE
 COLLOCATED PRECISION
 REQUIREMENT
 Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
 Legal Authority: 42  USC 7410; 42 USC
 7601(a); 42 USC 7619
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 58
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: This rule will amend the
 regulations governing the monitoring of
 ambient fine particulate pollution
 (PM2.5) conducted by State and local
 governments as part of their programs
 to meet the National Ambient Air
 Quality Standard (NAAQS) for PM2.5.
 This direct final rule reduces the
 requirement to collocate PM2.5
 samplers from 25 percent of a reporting
 organization's sites to 15 percent.
 Collocation  is a technique used to
 provide an estimate of precision or
 repeatability of the PM2.5 network. The
 process involves setting up a second
 PM2.5 sampling instrument within 1 to
  4 meters of  the primary sampler
  instrument and collecting a sample
  during the same time period as the
•  primary sampler. EPA analysis now
  shows that a reduction in the  precision
  requirement would  not significantly
  affect confidence in precision estimates.
  Since precision values are collected
  every sixth  day at the monitoring sites
  and the precision data quality
  objectives are developed over 3 years,
  EPA feels that enough precision data
  will be collected at the proposed
  frequency (15 percent) to provide
  acceptable estimates of achievement of

  2957. • REVISION TO REGULATIONS
  IMPLEMENTING THE FEDERAL
  PERMITS PROGRAM IN AREAS FOR
 WHICH THE INDIAN COUNTRY
 STATUS IS IN QUESTION

 Legal Authority:  42 USC 7401 et seq
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 71.4(b); 40 CFR

 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: The rulemaking responds to
 an order of the U.S. Court of Appeals
 for the District of Columbia, which
 vacated and remanded a portion of the
 regulations that authorize EPA to issue
 operating permits to large stationary
 sources of air pollution located in
 Indian country. The relevant portion of
 the regulation stated that EPA will treat
 areas for which EPA believes the Indian
 country status is in question as Indian
 country. To conform with the court's
 order, we are removing the regulatory
 language that treats areas in question
 as Indian country. A proposed
 rulemaking is not necessary for this
 action. The amendment may cause EPA
 not to issue permits to a few sources,
which may result in permits being

                    This action will have a minimal affect
                    on State and tribal governments. As a
                    result of this action, EPA may be
                    unable to issue permits to a handful
                    of sources which would then probably
                    be permitted by State or tribal
                    permitting agencies.

                  final rulemaking (and parallel NPRM)
                  to make several minor modifications to
                  its reformulated gasoline (RFG)
                  regulations to reflect changes in the
                  geographical areas that are covered by
                  the Federal RFG program, and to delete
                  obsolete language and clarify existing
                  language in the provisions listing the
                  Federal RFG covered areas. These
                  changes include: (1) deleting the seven
                  southern counties in Maine from the
                  RFG covered areas list, reflecting their
                  opt-out of the RFG program, as of
                  March 10, 1999,  (2) adding the
                  Sacramento Metro and San Joaquin
                  Valley nonattainment areas to the list
   of RFG covered areas, reflecting the
   Sacramento Metro Area's inclusion in
   the RFG program as of June 1, 1996
   and the San Joaquin Valley Area's
   inclusion in the RFG program on
   December 10, 2002; and (3) deleting the
   text which extended the RFG opt-in
   provisions to all ozone nonattainment
   areas including previously designated
   ozone nonattainment areas, reflecting a
   court decision in January 2000, which
  invalidated this language. This
  rulemaking also makes certain other
  minor changes in the provisions listing
  the RFG covered areas for purposes of
  clarification. A parallel NPRM will also
  be issued for use in case we receive
     itive comments on the direct final

rule.

Legal Authority: CAA 112[r)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 68.210
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Section 112(rH7) of the Clean
Air Act (CAA) and its implementing
regulations at 40 CFR part 68 require
certain stationary sources to report an
Off-site Consequence  Analysis  (OCA),
including a worst-case release scenario,
in a Risk Management Plan (RMP) that
is to be made available to the public.
In response to concerns that posting
OCA information on the Internet might
increase the risk of terrorist and other
criminal activities, on August 5, 1999
the Chemical Safety Information, Site
Security and Fuels Regulatory Relief
Act was enacted. The Act requires the
President to promulgate regulations
governing the distribution of the OCA
sections of RMPs that, in the opinion
of the President, would minimize the
likelihood of accidental releases and
the risk of terrorist and other criminal
activities associated with posting this
information. The President delegated
his rulemaking authority to the
Attorney General and the Administrator
of EPA, who jointly promulgated the
required regulations at 40 CFR part
1400. The Part 1400 regulations restrict
the public's access to  the OCA sections
of RMPs in certain ways. As currently
drafted, however, section 68.210(a) of
part 68 states that RMPs are available
to the public under CAA section 114,
which makes information collected
under the CAA, including RMPs in
their entirety, available to the public,
except for confidential business
information. EPA is therefore  revising
40 CFR section 68.210(a) to reflect the
August 2000 rulemaking and the
revision will state that OCA data is
made available to the public under the
provisions of 40 CFR  part 1400.

                                                                                                      Long-Term Actions
           be revised from time to time by EPA's
           own motion or by petition and shall
           be reviewed at least every 5 years.
           Since the January 1994 final list rule,
           EPA has modified the listing for
           hydrochloric acid; deleted a category of
           explosive chemicals; exempted
           flammable substances in gasoline used
           as fuel and in naturally occurring
           hydrocarbon mixtures prior to initial
           processing; and excluded flammable
           substances used as a fuel or held for
           sale as a fuel at a retail facility. In
           fulfillment of the  statute's five-year
           review requirement, EPA has
           conducted a thorough review of the list.
           Based on that review, EPA is proposing
           additions, deletions and modifications
           to the list of substances. Deletions are
           based on EPA's review of the chemical
           toxicity, physical property,
           production/use quantity and accident
           history of currently listed substances
           and new information or erroneous data
           that impacts the basis of the chemical's
          listing. Other toxic and flammable
          chemicals are proposed to be added
          because they meet the criteria for
          listing a toxic or flammable substance.
          In addition, EPA proposes to revise the
          reporting threshold and toxic endpoints
          of several toxic substances based on
          updated toxicity information. Facilities
          with more than the threshold quantity
          of a listed substance in a process are
          required to  develop a Risk Management
          Program and submit a Risk
          Management Plan to EPA.  The
          proposed changes to the list will  ensure
          that facilities are properly managing
          risks of the most acutely toxic and
          flammable chemicals that could have
          an adverse impact on the facility  and
          surrounding community in event of an
          accidental release.

   Abstract: As required by the Clean Air
   Act's New Source Review (NSR)
   provisions, the EPA is proposing
   Federal regulations governing
   preconstruction permitting of minor
   and major stationary sources of air
   pollution in Indian country. Pursuant
.   to the Tribal Air Rule, eligible Indian
   Tribes may receive EPA authorization
   to develop and implement such
   programs. The Federal NSR permitting
   programs would be effective throughout
   Indian country and would be
   implemented by EPA if eligible Indian
   Tribes do not elect, or do not receive
   authorization, to manage such
  programs. The proposed Federal  minor
  NSR rule would require sources in
  Indian country, with certain exceptions,
  to obtain a permit prior to construction
  if they are: (1) new minor sources, (2)
  existing  minor sources undergoing
  modification,  or (3) existing major
  sources undergoing minor modification.
  The proposed rule also would allow
  new or existing stationary sources to
  accept enforceable limits on their
  production capacity or hours of
  operation in order to be considered
  minor sources and avoid being subject
  to other Clean Air Act requirements
  such as the title V operating permit
  program. The proposed Federal major
  NSR rule would require sources in
  nonattainment areas in Indian country
  to obtain a permit prior to construction
  if they are: (1) new major sources, or
  (2) existing major sources undergoing
  major modification. These rules would
  not impose any mandates on Tribal
 governments to implement NSR
  permitting programs. Tribal   '
 governments may be affected, however,
 insofar as they own or operate sources
 that must obtain a permit from the EPA
 under the final Federal permitting
 program regulations.

2965. FEDERAL MAJOR NEW
SOURCE REVIEW (NSR) PROGRAM
FOR NONATTAINMENT AREAS
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7401 et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 124; 40 CFR
51.165; 40 CFR 52.10; 40 CFR 52.24
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The Clean Air Act (Act) (title
I, part D] requires that construction
permit programs for new or modified
major stationary sources of air pollution
be established for areas not attaining
the NAAQS. This action will add
Federal rules at 40 CFR 52.10 for
permitting the construction of new or
modified major stationary sources in
certain nonattainment areas where
State, local, or tribal rules that meet
the statutory permitting requirements
are in place, in whole or in part. These
rules will basically incorporate the
requirements for State nonattainment
NSR permit programs, codified at 40
CFR 51.165(a), with supplemental
provisions added to make explicit the
permit requirements of section 173 of
the Act and certain long-standing
policies regarding nonattainment NSR
permitting. This action will also change
40 CFR 52.24 to specify that the
requirements of 40 CFR 52.10 govern
 any permits issued in certain
 nonattainment areas where acceptable
 nonattainment NSR rules are not in
 place. Changes to 40 CFR part 124 will
 specify that the permit processing,
 public participation, and permit appeal
 requirements that otherwise apply to
 Federal PSD permitting will also apply,
 in most cases, to Federal nonattainment
 NSR permitting under 40 CFR 52.10.

2967. RULEMAKING TO MODIFY THE
LIST OF SOURCE CATEGORIES
FROM WHICH FUGITIVE EMISSIONS
ARE CONSIDERED IN MAJOR
SOURCE DETERMINATIONS
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant.

Legal Authority: 42 USC 7602 CAA sec
302(j)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 51; 40 CFR 52;

Legal Deadline: None
Abstract:  This rulemaking will modify
the list of source categories for which
fugitive emissions are to be considered
in major source determinations under
the New Source Review (Prevention of
Significant Deterioration and
Nonattainment New Source Review)
and title V programs. As provided by
section 302(j) of the Act, EPA adopted
rules on August 7, 1980 that require,
for specific source categories, the
inclusion of fugitive emissions when
determining if a stationary source is a
major source. In its 1980 rulemaking,
EPA  identified one such specific source
category as those stationary source
categories being regulated, as of August
 7, 1980, under section 111 or  112 of
the Clean Air Act. Moreover, EPA
indicated that at the time of any future
rulemaking proposing to regulate
 additional categories of sources under
 section 111 or 112, the EPA would
 conduct a parallel rulemaking under
 section 302(j) to determine whether
 fugitive emissions from sources within
 these source categories needed to be
 considered in determining whether the
 sources were major stationary sources.
 EPA did not conduct these  parallel
 rulemakings as intended and is now
 conducting a rulemaking pursuant to
 section 302(j) to address the source
 categories which became subject to
 section 111 and 112 standards after
 August 7, 1980.

                     to develop emission standards for each
                     major source category of hazardous air
                     pollutants (HAPs). The standards are to

                     the maximum degree of emission
                     reduction determined to be achievable
                     by the Administrator of the EPA. The

  Abstract: Section 176(c) of the'Clean
  Air Act prohibits Federal entities from
  taking actions which do not conform
  to the State implementation plan (SIP)
  for the attainment and maintenance of
  the national ambient air quality
  standards (NAAQS). In November 1993,
  EPA promulgated two sets of
  regulations to implement section
  176(c). First, on November 24, EPA
  promulgated the Transportation
  Conformity Regulations to establish the
  criteria and procedures for determining
  that transportation plans, programs, and
  projects  which are funded under title
  23 U.S.C. or the Federal Transit Act
  conform with the SIP. Then, on
 November 30, EPA promulgated
 regulations, known as the General
 Conformity Regulations, to ensure that
 other Federal actions also conformed to
 the SIPs. Since 1993, EPA has amended
 the transportation conformity rule three
 times in  response to stakeholders'
 requests. The EPA is working on a
 separate  revision to address
 transportation conformity in
 transitional areas which will be final
 by December 1998. The EPA has not
 reviewed or revised the General
 Conformity Regulations since their
 1993 promulgation. Several Federal
 agencies have identified concerns over
 the implementation of the General
 Conformity Regulations, including the
 requirements  for  areas designated
 nonattainment for the newly
 promulgated NAAQS. In conjunction
 with an ad hoc work group of
 representatives from several Federal
 agencies,  EPA will review the
 implementation of the General
 Conformity Regulations. The EPA will
then propose and promulgate any

51.150 to 51.153
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: 40 CFR part 51.150-51.153
require States to have contingency
plans to prevent air pollution levels
from reaching the significant harm level
(SHL) for CO, O3, SO2, NOx, and PM.
Appendix L provides example  guidance
to die States on appropriate courses of
action to take at each episode stage
(i.e., alert, warning, and emergency) to
ensure the SHL is not reached. These
requirements were developed in the
1970's, based on the NAAQS from that
era. Since that time, ambient air quality
levels have decreased nationwide.
Today, many areas/sources that no
longer need episode plans must still
develop them. This rule would update
and simplify the criteria used to
determine which areas would require
episode plans. Areas with no more than
one exceedance of the Alert level over
the past 5 years would not need to
develop emergency episode plans.
Sources with the potential to cause
exceedances of the SHL due to a
process/control equipment malfunction
would need to develop source
contingency plans to prevent (and to
respond to) such malfunctions.
Appendix L would also be revised to
reflect the revised program
requirements. The result will be a
sensible, credible program replacing an
outdated program.

Abstract: The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) Radiological
Emergency Response Plan (RERP)
establishes  a framework for timely,
coordinated EPA action to protect
public health and safety and the
environment in response to a peacetime
radiological incident. The original EPA
RERP was approved in 1986. This new
revision updates  authorities,
responsibilities, capabilities, and
procedures for implementing effective
radiological emergency response
actions by EPA Offices. The RERP
presents the EPA organizational
structure and concept of operations for
responding to radiological incidents as
a participant in a Federal multi-agency
response using the Federal Radiological
Emergency Response Plan (FRERP), the
Federal Response Plan (FRP), and the
National Oil and Hazardous Substances
Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP). This
revision incorporates recent changes to
the FRERP and NCP, and many other
policy updates. In short, this revision
ensures that EPA maintains a
comprehensive strategy to provide
organized, effective assistance to  State
and local governments in the event of
a radiological emergency.

Abstract: On November 15,1994, the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
proposed not to revise the existing 24-
hour and annual primary standards.
The EPA sought public comment on the
need to adopt additional regulatory
measures to address the health risk to
asthmatic individuals posed by short-
term peak sulfur dioxide exposure.  On
March 7, 1995, EPA proposed
implementation strategies for reducing

sulfur dioxide NAAQS. The notice
stated that EPA would shortly propose
a new implementation strategy to assist
States in addressing short-term peaks of
sulfur dioxide. The new
implementation strategy - the
Intervention Level Program - was
proposed on January 2,1997. In July
1996, the American Lung Association
and the Environmental Defense Fund
petitioned the U.S. Court  of Appeals for
the D.C. Circuit for a judicial review
of EPA's decision not to establish a
new 5-minute NAAQS. On January 30,
1998, the court found that EPA did not
adequately explain its decision and
remanded the case so EPA could
explain its rationale more fully. EPA
published a schedule for responding to
the remand in the May 5,1998 Federal
Register. Since that notice, EPA has
continued to work on the proposed
response to the remand by reviewing
additional SO2 air quality information.
EPA published an informational notice
in the Federal Register on January 9,
2001 (66 FR 1665).

 Priority: Other Significant
 Legal Authority: 42 USC 7412 CAAA
 sec 112
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 63
 Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,
 November 15, 2000.
 Abstract: The Clean Air Act, as
 amended November 1990, requires the
 EPA to regulate categories of major and
 area sources of hazardous air pollutants
 (HAP). The EPA has determined that
 integrated iron and steel mills emit
 several of the 188 HAP listed
 (including compounds of chromium,
 lead, manganese, toluene, and
 polycyclic organic matter) in quantities
 sufficient to designate them as major
 sources. As a consequence, integrated
 iron and steel facilities are among the
 HAP-emitting source categories selected
 for regulation.

Abstract: Final standards under section
112(d) for chromium emissions from
hard and decorative chromium
electroplating and chromium anodizing
tanks (40 CFR 63, Subpart N) were
promulgated on January 25, 1995. Since
promulgation, the Agency has
determined that a class of chromium
electroplating operations were
inadvertently excluded from regulation.
Specifically, the final standards do not
apply to sources engaged in continuous
chromium electroplating of steel sheet
used to make cans and other
containers. It is the Agency's intent to
regulate all facilities engaged in
chromium electroplating. Therefore, the
Agency plans to amend the chromium
electroplating rule to extend its
applicability to continuous chromium
electroplating operations.

 Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Section 612 of the Clean Air
Act requires EPA to identify
alternatives to Class I and II ozone-
depleting substances and to publish
lists of acceptable and unacceptable
substitutes. Producers of substitutes
                                      must notify EPA at least 90 days before
                                      alternatives are introduced into
                                      interstate commerce. Unlike acceptable
                                      alternatives (see Notices), substitutes
                                      which are deemed by EPA to be
                                      unacceptable or acceptable subject to
                                      use restrictions must go through notice
                                      and comment rulemaking. Substitute
                                      lists are updated intermittently
                                      depending  on the volume of
                                      notifications.

2985. REVIEW OF THE NATIONAL
AMBIENT AIR QUALITY STANDARDS
FOR PARTICULATE MATTER
Priority: Economically Significant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7408; 42 USC

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 50
Legal  Deadline: Final, Statutory, July
1, 2002, Under the Clean Air Act - the
next standards review is to be
completed July 2002.
Abstract: On July 18,1997, the EPA
published a final rule  revising the
national ambient air quality standards
(NAAQS) for particulate matter (PM)
(62 FR 38652). While retaining the
PM10 standard levels, new standards
were added for fine particles (PM2.5)
to provide increased protection against
both health and environmental effects
of PM. On the same day, a Presidential
Memorandum (62 FR 38421, July 16,
1997) was published that, among other
things, directed EPA to complete the
next review of the PM NAAQS by July
2002. The EPA's plans and schedule for
the next periodic review of the PM
NAAQS were published on October 23,
1997 (62 FR 55201). Due to the
unprecedented volume of new research,
the completion of the  Criteria
Document has been extended and as a
result the overall schedule for the
review of the PM NAAQS  is anticipated
to extend beyond the original target of
July 2002. As with other NAAQS
reviews, a rigorous assessment of
relevant scientific information will be
presented in a Criteria Document (CD),
and the preparation of this document
is currently under way by the EPA's
National Center for Environmental
Assessment. The EPA's Office of Air
"Quality Planning and Standards will
also prepare a Staff Paper (SP) for the
Administrator which will evaluate the
policy implications of the key studies
and scientific information contained in
the CD and additional technical
analyses, and identify critical elements
that EPA staff believes should be
considered in reviewing the standards.
The SP and CD will  be reviewed by
the Clean Air Scientific Advisory
Committee (CASAC) and the public;
both will reflect the  input received
through these reviews. As the PM
NAAQS review is completed, the
Administrator's proposal to revise or
reaffirm the PM NAAQS will be
published with a request for public
comment. Input received during the
public comment period will be
reflected in the Administrator's final
decision.

 Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
 Legal Authority: 42 USC 7426
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 52; 40 CFR 97
 Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,
 December 14, 1999, The rulemaking
 includes action on 4 separate petitions.
 See Additional Information.
 Abstract: In April through July 1999,
 3 Northeastern States (New Jersey,
 Maryland, and Delaware) and the
 District of Columbia submitted
 individual petitions to EPA in
 accordance with section 126 of the
 Clean Air Act (CAA). Each petition
 specifically requests that EPA make a
 finding that nitrogen oxides (NOx)
 emissions from certain stationary
 sources in other States significantly
 contribute to ozone nonattainment and
 maintenance problems with respect to
 the 1-hour and 8-hour ozone standards
 in the petitioning  State. If EPA makes
 such a finding of significant
 contribution, EPA is authorized to
 establish Federal emissions limits for
 the sources. The petitions rely on the
 analyses from EPA's NOx SIP call. The
 sources targeted by the petitions are
 large electricity generating units and
 large non-electricity generating units, as
 defined in EPA's NOx SIP call. The
 CAA requires EPA to take final action
 on the petitions within 60 days of
receipt, but may extend the deadline
for up to 6 additional months to allow
for public process. The EPA took
rulemaking action on similar petitions
from 8 other Northeastern States that
were submitted in 1997.

 2988. RESCINDING FINDING THAT
 PRE-EXISTING PM10 STANDARDS
 ARE NO LONGER APPLICABLE IN
 NORTHERN ADA COUNTY/BOISE,
 IDAHO
 Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
 Legal Authority: 42 USC 7401 et seq
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 50.6(d); 40 CFR
 52.676; 40 CFR 81.313
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: The EPA had previously
 taken action to revoke the PM-10
 national ambient air quality standards
 (NAAQS) for the Boise/Ada County
 area in anticipation that a revised PM-
 10 NAAQS would  soon be in place.
 However, the DC Circuit court
 subsequently vacated the revised PM-
 10 NAAQS, the effectiveness of which
 served as the underlying basis for
 EPA's decision to revoke the pre-
 existing PM-10 NAAQS. Therefore, in
 order to protect public health in the
 Boise/Ada County area, EPA'is
 proposing to reinstate the pre-existing
 PM-10 NAAQS. Without this action
 there would be no Federal PM-10
 NAAQS applicable to this area. This
 action is tentatively subject to the terms
 of a settlement agreement that was
 signed by all parties in January 2001.
 A Federal Register notice of the
 proposed settlement requesting public
 comment was published January 30,
 2001 in accordance with section  113(g)
 of the Act.  Written  comments on the
 proposed settlement agreement were
 due to EPA (Mike Prosper) by March
 1, 2001. Unless EPA or DOJ determine,

2989. UTILITY SECTOR NEW SOURCE
REVIEW (NSR) ALTERNATIVE
COMPLIANCE PROGRAM
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7401 to 7671q
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 51; 40 CFR 52.21
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The New Source Review
(NSR) Program is the principal means
by which EPA assures that new
pollution sources install reasonably
effective air pollution controls before
they are allowed to begin operation.
EPA is currently involved in a
comprehensive rulemaking (NSR
Improvement, SAN 3259), intended to
streamline the  NSR program and reduce
its administrative burden. This new
rulemaking is an outgrowth of that
reform effort, and will provide
industries with the flexibility to focus
more on existing pollution sources,
with the goal of achieving as good or
better environmental results than could
be achieved focusing strictly on new
sources. The Utility Sector NSR
Alternative Compliance Program is a
proposed rulemaking that is an
outgrowth of this action and will
provide industries with the flexibility
to focus more on existing pollution
sources, with the goal of achieving as
good or better environmental results
than could be achieved focusing strictly
on new sources.

                    Abstract: The Clean Air Act (CAA)
                    requires development of emission
                    standards for major sources emitting
                    any of the hazardous air pollutants
                    (HAP) listed in section 112(b) of the
                    CAA. The EPA is proposing a rule to
                    reduce emissions of toxic air pollutants
                    from flexible polyurethane foam
                    fabrication operations. Toxic air
                    pollutants, or air toxics, are those
                    pollutants known, or suspected, to
                    cause  cancer and other serious health
                    problems. EPA identified two
                    subcategories under the flexible
                    polyurethane foam fabrication
                    operations source category. These
                    subcategories are loop  slitter HAP-
                    based adhesive use and flame
                    lamination. Loop slitters are equipment
                    at foam fabrication operations that are
                    used to slice large foam blocks into thin
                    sheets. Flame lamination refers to the
                    bonding of foam to other substrates
                    (i.e., cloth, foam, plastic, and other
                    materials), where the bonding agent is
                    scorched or melted foam.

                                     Abstract: All gasoline must contain
                                     additives to control the formation of
                                     deposits in the fuel supply system and
                                     engine of motor vehicles. If
                                     uncontrolled, such deposits can result
                                     in a significant increase in motor
                                     vehicle emissions. This action will
                                     propose that updated test procedures be
                                     adopted for the certification of gasoline
                                     deposit control additives regarding
                                     their ability to control fuel injector and
                                     intake valve deposits. The adoption of
                                     the updated procedures will ensure that
                                     the gasoline deposit control program
                                     continues to ensure an adequate level
                                     of deposit control, thereby preventing
                                     an increase in motor vehicle emissions.:
                                     The updated test procedures require
                                     less time to perform and are less costly.
                                     Therefore, the adoption of the proposed
                                     procedures will reduce the burden on
                                     industry of complying with the gasoline
                                     deposit control program. The proposed
                                     action will not impact small businesses,
                                     or state, local, or tribal governments.

 Abstract: With this action, EPA will
 revise the accelerated phaseout
 regulations that govern the production,
 import, export, transformation and
 destruction of substances that deplete
 the ozone layer. The amendments will
 incorporate exemptions permitted
 under the Montreal Protocol on
 Substances that Deplete the Ozone
 Layer and recent1 changes to the Clean
 Air Act.  Specifically, the amendments
 will create a process to exempt
 production and consumption of
 quantities of methyl bromide for critical

 phaseout of methyl bromide. Because
 this is an exemption, the rule will
 confer a benefit on affected entities.

                    Abstract: In December 2000, the EPA
                    determined that regulation of hazardous
                    air pollutant emissions (HAP) from oil-
                    and  coal-fired electric utility steam
                    generating units was necessary and
                    appropriate. This finding was based on
                    the results of the study mandated by
                    section 112(nXl)(A) of the Clean Air
                    Act,  as amended. The regulation(s) will
                    be developed under section 112 and
                    will  result in standards based on the
                    use of maximum achievable control
                    technology (MACT). The primary
                    benefit will be the reduction of mercury
                    emissions to the atmosphere from coal-
                    fired units but other HAP will also be
                    reduced.  Small businesses and
                    State/local/tribal governments could be
                    impacted (particularly those
                    governments owning or operating oil-
                    or coal-fired electric generation

 Club and the National Lime Association
 petitioned the court to review subpart
 LLL, while the American Portland
 Cement Alliance (APCA) opted, to
 negotiate a settlement agreement. (Note
 that there is currently a separate rule
 under development to amend subpart
 LLL to implement the settlement
 agreement with the APCA — SAN
 4524, RIN 2060-AJ57.) On December 15,
 2000, a panel of the D.C. Circuit issued
 its opinion in National Lime Assn v.
 EPA. The Court remanded the three
 standards for which'we established
 floors of no control (hydrogen chloride
 [HC1], total hydrocarbon [THC], and
 mercury [Hg]). The Court found that we
 committed error in not considering
 other means of control, in particular,
 control of HAPs in raw materials and
 in fossil fuels, The Court also remanded
 that we consider setting beyond-the-
 floor standards for HAP metals, for
 which particulate matter (PM) is a
 surrogate. This  action will consist of
 amendments  to respond to the court
remand.

Abstract: A national emission standard
for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP)
for industrial process cooling towers
(IPCT) was previously promulgated
under Section 112(d) of the Clean Air
Act. That standard effectively bans the
use of chromium-based water treatment
chemicals in IPCT used to remove heat
from chemical or industrial processes.
The Clean Air Act Section 112(f)
requires us to assess within 8 years of
promulgation of a NESHAP the
remaining risk to the public and to
develop additional more stringent
standards if such standards are needed
to protect the public health with an
ample margin of safety. This action is
to examine the remaining risk from
IPCT and, if warranted, to develop new
risk based standards.

 3006. • NESHAP: SECONDARY LEAD
 SMELTING RESIDUAL RISK
 STANDARDS
 Priority: Other Significant
 Legal Authority: 42 USC 7412
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 63
 Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory, June
 23, 2003, Final Action.
 Abstract: National emission standards
 for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP]
 for secondary lead smelting were
 promulgated on June 23, 1995 under
 Clean Air Act section 112(d). The
 standards establish emission limitations
 and work practice standards for all new
 and existing secondary lead smelters
 that produce refined lead from lead
 scrap, mainly lead acid batteries. Clean
 Air Act section 112(f) requires us to
 assess within 8 years of promulgation
 of a NESHAP the remaining risk to the
 public and  to develop additional, more
 stringent standards if such standards
 are needed  to protect the public health
 with an ample margin of safety. This
 action is to examine the remaining risk
 from secondary lead smelters and to
 develop new risk based standards, if
 warranted.

                    Legal Deadline: None
                    Abstract: Under the Project XL
                    program, the EPA is supporting a
                    project for the Georgia-Pacific
                    Corporation facility located in Big
                    Island, Virginia. The EPA is
                    promulgating this rule, applicable only
                    to the Georgia-Pacific Big Island
                    facility, to help implement the project.
                    Under the XL project, Georgia-Pacific
                    will install and operate the first
                    commercial scale black liquor
                    gasification system in the United States.
                    This system will provide superior air
                    emissions reductions and energy
                    benefits compared to use of
                    conventional recovery technology for
                    black liquor in the pulp and paper
                    industry. However, since this will be
                    the first commercial scale
                    demonstration of this technology, there
  is some risk that the technology will
  take longer than planned to work
  properly or may not ever work
  properly. If either of these scenarios
  happens, Georgia-Pacific requires relief
  from otherwise applicable air emission
  standards to allow time for the new
  technology to achieve expected
  performance or, in the event of failure,
  to allow time for Georgia-Pacific to
  build conventional recovery technology
  that will meet applicable standards.
  Without this relief, Georgia-Pacific
  would not undertake commercialization
  of this promising technology. Therefore,
  this rule provides relief (in the form
  of limited duration compliance
  extensions)from otherwise applicable
 hazardous air pollutant emission
 standards, as needed during the
 conduct of the XL project.

 3026. • NESHAP: REVISION OF
 SOURCE  CATEGORY LIST UNDER
 SECTION 112 OF THE CAA
 Priority: Info./Admin./Other
 Legal Authority: Clean Air Act sec 112
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 63
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract:  Section 112 of the Clean Air
 Act requires the EPA to publish a list
 of major and area source categories
 which emit one or more of the
 hazardous air pollutants listed in
 section 112. An initial list of source
 categories  was finalized in July 1992
 and contained 174 categories. Section
 112 further requires the Agency to
prioritize the listed categories such that
standards are promulgated for 40
source categories  within 2 years of
enactment, 25 percent of all initially
                                       listed categories within 4 years, 50
                                       percent within 7 years, and 100 percent
                                       within 10 years. The schedule for the
                                       promulgation of emissions standards
                                       was published in December 1993. This
                                       action revises the list of source
                                       categories and the corresponding
                                       schedule for emission standards. This
                                       is in accordance with the statute, which
                                       requires the Agency to periodically
                                       amend the list in response to public
                                       comment or new information, and no
                                       less often than every eight years. The
                                       list and schedule were last updated on
                                       February 12, 2002.

Abstract: This action will result in
Federal protective action guidance
(PAG) for State and local officials to
use in the event of a nuclear accident
to protect the general public from the
adverse health effects associated with
the ingestion of drinking water that is
contaminated with radioactive material.
The PAG will be incorporated into the
Revision of the PAG Manual.  The draft
guidance will be submitted to the PAG
Subcommittee of the Federal
Radiological Preparedness Coordinating
Committee (FRPCC) for review and
comment. Members of the PAG
subcommittee include representatives
from DOE, DOD, FEMA, NRG, HHS,
USDA, DOT, and the Conference of
Radiation Control Program Directors
(CRCPD). When a consensus among the
representatives is reached, the guidance
is recommended to the full FRPCC for
endorsement. After that endorsement is
obtained a notice of the availability of
a revised EPA 400-R-92-001, Manual of
Protective Action Guides and Protective
Actions for Nuclear Incidents will be
published in the Federal Register. This
action is temporarily delayed until the
                  FDA's revised PAGs for Food can be
                  evaluated,

RADIOACTIVE WASTE
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 2021 Atomic
Energy Act of 1954; Reorganization
Plan No. 3 of 1970; Nuclear Waste
Policy Act of 1982
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 193
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This voluntary action will
allow low-activity mixed radioactive
wastes  to be disposed in facilities that
meet the design requirements for
RCRA-C disposal cells. The wastes
intended to be disposed of in these
cells are mixed wastes, consisting of a
chemically hazardous component and
low levels of radioactivity. These
wastes  are anticipated to arise in the
commercial sector from various
sources. The rule is intended to
increase disposal options for these
wastes  and offer a streamlined
regulatory process which melds
hazardous chemical protection and
radioactivity protection requirements
while protecting public health and
safety. The rule does not mandate a
disposal method, but rather permits an
alternative to existing disposal
methods. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory
Commission is anticipated to be the
implementing Agency for the
application of this rule.

3029. REVISION OF THE 40  CFR PART
194 WASTE ISOLATION PILOT PLANT
COMPLIANCE CRITERIA
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 106 Stat.  4777 as
amended by the 1996 LWA
Amendments; PL 102-579; PL 104-201;
Waste Isolation Pilot Plant Land
Withdrawal Act of 1992
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 194.8(b)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This rule would change some
of the language in Section  194.8(b) of
the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP)
Compliance Criteria without deleting
any of the requirements for the
Department of Energy's (DOE)
compliance. Section 194.8(b) explains
the process by which EPA inspects and
approves waste characterization
processes at DOE transuranic waste
sites that send waste to the WIPP. The
194.8(b) process involves a public
comment period. Most of the language
in section 194.8(b) will be left intact.
The most significant change would
eliminate a statement that EPA will
follow the 194.8(b) notice-and-comment
process each time a previously
approved site seeks to send a different
waste stream to the WIPP. Other
changes would correct certain
terminology and clarify the important
elements of our inspections. This rule
would eliminate the ambiguity of the
current language and replace it with:
(1) a site can ship waste once EPA has
approved it using a notice-and-
comment process; (2) EPA will perform
follow-up inspections under a separate
authority that does not call for public
comment; and (3) EPA can disallow
shipment if an initial or follow-up
inspection reveals significant
compliance issues. The main purpose
of this revision is to eliminate EPA's
obligation to approve DOE sites on a
waste stream by waste stream basis.
Our understanding of DOE's operations
has improved considerably since
194.8(b) went final in May 1998. We
now recognize that approving sites by
waste stream, using a comment period,

 is unnecessarily time-consuming for
 EPA staff, confusing for DOE, and
 generates almost no public comment. In
 addition, repetitive inspections at sites
 are expensive and provide little
 additional regulatory confidence. This
 rule will save money and will greatly
 improve the effectiveness of our
 interactions with DOE.

                                       addition of plant-incorporated
                                       protectants that act by primarily
                                       affecting the plant to its plant-
                                       incorporated protectants exemptions at
                                       40 CFR 174. Substances which plants
                                       produce for protection against pests,
                                       and the genetic material necessary to
                                       produce them, are pesticides under the
                                       Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and
                                       Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), if humans
                                       intend these substances to prevent,
                                       repel or mitigate any pest. These
                                       substances are also chemical pesticide
                                       residues under the Federal Food, Drug,
                                       and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA). EPA has
                                       determined that it will no longer issue
                                       split registrations for biotechnology
                                       products. Therefore, EPA is
                                       concurrently considering the exemption
                                       of plant-incorporated protectants
                                       derived through genetic engineering
                                       from sexually compatible plants from
                                       the requirement of a tolerance under
                                       section 408 of the FFDCA. Due to
                                       public interest and new scientific
                                       information, additional public comment
                                       on this proposal, originally published
                                       in 1994, was requested in a recent

Abstract: In 1996, the Food Quality
Protection Act amended the Federal
Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to
require EPA to charge tolerance fees
that, in the aggregate, will cover all
costs associated with processing
tolerance actions, including filing a
tolerance petition, and establishing,
modifying, leaving in effect, or revoking
a tolerance or tolerance exemption.
Since 1983 (the last time a cost analysis
was conducted), factors such as
expanded data requirements, changes
in risk assessment methods,
improvements in data base management
and tracking systems, and the
increasing complexity of scientific
review of petitions have resulted in
costs substantially exceeding the fees
currently charged. This rule will adjust
the fee structure and fee amounts for
tolerance actions. A congressional
provision currently bars the Agency
from finalizing this rulemaking.

Abstract: EPA will reassess pesticide
tolerances and exemptions for raw and

August 3, 1996, to determine whether
they meet the reasonable certainty of
no-harm standard of the Federal Food,
Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA).
FFDCA sec. 408(q), as amended by the
Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA).
FQPA requires that EPA conduct this
reassessment on a phased 10-year
schedule. Based on its reassessment,
EPA will take a series of regulatory
actions to modify or revoke tolerances.
Since such actions are issued on a
chemical-by-chemical basis, this
regulatory plan entry  does not list the
individual actions that are likely to
occur under this program. For status

Abstract: Substances that plants
produce to protect themselves against

humans intend to use them to destroy,
prevent, repel or mitigate any pest. The
Agency designates these substances,
along with the genetic material
necessary to produce them, plant-
pesticides. This rulemaking will change
the name of these pesticides to plant-
incorporated protectants and will
clarify the relationship between plants
and plant-incorporated protectants and
exempt conventional breeding and
establishes a new part in title 40 of the
CFR, part 174, which consolidates
regulations specific for plant-pesticides
in one part of the CFR. The proposed
consolidation is expected to benefit the
public by providing greater focus,
enhanced clarity and ease of use. These
actions may reduce burden on both the
regulated community and EPA.

FOR THOSE BASED ON VIRAL COAT
PROTEINS
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 21 USC 346(a) et seq;

Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: EPA is considering the
addition of plant-incorporated
protectants based on viral coat proteins
to its plant-incorporated protectants
exemptions at 40 CFR 174. Substances ,
which plants produce for protection
against pests, and the genetic material
necessary to produce them, are
pesticides under the Federal
Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide
Act (FIFRA), if humans intend these
substances to prevent, repel or mitigate
any pest. These substances are also
chemical pesticide  residues under the
Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act
(FFDCA). EPA has  determined that it
will no longer issue split registrations
for biotechnology products. Therefore,
EPA is concurrently considering the
exemption of plant-incorporated
protectants derived through genetic
engineering from sexually compatible
plants  from the  requirement of a
tolerance under section 408 of the
FFDCA. Due to  public interest and new
scientific information, additional public
comment on this proposal, originally
published  in 1994,  was requested in a
recent  Supplemental Proposal (66 FR

 3048. PLANT-INCORPORATED
 PROTECTANTS (PIPS); EXEMPTION
 FOR THOSE DERIVED THROUGH
 GENETIC ENGINEERING FROM
 SEXUALLY COMPATIBLE PLANTS

 Priority: Other Significant

 Legal Authority: 7 USC 136 et seq; 21
 USC 346a et seq

 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 174

 Legal Deadline: None

 Abstract: EPA is considering the
 addition of plant-incorporated
 protectants derived through genetic
 engineering from sexually compatible
 plants to its plant-incorporated
 protectants exemptions at 40 CFR 174.
 Substances which plants produce for
 protection against pests, and the genetic
 material necessary to produce them, are
 pesticides under the Federal
 Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide
 Act (FIFRA), if humans intend these
 substances to prevent, repel or mitigate
 any pest. These substances are also
 chemical pesticide residues under the
 Federal  Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act
 (FFDCA). EPA has determined that it  .
will no longer issue split registrations
for biotechnology  products. Therefore,
EPA is concurrently considering the
exemption of plant-incorporated
protectants derived through genetic
engineering from sexually compatible
plants from the  requirement of a
tolerance under section 408 of the
FFDCA. Due to public interest and new
scientific information, additional public
comment on this proposal, originally
published in 1994, was requested in a
recent Supplemental Proposal (66 FR
37855).

3049. ACCEPTABILITY OF RESEARCH
USING HUMAN SUBJECTS
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 7 USC 136a; 21 USC
346a
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 26 (Revision)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: EPA is evaluating how its
current policy with respect to the
protection of human research subjects
should be applied to testing not
conducted or supported by the Agency.
Current EPA regulations apply to
research conducted or supported by the
Agency or otherwise subject to
regulation. No action has been taken to
give effect to the otherwise-subject-to-
regulation phrase. In addition, EPA has
asked the advice of the National
Academy of Sciences on several issues
surrounding th'e acceptability and
interpretation of third-party studies
involving deliberate dosing of human
subjects for the purpose of defining or
quantifying toxic endpoints. EPA will
seek public comment on issues related
to Agency use of human research data
in its regulatory decisionmakirig. EPA
believes the process being initiated will
                                    serve two important Agency goals:
                                    ensuring the availability of sound and
                                    appropriate scientific data in its
                                    decisions, and protection of the
                                    interests, rights and safety of human
                                    research subjects. EPA may issue one
                                    or more documents, which may include
                                    policy statements, rulemaking or
                                    requests for public comment.

 Abstract: EPA is proposing a test rule
 under section 4(a) of the Toxic
 Substances Control Act (TSCA)
 requiring manufacturers and processors
 of eight chemicals to fulfill data needs
 identified by the Agency for Toxic
 Substances and Disease Registry
 (ATSDR), the National Toxicology
 Program (NTP), and EPA pursuant to
 the Comprehensive Environmental
 Response, Compensation, and Liability
 Act (CERCLA) section 104(i). Under
 CERCLA, ATSDR is to establish a list
 of priority hazardous substances found
 at superfund sites, develop
 lexicological profiles for the hazardous
 substances, identify priority data needs,
 and establish a research program
 obtaining the necessary data. This
 action is a component of ATSDR's
 research program. Data from this action
 would provide specific information
 about the substances for the public and
 scientific community. The information
 would be used in conducting
 comprehensive public health
 assessments of populations living near
 hazardous waste sites. Scientific data
 improves the quality of risk
 assessments used by EPA, other Federal
 agencies, and State and local
 governments. The risk assessments
 affect standards, guidelines,
 listing/delisting, and other decisions
 affecting public health and the
 environment. In addition, this action
would require manufacturers and
processors to develop data for these
chemicals that will be used by EPA
under the Clean Air Act (CAA) to
evaluate residual risks from hazardous
                    air pollutants (HAPs) on the list of
                    HAPs in the CAA under section 112(f),
                    42 USC 7412(f) and sections 112(d and
                    e). Data from this action would also be
                    used to support implementation of
                    several provisions of section 112 of the
                    CAA including, determining risks
                    remaining after the application of
                    technology-based standards under
                    section 112(d) of the CAA, estimating
                    the risks associated with accidental
                    releases, and determining whether or
                    not substances should be removed
                    (delisted) from section (b)(l) of the
                    CAA list of HAPs.

3053. TEST RULE; DEVELOPMENTAL
AND REPRODUCTIVE TOXICITY
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 15 USC 2603; 15 USC
2607(a); 15 USC 2611; 15 USC 2625

Abstract: EPA is proposing a test rule
under section 4 of the Toxic Substances
Control Act (TSCA) that would require
manufacturers, defined by statute to
include importers,  and processors of
seven substances to conduct testing for
developmental and/or reproductive
toxicity. EPA is also proposing
reporting rules for two of the seven
substances. These rules would require
the reporting of production volumes so
it will be possible to determine when
the testing program can be triggered for
the two substances without causing a
significant impact on reviewers. This is
a reproposal of a test rule announced
March 4, 1991 (56 FR 9092).

                    PCB which does not pose an
                    unreasonable risk of injury to health or
                    the environment. In addition, the
                    Interim Procedural Rules were
                    amended to require certain petitioners
                    to reapply for EPA approval to continue

 a final rule involving the disposal-
 related provisions. Other provisions,
 e.g., certain use authorizations and
 import provisions, were to be addressed
 in separate actions. This rulemaking
 addresses a use authorization for
 certain non-liquid PCB applications,
 which although currently in use have
 never been authorized under the PCB
 regulations at 40 CFR part 761.

3058. TSCA POLICY STATEMENT ON
OVERSIGHT OF TRANSGENIC
ORGANISMS (INCLUDING PLANTS)

Priority: Other Significant

Legal Authority: 15 USC 2604

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 720
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: As a follow-up to the final
Biotechnology Rule under the Toxic
Substances Control Act (TSCA) EPA
intends to address TSCA oversight of
transgenic plants and other organisms.
Recent  information indicates that
transgenic plants and other organisms
 are being developed for uses which
 appear  to be subject to TSCA
 jurisdiction, For example,  plants are
 being genetically modified to produce
 industrial grade, rather than food grade,
 oils. Many of these plants  are subject
 to oversight by the Animal and Plant
 Health  Inspection Service  (APHIS) of
the U.S. Department of Agriculture
while being tested in the environment.
Following APHIS approval of a petition
for non-regulated status filed pursuant
to APHIS' regulations implementing the
Federal Plant Pest Act at 7 CFR part
340, however, these plants cease to be
subject to regulation by USDA.
Additionally, transgenic animals that
are not under the jurisdiction of FDA
appear to be subject to TSCA. Such
animals may be genetically improved
livestock for commercial purposes. The
policy statement would address
whether EPA should exercise
jurisdiction under TSCA over such
transgenic organisms prior to their
commercial use.

 EXEMPTIONS FOR POLYMERS
 Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
 Legal Authority: 15 USC 2604
                   CFR Citation: 40 CFR 723

                   Legal Deadline: None

                   Abstract: This regulatory action will
                   eliminate exemptions under the
                   Polymer Exemption Rule for certain
                   chemicals containing or related to
                   perfluorooctyl sulfonate (PFOS) and
                   perfluorooctonoic acid (PFOA). Based
                   on data on PFOS and PFOA, EPA
                   believes that these substances and other
                   structurally related substances may
                   persist in the environment,
                   bioaccumulate, and be toxic. Certain
                   polymers which contain PFOS, PFOA,
                   or structurally similar substances, or
                   which could release such substances as
                   a degradation-on-incineration product
                   would no longer qualify for exemption
                   from TSCA section 5 reporting.

  Legal Deadline: None
  Abstract: This action would amend the
  current Toxic Substances Control Act
  (TSCA) Inventory Update Rule (IUR) to
  require  chemical manufacturers to
  report to EPA data on exposure-related
  information and the industrial and
  consumer end uses of chemicals they
  produce or import. Currently, EPA
  requires chemical manufacturers to
  report the names of the chemicals they
  produce, as well as the locations of
  manufacturing facilities and the
  quantities produced. About 3,000
  facilities reported data on about 9,000
  unique chemicals during the last
  reporting cycle under the IUR. Data
  obtained would be used by EPA and
  others to: better understand the
 potential for chemical exposures;
 screen the chemicals now in commerce
 and identify those of highest concern;
 establish priorities and goals for their
 chemical assessment, risk management
 and prevention programs, and monitor
 the programs' progress; encourage
 pollution prevention by identifying
 potentially safer substitute chemicals
 for uses  of potential concern; and
 enhance the effectiveness of chemical
 risk communication efforts.
 Additionally, EPA is making other
 amendments to the IUR. These include
 removing the inorganic chemicals
 exemption, thereby providing the
 information to better assess and manage
 risks of inorganic chemicals; improving
 the linkages of IUR data to other data
 sources to enhance the data's
 usefulness; and altering the confidential
 business information (CBI) claim
 procedures to reduce the frequency of
 CBI claims, allowing the public greater
 access to relevant information on toxic
 chemicals. EPA has held meetings with
 representatives of the chemical
 industry, environmental groups,
 environmental justice leaders, labor
 groups, State governments and other
 Federal agencies to ensure public
 involvement in the TSCA Inventory
 Update Rule Amendments Project.

Abstract: EPA is proposing health
effects testing under TSCA section 4 in
support of programs and activities
required under section 112 of the Clean
Air Act (CAA), governing Hazardous
Air Pollutants  (HAPs). Section 112 of
the CAA directs EPA to determine the
risk to health and the environment
remaining after application of
technology-based emissions standards
to major and area sources. Section 112
also sets forth a mechanism for revising
and modifying the statutory list of 189
HAPs under section 112(b), and
requirements for an accidental release
control program. These data will also
be important for the right-to-know
program given the large release of these
chemicals to the atmosphere. In order
to implement these and other programs
and requirements under section 112,
EPA must identify the health and
environment effects of potential
concern from exposure to HAPs,
ascertain the minimum data needed to
adequately characterize those health
and environmental effects, and assess
the risks posed by HAPs. In addition,
under section  103(d), EPA is required
to conduct a research program on the
short- and long-term effects of air
pollutants on human health, ascertain
the minimum  data  needed to
adequately characterize those health
and environmental effects, and assess
the risks posed by HAPs.

Abstract: This action is related to a
challenge to industry on the eve of
Earth Day, April 21, 1998, to come
forward quickly with needed test data
on high production volume (HPV)
chemicals. This challenge encompasses
approximately 2,800 chemicals which
are manufactured (including  imported)
in the aggregate at more than 1 million
pounds on an annual basis. The data
needed on these chemicals are: acute
toxicity, repeat dose toxicity,
developmental and reproductive
toxicity; mutagenicity ecotoxicity and
environmental fate. This rule will
require testing and recordkeeping
requirements for certain chemicals for
which industry does not voluntarily
agree to provide testing in a timely
manner. The  action is part of the
Chemical Right-to-Know Initiative,
which is described in the Regulatory
Plan. Industry has volunteered to
conduct needed testing on over 2155
of these HPV chemicals. The first rule
proposed testing for 37 unsponsored
HPV chemicals with substantial worker
exposure. The proposed rule was
published in the Federal Register on
December 26, 2000.

Abstract: EPA regulates the commercial
development of new chemicals that
have completed premanufacture notice
(PMN) review. In a PMN review, the
Agency assesses whether or not a
chemical's manufacture, import,
                    process, distribution, use, or disposal
                    outside the activities described in the
                    PMN may present an unreasonable risk.
                    EPA will issue Significant New Use
                    Rules (SNURs) requiring 90-day
                    notification to EPA from any
                    manufacturer, importer, or processor
                    who would engage in activities that are
                    designated as significant new uses.
                    Under the Expedited Follow-up Rule
                    (EFUR) which became effective on
                    October 12, 1989, EPA will identify
                    such new chemicals and publish them
                    in a batch SNUR 3 to 4 times per year.
                    Chemicals that were subject to a
                    proposed SNUR before the effective
                    date of the EFUR or do not qualify

  3066. SIGNIFICANT NEW USE RULE
  (SNUR); CHEMICAL-SPECIFIC SNURS
  TO EXTEND PROVISIONS OF
  SECTION 5(E) ORDERS

  Priority: Routine and Frequent

  Legal Authority: 15 USC 2604 TSCA
  sec 5

  CFR Citation: 40 CFR 721

  Legal Deadline: None

 Abstract: When the Agency determines
 that uncontrolled manufacture, import,
 processing, distribution, use or disposal
 of a premanufacture notification (PMN)
 substance may present an unreasonable
 risk, it may issue a section 5(e) consent
 order to-limit these activities. However,
 such orders apply only to the PMN
 submitter.  Once the new substance is
 entered on the Toxic Substances
 Control Act (TSCA) chemical inventory,
 others can manufacture, import or
 process the substance without controls.
 Therefore, EPA extends the controls to
 apply to others by designating
 manufacture, import or processing of
 the substances for uses without the
 specified controls as significant new
 uses. Under the Expedited Follow-Up
 Rule, which became effective on
 October 10, 1989 (54 FR 31314), EPA
 routinely publishes batch SNURs
 containing routine section 5(e) and
 non-5(e) SNURs. However, certain
 activities, such as modifications,
 withdrawals, revocations, and SNURs
 upon which comments are received in
 the direct final publication process, are
 subject to notice and comment
 rulemaking and are listed below.

 manufacture, importation, distribution
 and use of acrylamide and NMA grouts
 based on the unreasonable risk to
 workers who apply these grouts. Since
 that time, personal protective
 equipment that can provide adequate
 protection to workers has become
 available. EPA now believes that it may
 not be necessary to prohibit the use of
 these grouts to protect the health of
 grouters.

 3070. LEAD; REGULATORY
 INVESTIGATION UNDER THE TOXIC
 SUBSTANCES CONTROL ACT (TSCA)
 TO REDUCE LEAD (PB)
 CONSUMPTION AND USE
 Priority: Other Significant
 Legal Authority: 15 USC 2605 TSCA
 6
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 745
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This action initiates a
regulatory investigation under the
Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)
section 6 to determine if uses of lead
(Pb) present an unreasonable risk to
human health and the environment.
The investigation will involve
examination of the potential sources of
human or other exposure to lead
throughout the life cycle. Based on
information gathered, EPA may propose
TSCA section 6(a) rules to control
existing or new uses of Pb which pose
an unreasonable risk to human health
or the environment, and to explore the
desirability and feasibility of
discouraging overall consumption of Pb
in general.

3073. TSCA SECTION 8(E) POLICY;
NOTICE OF CLARIFICATION

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

Legal Authority: 15 USC 2607(e) TSCA
sec 8(e)

CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined

Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The TSCA section 8(e) Notice
of Clarification and Solicitation of
Public Comment would change certain
aspects of the 1978 TSCA section 8(e)
Policy Statement. The 1978 Policy
Statement describes the types of
information that EPA considers
reportable under section 8(e), the
substantial  risk reporting provision of
TSCA, and  describes the procedures for
reporting such information to EPA.
This clarification effort derives from a
review of the existing section 8(e)
guidance done in the context of
questions raised by companies
considering participating in the section
8(e) Compliance Audit Program (CAP).
As a result  of this review, EPA
determined that parts of the 1978
Policy Statement concerning the
reportability of information on
widespread and previously
unsuspected distribution in
environmental media and emergency
incidents of environmental
contamination needed some refinement.
The subject Federal Register action
solicited comment  on refined reporting
guidance concerning widespread and
previously unsuspected distribution in
environmental media and provides
additional circumstances where
information is not reportable because it
is  considered known to the
Administrator. Finally, the notice
solicited comments on changes to the
section 8(e) reporting deadline and the
standards for claims of confidentiality
for information contained in a notice
of substantial risk under section 8(e).

Abstract: EPA is issuing this rule
under the authority of Section 407 of
the Toxic Substances Control Act
(TSCA) to establish notification
procedures for lead abatement
professionals (certified under 40 CFR
745.226) conducting lead-based paint
activities, and training programs
(accredited under 40 CFR 225)
providing lead-based paint activities
courses. Specifically, this rule seeks to
establish procedures to notify the
Agency prior to commencement of
lead-based paint abatement activities as
required by 40 CFR 745.227(e)(4). In
addition, this rule seeks to establish
provisions which would require
training programs accredited under 40
CFR 745.225 to notify the Agency
under the following conditions: 1) prior
to providing lead-based paint activities,
training, and 2) following completion
of lead-based paint activities courses.
These notification requirements are
necessary to provide EPA compliance ,
monitoring and enforcement personnel
with information necessary to track
compliance activity and to prioritize
inspections. This rule supports 40 CFR
part 745, subpart L to ensure that lead
abatement professionals who inspect,
assess and remove lead-based paint,

 3075. LEAD; MANAGEMENT AND
 DISPOSAL OF LEAD-BASED PAINT
 DEBRIS
 Priority: Other Significant
 Legal Authority: 15 USC 2601 to 2671;
 42 USC 6901 to 6992
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 745
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: Currently, waste derived from
 lead-based paint (LBP) abatements is
 managed under the Resource
 Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
 hazardous waste regulations. Other
 Federal agencies (Department of
 Housing and Urban Development,
 Department of Health and Human
 Services) and several States and
 advocacy groups have expressed
 concern that the costs associated with
 the disposal of large volume
 architectural components (e.g., doors
 and windows) may interfere with
 abatement activities. EPA's Office of
 Prevention, Pesticides and Toxic
 Substances and the Office of Solid
 Waste have initiated a joint rulemaking
 to address the disposal of these
 architectural components. This
 rulemaking would  develop disposal
 standards for these components under
 the Toxic Substances Control Act
 (TSCA) title IV, (the definition of
 abatement under TSCA title IV, section
 401(1)(B), includes disposal).  The
 TSCA regulations would establish
 appropriate disposal standards for LBP
 architectural components and identify
 recycling and incineration activities
 that would be controlled or prohibited.
 To minimize duplication of waste
 management requirements, EPA is
 developing a companion RCRA rule to
 suspend temporarily hazardous waste
 management regulations applicable to
 lead-based paint debris which will be
 subject to the new TSCA standards.

                   Abstract: EPA has held public
                   meetings to involve stakeholders in the
                   design and development of a voluntary
                   program to evaluate commercial
                   chemicals to which children may have
                                     a high likelihood of exposure. The
                                     purpose of the voluntary program is to
                                     obtain toxicity and exposure data

20 of the 23 pilot chemicals have
volunteered to sponsor their chemicals
in tier 1 in the pilot. A workshop was
held in December 2001 to provide
sponsors with additional guidance on
the scope and content of the exposure
assessment they will prepare. A peer
consultation process will be used to
evaluate the scientific merits of the
hazard, exposure, and risk assessments
submitted by sponsors. The first
assessments developed for VCCEP are
expected to be received in mid 2002.

Abstract: The Chemical RTK Initiative

the finding that most commercial
chemicals have very little, if any,
publicly available toxicity information
on which to make sound judgments
about potential risks. There are three
key components to this 'initiative, each
of which is  being implemented, by EPA.
These are: collecting and making public
screening level toxicity data for 2,800
widely used commercial chemicals;
additional health effects assessment for
chemicals to which children are
substantially exposed; and the listing
and lowering of thresholds for
persistent, bioaccumulative, toxic
chemicals reported to the Toxic Release

3083. TRI: APA PETITION-EPCRA 313
DEFINITION OF OVERBURDEN AS IT
RELATES TO THE MINING INDUSTRY
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 11001 et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 372
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The regulatory definition for
EPCRA section 313 defines overburden
to mean any unconsolidated material
that overlies a deposit of useful
material or ores. It does not include any
portion of ore or waste rock.
Overburden generally lacks any
recoverable materials and contains only
trace amounts of EPCRA section 313
chemicals.  Under section 313, all
activities related to overburden are
exempt from threshold determinations
and release and other waste
management calculations because
overburden contains TRI chemicals in
negligible amounts and reporting is
unlikely to provide the public with
valuable information. On December 22,
1998, the National Mining Association
(NMA) petitioned EPA, pursuant to the
Administrative Procedures  Act (APA),
to change the current EPCRA 313
definition of overburden to include
both consolidated material  and
unconsolidated material. By making
such a change, consolidated material
that overlies an ore deposit would be
eligible for the overburden  exemption
(i.e., overburden generally lacks any
recoverable minerals and contains only
trace amounts of EPCRA section 313
chemicals). NMA asserts that EPA's
definition of overburden is inconsistent
with that of industry. NMA considers
overburden to be all material, both .•
consolidated and unconsolidated, that
overlies an ore deposit of useful
material and must be removed to allow
access to ore deposit.

 Abstract: This rule will address the
 remaining issues from the proposed
 rule of June 8,1998. (Reporting
 thresholds for gasoline and diesel fuel
 at retail gas stations were included in
 a separate final rule; 64 FR 7031,
 February 11,1999.) A supplemental
 proposal will address reporting
 thresholds for chemicals that pose
 minimal risk. The final rule will
 address: reporting thresholds for rock
 salt, sand, gravel and other chemicals
 that pose minimal risk; plain language
 rewrite and may consider reporting
 thresholds for facilities with some
 similarities to gas stations (motor pools,
 marinas, etc.) and guidance on
 approaches to State flexibility.

 3086. TRI; REVIEW OF CHEMICALS
 ON THE ORIGINAL TRI LIST
 Priority: Other Significant
 Legal Authority: 42 USC 1101 et seq
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 372
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: When TRI was established by
 Congress in 1986, the statutory
 language placed 309 chemicals and 20
 categories of chemicals on the TRI list;
 that is referred to as the original TRI
 list. The chemicals on the original  list
 were taken from two existing lists of
 toxic substances: the Maryland
 Chemical Inventory Report List of
 Toxic or Hazardous Substances, and the
 New Jersey Environmental Hazardous
 Substances list. This action constitutes
 the first systematic review of toxicology
 and environmental data for all -the
 chemicals on the original TRI list to
 determine whether data for those
 chemicals conform with the statutory
 criteria for listing of chemicals on TRI.
Chemicals for which data do not meet
the statutory criteria will be delisted.

Abstract: The Toxics Release Inventory
(TRI) requires reporting from facilities
which manufacture or process at least
 25,000 pounds of a listed chemical, or
otherwise use 10,000 pounds of a listed
 chemical. In determining amounts of
 listed chemicals that are manufactured,
 processed or otherwise used, facilities
 may be entitled to consider specific
 exemptions from reporting. EPA is
 presently reviewing a group of these
 exemptions. The categories of
 exemptions presently being
 reconsidered by EPA are the  structural
 component exemption, the routine
 janitorial and facility grounds
 maintenance exemption, the  personal
 use exemption, and the motor vehicle
 maintenance exemption. Also known as
 the otherwise-use exemptions because
 they are limited to otherwise-use
 activities, these exemptions are
 expressly provided for at 40 CFR
 372.38(c). EPA is also considering
 changes to the coal mining extraction
 activities exemption provided for at 40
 CFR 372.38(g).

 Abstract: The Office of Management
 and Budget (OMB) published a Federal
 Register Notice of final decision (62 FR
 68) to adopt the North American
 Industry Classification System (NAICS)
 for the United States. This rulemaking
 initiates the conversion from TRI
 Reporting using Standard Industrial
 Classification (SIC) codes to TRI
 Reporting using NAICS codes. The TRI
 Program will convert to NAICS without
 producing any  changes in the facilities
 that are now subject to TRI reporting.
 Therefore, there should be no increased
 burden resulting from this action.

 Abstract: On October 12,1994 (59 FR
 51816), EPA proposed to modify the
 listing of several chemicals on the
 extremely hazardous substances (EHS)
 list under the Emergency Planning and
 Community Right-to-Know Act. One
 petitioner requested the removal of
 isophorone diisocyanate (IPDI). EPA
 rejected the petitioner's request.
 However, in the review of the petition,
 EPA noticed that there was an error in
 the setting of the threshold planning
 quantity (TPOJ for IPDI, and proposed
 to correct the error in the October 12,
 1994 notice of proposed rulemaking.
 The other modifications to the EHS list
 were made final on May 7,1996;
 however, the TPQ for IPDI was not
 included in that final rule. The goal
 is to finalize the TPQ for IPDI.

Abstract: On November 30, 1994, EPA
added 286 chemicals and chemical
categories to the EPCRA section 313
list, including  39 chemicals as part of
two delineated categories. Each
chemical and chemical category was
found to meet  the statutory criteria
described in EPCRA section
313(d)(2)(A)-(C). At this time, EPA
deferred final action on 40 chemicals
and one chemical category until a later
date. These were deferred because the
comments received on them raised
difficult technical or policy issues
which required additional time to
address. EPA chose not to delay final
action on the 286 chemicals and
chemical categories because of the
additional time needed to address the
issues surrounding the smaller group of
40 chemicals and one chemical
category; rather, EPA believed it to be
in the spirit of community right-to-
know to proceed with the final
rulemaking of the additional chemicals
and chemical categories.

Abstract: Section 6607(b) of the
Pollution Prevention Act of 1990 (PPA)
(Pub. L. 101-508) requires the addition
of several data elements to the Toxic
Chemical Release Inventory (TRI)
reporting requirements as promulgated
under section 313 of the Emergency
Planning and Community Right-to-
Know Act of 1986 (EPCRA) (Pub. L.
 99-499). Section 313 of EPCRA requires
 owners or operators of certain facilities
that manufacture, process, or otherwise
 use listed toxic chemicals to annually
 report their releases of these chemicals
 to each environmental medium. The
 PPA mandates that section 313-covered
 facilities also report on source
reduction and recycling activities
relating to the toxic chemicals
beginning with the 1991 reporting year.
Since 1991 covered facilities have been
providing this information to EPA in
section 8, Source Reduction and
Recycling Activities, of EPA Form R.
On September 25, 1991 (56 FR 48475),
EPA proposed regulations which would
provide definitions and instructions for
reporting the PPA data elements on the
EPA Form R. In this action, EPA will
amend certain aspects of the September
25, 1991, proposed rule.

  Abstract: In May 1999, EPA published
  an advance notice of proposed

  the Agency has with the current land
  disposal restrictions (LDR) treatment
  standards for mercury bearing
  hazardous wastes. Based on the
  comments received on this ANPRM as
  well as other information the Agency
  has collected, we are now conducting
  a series of mercury treatability studies
  In conjunction with DOE. The data
                    from these studies will be presented in
                    a Notice of Availability (NODA). These
                    data are from a number of treatment
                    vendors treating several different types
                    of mercury wastes. In addition to
                    examining TCLP data, we are also
                    looking at alternative leaching
                    methodologies and other factors which
                    might affect long-term stability of the
                    treated wasteforms.

 Abstract: This action is for the
 development of proposed RCRA
 subtitle D regulations for the
 management of coal combustion wastes
 in landfills and surface impoundments
 that are generated by producers of
 electric  power, including electric
 utilities and independent power
 producers. On April 25, 2000 EPA
 issued a regulatory determination for
 fossil  fuel combustion wastes (65 FR
 32214, May 22,  2000). The purpose of
 the determination was  to decide
 whether certain wastes from the
 combustion of fossil fuels (including
 coal, oil and natural gas) should remain
 exempt from subtitle C (management as
hazardous waste) of the Resource
Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
                   for the coal, oil and natural gas
                   combustion wastes that were addressed.
                   The Agency's decision was to retain the
                   exemption from hazardous waste
                   management for all of the fossil fuel
                   combustion wastes. However, the
                   Agency also determined and
                   announced that waste management
                   regulations under RCRA subtitle D
                   (management as non-hazardous wastes)
                   are appropriate  for certain coal
                   combustion wastes that are disposed in
                   landfills and surface impoundments.
                   The utility industry has made
                   significant improvements in its waste
                   management practices over recent
                   years, and most State  regulatory
                   programs are similarly improving.
                   Nevertheless, public comments and
                   other analyses have convinced the
                   Agency that coal combustion wastes
                   could pose risks to human health and
                   the environment if they are not
                   properly managed. There is sufficient
                   evidence that adequate controls may
                  not be in place. For example, while
                  most States can now require newer
                  waste management units to include
                  liners and groundwater monitoring,  62
                  percent of existing utility surface
                  impoundments do not have
                  groundwater monitoring. In the
                  Agency's view, this justifies the
                  development of national regulations.
                  We note, however, that some waste
 management units may not warrant
 liners and/or groundwater monitoring,
 depending on site-specific
 characteristics. The Agency is initiating
 this action to develop and issue
 appropriate waste management
 regulations under subtitle D of RCRA.

Abstract: EPA is developing proposed
regulations for the management of coal
combustion wastes that are generated
by non-electric utility coal burners and
managed in landfills and surface
impoundments, and for the practice of
minefilling of coal combustion wastes.
On April 25, 2000 EPA issued a
regulatory determination for fossil fuel
combustion wastes (65 FR 32214, May
22, 2000) to announce its decision that
certain wastes from the combustion of
fossil fuels (including coal, oil and
natural gas) should remain exempt from
subtitle C (management as hazardous
waste) of RCRA. This regulatory
determination also announced that
regulations under RCRA subtitle D
(management as  non-hazardous wastes)
are appropriate for management of
certain coal combustion wastes that are
disposed in landfills and surface
impoundments. In addition, EPA stated
its plan to consult with the U.S.
Department of the Interior on
appropriate measures under the Surface
Mining Control and Reclamation Act
 (SMCRA) or RCRA or some
combination of both, to address the
 disposal of coal  combustion wastes
when used for minefilling in surface or
 underground mines.
 Although industry has made significant
 improvements in waste management
 practices over recent years, and most
 State regulatory programs are similarly
 improving, public comments and other
 analyses have convinced the Agency
 that coal  combustion wastes could pose
 risks to human health and the
 environment, if they are not properly
 managed. There is sufficient evidence
 that adequate controls may not be in
 place. For example, while most States
 can now require newer waste
 management units to include liners and
 groundwater monitoring, less than
 about 50  percent of existing non-utility
 landfills are lined (these statistics
exclude municipal solid waste landfills
which are not the subject of this
action). EPA acknowledges that some
waste management units may not
warrant liners and/or groundwater
monitoring, depending on site-specific
characteristics. The Agency also
decided that the practice of minefilling
coal combustion wastes could present
a danger to human health and the
environment under certain
circumstances. Since there are few
States that currently operate
comprehensive programs that
specifically address the unique
circumstances of minefilling, the
Agency believes national regulations
under RCRA subtitle D and/or SMCRA
may be appropriate.

Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: EPA has been actively
working to break down the barriers that
the environmental monitoring
community faces when trying to use
new monitoring techniques. As a first
step, EPA has accelerated its review
process for new methods by eliminating
several unnecessary internal review,
steps, and by streamlining the internal
approval process for each new method.
However, there are currently 32
citations in title 40 of the Code of
Federal Regulations (CFR) where the
use of SW-846 methods is required. As
a second step for speeding up the
approval process, EPA plans to remove
the requirements to use SW-846
methods for other than method denned
parameters (i.e., where the method
defines the regulations, such as the
Toxicity Characteristic Leaching
Procedure) from 40 CFR. This will
likely  lead to an even more streamlined
approval process  since SW-846 will
then be able to be handled strictly as
guidance and not need the regulatory
process for approval. This additional
streamlining will permit new, more
 cost-effective methods to attain public
 and regulatory authority acceptance in
 much less time, allowing required
 monitoring to be  done more cheaply,
 faster  and, in some cases, more
 accurately.

  3098. REVISIONS TO SOLID WASTE
  LANDFILL CRITERIA—LEACHATE
  RECIRCULATION ON ALTERNATIVE
  LINERS
  Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
  Legal Authority: 42 USC 6907; 42 USC
  6912; 42 USC 6944; 42 USC 6949a
  CFR Citation: 40 CFR 258
  Legal Deadline: None
  Abstract: EPA plans to propose a rule
  to allow leachate recirculation over
  alternative liner systems which meet
  the performance standard specified by
  the municipal solid waste landfill
  (MSWLF) criteria. The performance
  determination would be made by the
  State director of an approved MSWLF
 program. EPA also plans to propose a
 new section to the MSWLF criteria
 which will allow the alternative of
 clean closure of landfills rather than
 require the installation of a landfill cap,
 which would allow the solid waste in
 the MSWLF to be totally removed from
 the site and be properly disposed of
 at another site. Finally, EPA plans to
 propose an additional factor to 258.54
 for determining the frequency of
 ground water monitoring for the
 detection monitoring program specified
 in this subpart. The additional factor
 for consideration concerns liner
 performance where there is some direct
 system for determining liner
 performance. However, the minimum
 monitoring frequency would still be no
 less than once a year as stated in the
 existing regulation.

 waste regulations to exclude oil-bearing
 secondary materials, generated by the
 petroleum refining industry and others,
 from the definition of solid waste if the
 materials are destined to be processed
 in a  gasification device manufacturing
 synthesis gas fuel. We are planning to
 propose this exclusion in order to
 clarify and simplify RCRA jurisdiction,
 and to be consistent with other
 comparable existing exclusions. In this
 notice, we are also soliciting comment
 on an option to extend the exclusion
 to organic containing secondary
 materials generated by industries (other
 than the petroleum refining industry).

Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 6921
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 261
 Legal  Deadline: None
Abstract: This action would modify
RCRA rules that impact the
 management of solvent-contaminated
 shop towels and wipes. Solvent-
 contaminated shop towels and wipes
 are used throughout industry for
 equipment cleaning and other related
 facility operations. The spent shop
 towels and wipes can be hazardous
 wastes when the solvent used is either
 a characteristic or listed solvent. An
 examination of industry use and
 management practices reveals that
 many facilities may use only small
 amounts of solvent on their disposable
 wipes, and use small numbers of wipes
 daily — suggesting that these  materials
 may sometimes pose little or no risk
 to human health and the environment
 if disposed in municipal landfills.
Similarly, situations exist where both
disposable wipes and reusable shop
towels are not being managed according
to prescribed Federal and States' rules
and policies. Problems with this issue
have persisted since the late  1980s.

 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: This action will ultimately
 revise the existing Federal hazardous
 waste regulations to encourage
 recycling and better management of
 Cathode Ray Tubes (CRTs) by _
 proposing a conditional exclusion from
 the definition of solid waste for CRTs
 being recycling. A CRT is display
 component of a television or computer
 monitor. A CRT is made largely of
specialized glasses, some of which
contain lead to protect the user from
X-rays inside the CRT. Due to the lead,
when they are disposed of or
reclaimed, some CRTs are hazardous
wastes under the Federal Resource
Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
regulations. This rule will also propose
to streamline RCRA requirements for
managing mercury-containing
equipment by adding such equipment
to the universal waste rule. This rule
is planned in response to a June 9,
1998 recommendation on CRT
recycling from the Common Sense
Initiative (CSI) Council to the
Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA), and in response to a petition
from the Utilities Solid Waste Activities
Group regarding mercury-containing
equipment. CSI is a consensus-based
process  for developing cleaner, cheaper,
smarter  environmental improvements
that includes representatives of:
industry; environmental groups;
community groups; environmental
justice groups; labor and, Federal, State,
local, and tribal governments. The goal
of this proposal is to improve
management and encourage recycling,
thereby minimizing  disposal of lead,
increasing resource recovery, and
enhancing protection of human health
and the environment.

  processed. In addition, EPA is
  considering proposing: (1) changes to
  implementation of rule from using mass
  balance only, to choice of using direct

                   proposes to demonstrate that a
                   bioreactor with an alternative liner
                   system is as effective, or superior to
                   a bioreactor with the standard
                   composite liner currently allowed by
                  regulations. The main goal of this
   project is to deliver superior
   environmental performance (SEP) by
   capturing the additional airspace
   gained by accelerated decomposition of
   the waste. This benefits the County and
   its citizens by prolonging the life of the
   landfill and thereby postponing the
   siting of new solid waste management
   facilities, with their attendant social
   impacts, environmental impacts, and
   economic costs.

  regulatory definition of solid waste for
  certain wastewater treatment sludges
  (otherwise designated as Hazardous
  Waste No. F006) when they are used
  as ingredients in the production of
  cement. Without this exclusion, the
  sludges being legitimately recycled as
 substitutes for raw materials would
 remain subject to hazardous waste
 regulatory requirements', including the
 need for a storage permit by the cement

Abstract: EPA has proposed creating a
new type of general permit, called a
standardized permit, for facilities that
generate waste and routinely manage
the waste on-site in tanks, containers,
and containment buildings. Under the
standardized permit, facility owners
and operators would certify compliance
with generic design and operating
conditions set on a national basis. The
permitting agency would review the
certifications submitted by the facility
owners and operators. The permitting
agency would also be able to impose
additional site-specific terms and
conditions for corrective action or other
purposes, as called for by RCRA.
Ensuring compliance with the
standardized permit's terms and
conditions would  occur during
inspection of the facility after the
permit has been issued. The
standardized permit should streamline
the permit process by allowing facilities
to obtain and modify permits more
easily while maintaining the
protectiveness currently existing in the
individual RCRA permit process. The
proposal raised issues for public
comment on how all facilities receiving
RCRA permits can satisfy RCRA
corrective action requirements under
appropriate alternative state cleanup
programs and on financial assurance
          issues. The Agency is developing a
          final rule addressing this topic.

                                     items. Once designated, procuring
                                     agencies are required to purchase these
                                     items with the highest percentage of

                                     recycling loop. To date, EPA has
                                     designated 54 items under three

                                     EPA has also issued a Recovered

 KILN DUST (CKD)
 Priority: Other Significant
 Legal Authority: 42 USC 6912(a) RCRA

 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 256; 40 CFR 259;

 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: Cement kiln dust (CKD) is a
 high volume material byproduct of the
 cement manufacturing process, which
 potentially contains hazardous
 constituents such as lead, cadmium and
 chromium. CKD has been exempted
 since November 1980 from hazardous
 waste regulation under RCRA subtitle
 C by the Bevill Amendment. This
 amendment modified section 3001 of
RCRA to exempt certain special wastes
until further studies could be
completed and any applicable
regulations were promulgated. In
December 1993, EPA submitted a
Report to Congress with its findings on
the nature and management practices
associated with CKD. This was
followed in January 1995 by an EPA
regulatory determination published in
the Federal Register (60 FR 7366,
2/7/95), which concluded that
additional control of CKD is warranted.
                    In the regulatory determination EPA
                    committed to develop regulations that
                    would be tailored to protect human
                    health and the environment while
                    limiting burden on the regulated
                    community. These tailored regulations
                    would be developed under RCRA
                    subtitle C and, if necessary, the Clean
                    Air Act. As part of its regulatory
                    development effort, EPA has initiated
                    further studies and has held informal
                    discussions with stakeholders. A
                    proposed rule was issued (64 FR 45632,
                    8/20/99) which included a
                    comprehensive set of standards for the
                    management of CKD. EPA is currently
                    making an assessment as to which
                    regulatory approach will be appropriate
                    for CKD waste management.

3111. MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE
LANDFILL LOCATION RESTRICTIONS
FOR AIRPORT SAFETY
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

USC 6907; 42 USC 6912(a); 42 USC
6944; 42 USC 6945(c); 42 USC 6949(c)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 258.10(e)-(f)
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The direct final rule would
amend the municipal solid waste
landfill (MSWLF) location restrictions
for airport safety by adding location
restrictions to conform with those
contained in the Wendell H. Ford
Aviation Investment and Reform Act
for the  21st Century. The rule would
prohibit the construction or
establishment of a new MSWLF within
six miles of a public airport (1) that
has received grants under the Airport
and Airway Improvement Act of 1982,
as amended, and (2) that is primarily
designed for 60 passengers or less.
MSWLFs in the State of Alaska are
exempt. Because new MSWLFS are
subject to the statutory location
restrictions in addition to regulatory
location restrictions currently in effect
under 40 CFR 258.10, EPA is
promulgating the rule amendment to
prevent confusion regarding applicable
location restrictions for MSWLFs for
airport safety purposes, as well as to
notify affected entities of these
statutory restrictions. EPA is also
proposing a parallel rule identical to
this direct final action in order to
provide opportunity for comment on
the rule, although we view the action
as noncontroversial and do not
anticipate any adverse comments. The
regulated entities are expected to be:
(1) Federal agencies and state, local,
municipal and tribal governments
constructing or establishing new
MSWLFs within six miles of a public
airport and (2) industries involved in
constructing or establishing new
landfills within six miles of a public
airport.

Abstract: EPA plans to reduce the
burden imposed by the RCRA reporting
and recordkeeping  requirements to help
meet the Federal government-wide goal
established by the Paperwork
Reduction Act (PRA).
In June 1999, EPA published a Notice
of Data Availability (NODA) in the
Federal Register (64 FR 32859) to seek
comment on a number of burden
reduction ideas. After reviewing the
comments received on the NODA, EPA
proposed to implement many of these
ideas. The proposal was designed to
eliminate duplicative and nonessential
paperwork.
The main ideas for the final rulemaking
are: (1) eliminating or modifying one-
third of the 334 RCRA-required notices
and reports that are sent by the
regulated community to states and  EPA;
(2) eliminating the  RCRA emergency
response training requirements that
overlap with the Occupational Safety
and Health Administration
requirements; (3) eliminating the need
for facilities to record personnel
descriptions; (4) decreasing the
owner/operator self-inspection
frequency of hazardous waste tanks to
weekly; (5) providing states and EPA
with the opportunity to lengthen
owner/operator self-inspection
frequencies on a case-by-case basis for
containers, containment buildings, and
tanks; (6) eliminating the Land Disposal
Restrictions generator waste
determinations, recycler notifications
and certifications, hazardous debris
notifications and characteristic waste
determinations, and streamlining the
characteristic waste notification
procedures; and (7) modifying the
groundwater monitoring requirements
for hazardous waste facilities.

  Settlement agreement.
  Abstract: This rulemaking is intended
  to revise the current RCRA regulations
  that apply to recycling of hazardous
  wastes in the manufacture of zinc
  fertilizers. Specifically, it is intended to
  establish a more consistent application
  of these recycling requirements to zinc
  fertilizer products, to establish a set of
  standards for contaminants in RCRA-
  regulated zinc fertilizers that are more
  appropriate to fertilizers and are
  protective of human health and the
  environment, and to specify more
  appropriate, protective conditions for
  management of zinc-bearing hazardous
  secondary materials prior to recycling.'
  These regulatory revisions are expected
  to directly affect companies that
 manufacture zinc fertilizers from
 hazardous secondary materials, and is
 likely to benefit such manufacturers
 that are small businesses by removing
 certain regulatory disincentives to
 legitimate recycling activities.

                   262 Subpart H, which regulates
                   transboundary movement of hazardous

Abstract: The Virginia Landfills XL
project includes two solid waste
municipal landfills (SWMLF) operated
by subsidiaries of Waste Management
Inc. (WMI): Maplewood Recycling and
Waste Disposal Facility is located in
Amelia County, Virginia and King
George County Landfill and Recycling
Center. Both landfills accept municipal
solid waste and a small percentage of
biodegradable products (e.g.,
construction debris). Through this XL
project, the Maplewood and King
George landfills propose to implement
two variations of bioreactor landfill
systems and compare the relative
improvement in landfill performance at
the two different bioreactor project
sites. In a bioreactor landfill, controlled
quantities of liquids are added and
circulated through waste to accelerate
the natural biodegradation rate of waste
and therefore decrease the waste
stabilization and composting time
compared to a conventional landfill.
The Maplewood bioreactor will
recirculate liquids (primarily leachate)
generated at the facility. The King
George bioreactor will recirculate
facility-generated leachate plus other
liquids, such as non-hazardous liquid
waste or storm water. These activities
collectively should decrease emissions
of landfill gas, accelerate waste
decomposition, improve leachate
quality, and increase the waste capacity
of the existing landfills.

Abstract: The Uniform Hazardous
Waste Manifest (Form 8700-22) is a
multi-copy form used to identify the
quantity, composition, origin, routing,
and destination of hazardous waste
during its transportation. The manifest
system's current reliance on paper
results in significant paperwork and
cost burden to waste handlers and
States who choose to collect manifest
information. The Agency intends to
pursue an optional approach that
would use information technologies  to
conduct the  manifest process
electronically, thereby reducing
paperwork burden, and improving the
speed and accuracy of preparing,
transmitting, and recordkeeping the
manifest form. In addition, the Agency
intends to standardize further the
manifest form elements, and to specify
one format for the manifest that may
be used in all states. The Agency also
intends to announce standard
requirements for tracking rejected
wastes, container residues, and
international shipments of hazardous
wastes.

 Abstract: In the final hazardous waste
 Toxicity Characteristic (TC) rule
 published in June 1990, EPA decided
 to temporarily defer application of the
 TC rule to petroleum-contaminated
 media and debris, such as soils and
 groundwater, that result from
 underground storage tank (UST)
 corrective actions. This rule is part of
 the Agency's commitment to make a
 final determination regarding the UST
 temporary deferral. The temporary
 deferral was, in part, based on the
 Agency's concern that without such a
 deferral, UST cleanup procedures
 would be adversely affected, resulting
 in delays in remedial action and
 increases in remediation costs. Since
 this action is deregulatory, there are no
 adverse effects on small businesses, or
 on State, local, or tribal governments.

Abstract: This action addresses the
potential human health and
environmental risks posed by wastes
from the manufacture of dyes and
pigments, and determines whether
these wastes should be listed as
hazardous wastes under RCRA to
                     control any potentially unacceptable
                     risks. If listed under RCRA, these
                     wastes would also be added to the
                     CERCLA list of hazardous substances.
                     This action will be implemented by
                     EPA and States authorized under
                     RCRA. There may be some" small
                     business  impacts. EPA proposed listing
                     decisions for most wastes in 1994
                     (Dyes-I), and deferred decisions on
                     several others. Two deferred waste
                     streams (filter aids and triarylmethane
                     sludges) are subject to  separate
                     deadlines for proposed and final action
                     (Dyes II rulemaking). The Dyes II
                     NPRM was published on July 23, 1999.
                     The rules proposed in  1994 and 1999
                     were incomplete because they did not
                     contain information claimed to be
                     confidential by industry. Therefore, a
                     NODA for each proposal will be
                    necessary, when EPA is able to release
                    an adequate record. The deadlines are
                    based on  recent settlement discussions
                    with plaintiffs in EDF v. Browner, Civil
                    Action No.  89-0598 D.D.C.
                    As part of the listing of dyes and
                    pigments  effort, EPA will also develop
                    land disposal restrictions for these dyes
                    and pigments.

 DEFINITION  OF SOLID WASTE

 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 261.2
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: Under RCRA, to be a.
 hazardous waste, a material must also
 be a solid waste. EPA's framework for
 determining whether a material is a
 solid waste is based on what the
 material is, and how it's managed (e.g.,
 how it is used, reused, etc.). For
 materials being recycled, RCRA
 jurisdiction is complex and the history
 of legal decisions related to the
 definition of solid waste is extensive
 (AMC I, API I, AMC II, ABR, API II,
 etc.). In response to one of the most
 recent decisions, the Association of
 Battery Recyclers, v. EPA  208 F.3d
 1047 (2000) (ABR), EPA has decided
 to initiate development of a proposed
 rule to revise the definition of solid
 waste. We expect that the proposed
 rule will be broad in scope and will
 specifically address materials
 undergoing reclamation. In the context
 of reclamation, we plan 'to discuss
 options for how to distinguish materials
 that are discarded from'materials that
 remain in use .in a continuous
 industrial process and  we anticipate
proposing a definition  of continuous
 industrial process. Generally, we
believe that removing the specter of

Abstract: The revised financial
responsibility test is intended to
improve the current test in predicting
which firms will enter bankruptcy and
not be able to cover their financial
obligations for liability and closure
costs of hazardous waste treatment,
storage and disposal facilities. A
bankrupt firm may be unable to afford
the proper closure of a facility which
would require the government to incur
response costs at the facility. The rule
would also qualify owners and
operators of RCRA Treatment, Storage,
and Disposal Facilities which must
currently use more expensive ways,
such as surety bonds or letters of credit,
of demonstrating financial assurance, to
use the  less expensive corporate
financial responsibility test for more of
their obligations. The combined savings
from screening out-riskier firms and
making  the test more available to viable
firms would be approximately $19
million  annually in public and private
costs. These regulatory amendments
would have no effect on local or tribal
governments.

                                     proposed revised treatment standards
                                     for K088 wastes. Specifically, the
                                     Agency proposed to lower the cyanide
                                     treatment standard and reinstate a

 Abstract: Under the Clean Air Act
 (CAA), EPA is required to establish
 National Emission Standards for
 Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs)
 for most hazardous waste combustors
 (HWCs) (i.e., incinerators, cement kilns,
 boilers, and some types of smelting
 furnaces). In addition, under the
 Resource Conservation and Recovery
 Act (RCRA), EPA is required to
 establish standards for all HWCs as
 necessary to ensure protection of
 human health and the environment.
 The Agency is in the process of
 developing a proposal to address
 boilers and possibly other industrial
 furnaces, which combust hazardous
 wastes.

 Abstract: Under the Clean Air Act
  (CAA), EPA is required to establish
 National Emission Standards for
 Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs)
 for most hazardous waste combustors
 (HWCs) (i.e., incinerators, cement kilns,
 boilers, and some types of recovery
 furnaces). In addition, under the
 Resource Conservation and Recovery
 Act (RCRA), EPA is required to
 establish standards for all HWCs as
 necessary to ensure protection of
 human health and the environment.
 Consequently, the Agency established
 in the HWC Maximum Achievable
 Control Technology (MACT) rule new  '
 emissions standards for cement kilns,
 lightweight aggregate kilns, and
 incinerators under CAA authority on
 September 30, 1999 (64 FR 52828).
 Following promulgation, issues were
 raised by the regulated community
 through informal comments and
 through litigation. A clarification rule
 was proposed on July 3.J2001 (66 FR
 35126). A final rule changed and
 clarified a subset of the proposed
 amendments to the finalPhase I rule
 (February 14, 2002, 67 FR 6968). An
 interim final rule was issued on
 February 13, 2002 to establish
 amendments to certain implementation
 requirements (67 FR 6792). EPA will
 promulgate final replacement standards
 to replace the interim standards
 promulgated on February 13, 2002.

 REGULATION: REVISIONS
 Priority: Other Significant
 Legal Authority: 33 USC 1321 CWA sec
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 112
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: Following a major inland oil
 spill with substantial environmental
 impacts (i.e., Ashland Oil in Floreffe,
 PA, in January 1988), an interagency
 task force recommended steps to
 improve EPA's oil spill prevention
 program (40 CFR part 112). This
 program requires oil storage facilities to
prevent and contain discharges that
 could reach waters of the United States.
On October 22, 1991, the Agency
proposed revisions to implement some
                  of the task force recommendations and
                  on February 17, 1993, the Agency
                  proposed further clarifications and
                  technical changes to the spill
                  prevention regulations. On December 2,
                  1997, EPA supplemented the 1991 and
                  1993 proposed revisions with a
                  proposal to reduce burdens associated
                  with the oil spill prevention program
                  by reducing the recordkeeping
                  provisions or exempting some facilities

3132. REPORTABLE QUANTITY
ADJUSTMENTS FOR CARBAMATES
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 11004; 42
USC 9602(a)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 302; 40 CFR 355
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: EPA has listed carbamate
waste streams as hazardous wastes
under the Resource Conservation and
Recovery Act (RCRA). RCRA listed
wastes, by statute, automatically
become hazardous substances under the
Comprehensive Environmental
Response, Compensation, and Liability
Act (CERCLA) and are assigned a one
pound statutory reportable quantity
(RQ) unless EPA adjusts them. These
substances also become subject to
reporting requirements under the
Emergency Planning and Community
Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) with a one
pound threshold. EPA, in this action,
will propose RQ adjustments for the
carbamates. Most RQ adjustments are
expected to be greater than one pound.
Raising the RQs for these substances
would decrease the burden on 1) the
regulated community for complying
with the reporting requirements under
CERCLA and EPGRA;  2) Federal, State,
 and local authorities for program
 implementation; and 3) Federal, State,
 or local authorities, if they release
 hazardous substances  at the RQ level
 or greater.

 3133. STREAMLINING THE
 PREAUTHORIZATION MIXED
 FUNDING FOR APPLICATION AND
 IMPLEMENTATION OF CLAIMS
 AGAINST SUPERFUND
 Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
 Legal Authority: 42 USC 9601
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 307
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: Current regulations at 40 CFR
 part 307 provide for the
 preauthorization of claims against the
 Superfund in instances where the
 Agency makes a determination that
 mixed funding is appropriate. This
 process has been labeled by many
 stakeholders as overly burdensome. The
 Agency has reviewed the current
 process in order to identify areas in
 which burdens may be lessened and
 requirements may be streamlined. As a
 result, the Agency is considering a
 proposal to amend the current
 regulation to: streamline the application
 process by eliminating duplicative
 information requirements; minimize the
 requirements related to management,
 oversight, and reporting of the cleanup,
 by removing the requirement to be
 guided by the Federal Acquisition
 Requirements, and replacing the
 requirement of maximum free  and open
 competition with a bright-line standard;
 allow claimants to provide independent
 certification of claims and supporting
 documentation; streamline the actual
 payment process by taking advantage of
 the electronic funds transfer process;
• ensure that cost recovery concerns are
  addressed by requiring claimants,
 within a settlement document, to
 reimburse the Fund for costs not
 recovered (only in the event cost
  recovery is initiated), due to claimants'
  failure to provide adequate
  documentary support or upon a
  determination that response costs
  expended (and claimed) were not
  reasonable or not incurred consistent
  with the National Contingency Plan
  and ensure proper accounting by
  requiring offsets for funds owed to the
  Agency by claimants.

3134. COOPERATIVE AGREEMENTS
AND SUPERFUND STATE
CONTRACTS FOR SUPERFUND
RESPONSE ACTIONS
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 9601 to 9675
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 35 subpart O
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: 40 CFR part 35  subpart O is
the Superfund Administrative
Regulation that governs awarding of
Superfund cooperative agreements
 (CAs) to States, Indian tribes, and
territories of the United States. Subpart
 O covers State-lead, site-specific
 cooperative agreements for non-time-
 critical removal, preremedial, remedial,
 and enforcement actions,  and site-
 specific management assistance for
 federal-lead projects. Also covered by
 subpart O are non-site-specific Gore'
 Program and Voluntary Cleanup
 Program State infrastructure
 development, as well as Brownfields
 pilots, and Brownfields assessments.
 The requirements for Superfund State
 contracts, financial administration,   :
 property, procurement, reporting, ;
 recordkeeping, and closeout are
 provided in subpart  O.
 Subpart O was promulgated 6/5/1990,
 and became effective on 7/5/1990.
 Many changes in the Superfund
 program have occurred over the past
 almost ten years and these need to be
 reflected in subpart O. The six
 categories of CAs presently used in
 subpart O need greater flexibility to
 accommodate the new types of CAs
 that have developed. For example, the
 number of Block Funding Reform
 pilots, begun in 1997, to  consolidate
 several of the cooperative agreements

Federal Register/Vol.  67, No. 92/Monday, May 13, 2002/Unified Agenda
   EPA—Comprehensive  Environmental Response,  Compensation and  Liability Act   Proposed  Rule Stage
  offered in subpart O, has grown to
  about 16 for fiscal year 2000, and have
  generated at least 60 approved
  deviation requests from subpart O and
  40 CFR part 31. These pilot projects
  offer considerable administrative relief
  to States, tribes, and EPA by reducing
  reporting requirements, broadening
  scope changes without amendment,
  increasing the ability to move monies
  within and among CAs, and relaxing
  application requirements regarding site-
  specific identification of cooperative
  agreement funds to certain activities,
  while maintaining site-specific
  drawdown requirements needed for
  cost recovery and Superfund
  accounting. Subpart O also needs to be
  conformed with part 31 (Uniform
                    Administrative Requirements for Grants
                    and Cooperative Agreements).

                    EPA expects to institutionalize the
                    combining of CA types, create more
                    flexible reporting requirements, permit
                    greater scope changes without
                    amendment, provide more flexible
                    money movement within and among
                    CAs, and other policy advances in
                    State/tribal/EPA interaction.

 Abstract: EPA has reviewed the
 portions of the Code of Federal
 Regulations (CFR) related to the release
 reporting program under the
 Comprehensive Environmental
 Response, Compensation, and Liability
 Act (CERCLA). Within these
 regulations, which  appear in 40 CFR
 part 302, EPA has identified several
 categories of errors, including: (l)
 typographical errors in the table of
 CERCLA hazardous substances (Table
 302.4 in 40 CFR 302.4); (2)  definitions
                   made legally obsolete because of
                   changes in CERCLA's statutory
                   provisions; and (3) redundant or
                   unnecessary information (particularly
                   in the Regulatory synonyms, Statutory
                   RQ, and Final RQ Category columns of
                   Table 302.4) that could be removed
                   from the CFR to reduce potential
                   confusion.
                   Correcting the typographical  errors,
                   updating definitions, and removing
                   redundant information in 40  CFR part
                   302 will not affect the scope  of what
                   is regulated or how it is regulated. For
                   this reason, EPA is developing a final
                   rule to make  these minor corrections.
                  EPA does not anticipate any substantial
                  impact on small businesses or
                  State/tribal/local governments because
                  the final rule will not introduce any
                  new regulations or impose  new
                  burdens. The corrections included in
                  this rulemaking will serve to  reduce
 confusion among the regulated
 community and government authorities.

  Abstract: This action will propose
  revisions to subpart J of the National
  Contingency Plan (NCP) (40 CFR part
  300.900). Section 311(d)(2)(G) of the
  Clean Water Act requires that EPA
  prepare a schedule of dispersants, other
  chemicals, and other spill mitigating
  devices and substances, if any, that
  may be used in carrying out the NCP.
  Under subpart J,  respondents wishing
  to add a product to the Product
  Schedule  must submit technical
  product data specified in 40 CFR
  300.915 to EPA. This rulemaking will
  propose revisions to subpart J to clarify
  and change  protocols for effectiveness
  and toxicity testing. It will clarify EPA
  authority  to remove products from the
  Product Schedule. These changes will
  help ensure protection of the
  environment when these products are

  into or upon navigable waters,
  adjoining shorelines, the waters of the
 contiguous zone, or which may affect
 natural resources belonging to or under

  Abstract: The effluent guidelines will
  apply to construction activities
  associated with new development, as
  well as to those associated with re-
  development activities. The regulations
 will address storm water runoff from
 construction sites during the active
 phase of construction, as well as post-
 construction runoff. Construction
 activity is a major source of sediment
 and other pollutants discharged to the
 nation's waters.  Industries potentially
 affected by this rulemaking include
 land developers, home builders,
 builders of commercial and industrial
 property, and other private and public
 sector construction site owners and
 operators. EPA will develop design
 criteria for erosion and sediment
 controls and storm water best
 management practices (BMPsJ. These
 requirements will be implemented in
 NPDES storm water permits issued to
 construction site owners and operators.

                  commercial agricultural and industrial
                  operations nationwide. Currently, there
                  are no Federal technology-based
                  standards for aquatic animal production
                  facilities, which are part of the
                  aquaculture industry. This action is a
                  new effort to develop pollutant controls
                  in the form of nationally applicable
                  discharge standards for commercial and
                  public aquaculture operations. In
                  assessments of surface water quality,
                  States most frequently cite siltation,
                  nutrients, and pathogens as the major
                  cause  of water quality impairment.
                  With the growth of the aquaculture
                  industry, and inconsistent State
                  regulatory oversight, EPA will examine

 standards are not consistent with the
 requirements of the CWA and its
 supporting regulations, and are
 subsequently disapproved by EPA, the
 State must revise the disapproved water

 Abstract: This regulatory action would

 part 136 to approve a new analytical
 test procedure (method) for the
 determination of mercury in the
 wastewater program as authorized
 under the Clean Water Act (CWA), This
 new test procedure is capable of
 measuring mercury at low parts-per-
 trillion (ppt; ng/L) concentrations  and
 would be an alternative to the recently
 promulgated EPA Method 1631, which
also determines mercury at low ppt
concentrations. EPA Method 245.7 uses
similar technology to EPA Method 1631
(cold vapor atomic fluorescence
spectrometry), but it does not require
the use of a gold trap. Laboratories
claim that EPA Method 245.7 is a less
burdensome and more cost-effective
method than EPA Method 1631.

  the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).
  The current method detection limit
  (MDL) procedure is set forth at 40 CFR
  part 136, appendix B. EPA has not
  promulgated a generic procedure for
  quantification but it uses the minimum
  level of quantitation (ML) in its
  wastewater program and the practical
  quantitation level (PQL) in its drinking
  water program. The ML is denned in
  analytical methods and is generally set
  at 3.18 times the MDL. The  PQL is
  generally set at five to ten times the
  MDL. The Office of Water has been
  working to revise and refine these
  concepts in response to the  need to
  regulate pollutants at low levels (often
  levels that are lower than measurement
  capabilities will allow) and  to address
  other potential approaches to detection
  and quantification, including concepts
  being introduced by outside
  organizations such as voluntary
  consensus standards bodies  (VCSBs).
  The rulemaking would also re-evaluate
  the current MDL and quantification
  approaches and assess alternative
  approaches.

                    methods for wastewater, ambient water
                    quality, and drinking water, including
                    new and updated versions of methods
                    from voluntary consensus standards
                    bodies and other organizations. These
                    methods are used to comply with
                    monitoring requirements in the
                    wastewater, ambient water quality
                    and/or drinking water programs, as
                   authorized under the Clean Water Act
                    (CWA) and Safe Drinking Water Act.
                   This regulation would propose new
                   methods for metals  such as Method
                   1638 (which utilizes ICP/MS), new
                   methods for chemical pollutants (e.g.,
                   Method 245.7), and  updated methods
                   for chemical and biological pollutants
                   (e.g., Methods 625 and 1625), including
                   methods from voluntary consensus
                   standards bodies (VCSBs), and from
                   other external organizations. The new
                   and updated methods include methods
                   from organizations such  as the
                   American Society for Testing and

 Abstract: This rulemaking affects, at a
 minimum, existing electricity
 generating facilities that employ cooling
 water intake structures1 and whose
 intake flow levels exceed a minimum
 threshold to be determined by EPA
 during the rulemaking. Section 316(b)
 of the Clean Water Act provides  that
 any standard established pursuant to
 sections  301 or 306 of the Clean  Water
 Act and  applicable to a point source  ~
 shall require that the location, design,
 construction, and capacity of cooling
 water intake structures reflect the best
 technology available for minimizing
 adverse environmental impact, A
 primary purpose of the 'rulemaking is
 to minimize any adverse environmental
 impact that may be associated with the
 impingement and entrainment of fish
 and other aquatic organisms by cooling
 water intake structures. Impingement
 refers to trapping fish and other aquatic
 life on intake screens QT; similar devices
 where they may be injured or killed.
 Entrainment  occurs when smaller
 aquatic organisms, eggs, and larvae are
 drawn into a cooling system and then
pumped back out, often with significant
injury or  mortality due to heat, physical
stress or exposure to chemicals.

Abstract: EPA is developing a notice
of proposed rulemaking that would
propose a broad-based regulatory
framework for sanitary sewer collection
systems under the NPDES program. The
Agency is proposing standard permit
conditions for inclusion in permits for
publicly owned treatment works
(POTWs) and municipal sanitary sewer
collection systems. The standard
requirements address reporting, public
notification, and recordkeeping
requirements for sanitary sewer
overflows (SSOs), capacity assurance,
management, operation and
maintenance requirements for
municipal sanitary sewer collection
systems; and a prohibition on SSOs.
The Agency is also proposing a
regulatory framework for applying
NPDES permit conditions, including
applicable standard permit conditions,
to municipal satellite collection
systems. Municipal satellite collection
systems are sanitary sewers owned or
operated by a municipality that
conveys wastewater to a POTW
operated by a different municipality.

Abstract: EPA is proposing to modify
the existing regulations implementing
the ocean protection provisions of
section 403 of the Clean Water Act. A
key element of the proposed rule would
provide for establishment of baseline
water quality standards for ocean
waters beyond three miles offshore.
These waters, designated "Healthy
Ocean Waters," would be protected by
both a narrative statement of desired
quality and pollutant-specific numeric
criteria. The proposed rule also would
strengthen the requirements for a
permit to discharge to any ocean
waters, and would create a process for
establishing Special Ocean Sites
(SOSs), which are areas within ocean
waters  that are of outstanding value,
where new and significantly expanded
discharges would be prohibited. The
proposed rule will enhance the
protection of the ocean environment
and meet the goals  of the Executive
Order on Marine Protected Areas (E.O.
13158).

Abstract: This action involves joint
rulemaking by EPA and the Department
of the Army to amend the regulatory
definition of waters of the United
States. The proposal would clarify the
                    jurisdictional status under the Clean
                    Water Act (CWA) of so-called isolated
                    intrastate waters and wetlands. The
                    existing regulations contain language
                    asserting jurisdiction over isolated
                    intrastate waters, but that regulatory
                    provision has been the subject of a
                    January 9, 2001, U.S. Supreme Court
                    opinion. Revision of the regulatory
                    language is necessary to address the
                    Court's decision, improve regulatory
                    clarity, and provide more specificity
                    regarding CWA jurisdiction. The
                    rulemaking would clarify CWA
                    jurisdiction for entities (e.g., industrial,
                    commercial, governmental) that
                    discharge pollutants, including dredged
                    or fill material, to isolated intrastate
                    surface waters  or wetlands. Significant
                    impacts on small entities or
                    State/local/tribal governments are not
                    anticipated, as  the proposed regulatory
                    revisions would be consistent with the
                    Supreme Court ruling.

Abstract: EPA is developing effluent
limitations guidelines for facilities that
generate wastewater while processing
metal parts; metal products; and
machinery,  including manufacture,
assembly, rebuilding, repair, and
maintenance. In 1995 EPA proposed
regulations for seven industrial groups:
aircraft, aerospace, hardware, ordnance,
stationary industrial equipment, mobile
industrial equipment, and electronic
equipment.  EPA has consolidated this
rulemaking  with a second phase, whose
scope would include additional
industrial groups such as: bus and
truck, household equipment,
instruments, motor vehicles, office
machines, precious  metals and jewelry,
railroads, job shops, printed circuit
boards, and ships and boats. The
deadlines and timetable apply to the
consolidated Phase  1 and 2 rulemaking.

Abstract: This regulatory action would
amend the Guidelines Establishing Test
Procedures for the Analysis of
Pollutants under 40 CFR part 136,
National Primary Drinking Water
Regulations under 40 CFR part 141, and
National Secondary Drinking Water
Regulations under 40 CFR part 143 to
approve updated versions of analytical
test procedures (methods) from
voluntary consensus standards bodies
and other organizations. These methods
are used to comply with monitoring
requirements in the wastewater and
drinking water programs, as authorized
under the Clean Water Act (CWA) and
the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).
This regulation would  approve updated
versions of methods  for determination
of chemical, radiological, and
microbiological pollutants in
wastewater and drinking water. The
updates are to methods from voluntary
consensus standards bodies (the
American Society for Testing and
Materials and Standard Methods) and
from the U.S. Geological Survey and
the Department of Energy. Previously
approved versions of the methods being
updated remain approved. Because EPA
received adverse comments on the
direct final rule published on January
16, 2001, the Agency withdrew the
direct final on May 15, 2001. EPA plans
to issue a final rulemaking addressing
the adverse comments  by early 2002,
based on a companion proposal to the
direct final rule.

Abstract: This proposal would amend
EPA Method 1631 to add new
requirements for clean techniques and
quality control (QC)  beyond those
specified in EPA Method 1631 for the
determination of mercury at water
quality criteria levels. EPA Method
1631 was promulgated at 40 CFR 136
in June 1999. Later that year, the
Alliance of Automobile  Manufacturers,
the Chemical Manufacturers
Association, and the Utility Water Act
Group (Petitioners) filed a petition for
judicial review of the final rule. One
of the issues in the petition related to
the clean sampling techniques and  QC
requirements in the Method. As part of
a Settlement Agreement in October
2000, EPA agreed to sign a Federal
Register notice proposing additional
clean techniques and QC requirements
for Method 1631 by  September 30,
2001, and to take final action by
September 30,  2002.

 Final, Judicial, November 8, 2002,
 Settlement agreement.

 Abstract: This regulatory action would
 propose to amend the Guidelines
 Establishing Test Procedures for the
 Analysis of Pollutants under 40 CFR
 part 136 by revising several whole
 effluent toxicity (WET) test methods
 and by ratifying or withdrawing WET
 test methods listed in Table IA for use
 under the Clean Water Act. These
 methods were promulgated on October
 16, 1995 (60 FR 53529). The proposed
 regulation is needed to satisfy the terms
 of two settlement agreements (entered
 into by EPA and Edison Electric
 Institute, et al., and Western Coalition
 of Arid States on July 24, 1998; and
 entered into by EPA and Lone Star
 Steel in January 1997). This proposal
 will amend the 1995 rule by revising
 three WET method manuals, and by
 ratifying or withdrawing each of the
 WET test methods challenged in the
 settlement agreements from these three
 manuals. Specific revisions include: the
 requirement of blocking by parentage in
 Method 1002, the requirement for
 demonstration of valid concentration-
 response relationships, the inclusion of
 specific procedures to control pH drift,
 and the inclusion of procedures to
 reduce pathogenic interferences in
 Method 1000.

 3159. COMPARISON OF DREDGED
 MATERIAL TO REFERENCE
 SEDIMENT
 Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
 Legal Authority: 33 USC 1344 CWA sec
 404
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 230
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: This action would revise the
 testing provisions of the Clean Water
 Act section 404(b)(l) Guidelines to
 provide for comparisons between
 dredged material proposed for
 discharge and reference sediment.
 Reference sediment would be defined
 as sediment that reflects conditions  at
 the disposal site had no dredged
 material disposal ever occurred there.
 Because the disposal site itself is
 currently used as the point of
 comparison, this action would make a
 technical improvement in assessing
 cumulative impacts and help make
 dredged material testing under section
 404 more consistent with that
 conducted for ocean disposal, which
 currently employs a reference sediment
 approach. This action is not expected
 to have a significant impact on state,
 local, or tribal governments or small
business, as the action will be limited
 to Corps projects and permit
 applications for which dredged material
testing is necessary, and because the

                    Legal  Deadline:  None
                    Abstract: Section 404 of the Clean
                    Water  Act requires a permit from the
                    U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps)
                    for discharges of dredged or fill
                    material to waters of the United States.
                    The Environmental Protection Agency
                    (EPA]  and Corps' regulations
                    implementing section 404 currently
                    contain differing definitions of the term
                    "fill material." In particular, the Corps
                    regulations define fill material as being
                    used for the primary purpose of
                    replacing an aquatic area with dry land
                    or changing the bottom elevation of a
                    water body. In contrast, EPA's
                    definition of fill material looks to
                    whether the effect is to replace waters
                    of the United States with dry land or
                    change the bottom elevation of water
                    bodies, and does not contain a primary
                    purpose test as found in the Corps'
                    regulations. In order to clarify what
                    constitutes fill material for purposes of
                    section 404 and provide improved
                    regulatory certainty, the Corps and EPA
                    are conducting notice and comment
                    rulemaking to achieve greater
                    consistency between the two agencies'
                    definitions of fill material.

 Abstract: This rulemaking concerns
 dioxin and dioxin-like compounds in
 sewage sludge that is applied to the
 land. Section 405 of the Clean Water
 Act (CWA) requires EPA to promulgate
 regulations providing guidelines for the
 use and disposal of sewage sludge,
 including numeric standards for toxic
 pollutants which may adversely affect
 human health and the environment and
 management practices. EPA
 promulgated the first round of
 regulations, which set standards for
 toxic pollutants in sewage sludge for
 which  information was 'available and
 management practices for  land
 application, surface disposal and
 incineration of sewage sludge (58 FR
 9248, Feb. 19, 1993). EPA  proposed the
second round of regulations, for other
toxic pollutants not regulated in the
first round, in December 1999 (64 FR
 72045, Dec. 23, 1999). The proposed

rule would establish a limit of 300

of dry sewage sludge for land
application along with monitoring
requirements. The proposal also
proposed to take no regulatory action
with respect to dioxins in sewage
sludge that is disposed of at a surface
disposal site or incinerated in a sewage
sludge incinerator. EPA signed a final
notice of its determination not to
further regulate for dioxins in sewage
sludge that is disposed of at a surface
disposal site or incinerated in a sewage
sludge incinerator, and stated that final
action on the proposal to amend the
land application rule will be published
separately at a later date (66 FR 66228,

REVISIONS RE: USE AS MATCHING
FUNDS

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

Legal Authority: 33 USC 1383(h)

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 35.3125(b)(l)

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: This regulation will revise
the Clean Water State Revolving Fund
(CWSRF) Regulations to allow the use
of loans from the non-Federal and non-
State match share of CWSRF funds as
a match for infrastructure grants. In
1990, EPA issued regulations
implementing the CWSRF program,
established as Title VI of the Clean
Water Act (CWA) in 1987. Section
603 (h) of the CWA prohibits use of the
CWSRF loan as matching funds with
respect to the non-Federal share of the
cost of a treatment works project for
which a municipality ,or agency is
receiving assistance from the
Administrator under any other
authority. In issuing its regulations at
40 CFR 35.3125(b)(l), EPA interpreted
this prohibition broadly, applying the
restriction to all treatment works
construction. At that time, EPA
believed the replacement of the
construction grants program authorized
by Title II of the CWA by the CWSRF
would result in a significant decrease
in the use of other Federal grant funds
for treatment works construction.
However, from FY 1995 onward,
Congress has authorized and
appropriated funds for infrastructure
construction grants in various
Appropriations Acts. There are
currently over 700 projects  totaling over
$3.3 billion dollars. In several cases,
EPA has been asked to allow CWSRF
funds to be used as a match for these
grants; but 40 CFR 35.3125(b)(l)
prohibits such action. Upon
reconsideration, EPA has decided its
initial reading in 1990 was  too broad,
and the intent of Congress was only
to prohibit use of CWSRF loans as a
match for Title II construction grants.
This action will revise the regulations
to allow a State, in its operation of the :
CWSRF, to permit a CWSRF loan for   '
non-Title II infrastructure construction
grant projects to be used as a non-
Federal match in certain circumstances.
The prohibition on the use  of CWSRF
as a match for a Title II construction
grant will continue.

provided that the Water Quality
Cooperative Agreements (WQGA) and
Wetland Program Development Grants
(WPDG) will be awarded through a
competitive process. The proposed
modification to section 35.362 would
provide Regions with the discretion to
allocate a portion of WQCA funds to
States in accordance with program
guidance instead of awarding funds
based on a competition among States.
The proposed modification to section
35.382 Would provide Regions with an
option of allocating WPDG funds to
States that meet established criteria.
The proposed changes would provide
State, interstate, and local agencies
greater  flexibility in developing
comprehensive programs.

containers have a residue, or heel,
present in the containers before they
are cleaned. The accumulation of
residue from large numbers of drums

                    Abstract: EPA is considering proposing
                     a national rule containing core Federal
                    water quality standards (WQS) to
                     support tailored, site-specific  decisions
                     for certain waters in Indian country
                     that do not have EPA-approved tribal
                     standards. EPA is contemplating this
                     rule as a first step towards ensuring
                     that the core Clean Water Act (CWA)
                     framework for protecting water quality
                     is in place for all such waters. The core
Federal water quality standards would
establish: use designations consistent
with CWA section 101(a) goals, cultural
and traditional, and other uses; water
quality criteria for protecting the
designated uses; and an antidegradation
policy designed to protect water
quality. Such standards would provide
a basis for EPA (in consultation with
a tribe) to affect pollution discharges
occurring upstream from tribal waters,
provide a basis for including water
quality based limitations or conditions
in permits or certifications for
discharges within Indian country; and
provide the basis for establishing Total
Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for
Indian country waters. A Federal
promulgation would not prevent tribes
from developing their own standards.
The Office of Management and Budget
reviewed the proposal and returned it
to EPA on October 2, 2001, for further
consideration and analysis. EPA is
considering how to proceed.

  Abstract: This regulatory action would
  propose to amend the Guidelines
  Establishing Test Procedures for the
  Analysis of Pollutants under 40 CFR
  part 136 to approve new EPA methods
  for the determination of trace metals at
  EPA's water quality criteria levels.
  These methods are necessary for the
  implementation of water quality-based
  permits under the National Pollutant
  Discharge Elimination System (NPDES)
  of the Clean Water Act. Water quality-
  based permits are necessary when
  technology-based controls do not
  ensure that a particular water body
  would meet the State's designated
  water quality standard. Because the
  methods currently approved under 40
  CFR part 136 were designed to support
  primarily technology-based permitting
  needs, and because these technology-
  based levels are as much as 280 times
  higher than water quality-based criteria
  for metals, approval of new EPA test
 procedures is necessary.

                    procedures, and changes in columns
                    and detectors. The  methods further
                    require the  analyst  to demonstrate that
                    the method modifications will not
                    adversely affect the quality of data by
                   generating quality control results that
                   meet the specifications contained in the
                   method. Despite this stated flexibility,
                   the Agency has found that many
                   NPDES and pretreatment permitting
                   authorities are not aware of this
                   flexibility when issuing or enforcing
                   NPDES and pretreatment permits.
                   Therefore, this regulatory action will
                   highlight the existing method flexibility
                   and clarify EPA's position regarding its
                   application. This action will also
                   extend this flexibility to other methods
                   currently approved  under 40 CFR part
                   136. The purpose of extending this
                   flexibility to other methods is  to (1)
                   increase consistency between methods,
                   (2)  provide for increased recognition of
                   advances in analytical technology, and
                   (3)  reduce costs associated with
                   analytical measurements.

1361(a); CWA 501(a)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 136; 40 CFR 503
Legal Deadline:  None
Abstract: This regulatory action would
propose to amend the Guidelines
Establishing Test Procedures for the
Analysis of Pollutants under 40 CFR
parts 136 and 503 to approve EPA
Method 1668 for the congener-specific
 determination of co-planar and mono-
 ortho-substituted polychlorinated
 biphenyls (PCBs) in effluent, ambient
 water, and sludge. This method is
 necessary for the implementation of
 water quality-based permits under the
 National Pollutant Discharge
 Elimination System (NPDES) of the
 Clean Water Act. Water quality-based
 permits are necessary when technology-
 based controls do not ensure that a
 particular water body would meet the
 State's designated water quality
 standard. At present there is no EPA
analytical method for determination of
these PCBs at the levels of concern.
Therefore, approval of a new EPA test
procedure is necessary.

 3175. UNIFORM NATIONAL
  DISCHARGE STANDARDS FOR
 VESSELS OF THE ARMED FORCES -
 PHASE II
 Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
 Legal Authority: 33 USC 1322; 33 USC
 1361
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 1700
 Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory, May
 10, 2001.
 Abstract: This action is Phase H of
 implementing regulations on Uniform
 National Discharge Standards for
 Vessels of the Armed Forces. In 1996
 the Clean Water Act was amended to
 create section 312(n), Uniform National
 Discharge Standards for Vessels of the
 Armed Forces. Section 312(n) directs
 EPA and DOD to work together to
 provide Armed Forces vessels with a
 nationally uniform set of discharge
 standards, which preempt State
 discharge standards for these vessels.
 The purpose of the statute is to allow
 DOD to plan, design and build
 environmentally sound vessels, to
 encourage innovative pollution control
 technology, and to improve operational
flexibility. EPA and DOD jointly
 promulgated Phase I of these
 regulations, 40 CFR part 1700, on May
 10, 1999 (64 FR 25126). The Phase I
 rulemaking concluded that 25
 discharges from Armed Forces vessels
 would require control devices. Some of
 these discharges have the potential to
 introduce oil or other organics into
 receiving waters (such as bilge water);
 some have the potential to introduce
 copper or other metals (such as fire
 main); and some have the potential to
 introduce nonindigenous invasive
 aquatic species (such as ballast water).
 Phase II will establish performance
 standards  for control devices for these
 25 discharges.  Once DOD implements
 rules for achieving the standards set in
 Phase II, covered discharges from
 Armed Forces vessels will be required
 to meet these standards, and will not
be subject to discharge standards
 established by  States.

 Abstract: This rulemaking affects, at a
 minimum, existing facilities that use
 cooling water intake structures, and
 whose intake flow levels exceed a
 minimum threshold EPA will
 determine during this rulemaking. The
 affected facilities include (1) electricity
 generating facilities not covered by
 Phase 2 regulations; (2) pulp and paper
 manufacturing facilities; (3) chemicals
 and allied products manufacturing
 facilities; (4) petroleum1 and coal
 products manufacturing facilities; and
 (5) primary metals manufacturing
 facilities. Section 316(b) of the Clean
 Water Act provides that any standard
 established pursuant to'sections 301 or
 306 of the Clean Water Act and
 applicable to a point source shall
 require that the location, design,
 construction, and capacity of cooling
 water intake structures reflect the best
 technology available for minimizing
 adverse environmental impact. A
 primary purpose of this;action is to
 minimize the impingement and
 entrainment of fish and other aquatic
 organisms by cooling water intake
 structures. Impingement refers to
 trapping fish and other aquatic life
 against cooling water intake structures.
 Entrainment occurs when aquatic
 organisms, eggs and larvae are drawn
 into the cooling system, through the
heat exchanger, and then pumped back
 out with significant injury or mortality
to the entrained organisms.

 Abstract: The final rule will be
 promulgated as a program streamlining
 activity. The rule will revise certain
 provisions in the General Pretreatment
 Regulations (40 CFR Part 403) that
 address restrictions on and oversight of
 industrial discharges into  Publicly
 Owned Treatment Works (POTWs). The
 final rule will include exclusions or
 variable requirements for smaller
 facilities that contribute insignificant
 amounts of pollutants, clarify
requirements for implementing
Pretreatment Standards, and provide
more flexible reporting, inspection and
sampling requirements. The revisions
should provide greater flexibility,
reduce burden, and achieve improved
environmental results at less cost for
regulatory authorities and the regulated
community.

requirements in parts 122, 123, and 124
to eliminate redundant regulations,
provide clarification, and remove or
streamline unnecessary procedures.
Revisions under consideration in this
rule include adding additional permit
modifications that can be considered
minor modifications at 122.63, and
changes to requirements concerning
EPA's review of State permits. Other
revisions may be considered as work
on this rule progresses. This
rulemaking is expected to affect entities
which implement the NPDES program
or are regulated by it. This includes
small businesses and State, tribal and
local governments. Most of these effects
are expected to be deregulatory or
streamlining in nature.

 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 141; 40 CFR 143
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: The 1996 Safe Drinking
 Water Act (SDWA) Amendments
 require EPA to review new analytical
 methods that may be used for regulated
 contaminants screening or analysis,
 including screening methods. After this
 review, EPA may approve such
 methods that are deemed more accurate
 or cost-effective than established
 reference methods for use in
 compliance monitoring or the
 monitoring of unregulated
 contaminants. In this advanced notice
 of proposed rulemaking, EPA
 announces its intention to integrate the
 use of screening methods in the overall
 scheme of drinking water compliance
 monitoring. Efforts will be made to
 keep the proposal consistent with the
 Office of Water plan for Performance-
Based Methods (PBMs). EPA will
identify regulated contaminants, types
                   of monitoring and specific areas within
                   each monitoring framework which are
                   amenable to the use of screening
                   methods. A logical application of
                   screening procedures would be in a
                   tiered monitoring mode where Tier 1
                   (screening phase) would identify the
                   principal problem areas while Tier 2
                   would use sampling and analysis to
                   more carefully identify and quantify
                   specific contaminants. EPA would
                   identify specific screening methods
                   which are available for use based on
                   their performance characteristics,
                   tolerance to sample interferences,
                   validation for drinking water analysis
                   and correlation of results with
                   traditional instrumental methods. The
                   use of screening methods is expected
                   to make drinking water compliance
                   monitoring cheaper and faster, and
                  provide flexibility to the Public Water
                   Systems in the choice of analytical
                  methods. Laboratory acceptance limits
                  and other method performance
                  requirements that were specified under
                  previous rules will not be changed in
                  this rulemaking. The final action would
                  only add new analytical methods
                  and/or analytical approaches and
                  would not withdraw or modify
                  previously approved methods.

August 6, 2001, Final Regulatory
Determination.
Abstract: The 1996 amendments to the
Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA)
requires EPA to publish a list of
nonregulated contaminants every five
years, which may warrant regulation
due to their health effects and their
potential for occurrence in public water
systems (PWSs). The first list, called
the Contaminant Candidate List (CCL),
was published in the Federal Register
on March 2, 1998 (63 FR 10274). When
establishing the 1998 CCL, EPA divided
the contaminants among three main
categories: (1) contaminants which are
priorities for additional research; (2)
contaminants which need additional
occurrence data; and (3)  contaminants
which are priorities for consideration
for rulemaking. These contaminants are
collectively referred to as the
Regulatory Determination Priority
contaminants. In addition to publishing
the drinking water CCL,  the SDWA also
requires the Agency to select five or
more contaminants from the CCL and
determine, by August 2001, whether to
regulate these contaminants with a
National Primary Drinking Water
Regulation (NPDWR). The Regulatory
Determination Priority category is the
list of contaminants from which the
Agency will determine whether or not
regulations are necessary. There are
currently nine contaminants that have
sufficient scientific information to make
regulatory determinations:
Acanthamoeba; Aldrin; Dieldrin;
Hexachlorobutadiene; Manganese;
Metribuzin; Naphthalene; Sodium; and
Sulfate. In order to make a decision
whether or not to develop a NPDWR
for a contaminant, the SDWA requires
three statutory tests be met: (1) the
contaminant may have an adverse effect
on the health of persons; (2) the
contaminant is known to occur or there
is a substantial likelihood that the
contaminant will occur in public water
systems with a frequency and at levels
of public health concern; and (3) in the
sole judgment of the Administrator,
regulation of the contaminant presents
a meaningful opportunity for health
risk reduction for persons served by
public water systems. Using these three
statutory tests to make regulatory
decisions, there are three possible
outcomes: (1) regulate the contaminant
with a NPDWR; (2) develop guidance
(e.g., Health or Consumer Advisory); or
(3) determine no action is necessary.

 monitoring of 120 large and 180 small
 public water systems from January 1,
 2003 through December 31, 2003. Only
 these 300 systems must monitor for
 Aeromonas. Additionally, EPA
 proposes to approve EPA Method 515.4
 to support previously required National
 Primary Drinking Water Regulation
 (NPDWR) compliance monitoring for
 2,4-D (as acid, salts and esters), 2,4,5-
 TP (Silvex), dinoseb,
 pentachlorophenol, picloram and
 dalapon, and EPA Method 531.2 to
 support previously required NPDWR
 monitoring for carbofuran and oxamyl.
 Finally, EPA proposed to approve eight
 additional industry developed
 analytical methods to support
 previously required NPDWR
 compliance monitoring. These eight
 methods include: a method for the
 determination of atrazine, two methods
 for the determination of cyanide, three
 methods for the determination of total
 coliforms, a method for the
 determination of heterotrophic bacteria
 and a method for the determination of
 turbidity.

 Abstract: The Long Term 2 Enhanced
 Surface Water Treatment Rule
 (LT2ESWTR) will control risk from
 microbial pathogens in drinking water.
 It is being developed simultaneously
 with the Stage 2 Disinfectants and
 Disinfection Byproducts Rule (DBPR)
 which will address risk caused by the
 use of disinfectants in drinking water.
 This rule could affect all public water
 systems that use surface water as a
 source. Promulgating the LT2ESWTR
 and the Stage 2 DBPR as a paired
 rulemaking is necessary to ensure that
 adequate protection from microbial risk
 is maintained while EPA manages risk
 from disinfection byproducts. In
 developing the LT2ESWTR, EPA will
analyze a significant body of new
survey data on microbial pathogens in
                    source and finished waters, as well as
                    data on parameters which could serve
                    as indicators of microbial risk. This
                    survey data, which was collected under
                    the Information Collection Rule (ICR),
                    Supplemental Surveys to the ICR, and
                    additional research projects, will
                    provide a substantially more
                    comprehensive and complete picture of
                    the occurrence of waterborne pathogens
                    than was available previously. EPA will
                    also use significant new data on the
                    efficiency of treatment processes for the
                    removal and inactivation of
                    microorganisms, as well as new
                    information on the pathogenicity of
                    certain pathogens, to determine
                    effective regulatory requirements for
                    controlling microbial risk. On March
                    30, 1999, EPA established a committee
                    of stakeholders under the Federal
                    Advisory Committee Act (FACA) to
                    assist in the development of these rules
                    and an agreement in principle was
                    signed in September 2000 outlining the
                    proposed rule options.

  Abstract: This Regulation, along with
  a Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water
  Treatment Rule (LT2ESWTR) that will
  be promulgated simultaneously, is
  intended to expand existing public
  health protections and jaddress
  concerns about risk trade-offs between
  pathogens and disinfection byproducts.
  This rule could affect all public water
  systems that add a disinfectant to the
  drinking water during any part of the
 treatment process although the impacts
 may be limited to community water
 systems (CWSs) and non-transient non-
 community water systems (NTNCWSs).
 Promulgating the LT2ESWTR and the
 Stage 2 DBPR as a paired rulemaking
 is necessary to ensure that adequate
 protection from microbial risk is
 maintained while EPA manages risk
 from disinfection byproducts. In
 developing the Stage 2 DBPR, EPA will
 analyze a significant body of new
 survey data on source water quality
 parameters, treatment data and
 disinfection byproduct occurrence. This
 survey data, which was ;collected under
 the Information Collection Rule (ICR),
 Supplemental Surveys to the ICR, and
 additional research projects, will
 provide a substantially more
 comprehensive and complete picture of
 the occurrence of DBFs and
 microbiological pathogens than was
 available previously. EPA will also use
 new information on the  health  effects
 of exposure to DBFs to determine
 effective regulatory requirements for
 controlling risk. On March 30, '.1999,
EPA reconvened a comriiittee of
stakeholders under the Federal
Advisory Committee Act (FACA) to
assist in the development of these
rules, and an Agreement in Principle

Abstract: EPA has proposed a targeted
risk-based regulatory strategy for all
public water systems served by ground
water. The proposed requirements
provide a meaningful opportunity to
reduce public health risk associated
with the consumption of -waterborne
pathogens from fecal contamination for
a substantial number of people served
by ground water sources. The proposed
strategy addresses risks through a
multiple-barrier approach that relies on
five major components: periodic
sanitary surveys of ground water
systems requiring the evaluation of
eight elements and the identification of
significant deficiencies; hydrogeologic
assessments to identify wells sensitive
to fecal contamination; source water
monitoring for systems drawing from
sensitive wells without treatment or
with other indications of risk; a
requirement for correction of significant
deficiencies and fecal contamination
through the following actions: eliminate
the source of contamination, correct the
significant deficiency, provide an
alternative source water, or  provide a
treatment  which achieves at least 99.99
 percent (4-log) inactivation or removal
 of viruses, and compliance monitoring
 to insure disinfection treatment is
 reliably operated where it is used.

CFR Citation: Not Yet Determined
Legal Deadline: Other, Statutory,
August 6, 2002, Complete review for
contaminants with NPDWRs
promulgated prior to August 1996.
Abstract: The Safe Drinking Water Act
(SDWA) requires EPA to review and
revise, if appropriate, all National
Primary Drinking Water Regulations
(NPDWRs) no less frequently than once
every six years. According to SDWA,
any revisions of drinking water
regulations must maintain, or increase,
the level of public health protection
provided; however, EPA may identify
regulatory changes that will streamline
or reduce existing requirements without
lessening the level of public health
protection. As a part of this action, EPA
will do two  things:  (1) develop an
overall protocol for conducting each six
year review; and (2) review 69
NPDWRs  published prior to 1996. The
remaining NPDWRs published prior to
1996 (e.g., arsenic, radionuclides, most
microbiological NPDWRs) have been, or
are being, reviewed in the context of
recent or ongoing rulemakings. No new
- requirements will be imposed by .this
action. The  purpose of the review is
to determine whether new data,
technology,  or other factors exist that
justify revisions to existing NPDWRs.
The outcome of each review will be

Abstract: The Safe Drinking Water Act
(SDWA) requires EPA to protect current
and future underground sources of
drinking water (USDWs) from the
endangerment posed by Class V
                    underground injection control (UIC)
                    wells. Class V UIC wells are typically
                    shallow waste disposal systems that are
                    diverse in purpose, design, geographic
                    distribution, the nature of the fluids
                    injected, and endangerment potential.
                    In accordance with the judicial
                    deadlines in a consent agreement, EPA
                    finalized specific regulations  addressing
                    two types of high-risk UIC Class V
                    injection wells (motor vehicle waste
                    disposal wells and large-capacity
                    cesspools) in December 1999. That
                    regulatory action is informally referred
                    to as the UIC Class V Phase 1 Rule.
                    Also, in accordance with the consent
                    agreement, on May 7, 2001, EPA
                    published a proposed determination
                    that existing Federal regulation of Class
                    V wells is adequate to protect drinking
                    water supplies, and that additional
                    Federal UIC regulations are not needed
                    at this time to prevent Class V wells
                    from endangering underground sources
                    of drinking water. EPA has evaluated
                    the public comment received on the
                    proposed determination and will
                    publish a final determination by May

  Abstract: As part of a settlement
  agreement, EPA agreed to make specific
  changes to  the health ;effects language,
  in the Public Notification and
  Consumer Confidence Report Rules,
  concerning di(2-ethylhexyl)adipate
  (DEHA) and di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate
  (DEHP). With respect ,to DEHA, the
  proposed new wordirig would replace
  a reference to general toxic effects with
  specific toxic effects Wording (i.e.,
  weight loss and liver enlargement) and
  add the word possible, to the reference
 to reproductive  effects. With respect to
 DEHP, the proposed revision would
 add the word well in front of the
 phrase  in excess of the MCL to describe
 when the health effects may be
 experienced. In  additipn, this proposal
 would include a negotiated paragraph
 on the proper use of the Agency's
 Integrated Risk Information System
 (IRIS). EPA is also making the
 following minor changes to the
 Consumer Confidence ;Report Rule:
 removing leaching from wood
 preservatives as  a likely source for
 copper contamination;  revising
 Appendix A to move some disinfection
 byproducts contaminants from the
 volatile organic contaminants  section to
 the inorganic contaminants section; and
 revising Appendix A to change chloride
 dioxide to chlorine dioxide.

Abstract: EPA proposed regulations for
radon in drinking water that would
provide flexibility in how to manage
the health risks from radon, in both
drinking water and in indoor air. States
and systems would be able to focus
their efforts on the highest radon risks
to the public - in indoor air - •while
reducing the highest risks from radon
in drinking water. The proposal was
based on the unique framework in  the
1996 Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA].
The proposed regulation would provide
two options to States  and water systems
for reducing public health risks from
radon. Under the first option, States
may choose to develop enhanced State
programs to address the health risks
from indoor radon while water systems
reduce radon levels in drinking water
to at or below the higher, alternative
maximum contaminant level MCL
proposed at 4,000 pCi/L  (picoCuries per
liter, a standard unit of radiation). EPA
is encouraging the States to adopt this
approach as the most cost-effective way
to achieve the greatest radon risk
reduction. If a State does not elect  this
option, the second option would
require water systems in that State  to
either reduce radon in drinking water
levels to  the MCL of 300 pCi/L, or  to
develop a local indoor radon program
and reduce levels in drinking water to
4000 pCi/L.

Abstract: The Office of Water will
revise the National Primary Drinking
Water Regulations to require public
water systems and States to report
regulated drinking water contaminant
occurrence level data to EPA. At
present, States only report violation
data for the purpose of compliance
tracking, as concentrations that exceed
the Maximum Contaminant Level. The
data will be compared to health effects
levels and used to compare occurrence
frequency with monitoring
requirements. The results of these
analyses may be used to modify
existing regulations during the
statutorily required 6-year regulatory
review cycle.

  (NSDWR): METHYL TERTIARY BUTYL
  ETHER (MTBE) AND TECHNICAL
  CORRECTIONS TO THE NSDWR
 Priority: Other Significant
 Legal Authority: 42 USC 300f et seq
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 143 (Revision)
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: Methyl tertiary butyl ether
 (MTBE) is a fuel additive used
 primarily to increase the oxygen
 content in gasoline. It has been used
 in increasing quantity in the 1990s to
 meet the requirements of the Federal
 Reformulated Gasoline (RFC) and
 Oxyfuels programs required by the
 Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990.
 Although the use of MTBE in gasoline
 has helped to reduce harmful air
 emissions, it is being detected in
 ground water and surface water
 throughout the country. In some
 instances the affected waters are
 drinking water sources. At relatively
 low levels, MTBE's taste and odor can
 make drinking water supplies
                    unacceptable to consumers. In this
                    action, EPA is proposing a secondary
                    standard for MTBE, which would
                    provide guidance for taste and odor
                    acceptability and protect the public
                    welfare.

                   Abstract: EPA provides a place in part
                   147 of its UIC regulations where all the
                   State UIC programs are summarized.
                   Included in this summarization are all
                   the authorities and regulations used by
                   the States to implement the UIC
                   program, as well as all other documents
                   that are relevant to the program. The
                   primary reason for this is to provide
  one place where all the UIC programs
  nationwide are presented. A second
  reason, more importantly, is to allow
  EPA to incorporate by reference into
  the Code of Federal Regulations the
  State program authorities. Current
  citations to State regulations in 40 CFR
  part 147 are out of date for many
  States. This update is [necessary to
  ensure that the CFR accurately reflects
  current approved State UIC programs
  and that elements of those programs are
  federally enforceable if necessary. EPA
  Regional Offices will be submitting
  State revision package's as they are
  completed. Part 147 will then be
  updated in several stages. This is the
  first stage. This effort should have no
  impact on the regulated community
  because we will merely be
  incorporating by reference elements of
  already effective State programs.

Abstract: The Safe Drinking Water Act
(SDWA) requires EPA to establish
criteria for a program to monitor
unregulated contaminants and to
publish a list of contaminants to be
monitored. In fulfillment of this
requirement, EPA published the
Revisions to the Unregulated
Contaminant Monitoring Regulations
(UCMR) for public water systems in
September 1999. The rule identified
three lists of contaminants and
established monitoring frequencies,
schedules and data entry procedures,
including the date by which
approximately 2,800 large public water
systems would need to begin reporting
of monitoring results to EPA. This
reporting date was changed by rule in
January 2001 because the EPA database
was not ready to receive  the data. The
reporting date was again  delayed by
rule in September 2001 to allow the
initial version of the database to be
completed and tested before operation.
The database has now been in
operation since October 1, 2001, and
has been receiving data from large
water systems. Today's rule would
merely establish a new reporting date
by which data resulting from
monitoring must be reported. Reporting
requirements for all subsequent
monitoring data continue to remain as
set forth in the original September 1999
rule.

                               REGULATORY FLEXIBILITY ANALYSIS IS  REQUIRED

           The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601) requires that agencies publish regulatory agendas Identifying
       those rules that may have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Agencies
       meet that requirement by including the information in their submissions for the Unified Agenda.
           The following  index  lists  the regulatory  actions  in this publication  for  which agencies believe  that
       the Act may  require a  Regulatory Flexibility  Analysis because the  rule is  likely to have such  effects on
       small businesses,  small governmental jurisdictions, or  small organizations.  The  Sequence Number  (Seq.  No.)
       of the entry identifies the location of the entry in this edition.  For  further  information, see the  Regulatory

       C  INDEX TO ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY ENTRIES THAT MAY AFFECT
       SMALL ENTITIES WHEN A REGULATORY FLEXIBILITY ANALYSIS IS NOT REQUIRED

        The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601) requires that agencies publish regulatory agendas identifying
   those rules that may have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Agencies
   meet  that requirement by  including the  information in  their submissions  for the Unified Agenda.  Some
   agencies have chosen  to identify additional regulatory actions that may have some  impact on  small entities
   even though a Regulatory Flexibility Analysis may not be required.
        The following  index lists the regulatory  actions in  this publication for which agencies have chosen
   to  indicate that some  impact on small entities is likely even though a Regulatory  Flexibility  Analysis may
   not be  required. The  Sequence  Number  (Seq.  No.)  of the entry  identifies the  location of the entry in  this
   edition.  For further information, see the Regulatory  Information Service Center's  Introduction  to the Unified
   Agenda in part E of this issue.

        Executive Order 12866  entitled "Regulatory Planning  and Review"  (October  4,  1993; 58 FR 51735) and
   the  Unfunded  Mandates Reform Act of 1995  (P.L.  104-4)  direct agencies to  assess the  effects  of Federal
   regulations on  State,  local,  and  tribal governments. In  keeping  with  these efforts,  agencies  include  m their
   submissions for the Unified Agenda information on whether their regulatory actions have an effect on various
   levels  of government.  See  also Index  E  for  entries that may  have  "federalism  implications"  as  denned
   in Executive Order 13132 entitled "Federalism"  (August 4, 1999, 64 FR 43255).                  •
        The following  index lists  the  regulatory  actions in  this publication  that agencies believe may have
   effects  on  State,  local,  tribal, or  Federal  levels  of government. The  Sequence  Number  (Seq.  No.)  of the
   entry identifies the location  of the entry  in  this edition. For further information, see the Regulatory Information
