Semiannual Regulatory Agenda
AGENCY: Environmental Protection
Agency.
ACTION: Semiannual regulatory agenda.


SUMMARY: The regulatory agenda is a
semiannual summary of current and
projected rulemakings, reviews of
existing regulations, and completed
actions of the Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA). By providing information
about regulatory actions underway and
those that we will issue in the coming
year, we hope to encourage public
participation  in the regulatory process.
ADDRESSES: To be placed on the agenda
mailing list, either write to
USEPA/NCEPI at P.O.  Box 42419,
Cincinnati, Ohio 45242, or fax your
request to (513) 489-8695. If you need
confirmation  that your request was
received, you may call 1-800-490-9198.
  If you have suggestions to improve
this publication, comments on rules that
substantially  impact small entities, or
need general information about the
agenda, contact Angela Suber,
Regulatory Development Branch (2136),
EPA, 401 M Street SW., Washington, DC
20460, (202) 260-7205.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If
you need substantive information about
a particular entry, the name, address,
and telephone number of the agency
contact who is most familiar with the
subject matter is listed for each action.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
Regulatory Priorities and Schedules
  Last year's  Government shutdown and
reduced funding for EPA under
continuing resolutions have delayed
many of EPA's regulatory actions.
Nevertheless, EPA continues to devote
its best efforts toward  full protection of
human health and the environment and
remains fully committed to reinventing
our regulations to provide greater
environmental protection at less cost.
EPA's reinvention efforts are described
more fully in its 1996  regulatory plan,
which is published along with this
document. EPA continues to make
efforts to reduce paperwork burden, to
develop common-sense regulatory
actions, and to delete or modify
regulations currently in place. We will
also give priority to initiatives that offer
novel solutions to real environmental
problems posed by an industry or
locality when generally applicable
mandates may prove ineffective or
inefficient in a specific application.
How the Agenda Is Organized
  For this edition of EPA's regulatory
agenda, the most important significant
regulatory actions are included in The
Regulatory Plan, which appears in Part
II of this issue of the Federal Register.
The Regulatory Plan entries are listed in
the Table of Contents below and are
denoted by a bracketed bold reference,
which directs the reader to the
appropriate Sequence Number in Part II.
  Each agenda entry includes the title,
legal authority, CFR reference, legal
deadline, abstract, and timetable. Each
entry also indicates the categories of
small entities and levels of government
that may be affected by the rulemaking
and whether the Agency plans to
prepare a Regulatory Flexibility
Analysis. In addition, we indicate
whether an entry is part of the
Reinventing Government effort. Lastly,
the agenda includes an agency contact
person for each entry.
  The agenda is organized by statute
and ordered numerically within each
statute. Entries within each statute are
divided into five categories: (1) Prerule,
(2) proposed rule, (3) final rule, (4) long-
term actions (i.e., actions under
preparation that will not be published
until after the 1-year horizon for this
agenda), and (5) completed actions (i.e.,
regulations that EPA is deleting from the
agenda because the Agency has
completed, withdrawn, or postponed
them indefinitely). Detailed information
on each of these categories is presented
below. A bullet (•) preceding an entry
indicates that this is the first time an
action is appearing in the agenda.
I. Prerulemakings
  Prerulemaking actions are intended to
determine whether to initiate
rulemaking. Prerulemakings include
anything that influences or leads to
rulemaking, such as advance notices of
proposed rulemaking, significant
studies or analyses of the possible need
for regulatory action, requests for public
comment on the need for regulatory
action, or important preregulatory
policy proposals.
n. Proposed and Final Rules
  This section includes all substantial
EPA regulations that are within a year
of proposal or promulgation. The
listings, however, generally exclude (a)
specialized categories of actions (e.g.,
EPA approvals of State plans and other
actions that do not apply nationally)
and (b) routine actions (e.g., pesticide
tolerances and minor amendments to
existing rules).
  We have listed all regulations and
regulatory reviews except those
considered minor, routine, or repetitive
actions. There is no legal significance to
the inadvertent omission of an item
from the listing. The agenda shows
dates  for actions on each entry; these
dates  are estimates only and should not
be construed as an absolute Agency
commitment to act on or by the date
shown. The Administrator of EPA will
review the items contained in this
agenda over the next 6 months. Entries
in this agenda may be deleted, or new
entries added as a result of that review.
  We also seek to enhance public
participation in development of
proposed rules by potentially affected
stakeholders. We therefore invite
expressions of interest to be directed to
the contact person listed for each rule.
III. Long-Term Actions
  This section includes actions with
publication dates beyond the next 12
months. We will continue to work with
interested stakeholders to develop
regulatory information to support these
rulemakings.
IV. Completed Actions
  This section contains actions that
appeared in the previous agenda but
which we are deleting because they are
completed or are no longer under
consideration for rulemaking. 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.
Regulatory Flexibility Act
  The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA)
requires that an agency prepare a
Regulatory Flexibility Analysis for a
rule unless the Agency certifies that the
rule will not have a "significant
economic impact on a substantial
number of small entities" (i.e., small
governments, small businesses, and
small nonprofit organizations). A

             Federal Register / Vol. 61,  No. 231 / Friday, November 29, 1996 / Unified Agenda      63123
 EPA
Regulatory Flexibility Analysis must
identify the extent to which small
entities are subject to the rule's
requirements, as well as any significant
alternatives to the rule which
accomplish the objectives of applicable
statutes and which minimize any
significant economic impacts on small
entities. In the agenda, we have
identified those rules that are likely to
have any impact at all on small entities
by indicating the type(s) of small
entities that may be affected by the
rulemaking in the "Small Entities
Affected" section. The agenda also
indicates in the "Analysis" section
whether we believe the impact will be
sufficient to warrant a Regulatory
Flexibility Analysis for a particular rule.
We invite public comment regarding our
assessment of those rulemakings that
appear to be appropriate for Regulatory
Flexibility Analysis. (See "Small
Entities Index to the Environmental
Protection Agency Agenda" at the end
of this document. It lists the regulatory
actions we believe may have effects on
small businesses, small governmental
jurisdictions, or small organizations.)

  Section 610 of the RFA requires that
agencies review within 10 years of
promulgation those regulations that
have or will have a significant economic
impact on a substantial number of small
entities. A number of actions in this
edition of the agenda are the result of
EPA's line-by-line review of existing
regulations, and several propose to
analyze and, where appropriate, amend
or withdraw regulatory requirements
that we believe may impose undue
burdens on small entities. We also
invite you to identify any existing rules
for future review that you believe to
have a significant economic impact on
a substantial number of small entities.
Please provide your comments in the
following format:
• Title
• Authorizing statute and Code of
  Federal Regulations citation
 • Description of economic effects on
  small entities, especially on the
  commenting person or organization
 • Recommendations for changes

  When we complete our review of an
 existing rule, we will indicate in the
 agenda whether that rulemaking will be
 continued without change or will be
 amended or rescinded consistent with
 the stated objectives of applicable
 statutes to minimize any significant
 economic impact on a substantial
 number of small entities. Finally, this
 agenda also indicates in the "Priority"
 section whether a rulemaking may be
 considered "major" under the Small
 Business Regulatory Enforcement
 Fairness Act, which President Clinton
 signed into law on March 29,1996.

Abstract: This amendment will update
the existing data requirements (40 CFR
158) for evaluating the registerability of
pesticide products. Reasons for the
revisions include recent health and
environmental concerns (e.g.,
groundwater contamination, worker
exposure and neurotoxicity)
advancements in testing technology,
and new ecological risk testing
approaches. The revisions will clarify
all data requirements to reflect current
practice. Procedural and explanatory
sections of 40 CFR 158 will be
amended to make them consistent with
the revised data requirements and new
use indexing implemented pursuant to
1988 FIFRA amendments.

Legal Authority: 7. USC 136w
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 170
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Since the issuance of the
1992 WPS and the January 1, 1995
implementation, farmworker groups
have expressed an interest in enhancing
specific protection measures, while
grower groups, the National Association
of State Departments of Agriculture and
others have expressed an interest in
addressing practical, operational
concerns. The Agency received various
requests and comments in the form of
letters, petitions, and individual and

                   Abstract: EPA is considering revisions
                   to its pesticide export policy. EPA
                   believes that certain modifications are
                   necessary because (1) EPA's current
                   policy has resulted in too many export
                   notices on pesticides of little or no
                   concern to other governments; (2) the
                   increasing numbers of export notices
                   undermines the effectiveness of the
                   international Prior Informed Consent
                   (PIC) procedures, an international
                   information and exchange and chemical

                                                         governments, and industry, should be

 3446. • TOLERANCES FOR PESTICIDE
 EMERGENCY EXEMPTIONS
 Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
 Legal Authority: 21 USC 346a
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR Not yet
 determined
 Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,
 August 3, 1997.
 Abstract: This regulation will set out
 policies and procedures under which
 EPA will establish food tolerances
 associated with the use of pesticides
 under emergency exemptions.
 Emergency exemptions are issued for
 temporary use of pesticides in States
 where emergency conditions exist.
 Under the Federal Food, Drug and
 Cosmetic Act, as amended by the Food
 Quality Protection Act, EPA must begin
 to establish time-limited tolerances for
such pesticides if the use  is likely to
result in residues in food. EPA expects
to describe the procedures to be used,
the data that will be required, and the
criteria for establishing tolerances.

taken a number of actions to revoke
processed and raw food tolerances for
pesticide carcinogens because of the
"Delaney Clause" (section 409). On
August 3,1996, the Food Quality
Protection Act was enacted, which
removed pesticides from the coverage
of the Delaney Clause. The agency will
be taking no further actions to revoke
tolerances based upon the Delaney
Clause, and will be withdrawing these
actions previously announced which
are not yet effective.

3448. CROSS-CONTAMINATION OF
PESTICIDE PRODUCTS
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Reinventing Government: This
rulemaking is part of the Reinventing
Government effort. It will revise text in
the CFR to reduce burden or

Legal Authority: 7 USC 136a
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 158.167
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: EPA is evaluating its current
policy on allowable limits on cross-  :
contamination of pesticide products.
EPA's current policy is that  any amount
of a pesticide active ingredient in
another pesticide product must be
reported to EPA as part of the
registration process. This zero  tolerance
is a problem because  cross-
contamination is an inevitable outcome
in the manufacture of chemicals. EPA
is attempting to clarify situation in
which the producer will be required to
report cross-contamination. The
expected output of this exercise will be
clear guidance to the regulated
community as to the levels of
contamination that will be allowed for
pesticides in other pesticide products.
EPA is using a risk-based approach to
determining acceptable levels of cross-
contamination; the levels the Agency
will establish should in most cases,
protect users and the  environment from
adverse  effects. The adverse  effect that
can occur at the lowest levels in most
cases is  phytotoxicity.

Abstract: EPA will make clear that the
substances that plants produce to
protect themselves against pests and
disease are pesticides under FIFRA.
The Agency designates these substances
along with the genetic material
necessary to produce them, as plant-
pesticides. The Agency will clarify that
the focus of EPA's regulation will be
on these substances rather than on the
plants that produce the pesticidal
substance. The Agency will define the
categories  of plant-pesticides that
would be regulated and those that
would be exempt under FIFRA and
FFDCA. For those plant-pesticides that
would be subject to Agency
requirements, the Agency will outline
the process by which these pesticides
will be regulated and the information
that would be needed in the Agency's
review.

                     definition, unreasonable risk includes
                     risk and benefit information. In 1992
                     EPA proposed to revise its 1979

                   Abstract: The Scope and Clarification
                   of the WPS Exceptions Process will
                   involve an analysis of the existing
                                    scope of the WPS exceptions process,
                                    an opportunity for public comment on
                                    the analysis, and consideration of
                                    whether the scope should be expanded.
                                    In addition, guidance will be issued to
                                    clarify the types of information needed
                                    for each individual exception request
                                    in order for the Agency to be able to
                                    make a risk/benefit decision.

Abstract: Isopropyl alcohol (IPA) itself
does not meet the toxicity criteria for
listing on the Toxic Release Inventory
(TRI). It is the strong acid process itself
which is associated with an increased
cancer incidence. The proposed action
would remove IPA from the list of
chemicals for which reporting is
required under the Emergency Planning
and Community Right-to-Know Act
(EPCRA) section 313. Because IPA is
not manufactured by the strong-acid
process and thus there are no releases
of IPA reportable under section 313,
deletion of IPA from the list would
eliminate erroneous IPA reports.

THE DISPOSAL OF LEAD-BASED
PAINT ABATEMENT WASTE

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

                                     TSCA regulations would establish
                                     appropriate disposal standards for LBP
                                     architectural components and identify

 EPA—TSCA
                                                   Proposed  Rule Stage
 Abstract: As a follow-up to the final
 Biotechnology rule under the Toxic
 Substances Control Act (TSCA), EPA
 plans to address the following possible
 revisions: 1) Intergeneric Scope of
 Oversight: OPPT currently defines new
 microorganisms  which are subject to
 reporting under TSCA section 5 as
 those resulting from the deliberate
 combination of genetic material
 originally isolated from microorganisms
 classified in different taxonomic genera.
 Such microorganisms are referred to as
 intergeneric microorganisms. EPA
 recognizes that a regulatory approach
 based on taxonomy may have some
 limitations, and indicated in its 1994
 proposed biotechnology regulations that
 it may reconsider its interpretation of
 —new— microorganism in a later
 rulemaking. The majority of
 commenters on the proposed rule
 expressed some level of support for the
 intergeneric scope of oversight, albeit
 while encouraging EPA to make some
 modifications. 2) Low Risk Alternative:
 In the 1994 proposed biotechnology
 rule, EPA solicited comment on an
 alternative approach to oversight  of
 research and development activities
 conducted in the environment.  Under
 this alternative, a researcher could
 certify that a microorganism intended
 to be used in an  environmental field
 trial met certain low risk criteria.  This
 alternative contained requirements for
 documentation and recordkeeping by a
 Technically Qualified Individual and
 certification by an authorized official.
 OPPT now plans to provide an
 opportunity to comment on new
 information which OPPT believes may
 support such an exemption. 3)
 Inventory Delisting Rule: In 1978, when
 EPA compiled its initial TSCA
 Inventory, 192 microorganisms were
 reported and are  currently listed on the
 Inventory. EPA believes that most, if
 not all, of the 192 microorganisms
 would not be considered new under the
 new rule, since the listing appear to
 describe microorganisms which are not
 intergeneric. (Abstract Continues - see

 Additional Information: SAN No. 3894.

 (Abstract Continued) In the 1994
 proposed rule, EPA provided an
 opportunity for manufacturers and
 importers of any of the 192
 microorganisms to inform EPA whether
 any of the microorganisms were
 intergeneric.'EPA received no
 information during the public comment
 period concerning any of the 192
 microorganisms. Accordingly, as stated
 in the proposed rule, EPA will publish
 a rule removing the 192
 microorganisms from the TSCA
 Inventory, on the grounds that the
 microorganisms are not new and are
 consequently considered to be
 implicitly included on the Inventory
 without the need for an explicit listing.

 potential threat to health. This involves
 identifying data gaps and needs, and
 developing a testing program to meet
 identified  needs.  ATSDR's data needs
 were reviewed by NTP and EPA to
 avoid duplicative testing. Other Federal
 agencies were given an opportunity to
 indicate their interest in testing specific

Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 15 USC 2603/TSCA 4
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 799.5050
Legal Deadline:  None
Abstract: A multi-chemical endpoint
test rule will require the testing of
many chemicals  for a specific effect or
endpoint, e.g., neurotoxicity. This type
of rule is an alternative to single
chemical rules which require testing of
one chemical for many effects. The
multi-chemical endpoint rule approach
will obtain a significant amount  of
testing while conserving Agency
resources. The multi-chemical rule for
developmental and reproductive
toxicity testing will require testing of
twelve chemicals for developmental
and/or reproductive-effects; the multi-
chemical rule neurotoxicity testing will
obtain base set neurotoxicity testing of
certain production solvents. These rules
may be amended in the future to
require the same testing for other
chemicals. Also,  future multi-chemical
rules will require testing of additional
endpoints and chemicals. The testing
requirements for each chemical in a
multi-chemical rule  will be listed in a
single table by chemical under section
799.5050. This table will be amended
with each publication of a new multi-

 bioaccumulators ). They are an
 alternative to single chemical rules
 which require testing of one chemical
 for many effects. A multi-chemical
 endpoint rule for chemical fate and
 environmental effects will include
 chemicals that EPA expects will persist
 and bioaccumulate in the environment.
 In the past, chemicals such as dioxins,
 dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, and
 the polychlorinated biphenyls that
 persist (do not degrade), bioaccumulate
 (may enter the human food chain), and
 may be toxic have created widespread
 environmental concerns. EPA is
 evaluating chemicals on the Toxic
 Substances Control Act (TSCA)
 inventory for these characteristics and
 will identify chemicals for chemical
 fate and environmental effects testing
 for additional evaluation of their
 potential risks.

                   Abstract: This action will amend the
                   testing consent order and test rule
                   development process to increase
                   efficiency. The consent order process
                   was adopted by the Agency in June
                   1986. Based on experience to date, the
                   Agency needs to make changes in the
                   process to reduce the resources
                   required for consent order negotiation.
                   This rule would propose appropriate
                   procedural changes. Obsolete
                   provisions will be eliminated for test
                   rule development activities.

3484. • LEAD FEE RULE FOR LEAD-
BASED PAINT ACTIVITIES TRAINING
AND CERTIFICATION
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: PL 102-550; TSCA
404; Title IV of TSCA
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 745
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract:  This rule is mandated by
section 402(a) of the Toxic Substances
Control Act (TSCA) for the purpose of
implementing a fee schedule for lead-
based paint activities that were
addressed in the TSCA section 402
rule, 40 CFR Part 745 "Lead;
Requirements for Lead-Based Paint
Activities in Target Housing and Child-
Occupied Facilities, " which published
on August 28, 1996. The fee schedule
will establish a framework for states to
process applications for training
providers  of lead-Based paint training
courses and for certification of workers
engaged in lead-based paint activities
in the five disciplines delineated in the
section 402 rule.
The fee rule in concert with the section
402 rule is intended to  ensure that
individuals conducting lead-based
paint inspections, risk assessments and
abatement in target housing and child-
occupied facilities are properly trained
and certified, and that training
programs providing instruction in such
activities are accredited. This rule is
also intended to ensure that these
activities are conducted according to
reliable, effective and safe work
practice standards and to provide the
availability of a trained and qualified
workforce to identify and address lead-
based paint hazards. By promoting the
establishment of this workforce the
Agency will help to ensure that
individuals and firms conducting lead-
based paint activities in target housing
and child-occupied facilities will do so
                                                          in a way that safeguards the
                                                          environment and protects the health of
                                                          building occupants, especially children
                                                          aged six years and younger.
                                                          Regarding the  anticipated impact on
                                                          small business, section 402(a) does not
                                                          require or mandate the abatement of
                                                          lead-based paint, nor require that any
                                                          particular enterprise participate in the
                                                          lead-based paint field. However, if
                                                          firms choose to participate, compliance
                                                          costs consist of two components that
                                                          may impact small businesses: (1)
                                                          accreditation and training costs for
                                                          workers and supervisors, as well as
                                                          certification fees that this rule will
                                                          establish, and  (2) incremental costs of

Abstract: EPA has instituted a program
to regulate the commercial

have completed premanufacture notice
(PMN) review, where activities
described in the PMN did not present
an unreasonable risk but uncontrolled
manufacture, import, processing,
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 3-4 times per year. Chemicals
that  were subject to a proposed SNUR
before the effective date of the EFUR
or do not qualify under the EFUR,  may
be regulated individually by notice and
comment rulemaking and are listed
below.

3492. CHEMICAL-SPECIFIC
SIGNIFICANT NEW USE RULES
(SNURS) TO EXTEND PROVISIONS OF
SECTION 5(E) ORDERS

Priority: Routine and Frequent

Legal Authority: 15 USC 2604/TSCA 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 notice
(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.

 90 days in advance of the initiation of
 manufacture or processing for a
 significant new use. The significant
 new use rule will apply to a subset of
 acrylates added to the inventory after
 the effective date of the rule. It will
 no longer be necessary to issue routine
 5(e) orders  or chemical specific SNURs
 for those acrylates covered by the rule.

Abstract: After analyzing the comments
received in response to an ANPRM
issued in 1991, EPA issued a proposed
rule on December 6,1994 to address
alternative disposal methods for newly
identified scenarios such as large
volume solids; mixed wastes such as
PCB/radioactive xvastes; and other
issues, such as disposal of household
wastes, small capacitors, and used
paints. The notice also solicited
comments on a modification to the
disposal regulations which would allow
for the recognition of PCB waste
management activities under other
Federal or State authorities and the
transboundary movement of PCB
wastes. Roughly 270 sets of comments
were received in response to the
NPRM, a final rule will be drafted
promulgating more than 50 changes,
additions and deletions to the current
regulations. Finally, the rule
incorporated a reproposal of the April
6,1990 proposed rule (55 FR 12866),
which intended to clarify questions on
whether the analysis of PCBs is to be
conducted on a dry weight basis.

the current reclassification
requirements of 50 degree centigrade
temperature and 90-day testing. Results
of a preliminary analysis indicate that
many transformers never reach the

          Abstract: The TSCA section 8(e) Notice
          of Clarification and Solicitation of
          Public Comment would amend certain
          aspects of the  1978  TSCA section 8(e)
          Statement of Interpretation and
          Enforcement Policy (1978 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; refined reporting
          guidance on emergency incidents of
          environmental contamination will be
          developed, as appropriate, by the Office
          of Solid Waste and Emergency
         Response. Finally, the notice solicited
         comments on changes to the section
         8(e) reporting deadline, and reaffirmed
         the standards for claims of
confidentiality for information
contained in a notice of substantial risk
under section 8(e).

                                     Abstract: EPA is developing a list of
                                     substances that are or have been subject
                                     to TSCA section 4 testing actions which
                                     required testing under rules or
                                     Enforceable Consent Orders. EPA will
                                     identify sunset, or termination dates
                                     that will identify:
                                     (1) The end of section 4 reporting
                                     requirements (40 CFR 790)
                                     (2) The end of the reimbursement
                                     period under which persons subject to
                                     test rules are subject to an obligation
                                     to reimburse test sponsors (40 CFR 791)
                                     (3) The end of the period during which
                                     export notification requirements under

 63154      Federal  Register / Vol. 61, No.  231 / Friday, November 29, 1996  / Unified Agenda
 EPA—TSCA
                                                     Long-Term Actions
 Legal Authority: 15 USC 2603; 2611;
 2625

 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 799

 Legal Deadline: None

 Abstract: This action is expected to
 obtain data that EPA believes is
 necessary to more fully evaluate the
 risks of certain metals. The Agency of
 Toxic Substances and Disease Registry
 (ATSDR) identified the need for data
 in toxicological profiles for the metals
 including berylium, chromium,
 manganese, mercury, nickel, and
 selenium. The Comprehensive
 Environmental Response,
 Compensation and Liability Act
 (CERCLA), as amended by SARA (42
 USC 9604(1)), requires ATSDR: (1)
 jointly with the EPA, to develop and
 prioritize a list of hazardous substances
 found at National Priority List (NPL)
 sites; (2) prepare toxicological profiles
 for these substances; and (3) assure the
 initiation of a research program to
 address identified data needs associated
 with the substances.

 The metals listed here, including
 cadmium, are also hazardous air
 pollutants (HAPs) under the Clean Air
 Act (CAA) section 112. EPA would
 therefore also use the data from this
 action to implement several provisions
 of section 112 of the CAA, including
 the determination of risks remaining
 after the application of technology
 based on the standards under section
 112(d) of the CAA,  estimation of the
 risks associated with accidental
 releases, and the determination whether
 or not substances should be  removed
 from the CAA section (b)(l)  list of
 HAPs (delisting).

 Additional users of the data  from this
 action include EPA's Office of Water,
 Hazardous Waste Program under the
 Resource Conservation and Recovery
 Act (RCRA), the Toxic Release
 Inventory (TRI), the Integrated Risk
 Information System (IRIS), Office of
 Pesticide Programs, the National
 Toxicology Program, the National
 Institute of Occupational Safety and
 Health (NIOSH), the Mine Safety and
 Health Administration (MSHA), and
 State and local environmental
authorities. Because different "species"
 of metal can have dramatically different
toxicological effects on biological
systems, it will be important to select
the appropriate "species" for study.

REGULATION—REVISION
Priority: Other Significant

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 131
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Water quality standards set
by States and Indian Tribes establish
the water quality goals for surface
waters of the U.S. and the means by
which attainment of these goals will be
measured and assured. They are the
foundation for protecting water quality
and related public health and welfare
and the ecological health of the nation's
waters. Water quality standards
regulations govern the development,
review and revision of water quality
standards under section 303 of the
Clean Water Act by States and Indian
Tribes and the review and approval of
those standards by EPA. The ANPRM
is a comprehensive review of the water
quality standards regulation designed to
determine what changes to the
regulation should be made to reflect the
experience gained in the program by
EPA, States, Tribes, and interested
parties. All major components of the
Water Quality Standards Program will
be reviewed for potential regulatory
and implementation improvements to
provide increased flexibility where
appropriate and further strengthen the
Standards Program through use of
scientific advances as a key element of
watershed-based water quality
protection and management. Issues to
be addressed include: establishing and
revising waterbody use designations,
development and implementation of
water quality criteria including
biological and sediment quality criteria,
antidegradation policies and
procedures, general policies such as
mixing zone, variance and compliance
schedule policies, and EPA's policy of
independent application of criteria
methods.

3519. • UNIFORM NATIONAL
DISCHARGE STANDARDS FOR
ARMED FORCES VESSELS

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

Legal Authority: Clean Water Act
section 312(n) as amended
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 140
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,
February 10, 1998.
Abstract: The 1996 Defense
Authorization Act authorizes EPA and
the Navy, in consultation with other
Federal agencies and affected States, to
develop Uniform National Discharge
Standards (UNDS) for liquid discharges
from armed forces vessels. These
regulations will enable the Navy to
design vessels to one protective
uniform standard, instead of attempting
to conform to diverse State standards.

 EPA—CWA
                                                   Proposed  Rule Stage
 Promulgation, of uniform standards may
 result in innovative waste management
 technologies that can be transferred to
 the private sector. The first phase of
 the legislation requires promulgation of
 joint regulations that signify which
 discharges require regulation, which
 entail the use of marine pollution
 control devices, as well as those which
 will not require regulation. Marine
 pollution control devices may be a
 piece of equipment designed to control
 a particular waste stream, or a
 management practice that would reduce
 the impacts of a discharge. The Navy
 and EPA will determine the nature and
 environmental effects of vessel
 discharges, as well as the practicability
 of installing marine pollution control
 devises for those discharges that require
 regulation. This regulation only applies
 to vessels of the armed forces, and
 therefore will have no impact on small
 businesses. State governments will be
 involved in the rulemaking process as
 this rule may impact State standards,
 if any exist, by taking precedence over
 those standards for vessels of the armed
 forces. The uniform national standards
 proposed by this action will regulate
 those liquid vessel discharges that
 would have adverse impacts on the
 marine environment. If there is new
 information that suggests the standard
 should be changed, a State may petition
 for review any standard promulgated
 under this action.

 Abstract: This rulemaking proposes a
 new acute aquatic life criterion for
 selenium in the final Water Quality
 Guidance for the Great Lakes System
 (the Guidance) that was published on
 March 23, 1995 (60 FR 15366). The
 proposal takes into account data
 showing that selenium's two most
 prevalent oxidation states, selenite and
 selenate, present differing potentials for
 aquatic toxicity,  as well as new data
 indicating that all forms of selenium
 are additive. The new approach
 produces a different selenium acute
 criterion (also called the Criterion
 Maximum Concentration, or CMC)
 depending upon the relative
 proportions of selenite, selenate, and
 other forms of selenium that are
 present.

 Abstract: Several municipal entities
 and one industry in California sued the
 California State Water Resources
 Control Board (SWRCB) in State court
 over whether the SWRCB's water
 quality control plans for inland surface
waters and enclosed bays and estuaries
were adopted in compliance with
 authorizing State law. The  court issued
its final decision in March 1994; the
Court agreed with the plaintiffs and
 found that the plans could not remain
in effect. The SWRCB was ordered to
rescind its plans which contain the
State's numeric criteria for priority
                   toxic pollutants. In the absence of State
                   criteria, the Clean Water Act requires
                   the Administrator to promulgate water
                   quality criteria for priority toxic .
                   pollutants where the discharge of such
                   pollutants could reasonably interfere

SEWAGE SLUDGE MANAGEMENT
REGULATIONS
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

101
CFR Citation: 40 CFR123; 40 CFR 501
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The requirements for States
seeking authorization of their sewage
sludge programs are set out at 40 CFR
parts 123 (for National Pollutant
Discharge Elimination System (NPDES)
programs) and 501 (for non-NPDES
programs). These requirements were
modeled on the NPDES requirements
for authorization of wastewater effluent
discharge programs. Many States
manage sewage sludge through their
solid waste programs, which are often
structured differently from NPDES
programs. As a result, States may not
always be able to meet all the
requirements of parts 123 or 501. The
Agency wants States with well-run
sewage sludge management programs to
be eligible for authorization without
having to make unnecessary
administrative changes to their
programs. Proposed changes would
streamline the existing regulations to
ease the authorization process for States
and ensure that decisions are made
based on true environmental and public
health considerations.

                  Abstract: EPA is proposing an
                  amendment to the regulations
                  contained in 40  CFR Part 125, Subpart
                  G. These regulations implement Section
                  301(h) of the Clean Water Act, 33 USC
                  Section 1311(h). Section 301(h)
                  provides publicly owned treatment
                  works (POTWs)  discharging to marine
                  waters an opportunity to obtain a
                  modification of secondary treatment
                  requirements if they demonstrate to
                  EPA that they comply with a number
                  of criteria aimed at protecting the
                  marine environment. This proposal is
                                                        designed to streamline the renewal
                                                        process for POTWs with 301(h)
                                                        modified permits. The action would
                                                        eliminate unnecessary paperwork. It
                                                        specifies that a completed application
                                                        would not be required for renewals in
                                                        cases where EPA already has the
                                                        required information. Additional
                                                        information would only be required as
                                                        necessary to determine ongoing
                                                        compliance with the 301(h) criteria.
                                                        This regulation should reduce
                                                        paperwork submissions from
                                                        municipalities, which should save time

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 CWA. Water quality-based
permits are necessary when technology-
based controls do not allow a particular
water body to meet the state's
designated water quality standard.
Since the methods currently approved
under 40 CFR Part 136 were designed
to meet technology-based permitting
needs, and since 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.
This action will not have a significant
economic impact on state, local, or
tribal governments or small businesses.
This regulation would approve a test
procedure to be used in measuring
trace metals under the National
Pollution Discharge Elimination System
unless the Regional Administrator
approves an alternative procedure.

3535.  GUIDELINES ESTABLISHING
TEST PROCEDURES FOR THE
ANALYSIS OF CYANIDE UNDER THE
CLEAN WATER ACT
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 33 USC 1314(h)/CWA
304(h); 33 USC 1361(a)/CWA 501(a)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 136; 40 CFR
122.21; 40 CFR 122.41; 40 CFR 122.44;
40 CFR 123.25
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This regulatory action would
amend the Guidelines Establishing Test
Procedures for the Analysis of
Pollutants under 40 CFR Part 136 to
approve new procedures for the
analysis of cyanide under the Clean
Water Act.

Total cyanide is a toxic (priority)
pollutant as defined in the Clean Water
Act and listed at 40 CFR 423, Appendix
A. The term "total cyanide" refers to
all forms of cyanide, including those
forms that are readily bioavailable such
as free and weakly bound cyanide and
those forms that are less bioavailable
because the cyanide is strongly bound
to a metal ion. Method 335.1, Cyanides
Amenable to Chlorination (CATC), is
currently approved for the
measurement of free and weakly
complexed forms of cyanides. Methods
335.2 and 335.3 are currently approved
for measurement of total cyanides.

Subsequent to approval of Methods
335.1 and 335.3 under 40 CFR Part 136,
new data suggests that these methods
may not accurately reflect actual
cyanide concentrations found in
waste waters. Additionally, the
approved analytical methods call for
hour-long distillation, chlorination
requiring an hour, and two separate
aliquots of a given sample distilled and
analyzed independently to determine
the CATC levels. In order to improve
the accuracy and reduce the costs of
cyanide measurements, EPA plans to
develop and propose new test
procedures for the determination of
cyanides.

This action will not have a significant
economic impact on state, local or
tribal governments or small businesses.
This regulation approves a test
procedure to be used in measuring
cyanide under the National Pollution
Discharge Elimination System unless
the Regional Administrator approves an
alternative test procedure.

Abstract: This regulatory action would
highlight the flexibility already
contained in the 600 and 1600 series
methods  that are currently approved for
Clean Water Act compliance
monitoring under 40 CFR Part 136,
"Guidelines Establishing Test
Procedures for the Analysis of
Pollutants". These methods typically
contain a statement that "In recognition
of advances that are occurring in
analytical technology, and to allow the
analyst to overcome sample matrix
interferences, the analyst is permitted
certain options to improve separations
or lower the costs of measurements.
These options include alternate
extraction, concentration, cleanup
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, OW has
found that many 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
OW's position regarding its application.
This action will also propose to extend
this flexibility to all methods currently
approved under 40 CFR Part 136. The
purpose of extending this flexibility to
all 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.

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: All existing manufacturing,
commercial, mining, and silvicultural
operations requiring a National
Pollutant Discharge Elimination System
(NPDES) permit must submit an
application in order to obtain a permit.
The existing industrial application form
has not been revised since 1984 and
needs to be updated to reflect statutory
and regulatory changes in the NPDES
program, advances in analytical
methods and an increased emphasis on
toxic control. The purpose of this
action is to revise and consolidate
existing application forms and
requirements for industries, and to
streamline the permit application
process for these facilities. The Agency
seeks to establish a unified process that
minimizes the need for additional
information from applicants while
providing permit writers the necessary
information, including toxics data, to
ensure that permits adequately address
concerns of permittees and
environmental protection. The Agency
seeks to allow the use of existing data
and to avoid unnecessary reporting.
The Agency is also considering how to
utilize electronic data submission.
Although these forms will increase the
burden on permittees not already
required to provide these data, many
other permittees are already required to
submit data. The Agency is minimizing
the need for information from small
entities, including tribal facilities. The
burden on States would be minimized
and even reduced because of
improvements to the application forms.

Abstract: EPA will be proposing
changes to the stormwater regulations
for the remaining unregulated
dischargers that require regulation. Also
known as  "Phase II dischargers," these
sources generally could include all
stormwater discharges from
commercial,  retail, and institutional
facilities and from municipal separate
storm sewer  systems serving
populations of less than 100,000. Data
collected  under sections 305(b) and
402(p)(5)  of the CWA indicate that
benefits will be derived from
addressing these discharges under the
Phase II program. Urban stormwater
runoff is a real cause of water quality
use impairment. EPA has invited
stakeholders to participate in the
development of comprehensive Phase II
rules under the Federal Advisory
Committee Act (FACA). This FACA
group will assist in the development
of the rule. Currently all Phase II
dischargers are required to have
stormwater permits by 2001. EPA will
be considering limiting the universe of
Phase II sources and may recommend
control options that are  less
burdensome  than permits.

Abstract: This rulemaking proposes to
revise the approach for calculating the
baseline bioaccumulation factor (BAF)
for the total class of polychlorinated
biphenyls (PCBs) for the Water Quality
Guidance for the Great Lakes System
(Guidance or Part 132). The new
approach produces a different BAF
value for use in the derivation of the
human health and wildlife criteria. EPA
has recalculated the human health and
wildlife criteria using the new BAF
values and is proposing to revise the
criteria for PCBs codified in Table 3
and 4 to Part 132. The Agency is
committed to issuing a final rule before
March 1997, when the Great Lakes
States must submit programs to
implement the Guidance.

Abstract: EPA is revising its rule
promulgated on December 22, 1992,
(National Toxics Rule or NTR) that
established water  quality criteria for 14
States that had failed to fully comply
with section 303(2)(B) of the Clean
Water Act. The NTR promulgated total
recoverable metals criteria for 11 of
these 14 States.  In October 1993, the
Office of Water issued a policy
memorandum recommending a shift to
the use of dissolved metals criteria
because they more accurately reflect the
bioavailable fraction of waterborne
metals for aquatic life. This revision
will convert the total recoverable
metals criteria to dissolved metals
criteria and bring the 11 States into
alignment with the current policy on
the use of dissolved metals.

This action is de-regulatory in nature,
but is not expected to impact the health
of aquatic life hi the water column.
EPA expects this rule to result in less
stringent permit limits and therefore a
potential cost savings in wastewater
treatment for dischargers of metals in
the 11 covered States.

 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: Under the current
 regulations, many changes to approved
 publicly owned treatment works
 (POTW) pretreatment programs are not
 effective until formally approved by
 EPA or the State. The formal approval
 procedures require two public notices
 of program changes. The entire
 approved POTW pretreatment program
 is also made a  part of the National
 Pollutant Discharge Elimination System
 (NPDES) permit of the POTW that
 administers the pretreatment program.
 This means that the POTW's NPDES
 permit is modified when the
 pretreatment program is revised. There
 are  State and EPA backlogs of
 pretreatment program changes for
 approval. The double notice procedure
 is expensive and normally elicits little
 public comment.
Under the new regulations, the POTW's
NPDES permit  would include only
certain significant elements of the
approved POTW pretreatment program.
EPA or the State would need to
approve changes to the POTW

making it unlawful for vessels to

amendment would provide guidance to

This amendment will have no impact
on small businesses and would only

Abstract: The purpose of this action is
to revise and consolidate existing
application forms and requirements for
Publicly Owned Treatment Works
(POTWs) and other Treatment Works
Treating Domestic Sewage (TWTDS),
and to streamline the application
process for these facilities. The Agency
seeks to establish a unified process that
minimizes the need for additional
information from applicants while
providing permit writers the necessary
information, including toxics data, to
ensure that permits adequately address
concerns of permittees and
environmental protection. The Agency
seeks to allow the use of existing data
and to avoid unnecessary reporting.
The Agency is also considering how to
utilize electronic data submission.
Although these forms will increase the
burden on permittees not already
required to provide these data, many
permittees are already required to
submit these data. The Agency is
minimizing the need for information
from small entities, including tribal
facilities. The burden on States would
be minimized and even reduced
because of improvements to the
application forms.

Abstract: This rule will implement the
Shore Protection Act (SPA) and is
designed to prevent the deposit of
municipal and commercial waste into
U.S. Coastal Waters. This rule
establishes minimum waste handling
practices for vessels and waste
handling facilities involved in the
transport of municipal or commercial
wastes in the coastal waters of the U.S.
The rule may require certain vessels
and waste handling facilities to  develop
an operation and maintenance manual
that identifies procedures to prevent,
report, and clean up deposits of waste
into coastal waters. Municipalities and
businesses involved with the vessel
transportation and shore side handling
of these wastes would be affected by
this rule.

State governments in the business of
transporting municipal or commercial
waste by vessel would have to comply
with the minimum waste handling
standards. Currently no Tribes are
known to be involved in waste
handling of this type, therefore none
would be affected by this rule. In
regards to  small businesses, EPA has
provided guidance  on development of
operation and maintenance manuals
and encourages the use and
documentation of existing industry
practices that meet or exceed the EPA
proposed minimum waste handling
standards. All indications are that this
regulation as proposed would have a
minimal economic  impact.  This
regulation will result in reduction of
municipal and commercial wastes
deposited  in coastal waters.

Radiological Preparedness Coordinating
Committee (FRPCC) for review and
comment. Members of the PAG
subcommittee include representatives
from DOE, DOD, FEMA, NRC, 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.

Methods and others. Periodically, the
Agency updates and revises methods to
incorporate newer technologies.
Standard setting organizations such as
APHA, ASTM, and USGS also routinely
revise and update methods.
In this regulatory effort, EPA proposes
to approve new methods or newer
versions of existing methods and at the
same time withdraw approval of older
outdated methods. The new additional
methods to be proposed for approval
will include immunoassays.
Immunoassays detect target compounds
using an antibody which binds only to
that substance. These assays are
increasingly applied to environmental
analysis because of their selectivity,
accuracy, speed, low limit of detection
and economy.

Abstract: On March 16, 1995 President
Clinton issued a directive to reduce
existing paperwork burdens by 25%. To
help meet this 25% reduction goal, the
UIC program will try to reduce
approximately 90,000 hours of the
paperwork burden on State and
injection well operators. The UIC
program plans to reduce the frequency
of a number of regularly scheduled
reports by 50%. The Program will
include these reductions in the overall
25% reduction. In order to meet the
25% reduction EPA will consider the
following changes: (1) reduction in
monitoring and reporting frequency,
and (2) reduction in requirements for
state reviews of lifetime permits.

the CFR to reduce burden or

Legal Authority: 42 USC SOOj-4 /SDWA
1445
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 141
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The current drinking water
monitoring requirements vary by
contaminant (e.g., inorganic vs.
organic), the source of the supply (i.e.,
surface water vs. ground water) and by
system size. After an initial series of
samples, the sampling frequency
increases or decreases based on the
results of the initial series. Because
there are numerous permutations to the
possible frequencies at any one
sampling point, the requirements are
difficult to understand. And because
the requirements presume all systems
are contaminated, many systems have
conducted expensive monitoring
without finding any contamination.
EPA intends to simplify and improve
the cost effectiveness of the current
requirements for chemical
contaminants by reducing the number
of variables upon which the sampling
frequencies turn, by providing greater
latitude for state discretion in
customizing the sampling frequencies
to local circumstances (i.e.,
vulnerability to contamination) and by
consolidating subsections wherever
possible.

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 300g-l
/SDWA 1412
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 141; 40 CFR 142
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: EPA will promulgate
revisions to the National Primary
Drinking Water Regulations for Lead
and Copper published June 7,1991.
The basic lead and copper regulations
will remain intact, however, EPA will
promulgate minor revisions to refine
specific requirements and improve
implementation of the rule. Some of
these revisions are deregulatory in
nature, in that they will lessen
monitoring requirements for public
water systems which have consistently
shown  very low levels of lead and
copper at the tap. EPA also plans to
promulgate changes that will provide
many community water systems more
flexibility in the delivery of lead public
education requirements, and allow
States to invalidate inappropriate
samples. Other revisions would
promote consistent national
implementation by clarifying the
monitoring requirements that apply in
different circumstances. Finally, EPA
plans to respond to a remand in
American Water Works Association v.
EPA, 40 F.3D  1266 (DC Circuit 1994),
on portions of the Lead and Copper
regulation by promulgating a revised
definition of control  as it applies to
lead service line replacement and to
address the current exemption of
transient non-community water systems
from coverage under the rule.
Nationally, EPA estimates the changes
will not affect the cost or benefits of
the Lead and Copper Rule significantly.
State governments should experience a
minor decrease in costs as a result of
these revisions. Many local and tribal
governments and small businesses that
operate public water systems should
also experience a decrease in annual
costs.

                  Abstract: This rule reformats the
                  current drinking water regulations to
                  make them easier to understand and
                  follow. This rule is not intended to
                  change any of the regulatory
                  requirements. The rule affects state,
                                     Association), ASTM (American Society
                                     for Testing and Materials) Methods,

                                     Methods and others). Periodically, the
                                     Agency updates and revises methods to
                                     incorporate newer technologies.
                                     Standard setting organizations such as
                                     APHA, ASTM and USGS also routinely
                                     revise and update methods.
                                     In this regulatory effort, EPA proposes
                                     to approve new methods or newer
                                     versions of existing methods for
                                     regulated radionuclides.
                                     The rule would allow the use of low

          Abstract: In the Safe Drinking Water
          Act, Congress required that EPA protect
          current and future underground sources
          of drinking water (USDWs) from the
          environmental and public health
          threats posed by the subsurface
          emplacement of fluids  through
          injection wells. A Report to Congress
          entitled Class V Injection Wells -

EPA—SDWA
                                                                         Final Rule Stage
Current Inventory; Effects on Ground
Water; and Technical
Recommendations, September 1987
(EPA Document Number 570/9-87-006)
indicated that some types of Class V
wells have the potential to contaminate
USDWs. Class V injection wells are
generally shallow waste disposal wells,
storm water and agricultural drainage
systems, or other devices that are used
to release fluids either directly into or
above USDWs. In some instances, the
fluids released by these wells contain
elevated concentrations of
contaminants that may endanger
drinking water supplies. EPA
responded to the threats posed by these
wells by developing and implementing
a comprehensive strategy for the
management of Class V injection wells.
The strategy involves a tailored
combination of guidance, education,
and outreach, and enhancing the use
of existing regulatory autiiorities
through some minor changes to  existing
                    regulations. The overall goal of the
                    strategy is to speed up the closure of
                    potentially endangering Class V wells
                    using current authorities and to
                    promote the use of Best Management
                    Practices (BMPs) to ensure that other
                    Class V wells do not endanger USDWs.

                    The proposed regulatory changes are a
                    key component of the comprehensive
                    strategy for managing Class V wells The
                    minor regulatory changes to 40 CFR
                    parts 144 and 146 would improve the
                    effectiveness of the current Class V
                    regulations by making it easier for the
                    regulated community to understand the
                    existing requirements applicable to
                    shallow disposal wells. The proposed
                    changes include a simplification of the
                    current categories of Class V wells, the
                    clarification of certain key definitions
                    to make it clear to the regulated
                    community which types of shallow
                    disposal systems are Class V wells and
                    which are not, and the reclassification
                                               of deep low-level radioactive wells to
                                               Class I.
                                               EPA is re-evaluating the proposed rule
                                               in response to comments received and
                                               renegotiating the judicial deadline.

 Abstract: This action initiates  a
 technical review of the possible risks
 associated with management of silver-
bearing wastes, which is being
conducted in response to petitions
submitted to the Agency to delete the
toxicity characteristic level for silver.
EPA will address all potential pathways
for risks from silver-bearing wastes,
including possible ecological effects.
Silver is on the toxicity characteristic
list because it was a regulated drinking
water contaminant. In January 1991, the
Agency deleted the primary drinking
water maximum contaminant level
(MCL) for silver because the Agency
concluded that silver causes no adverse
human health effects. The petitioners,
users of silver materials and silver
waste generators, petitioned the Agency
to delete silver from the TC list on the
basis of the Agency's conclusions
regarding silver toxicity to humans in
deleting the MCL.
The Agency believes that before a
decision can be made to delete or
modify the toxicity characteristic level
 for silver, a more complete assessment
 of risks posed by management of silver-
 bearing wastes must be conducted,
 including a review of possible
 ecological risks.

 Pending the outcome of this review, the
 Agency may revise or delete the TC
 level for silver, if warranted.

Abstract: Following a major inland oil
spill with substantial environmental
impacts (i.e., Ashland Oil in Floreffe,
PA, in January 1988), and 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. This
action supplements the 1991 proposed
revisions, and proposes to reduce
burdens associated with the rule by
reducing the recordkeeping provisions
or exempting some facilities from some
or all recordkeeping requirements. In
proposing these burden reductions,
EPA will consider available  data on
how factors, such as facility type, size,
throughput, and location, may affect
the threat of discharging oil  to waters
of the United iStates.

CRITERIA FOR SMALL MUNICIPAL
SOLID WASTE LANDFILLS
Priority: Other Significant
Reinventing Government: This

the CFR to reduce burden or

Legal Authority: 42 USC 6949a/RCRA
4010
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 258
Legal Deadline: Final, Judicial, March
26, 1998.
Abstract: On March 26,1996, President
Clinton signed into law the Land
Disposal Program Flexibility Act of
1996 (LDPFA), H.R. 2036. Among other
things, the LDPFA established a
ground-water monitoring exemption for
small municipal solid waste landfills
(MSWLFs) located in dry or remote
areas. EPA has revised the  municipal
solid waste disposal facility criteria (40
CFR Part 258) to establish a ground-
water monitoring exemption for these
facilities (the codification rule). The
LDPFA also requires EPA to revise the
Part 258 municipal solid waste disposal
facility criteria to provide additional
flexibility to small MSWLFs with
respect to daily cover, the frequency of
landfill gas monitoring, the use of an
infiltration barrier in the final landfill
cover, and the means for demonstrating
financial assurance. These  revisions
must take into account climatic and
hydrogeologic conditions and be
protective of human health and the
environment. EPA has begun work on
 a separate rulemaking to provide this
 flexibility while still ensuring
 protection of human health and the
 environment.
 In 1991, the Agency promulgated final
 municipal solid waste disposal facility
 criteria (40 CFR Part 258),  which
 established national minimum
 standards for municipal solid waste
landfills (MSWLFs). The Part 258
criteria provided an exemption from
ground-water monitoring for small
MSWLF units located in dry or remote
areas. In providing this exemption, EPA
sought to balance the protection of
human health and the environment
with the practicable capability of these
small community landfill owners and
operators. This ground-water
monitoring exemption was vacated in
1993 by the U.S. Court of Appeals for
the District of Columbia Circuit.

On August 10, 1995, the Agency
proposed a new rule on alternative
ground-water monitoring options for
small MSWLFs located in dry or remote
areas. The proposed rule would have
provided small MSWLFs with
flexibility in meeting the Part 258
ground-water monitoring requirements.

(Abstract Continued) As a result of the
establishment  of the Part 258 ground-
water monitoring exemption for small
MSWLFs located in dry or remote
areas, many small landfills no longer
need this flexibility because they are
not be subject to the ground-water
monitoring requirements. Therefore, the
Agency has withdrawn the proposed
rule on alternative ground-water
monitoring options, in the codification
rule.

 Abstract: In response to a September
 15,1994, order from the United States
 Court of Appeals for the District of
 Columbia Circuit, the Agency is
 reviewing the validity of the used oil
 mixture rule, 40 CFR 279.10(b). EPA
 has concluded that further analysis is
 necessary to determine whether
 mixtures of used oil destined for
 recycling and characteristic hazardous
 wastes differ significantly from other
 mixtures containing characteristic
 wastes in terms of potential threat to
 human health and the environment.
 The used oil mixture rule provides that
 a mixture of hazardous waste and used
 oil destined for recycling, if the mixture
 is hazardous solely because it exhibits
 a hazardous waste characteristic, is
 regulated under the used oil
 management standards. Under the used
 oil mixture rule, such a decharacterized
 mixture, therefore, is not subject to the
 hazardous waste regulations, including
 those relating to land disposal
 restrictions.

many cases, the post-closure permit is
an appropriate mechanism for the
regulatory agency to use to address the
environmental needs at the facility. In
other cases, however, a  permit may not
be appropriate. And, in some cases, the
facility's post-closure care needs may
have already been addressed through
other legal mechanisms, such as
enforcement actions or Superfund

actions. In these cases, subsequent
issuance of a post-closure permit would
not provide any environmental benefit,
although, under the current regulations,
it is still required. This rule would
remove the requirements to issue a
permit to address post-closure care hi
all cases. A permit would remain an
option, but EPA Regions and
authorized States would be able to use
other mechanisms as well, depending
on the circumstances at the facility.
States authorized to implement the
RCRA program are currently required
to adopt authority to compel corrective
action at permitted facilities. They are
not required to have similar authority
at interim status facilities, though many
States do. As a result, the corrective
action program is implemented by the
State, at some facilities, and by the EPA
Regions at other. This rule would
require States to adopt, as part of their
authorized RCRA programs, authority
to address corrective action at interim
status facilities. This would result in
a more consistent implementation of
the corrective action program in the
States.

environmental risks posed by certain
used solvents and wastes from their
use, and determines whether or not
these wastes should be listed as
hazardous wastes under RCRA. If listed
under RCRA these wastes would also
be added to the CERCLA list of
hazardous substances. The spent
solvents studied are cumene, phenol,
isophorone, acetonitrile, fufural,
epichlorohydrin, methyl chloride,'
ethylene dibromide, benzyl chloride, p-
dichlorobenzene, z-methoxyethanol, z-
ethoxyethanol, z-ethoxyethanol acetate,
and cyclohexanol. The legal deadline
for the rule is based on a consent
decree entered into with plaintiffs in
EDF v. Browner, Civil Action No. 89-
0598 (D.D.C.). On August 14, 1996, the
Agency proposed not to list any of the
spent solvents studied.

States and Tribal governments in
implementing the RCRA program.
Impacts on small businesses and local
governments are not expected.

 Abstract: On October 9,1991 the
 Agency promulgated revised criteria for
 municipal solid waste landfills
 (MSWLFs) which included financial
 assurance requirements to ensure that
 adequate funds are readily available to
 cover the costs of closure, post-closure
 care, and corrective action associated
 with MSWLFs without incurring
 government response costs. The
 proposal would add a corporate
 financial test to the financial assurance
 mechanisms currently available to
 owners and operators of RCRA Subtitle
 D MSWLFs. EPA estimates that the rule
 would save owners and operators of
 MSWLFs approximately $45 million
 annually by allowing the use of a
 financial test rather than more
 expensive mechanisms such as surety
 bonds or letters of credit. The rule
 would have no impacts on local
 governments but could be implemented
 by state or tribal governments.

Abstract:  The proposed revised
financial responsibility test would be
better than the current test at 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 more 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. 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.

Abstract: EPA will issue a  rule
clarifying when military munitions

transportation and storage of such
wastes are safe and protective of human
health and the environment. The rule
will address munitions in the military
stockpile to be demilitarized, burning
of excess propellants, emergency
responses involving both military and
non-military explosives, and
unexploded ordnance on firing ranges.
State National Guard units as well as
Federal DOD, DOE, and DOT (Coast
Guard) units will be subject to these
rules. The rule, in lieu of revising the
definition of "on-site," will exempt
transportation from the RCRA manifest
on public or private right-of-ways
between contiguous properties under
the control of the same person. EPA
and EPA-authorized States will
implement the standards.

 Currently, authorization and grant

 Tribe must meet for authorization. This
 rule furthers EPA's recognition of
 Tribal sovereignty and furthers the
 Agency's goal of delegating
 environmental programs to Tribes. This

 given to States since the level of
 funding is likely to remain constant but
 the number of grantees is anticipated
 to increase. It will also impact tie

Abstract: The criteria for Municipal
Solid Waste Landfills require landfill
owners/operators to assure that they
can cover the costs of closure and post-
closure care of their landfills and the
costs of cleaning up any known
releases from their landfills. This rule
will allow local governments to meet
all or part of their financial assurance
requirements based on their financial
                   strength. The rule will provide greater
                   flexibility to local governments to
                   demonstrate compliance with the
                   financial assurance requirements. EPA
                   estimates that the local government
                   financial test would save local
                   governments $105 million annually.
                   Small local governments and Tribal
                   governments that own or operate
                   landfills would share in this savings.

                  Abstract: This action known as the
                  State/Tribal Implementation Rule or
                  STIR, will delegate to  States and Indian
                  Tribes the authority to control the
                  human health and environmental risks
                  associated with municipal solid waste
                  (MSW) landfill management,
                  particularly groundwater
                  contamination. The STIR will do so by
                  establishing criteria and procedures for
                  EPA to use to determine whether State
                  and tribal MSW landfill permit
                  programs are adequate to ensure
                  compliance with the Solid Waste
                  Disposal Facility Criteria.  While the
                  Disposal Facility Criteria automatically
                  apply to all MSW landfills, States and

                                               recycled products. EPA is to designate
                                               items that are made with recovered
                                               materials and  to recommend practices
                                               for government procurement. Once
                                               designated, procuring agencies are
                                               required to purchase these items with
                                               the highest percentage of recovered
                                               materials practicable. On May 1, 1995,

Recovered Materials Advisory Notice
(RMAN) (60 FR 21386). The Order
requires EPA to update the CPG and
issue RMANs annually. The Agency
consolidated EPA's five existing
procurement guidelines (for paper and
paper products, retread tires, re-refined
lubricating oil, building insulation,  and
cement and concrete containing fly ash)
into the CPG and RMAN. This action
would propose the first update to the
CPG, in which additional items would
be designated, and additional
recommendations would be discussed
in the RMAN.

MANAGEMENT ACT
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: PL 104-142
CFR Citation: Not yet determined
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The purpose of this rule is
to codify into the Code of Federal
Regulations certain provisions of the
"Mercury-Containing and Rechargeable
Battery Management Act" that impact
the May 11, 1995 Universal Waste Rule
( 60 FR 25492). The Act was signed
by the President on May 13, 1996 and
became immediately effective
nationwide on the date of signature.
Specifically, one provision of the law
requires the collection, storage, and
transportation of the following types of
batteries be managed according to
standards established in the Universal
Waste rule: used rechargeable batteries,
lead-acid batteries not covered by 40
CFR Part 266, rechargeable alkaline
batteries, certain mercury-containing
batteries banned from domestic sale,
and used consumer products containing
rechargeable batteries that are not easily
removable. The law prohibits State
imposed requirements that are not
identical to those found in the final
Federal universal waste rule, but allows
States to adopt and enforce identical
standards for labeling and to implement
and enforce collection, storage, and
transport requirements identical to
those included in the universal waste
rule.
The costs of this action should be
minimal to the regulated industry since
the community regulated by the law —
battery manufacturers, industries that
use batteries in their consumer
products, and the retail industry.— all
support the law. In addition, the
regulated community has rechargeable
battery recycling programs already in
place and such recycling programs are
in compliance with the labeling and
management provisions of the law.
Second, most States have state
rechargeable battery recycling statutes
in place but their recycling programs
vary to some degree with respect to
labeling and management requirements.
Therefore, modifications to State
statutes for rechargeable battery
recycling will be necessary, but not
costly.

Abstract: This rule and ANPRM would
make technical modifications to minor
features of the Acid Rain Allowance
Trading Program. The rule would
eliminate a small direct sale program
for acid rain allowances; this program
has never been used and is not needed.
The ANPRM would make technical
changes in the related auction program.

3632. ACID RAIN  PROGRAM: SO2
ALLOWANCE AUCTION AND
ELECTRONIC ALLOWANCE
TRANSFER
Priority: Other Significant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7651 et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 73
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Title IV of the Clean Air Act,
as amended (the Act),  authorized the
EPA to establish the Acid Rain Program
to reduce the adverse health and
ecological effects of acidic deposition.
Under the Acid Rain Program, electric
utilities must have an  allowance for
each ton of sulfur dioxide (SO2) that
their generating facilities emit.
Title IV mandates that EPA hold or
sponsor yearly auctions and direct sales
of allowances for a small portion of the
total allowances allocated each year.
The United States General Accounting
Office has recommended that EPA1
change the  design of the auction so that
it is a single-price auction, in which
each bidder would pay the market-
clearing price. Currently the auction is
a price-discriminating action, meaning
that all bids are ranked beginning with
the highest dollar amount and that each
winning bidder pays what he or she
bids until all allowances are sold. EPA
is proposing to change the current
design and timing of the acid rain
allowance auctions. EPA is also
proposing to change the requirement
that additional allowances offered in
EPA auctions have a set minimum
price in whole dollars.
Title IV also provides for the transfer
of allowances and states  that a transfer
will not be effective until EPA receives
and records a written certification of
the transfer signed by a responsible
official of each party.  EPA is
considering development of a system to
allow electronic submittal of allowance
transfers. Under one option, the seller
alone would submit the transfer
without involving the buyer. EPA is
proposing to allow such electronic
transfers.

reasonable progress toward reducing
the effects of regional haze on these
sensitive areas. Since 1980, technical
knowledge of the causes of visibility
impairment (i.e., emissions of sulfur
dioxide, nitrogen oxides, certain
organic compounds, and particulate
matter) has progressed so that
innovative programs can be developed
to address regional pollution. This
rulemaking will require regional (multi-
state) planning to address regional
visibility in groupings of Class I areas.
Control activities will be balanced with
review of cost and
visibility/environmental benefits
analysis.

Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory, June
1,1998.
Abstract: Title IV of the Clean Air Act
directs the EPA to establish an acid
rain program to reduce adverse effects
of acidic deposition. The centerpiece of
this control program is allocation of
allowances, or authorizations to emit
SO2, that are distributed by the
Administrator in limited quantities to
utility units and must be held by all
affected units to cover their SO2
emissions. In 1993, EPA finalized the
allowance allocations and provided, in
the regulation, the methodology for
revising the allocations in 1998 based
on several statutory provisions. This
rulemaking will implement that
methodology, eliminate unaffected
units, and eliminate unnecessary
sections of regulation. This rulemaking
will affect only utility units affected by
the acid rain program requirements and
does not affect small businesses or
government entities.

 reductions in volatile organic
 compound (VOC) emissions by 1996.
 This rule will describe the form and
 manner in which States shall submit
 demonstrations that have achieved the
 required percent VOC emissions
 reductions (milestone) by the end of
 each designated time period. Since the
rule would only evaluate compliance
 with approved rules and control
strategy demonstrations, the rule does
not of itself impact  small businesses.
In fact, if approved 15 percent
reductions in VOC are not evaluated,
projected reductions might not actually
occur, and air pollution could exceed
earlier estimates in  the approved 15
percent plans.

 Abstract: Recognizing its trust
 responsibilities to Indian Tribes, EPA
 plans to exercise its regulatory
 authority to issue permits to sources of
 air pollution in Indian country where
 sources are not regulated by Indian
 Tribes. The Federal operating permits
 program for stationary air sources
 should extend to all of Indian country,
 but the regulation that created the
 program inadvertently created a
 regulatory gap. A change in regulations
 is needed to assure that each major
 source  in Indian country is subject to
 either a State, Tribal, or Federal permit
 program.
The regulatory change would create a
 level playing field for industry. Also,
the regulatory change would assure that
EPA can regulate sources that create air
pollution problems in Indian country
or that  are located in Indian country
and generate air pollution problems for
other areas.
There are no anticipated impacts on
small businesses or State or local
governments. The regulatory change
would eliminate a burden on Tribal
governments. They would not need to
demonstrate their jurisdiction over an
area in order for EPA to administer a
permit program for the area.

EPA to develop emission standards for
each major source category of
hazardous air pollutants. The standards
are to be technology-hased and are to
require the maximum degree of
emission reduction determined to be
achievable by the Administrator of
EPA. The EPA has determined that
some plants in the ferroalloy
production industry may be major
sources for one or more hazardous air
pollutants. As a consequence,
production facilities are among the
HAP-emitting source categories selected

listed in 40 CFR 73.10 tables 2 and 3.
In the process of implementing the
Acid Rain Program, EPA has learned
that several units listed in the tables
should not be affected by the Acid Rain
Program requirements. This action
would  delete specific named units from
the tables.

Abstract: A generic test procedure that
any industry can follow using FTIR
analysis will be developed. This
procedure would be self-validating.
Generic procedures for using an FTIR
as a continuous emission monitor
would include several alternatives for
sampling which would differ
depending on the source.

Abstract: Because of the success in the
reduction of ambient lead levels due
to the elimination of lead in gasoline
and the shift towards focusing on point
sources, the Office of Air Quality
Planning and Standards (OAQPS) is
revising the Part 58 Air Monitoring
Regulations for Lead which would
allow lead national ambient monitoring
stations (NAMS) monitors to be
discontinued. At the same time
monitoring around point sources will
be encouraged, for sources with
emissions greater than 5 tons/year. This
action is at the direct request of
numerous State and local agencies
whose NAMS lead monitors are
recording values at the minimum
detectable (MDL) of the methodology.
Since small point  sources are so
variable in their emissions/impacts,
that to prevent over-estimating ambient
lead levels, complete sampling coverage
is recommended. Complete sampling is
defined as continuous or daily
sampling. To provide complete
everyday sampling at lead point
sources at the same relative cost  as the
current procedure (one sample every 6
days followed by individual filter
analysis), the regulation will be
modified to allow: (l)use 2 or 3 high-
volume samplers at each location;
(2)sample for 48 instead of 24 hours;
(3)use a convenient continuous
sampling schedule, i.e., noon-to-noon
or 9a.m.-9a.m., etc.; (4) follow the
AREAL approved  procedure for
compositing up to 8 filters in a single
analysis; and (5) report monthly
averages which will be averaged
together to produce the quarterly
concentration to compare with the
standard. This rule serves as both a
regulation and as  a guideline for State
and local agencies in establishing and
maintaining their  ambient air
monitoring networks. Much of the
language within this rule has not
changed since it was originally written
in 1979, with a few exception. Because
this rule provides guidance as well as
regulatory requirements, there are
several sections of text that should be
updated to reflect current ambient air
monitoring information and references.

  Abstract: This action will provide

  out of the Reformulated Gasoline (RFG)
  Program before implementation of
  Phase II RFG. States will be required
  to announce by July 1997 whether their
  voluntary opt-in area(s) will remain in
  the RFG program. If a state decides to
  keep an opt-in area in the program, the
  area will be required  to remain in the
  program for a specified period of time
  (i.e., lock-in to the program) to enable
  refiners to recover a portion of the
  capital investments associated with
  complying with Phase II gasoline
  requirements. This  action provides the
  states the flexibility to opt-out of the
  program before implementation of
 Phase II xvhile providing incentives to
 industry to supply Phase II RFG which
 provides environmental and health
 benefits  (e.g., Phase II RFG reduces
 NOx, a precursor to ozone).

  Abstract: On January 11, 1993, EPA
  promulgated the final core acid rain
  rules, including the GEM regulation at
  40 CFR Part 75. Since the rule was
  promulgated, the 263 Phase I and 783
  Phase II utility units have already
  complied with this regulation by
  installing and completing certification
  testing by the January 1,1995 statutory
  deadline. During implementation of the
 January 11,1993 rule and of the
 technical revisions published May 17,
  1995, EPA and industry found a small
 number of additional issues requiring
 policy guidance and rule changes.
 These issues include: using monitoring
 equipment capable of reading both
 controlled and uncontrolled emissions
 (dual range monitors); clarification of
 span language; a variation of the
 existing Appendix D method for
 determining SO2 emissions; an
 alternative method of determining flow
 (Appendix I); and greater flexibility in
 scheduling quality assurance testing.

 These technical revisions will provide
 greater flexibility to the regulated
 community and will clarify parts of the
 rule. This action raises no major issues,
 but rather simplifies implementation by
 providing industry with more  options
 and flexibility. This action is necessary
 because of the experience and
 additional information both EPA and
 industry has gained from 1993 to the
 present. Industry views  this action as
 positive because it provides industry
with more implementation flexibility.

 Abstract: Presently, radioactive
 materials, particularly metals, are being
 released for recycling under standards
 that are not based on protection of
 human health. The proposed rule will
 establish protective risk-based
 standards for recycling; provide
 economic benefits through recovering
 the value of recycled metals; and
 reduce the need for disposal.
 We use radioactive materials for
 purposes such as making smoke alarms,
generating electricity, and diagnosing
and treating medical problems.
Radioactive materials are used  for

military purposes as well, particularly
in developing nuclear weapons and
providing power for submarines and
surface ships. These uses generate
materials which may contain some
level of radioactivity.
Due to their ready recyclahility, scrap
metals may be released for recycling if
the residual radioactive contamination
is below certain levels. These release
levels are currently specified in
guidance developed by the Nuclear
Regulatory Commission and federal
agencies. However, current release
criteria are not based on protection of
human health. The current standards
are based on measurement technologies
and historical practices. Moreover, the
release criteria were not intended to
apply to recycling of materials.
The Agency is developing standards for
scrap recycling which would be
protective of public health. The rule
would be based on the risks from
recycling metals with residual  .
radioactive contaminants. Scrap metals
from site cleanups and ongoing
operations of federal facilities and
licensees of the NRG would be  covered
by the rule. EPA expects that these
materials will be produced in sufficient
quantities to warrant a standard, and
while it is anticipated that much of this
metal will not contain radioactivity,
none should be recycled without  a risk-
based standard. Material that cannot be
released for recycling would continue
to be processed for LLW disposal.
Radiation protection standards for scrap
metals would fill a regulatory vacuum.
But most importantly., they would
insure that the public is  adequately
protected from exposure to residual
radioactivity in recycled metals. In
addition, risk-based release standards
would: (1) promote recovery of scrap
metal, (2) reduce the disposal of
materials that may not warrant disposal
as low-level radioactive waste,  and

                    Abstract: Revision of appendix G to
                    part 58 (Pollutant Standards Index or
                    PSI) is needed to reflect changes in the
                    PM and Ozone standards set by the
                    standards review process. The main
                    focus is the revision of the PSI function
                    for both PM and Ozone. The changes
                    are considered because the reviews for
                    both pollutants have revealed that there
                    is no real threshold for the onset of
                    health effects for these pollutants. This
                    will be reflected in the new  PSI
                    function by adding points just above
                    and below the standards with
                    appropriate language classifying the
                    new intervals.

 a revision to the permit.
 The Agency does not anticipate any
 significant impact on small businesses
 and State/local/Tribal governments.

Abstract: The Clean Air Act, 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 emissions
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
mineral wool  production industry 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
mineral wool  production industry to
promulgate emission  standards within
7 years of enactment  of the Clean Air
Act Amendments.

PROCESS

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: Clean Air Act, sec 112
as amended, November 1990
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 63
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,
November 15,1997.
EPA is required to promulgate national
emission standards for 50% of the
source categories listed in Sec. 112e)
by Nov. 15,1997. EPA plans to
promulgate this standard by November
30,1996.
Abstract: Hydrochloric acid (HC1) and
chlorine are among the pollutants listed
as hazardous air pollutants in Section
112 of the Clean Air Act, as amended
in November of 1990. Steel pickling
processes that use HCl solution and
HCl regeneration processes have been
identified by the EPA as potentially
significant sources of HCl and chlorine
air emissions and, as such, a source
category for which national emission
standards may be warranted.

 Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990
 Abstract: EPA is required to 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 CAAA and, to establish
 dates for the promulgation of emission
 standards for each of the listed
 categories of HAP emission sources and
 develop emission standards for each
 source of HAPs such that the schedule
 is met. The 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 phosphate fertilizer
 production industry may reasonable be
 anticipated to emit several of the 189
 HAPs listed in Section 112(b) of the
 CAAA. As a consequence, the source
 category is included on the initial list
 of HAP-emitting categories scheduled
 for standards promulgation within 10
 years of enactment of the CAAA. 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.

          Abstract: Cyanide compounds are
          among the pollutants listed as
          hazardous air pollutants in Section 112
          of the Clean Air Act Amendments of
          1990. As a consequence, the EPA has
          determined that sources that
          manufacture cyanide compounds may
          reasonable be anticipated  to emit
          cyanide compounds in quantities
          sufficient to qualify them  as major
          sources. Three source categories that
          either produce hydrogen cyanide  or use
          it in the production of other chemicals,
          specifically cyanuric chloride and
          sodium cyanide, are on the initial list
          of HAP emitting source categories
          selected for regulation. The results of
          an initial assessment of the three source
          categories conducted by the Agency
          indicated  that the facilities comprising
          each of the three source categories
          qualify as SOCMI sources. An interim
          final notice will be'prepared proposing
          the addition of the cyanide chemical
          manufacturing source categories to the
          list of SOCMI processes to be" regulated
          under the Hazardous Organic NESHAP.

Abstract: Title III of the amended
Clean Air Act (CAA) requires
development of emission standards for
all major sources, and selected area
sources, emitting any of the 189
hazardous air pollutants (HAP)
identified in Section 112(b) of the CAA.
Flexible Polyurethane Foam Production
has been listed as a category of major
sources based on documented
emissions of methylene chloride and
2,4-toluene diisocyanate. This action
will explore alternatives for controlling
the release of HAP  from the following
emission sources located at both
slabstock and molded polyurethane
foam production facilities: process
vents, storage, equipment leaks and
other fugitive sources, and transfer
operations. This action, however, will
not cover emissions from foam
fabrication. In June 1996 the Agency
added a separate source category to
address HAP from fabrication
operations.
Ultimately, a NESHAP for foam
production wijl be  developed based on
candidate Maximum Achievable
Control Technology. This  is a 7-year
standard, required to be promulgated
by November 1997.

3699. • GENERIC MACT FOR SOURCE
CATEGORIES WITH FEW SOURCES
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Unfunded Mandates: Undetermined
Legal Authority: Clean Air Act section
112
CFR Citation: Not yet determined
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,
November 15, 1997.
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 5). For such
source categories, EPA plans to develop
the underlying information through its
MACT Partnership Program and then
allow the affected sources and states to
develop the detailed MACT
requirements in a Title V operating
permit. To do this, EPA needs to
develop 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
will only affect major sources of these
HAPs.

Abstract: Final standards under section
112(d)  for hazardous air
pollutantsemissions from new and
existing lead smelters (40 CFR 63,
SubpartX) were promulgated on June
23,1995. The Agency has been
petitioned for reconsideration, and has
agreed  to revise portionsof the rule to
address the comments contained in the
petitions.
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.

GUIDELINES (CTG)

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

Unfunded Mandates: Undetermined

Legal Authority: Clean Air Act, sec
183 (a)

CFR Citation: Not applicable

Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,
November 1993.

Abstract: The Clean Air Act required
EPA to issue control technology
guidelines (CTG's) for 13, including
two specifically named, source
categories by November 15,1993. The
CTG's address volatile organic
compounds (VOC) that are precursors
to ozone formation. A CTG covering
two of the source categories - chemical
plant distillation and reactor process
vents - was published by that date.
Meanwhile, the States were required to
develop rules for the CTG source
categories by November 15,1994. The
EPA decided to issue Alternative
Control Techniques (ACT) documents
for the remaining source categories to
help the States. ACT's differ from
CTG's in that they are information
documents only; they do not contain
recommended control levels. ACT's
were issued for volatile  organic liquid
storage, batch operations, wastewater
operations, cleanup solvents,
lithographic printing, coating of plastic
parts, shipbuilding and repair coating
operations, wood furniture coatings,
and autobody refinishing. In addition,
hazardous air pollutant rules have been
developed for three of the CTG source
categories under  Section 112 of the
Clean Air Act. These three source
categories are aerospace manufacture,
wood furniture manufacture, and
shipbuilding and repair. CTG-related
requirements are being addressed in
concert with these hazardous air
pollutant rulemakings. EPA also
proposed a national rule to limit the
amount of VOC contained in coatings
sold to autobody refinishing shops on
April 30,1996. A final rule is planned
for February  1997.

SECTION 183(E)
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7401 et seq
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 59
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory, March
1997.
Abstract: This action would result in
the reduction of volatile organic
compound (VOC) emissions from the
coatings used by the Aerospace, Wood
Furniture and Shipbuilding industries.
The Agency will study the various VOC
pollutants contained in these coatings
and will evaluate pollution prevention
and control techniques which can
reduce these emissions; Control
Techniques Guidelines can be issued in
lieu of regulations  if they are
significantly as effective in reducing
VOC emissions from the use of these
coatings in ozone nonattainment areas.
This rulemaking will be conducted in
accordance with statutory requirements
for VOC emission reduction under
Section 183 (e) of the Clean Air Act.
The development of these VOC rules
will use data recently gathered for the
development of National Emission
Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants
(NESHAP) for these industries. This
will maximize resources and avoid
duplication of data gathering efforts.
There are small businesses in these
industries, but at this time it is not
known how many will be affected by
these rules or guidelines.

                  Legal Deadline: None
                  Abstract: This action would consider
                  an amendment to the existing
                  regulations to include ports of entry as
                  a location for EPA selection of foreign
                  produced vehicles and engines for SEA
                  emissions testing at laboratories in the
                  U.S. While the regulations do not
                  specify EPA authority to conduct such
                  port selections, the increased flexibility
 provided by port selections warrants
 amending the regulations. Presently,
 EPA must travel overseas to conduct
 SEA audits of foreign manufactured
 vehicles and engines, even though most
 manufacturers now have access to
 laboratory facilities in the U.S. The
 benefits include a reduction in Agency
 cost since fewer overseas trips would
 be necessary. Also, EPA would be able
 to conduct more audits of foreign
 manufactured vehicles and engines.

 Separate from the provisions proposed
 in this NPRM for amendments to allow
 port selection for SEAs, EPA is also
 proposing to make two other
 amendments to  40 CFR Part 86. The
 first would amend current Selective
 Enforcement Auditing regulations to
 change the minimum annual limit of
 Selective Enforcement Audits per
 manufacturer to two (2) per year.
 Currently, the minimum annual limit
 is one audit per manufacturer. Under
 the proposed amendments EPA would
 be able to perform a second audit on
 those manufacturers that might
 otherwise be limited to one audit.

 The second additional proposed
 amendment to Part 86 would delete
 from Subparts A and E references to
 the Agency representation in certain
 types of administrative hearings. The
 two provisions state that the Office of
 General Counsel will represent the
 Agency in administrative procedures
governing hearings on certification for
 light-duty vehicles, light-duty trucks,
heavy-duty engines and motorcycles.
The Agency is proposing to delete these
two provisions in order to be consistent
with other hearing procedures in Part
86.

fuel and fuel additives. The
prohibitions of section 211(f)(l)(A)
apply to fuels and fuel additives which
are not substantially similar to fuels or
additives used to certify vehicles to
emissions standards. This definition
will enable manufacturers to determine
whether their diesel fuels and additives
are covered by, or excluded from, the
section 211(f)(l)(B) prohibitions. This
definition will also reduce potential
burdens on manufacturers and EPA for
processing waivers for fuels and
additives under 211(5(4).

3707. MODIFICATIONS TO
STANDARDS FOR REFORMULATED
AND CONVENTIONAL GASOLINE
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Reinventing Government: This
rulemaking is part of the Reinventing
Government effort. It will revise text in
the CFR to reduce burden or
duplication, or streamline
requirements.
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7545/CAA
211
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 80
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Under authority of the Clean
Air Act, as amended in 1990, EPA
promulgated regulations to require a
cleaner burning reformulated gasoline
(RFC) in nine mandated areas of the
country with the worst ozone air
pollution problems. These areas are
designated as covered areas, (e.g., areas
in which non-RFG (conventional
gasoline) is prohibited from being sold
or dispensed to the ultimate consumers
of the gasoline. Other ozone
nonattainment  areas may opt-in to the
RFC program upon petition by the
Governor of the state in which the area
is located.
Since the RFC program became
effective in January 1995, many
enforcement related issues have been
raised concerning the implementation
of the program. Some of these issues
have required the exercise of
enforcement discretion through the use
of informal question and answer
guidance documents. This action will
codify those guidances which are
appropriate for incorporation into the
RFG regulations. This action will also
streamline, the regulations where
appropriate, and include certain
typographical and other minor
corrections.

Abstract: The current NSPS for electric
utility and nonutility steam generating
units were promulgated in 1979 and
1986, respectively. A major feature of
the NSPS is NOx control through the
use of low NOx burners or overfired
air. Section 407 of the Clean Air Act
requires the EPA to revise existing
NSPS for NOx emissions from fossil-
fuel fired steam generating units,
including hoth electric utility and
nonutility units. These revised
standards are to reflect improvements
in methods for the reduction of NOx
emissions.

The venting prohibition is extended to
all refrigerants as of 11/15/95; rules are
necessary to inform the regulated
community of the means by which to
prevent venting, recovery/recycling.
Abstract: This action would facilitate
fulfillment of the statutory mandate to
apply the venting prohibition to
substitute refrigerants. The action
would provide regulations covering
recovery/recycling equipment,
recovery/recycling practices, and
applicable certifications that would be
required to accomplish compliance
with the no-venting prohibition.
Requirements would parallel those of
the current section 608 regulations,
expanding applicability, where
appropriate, to all refrigerants.

3712. PROTECTION OF
STRATOSPHERIC OZONE:
RECONSIDERATION OF SECTION 608
SALES RESTRICTION •
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7401 et seq;
Clean Air Act section 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
CFCs, HCFCs, 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. Also, this amendment will
                                                        include corrections and clarifications
                                                        concerning leak repair requirements.
                                                        This action has no  impact on small

                   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) and
                   the Federal Response Plan (FRP), and
                   independently using 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.

 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 82 subpart C
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: EPA will reconsider the
 exception for the use of class n
 substances in portable fire
 extinguishers under the Nonessential
 Products Ban. The current regulations
 provide an exemption until an
 alternative substance is commercially
 available. At the time the regulations
 were promulgated (December 30,1993),
 EPA was aware of several potential
 substances under development and
 testing. These substances are
 continuing to be tested tested and
 developed. EPA believes that once
 these substances are available, they will
bo able to replace the use of both halon
 and HCFCs in portable fire
 extinguishers.
EPA intends to reconsider the
expiration of the exemption to provide
better guidance to the regulated
community. The regulated community
is concerned with the use of the term
commercially available in the
regulatory text. Therefore, EPA will
propose revising the language by
providing a date-certain exemption.
EPA believes it can provide this type
of certainty to the regulated community
without compromising the goals of
protecting public health and the
environment.

METHODOLOGY UPDATE
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 300 et seq
CFR Citation: Not yet determined
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The primary purpose of this
rule is to propose more accurate
controls of radioactivity in drinking  .
water through a technical correction in
does methodology for beta and photon
emitters only.
EPA has decided to use the Federal
Guidance Report (FGR)-11 (1988) as the
method for dose conversion for beta
and photon emitters. Use of this
method will provide consistency with
other federal agencies. The newly
revised concentrations in water using
the FGR-11 method will replace the
values published earlier in the National
Bureau of Standards (NBS) Handbook
69, as amended in August 1963. The
current beta and photon emitters MCL,
as calculated in NBS 69 (1963), is 4
millirem/year total body or organ dose
equivalent dose methodology. EPA is
proposing a 4 mrem/year effective dose
equivalent (EDE) dose methodology.

                                      Abstract: The User Fees for Radon
                                      Proficiency Programs Final Rule
                                      established fees in 1994 that EPA will
                                      collect annually to support its
                                      voluntary Radon Proficiency Programs.
                                      The rule requires individuals and
                                      organizations applying to or
                                      participating in the Radon Proficiency
                                      Program (RPP) to pay annual fees.  The
                                      final rule states that EPA shall adjust
                                      the fees over the next two years to a
                                      level that will ultimately be sufficient
                                      to recover the full annual costs of the
                                      program. Through this technical
                                      amendment, EPA will revise its fee
                                      schedule to collect a larger percentage
                                      of its annual (FY 96) operating costs.
                                      The annual fees will also reflect
                                      changes in the proficiency programs,
                                      participation,  inflation, etc. In the
                                      calculation of the annual fees, the
                                      Agency will take into consideration the
                                      impact of the  third year of fee
                                      collection on the radon industry.

3738. REVISION OF INITIAL LIST OF
CATEGORIES OF SOURCES AND
SCHEDULE FOR STANDARDS UNDER
SECTION 112(C) AND (E) OF THE
CLEAN AIR ACT AMENDMENTS OF
1990
Priority: Info./Admin./Other
Unfunded Mandates: Undetermined
Legal Authority: CAA 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 189
hazardous air pollutants identified in
Section 112. The 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% of all initially listed
categories within 4 years, 50% within
7 years, and  100% within 10 years. The
schedule for the promulgation of
emissions standards was published in
December 1993.
This action revises the initial 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. As
a result of several additions  and
deletions of source categories, the list
now contains 175 categories. Categories
may be added at any time contingent
upon showing that the category is a
category of major sources or that a
category of area sources poses a threat
of adverse effect and warrants
regulation under Section 112. Actions
to add or remove area source categories
are handled through separate Federal
Register notices in order to provide the
opportunity for public comment on
them. Actions included within this
action are: 1) adding categories of major
sources, where major sources have been
identified; 2) deleting categories of
major sources which, upon further
study, have been found to not contain
major sources; 3) moving categories to
different, more appropriate industry
groups for purposes of clarity; 4)
modifying titles and definitions of
listed source categories to clarify
applicability; and 5) reporting other
relevant source -category actions that
were published independently of this
action.

 Section 113(f) authorizes the
 Administrator to prescribe, by
 regulation, additional criteria for
 eligibility for such an award. EPA
 intends that the rule set forth such
 additional criteria. The rule also
 describes criteria for assessing the value
 of information and services when
 considering paying an award, and what
 is needed to adequately petition the
 Administrator for consideration of
 payment. The rule will also address
 confidentiality matters; some citizens
 provide information or services on a

 Abstract: The Clean Air Act
 Amendments gives EPA the authority
 to issue on-the-spot field citations for
 minor violations of the Clean Air Act,
 with penalties of up to $5,000 per day

 requires the field citation program to
be implemented through regulations
 which provide the informal hearing
procedures. These hearing procedures
are not required to be as rigorous as
those imposed by the Administrative
                   Procedures Act (APA), but nevertheless
                   must provide due process. Agency
                   guidance providing appropriate
                   penalties for specific minor violations
                   will be prepared for EPA employees
                   and made available to the regulated
                   community. Training on the issuance
                   of field citations will also be

 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: This rule would establish
 criteria by which a  refiner could
receive an adjustment to its baseline
under certain; circumstances. Baseline
adjustments reduce the cost of
compliance (primarily with the anti-
dumping requirements of the
reformulated gasoline program) for
those refiners which would otherwise
be extremely burdened.
Baseline adjustments under certain
circumstances were provided for in the
December 1993 final Reformulated
Gasoline and Anti- Dumping rule.
However, baseline adjustments are only
allowed under certain narrowly defined
circumstances; broad adjustments are
 beyond EPA's discretion. The
 circumstances for which baseline
 adjustments would be allowed under
 this rule are as follows: 1) production
 of JP-4 in 1990; 2) use of an extremely
 low-sulfur crude in 1990; 3) having
 extremely low baseline values for sulfur
 and solefins. Refiners must meet
 specific criteria in order to qualify for
 one or more of these  adjustments.

Unfunded Mandates: Undetermined
Legal Authority: Clean Air Act
Amendments of 1990, sec 183(e)
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 59
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory, March
1997.
Abstract: Section 183(e) requires EPA
to study the emissions of volatile
organic compounds (VOC) from
consumer and commercial products,
list those categories of products that
account for  at least 80 percent of the
total VOC emissions from consumer
and commercial products in areas
 classified as nonattainment for ozone,
 divide the list into four groups, and
regulate one group every  2 years using
best available controls (BAG). Based on
 the criteria described in the consumer
and commercial product study (March
1995), and category listing (March
1995), EPA has determined that VOC
emissions from automobile refinish
coatings should be regulated by March
1997. Automobile refinish coatings can
be generally classified as primers and
topcoats, each consisting of several
different types, the proposed rule
divides automobile refinish coatings
into 6 categories, and contains VOC
content limits for each category.
Automobile refinish coatings are used
by body shops and by do-it-yourselfers.
However, the proposed rule does not
directly affect these small businesses.
Rather, the rule would apply to coating
manufacturers and importers, and
would limit the VOC content of
coatings that are produced for sale in
the United States.

NONHANDHELD NEW NONROAD

ENGINES

Priority: Substantive,  Nonsignificant

Legal Authority: 42 USC 7521CAA 201

CFR Citation: 40 CFR 90

Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This direct  final rule revises
the existing new nonroad Phase I small
spark-ignited (SI) engine regulations.
Briggs and Stratton Corporation
submitted a petition to the
Administrator on March 4, 1996, asking
the Agency to reconsider the existing
regulation and to either allow the use
of oxygenated certification fuels with
the current CO standard or revise the
existing carbon monoxide (CO)
emission standard for class I and II
nonhandheld engines. Briggs and
Stratton argues that the majority of
nonhandheld engines sold in the
United States can not meet the current
CO standard when tested on the
monoxygenated certification test fuel
specified in the regulations. EPA has
finalized the CO  standard on the basis
of data provided to the Agency by
Briggs  and Stratton. The Agency had
assumed that the data was collected
using Indolene (a monoxygenated,
nonreformulated gasoline) as the test
fuel. In fact, Briggs and Stratton had
used California's Phase II Reformulated
Gasoline (RFC) in the testing, but had
not informed EPA of this before the
rule was finalized. The use of an
oxygenated fuel has an effect on the
emissions from these engines,
particularly CO, and  Briggs and
Stratton had used California's Phase II
Reformulated Gasoline (RFC) in the
testing, but had not informed EPA of
this before the rule was finalized. The
use of an  oxygenated fuel has an effect
on the emissions from these engines,
particularly CO,  and  Briggs and
Stratton has suggested that the CO
standard that the Agency finalized was
thus more stringent than is feasible
based  on their data.

 EPA staff are analyzing new data
 provided by Briggs and Stratton
 concerning the amount of the CO
 emission offset between Indolene and
 RFC for nonhandheld engines. Based
 on data analysis and documentation
 provided by Briggs and Stratton in
 support of their petition, EPA intends
 to determine the amount of the
 emission offset and consider raising the
 Phase I CO emission standard for
 nonhandheld engines accordingly. In
 their petition to EPA, Briggs and
 Stratton assert that raising the CO
 standard should result in reduced
 emissions of hydrocarbons and oxides
 of nitrogen, which are the primary
 pollutants of concern under the Phase
 I small SI rule.

 Abstract: Under authority of the Clean
 Air Act as amended in 1990, EPA
 promulgated regulations to require a
 cleaner burning "reformulated
 gasoline" (RFC) in nine mandated areas
 of the country with the worst ozone
 air pollution problems. These areas are
 designated as "covered areas," (e.g.,
 areas in which non-RFG ("conventional
 gasoline") is, prohibited from being sold
 or dispensed to the ultimate consumers
 of the gasoline.
 The RFC regulations also include a
 provision which allows a State, upon
 petition by the Governor, to have other
 areas designated as nonattainment for
 ozone included as "covered areas"
 under the Federal RFG program (the
 "opt-in" provision).
 This action will expand the opt-in
 provision to include areas that that
 formerly were in nonattainment for
 ozone as well as areas presently in
nonattainment for ozone. This action
will give States the flexibility to use
the RFG program in their maintenance
plans and as contingency measures for
those areas that have been redesignated
to attainment status, but are in need
of ozone controls to maintain that
status.

          Abstract:  This action would facilitate
          fulfillment of two statutory
          requirements; the extension of the no-
          venting prohibition to all  refrigerants
          under section 608 and the section 609
          requirement that the term refrigerant,

          substitute refrigerants. The action
          would extend the applicable current
          requirements of the motor vehicle air-
          conditioning rule to the substitute
          refrigerants. This would require
          recovery and recycling of these

                                                under the MVAC rule. It would also
                                                require approved recycling equipment
                                                and specific certifications of equipment
                                                and technicians. The MVAC refrigerant

3757. PROTECTION OF
STRATOSPHERIC OZONE:
SUPPLEMENTAL RULE REGARDING
A RECYCLING STANDARD UNDER
SECTION 608
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7401 et seq,
section 608
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 82, subpart F
Legal Deadline: Other, Statutory, May
15, 1995.
The current rule sunsets the
reclamation standard after May 15,
1995. Industry is requesting a change
to that sunset, which would require a
final rule by that 5/15/95 date.
Abstract: The current rule sunsets the
requirement that a reclamation standard
be met, as of May 1, 1995. Several
members of the regulated community
have approached EPA requesting that
the requirement not be sunsetted or
that it be replaced with a somewhat
less stringent standard. This
amendment will incorporate a level of
continued required reclamation and/or
recycling standard that the majority of
the affected industry agrees is
beneficial in order to encourage
compliance.

 HAZARDOUS WASTE  GENERATORS;
 ORGANIC AIR EMISSION STANDARDS
 FOR TANKS,  SURFACE
 IMPOUNDMENTS, AND CONTAINERS
 Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant.
 Major under 5 USC 801.
 Legal Authority: RCRA 3002 and RCRA
 3004
Date    FR Cite    Legal Deadline: None
                  Abstract: These standards were
                  promulgated on December 6,1994 and
                  will be effective on June 6,1996. The
                  final standards control organic air
                  emissions from hazardous waste TSDF
                  and generator sites. These emissions
                  have been shown to contribute greatly
                  to ground-level ozone formation and to
                  cancer incidence among exposed
                  populations.
                  Following promulgation, several
                  affected sources contacted the EPA for
                  clarification on certain requirements of
                  the final standards and to dispute the
                  necessity of certain technical
                  requirements. The EPA has reviewed
                  the final provision to determine
                  whether the intended requirements are
                  correctly conveyed in the final rule
                  language.
                  The EPA has identified certain
                  provisions for which the published
                  language suggests a requirement that is
                  more stringent than our intent, and in
                  which the intended emission
                  reductions can be achieved with less
                  burdensome standards. The EPA
                  intends  to amend the final rule to
                  include  several revised provisions,
                  including the following: certain fixed-
                  roof tanks may be  equipped with
                  pressure relief devices that vent to the
atmosphere; containers may be vented
during loading and emptying
operations; a facility may comply with
the final rule using an implementation
schedule in several different
circumstances; and the frequency of
monitoring for certain equipment shall
be semi-annual rather than annual.
These amendments will be published
in two Federal Register notices; one for
clarifying amendments and one for
revisions. Any amendments published
by the action will be deregulatory and
will result in less extensive
requirements than the published rule.

 Abstract: The friction products source
 category includes any facility that
 manufactures or remanufactures friction
 products such as automobile brakes,
= brake pads, disk pads and clutch pads,
 including facilities that use non-
 nsbestiform mineral fibers and asbestos
                  replacement material. Hazardous air
                  pollutants (HAPs) are emitted from
                  solvents contained in the adhesives
                  used to bond the friction material to
                  the automobile part.

                  Owners/operators of friction products
                  facilities reported in 1992 that HAPs
                  are emitted above major source
                  thresholds (in excess of 10 tons per
                  year of a single HAP or 25 tons per
                  year of more than one HAP).
                  Specifically, the HAPs reported include
                  phenol, toluene, methyl chloroform,
                  and methylethylketone, four of the 189
                  HAPs, listed in section 112(b) of the
                  Clean Air Act (Act), as amended in
                  1990. Phenol is an extreme irritant, and
                  is toxic (lethal) via oral exposure;
                  toluene causes developmental effects,
                  central nervous system dysfunction,
                  attention deficits, and craniofacial and
                  limb anomalies; methyl ethyl ketone
and methyl chloroform (1, 1, 1 -
trichloroethane) are a mild irritants and
cause central nervous system
depression. These four HAPs are not
classifiable as to human
carcinogenicity. Owners/operators
reported that these particular HAPs are
emitted during heated processes such
as curing, bonding and debonding
processes.  It is expected that substantial
reductions in these emissions  can be
achieved at the "floor" levels of
controls under Section 112(b).

The Agency plans to collect current
information from owners/operators via
a voluntary submission through trade
association participation. Information
regarding business size, quantities of
pollutants, processes, air pollution
control devices, pollution prevention
practices and workplace practices in
the industry will be requested. Based

review time for antimicrobial
pesticides. The regulation will clarify
criteria for completeness of
applications, and will specify or refer
to a definition of the various classes
of antimicrobial pesticide use patterns
and the associated data and labeling
requirements that would be consistent
with the degree and type of risk
presented by each class. EPA 'will
evaluate the feasibility and cost-
effectiveness of various registration
process reforms, including registrant
certification, third-party certification by
laboratories and expansion of the
current notification procedures.

                    light-duty truck manufacturing

                    organic compound (VOC) emissions
                    from the coatings used by this industry.
                    The Agency will study the HAP and
                    VOC emitted by the industry and will

                    the statutory requirements for HAP
                    emission reduction (section 112 of the
                    Clean Air Act) and VOC emission
                    reduction (section 183(e) of the Clean

3801!. • FLATWOOD  PANELING
(SURFACE COATING) INTEGRATED
RULE
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Unfunded Mandates: Undetermined
Legal Authority: 42 USC 7401 et seq
CFR Citation: None
Legal Deadline: Final, Statutory,
November 15, 2000.
Abstract: This action will result in the
reduction of hazardous air pollutants
(HAP) emitted by the flatwood paneling
surface coating industry, and the
reduction of volatile organic compound
(VOG) emissions from coatings used by
these industry. The Agency will study
the various HAP and VOC pollutants
emitted by the industry and will
evaluate pollution prevention and
control techniques which can reduce
these emissions. Although separate
rulemakings will be required to meet
the statutory requirements for HAP
emission reduction (section 183(e) of
the Clean Air Act), the development of
the individual rules will be integrated
to maximize resources and avoid
duplication of data gathering efforts.

AGAINST SUPERFUND

Reinventing Government: This

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 proposes 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

3833. GRANTS FOR TECHNICAL
ASSISTANCE RULE REFORM - 40 CFR
PART 35 SUBPART M
Priority: Substantive,  Nonsignificant
Reinventing Government: This
rulemaking is part of the Reinventing
Government effort. It will revise text in
the CFR to reduce burden or
duplication, or streamline
requirements.
Legal Authority: 42 USC
9617(e)/CERCLA 117
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 35
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The proposed revisions to the
Technical Assistance Grants (TAG)
Rule contain four main components
that will simplify the application and
administrative processes. The first
component to the TAG Rule would
eliminate the condition that response
action be underway or scheduled to
begin for EPA to provide formal notice
that a grant may soon be awarded. TAG
eligibility would be triggered  once the
site is proposed  for listing on the NPL.
A second component would eliminate
the requirement that budget periods
may not exceed  3 years. Budget periods
would be negotiated with TAG
applicants so that they have flexibility
to synchronize the period of time
during which the recipient anticipates
having a technical advisor involved
with the schedule of work at a site.
A third  component would eliminate the
20 percent ceiling for administrative
costs of a grant so that recipients do
not need to differentiate between
programmatic and administrative cost.
This will reduce information collection
burden.  A fourth component to the
TAG Rule is the elimination of the
distinction between sole and multiple
applicants, since both must meet
identical criteria. The requirement that
the applicant demonstrate that there is
an actual or potential health threat
posed to group members by the site
would also be deleted since EPA
believes that there is a potential health
threat at all Superfund sites. EPA also
believes that all Superfund sites pose
potential economic and recreational
threats to adjacent communities, and
that there is no need for the applicant
to provide evidence of those threats.
Furthermore, EPA may already have
sufficient information from various
sources concerning the potential health,
economic, and recreational threats
posed by Superfund sites.

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 EPCRA; 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.

Abstract: The Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing
several modifications to provisions of
tho rule listing regulated substances
and threshold quantities under section
112(r) of the Clean Air act as Amended.
EPA is proposing to delete the category
of explosives listed by DOT as Division
1.1  from the list of regulated
substances. Flammable substances in
gasoline used as fuel and in naturally
occurring hydrocarbon mixtures prior
to initial processing are  proposed for
exemption under the threshold quantity
determinations. Modifications to the
definition of stationary source are
proposed to clarify the exemption  of
transportation and storage incident to
transportation and to clarify that
naturally occurring hydrocarbon
                    reservoirs are not stationary sources or
                    parts of stationary sources. EPA
                    proposes to clarify that 40 CFR part 68
                    does not apply to facilities located on
                    the Outer Continental Shelf. EPA
                    believes these changes will better focus
                    on the high hazard/high risk substances
                    and operations covered under the Risk
                    Management Program rule for
                    accidental release prevention. These
                    changes will reduce the number of
                    stationary sources subject to the
                    requirements of the risk management
                    program rule and decrease the burden
                    on the regulated community.

3838. • REVISION OF THE LOCAL
GOVERNMENT REIMBURSEMENT
REGULATION
Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant
Reinventing Government: This
rulemaking is part of the Reinventing
Government effort. It will eliminate
existing text in the CFR.
Legal Authority: 42 USC 9600
CFR Citation: 40 CFR 310
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: Local governments play an
important role in protecting human
health and the environment. Local
governments are usually the first
government representatives on the
scene of an environmental emergency
response action. They play a critical
role in carrying out temporary
emergency measures to prevent or
mitigate releases or threatened releases
of hazardous substances. Conducting
such measures has placed a significant
financial burden on local governments.
EPA is charged with alleviating that
burden by reimbursing governments for
certain emergency response activities.
The rules for reimbursement were
originally set forth by the Agency in
January of 1993. This rulemaking will
revise those rules by: 1) eliminating
several requirements that may broaden
the number of eligible local
governments and Indian Tribes; 2)
streamlining the application process;

and 3) reducing the burden on eligible
local governments and Indian Tribes.
There are a number of requirements
that may change with this rulemaking;
for example, EPA intends to eliminate
the requirement that the local
government contact the Agency within
24 hours. EPA will reduce the reporting
burden on applicants by requesting that
they certify in many cases rather than
demonstrate compliance with the
program requirements. The anticipated
impact of this action is to provide a
greater number of local governments
and Indian Tribes with easier access to
Federal funding, thereby improving
their ability to protect human health
and the environment.

EXEMPTIONS FOR CERTAIN
RADIONUCLIDE RELEASES

Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: This rule affects the
requirement in Superfund and the
Emergency Planning and Community
Right-to-Know Act that facilities
immediately report to State, local and
federal authorities the release of a
hazardous substances in an amount that
equals or exceeds a reportable quantity.
In 1989, the Environmental Protection
Agency CEP A) set reportable quantities
for radionuclides  (a category of
hazardous substances) by regulation. In
that same rule, EPA also established
four exemptions to the general
reporting requirement, to exclude from
it certain releases of naturally occurring
radionuclides for which the
government does not need reports.
These exemptions are for releases from:
(1) large land holdings; (2) disturbances
of land for purposes other than mining;
(3) the dumping of coal and coal ash
at utility and industrial facilities with
coal-fired boilers; and (4) coal and ash
piles at those facilities.
Later, a court ruled that the Agency had
promulgated the four exemptions
without giving the public opportunity
to comment. The Agency subsequently
provided the opportunity for public
notice and comment on these
exemptions. Based on those comments,
                                                       the Agency is now seeking further
                                                       comments on the possibility of
                                                       broadening the exemptions. Depending
                                                       upon the Agency's analysis of
                                                       comments received, it could in a final
                                                       rule, either reaffirm or modify the
                                                       exemptions. Modification of the
                                                       exemptions would further reduce the
                                                       burden on facilities which must report,

 Abstract: EPA is updating the quality
 assurance requirements in its
 Acquisition Regulation (EPAAR). The
 Agency relies on environmental
 measurement data in many of its
 activities, including regulatory
 development, the application of
 regulations (e.g., permitting,
 enforcement actions), and research
 programs. The Agency must be ensured
 that the data are of appropriate type
 and quality to support the proposed use
 (that data meet the needs for rule-
making, enforcement action, etc.) The
 extramural community has been using
the existing EPAAR QA requirements
 since 1984 and recognizes the need to
update these requirements to reflect the
current understanding of quality
systems.

 3856. CONSOLIDATION OF GOOD
 LABORATORY PRACTICE
 STANDARDS (GLPS) REGULATIONS
 CURRENTLY UNDER TSCA AND
 FIFRA INTO ONE RULE
 Priority: Info./Admin./Other
 Reinventing Government: This
 rulemaking is part of the Reinventing
 Government effort. It will revise text in
 the CFR to reduce burden or
 duplication, or streamline
 requirements.
 Legal Authority: 7 USC 136 et seq; 15
 USC 2601 et seq
 CFR Citation: 40 CFR 160; 40 CFR 792
 Legal Deadline: None
 Abstract: On November  29, 1983, EPA
 published Good Laboratory Practice
 Standards (GLPS) regulations intended
 to help ensure data integrity for studies
 required to support marketing and
 research permits under the Federal
 Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide
 Act (FIFRA) and the Toxic Substances
 Control Act (TSCA). These rules were
 last amended on August  17, 1989.
 GLPS data integrity measures can be
 applied to a wide variety of scientific
 studies. Although the TSCA and FIFRA
 GLPS contain identical provisions they
 were published as separate rules to
 account for statutory and program
 differences between TSCA and FIFRA,
 such as differences in records retention
 requirements. EPA believes it will be
 able to address the differences between
 TSCA and FIFRA, such as differences
 in records retention requirements. EPA
 believes it will be able to address the
 differences of those programs without
 duplicating the entire GLP standard in
 two places.
 This action is intended to consolidate
 EPA's GLPS into one rule. Program-
 specific requirements will be addressed
 in either separate sections of the
 consolidated rule, or in separate rules
 as is determined appropriate. This
 action is not intended to  change the
 requirements, applicability, or
enforceability of GLPS with respect to
 any statute.
EPA has received comments from
stakeholders regarding the
understandability of many aspects of
the GLPS, and over the years has issued
numerous clarifications. EPA believes
 that some clarifications, if included
 directly in the rule, would make the
 rule easier to understand and enhance
 compliance. Therefore, EPA intends to
 include such clarifications where
 appropriate in this rulemaking. Finally,
 in the interest of maintaining
 consistency between EPA's and Food
 and Drug Administration's regulations,
 EPA will determine any modifications
 that have occurred to the FDA GLP  rule
 and consider incorporation of such
 changes into the EPA rule. This action
 will serve to reduce the total regulatory
 text in the Code of Federal Regulations
 by an estimated ten pages, by
 consolidating 23 pages of text to
 approximately 13. In the process it will
 provide a generic GLP rule that may
 be used by other programs in the
 Agency.

decision makers and the public about
these procedures. In particular, the
Guidelines emphasize that risk
assessments will be conducted on a
case-by-case basis, giving full
consideration to all relevant scientific
information. This case-by-case
approach means that Agency experts
study scientific information on each
chemical under review and use the
most scientifically appropriate
interpretation to assess risk. The
Guidelines also stress that this
information will be fully presented in
Agency risk assessment documents, and
that Agency scientists will identify the
strengths and weaknesses of each
assessment by describing uncertainties,
assumptions, and limitations, as well  as
the scientific basis and rationale for
each assessment. They incorporate
current scientific thinking and sound
science policies based on evaluation of
the currently available information.

3859. GUIDELINES FOR CARCINOGEN
RISK ASSESSMENT
Priority: Info./Admin./Other
Legal Authority: Not applicable
CFR Citation: None
Legal Deadline: None
Abstract: The Agency will use these
guidelines to evaluate suspect
carcinogens in line with the policies
and procedures established in the
statutes administered by the EPA.
These guidelines revise and replace
EPA Guidelines for Carcinogen Risk
Assessment published at 51 FR 33992,
September 24, 1986. These guidelines
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 other
hand, innovation is necessary so the
Agency will base its decisions on
current scientific thinking. In balancing
these and other science policies, the
Agency relies on input from the general
scientific community through
established scientific peer review
processes. The guidelines incorporate
basic principles and science policies
based on evaluation of the currently
available information. The revisions
place increased emphasis on the role
of carcinogenic mechanisms in risk
assessment and clearer explication of
underlying assumptions in risk
assessment.
These Guidelines will have minimal to
no impact on small businesses or state,
local', and tribal governments.

          Abstract: In October 1992, Congress
          passed the FFCA which amended the

-------
            Federal Register / Vol.  61, No.  231 / Friday, November 29, 1996 / Unified Agenda     63235
EPA—GENERAL
                                                                     Final Rule  Stage
Resource Conservation and Recovery
Act (RCRA). The FFCA provided EPA
with administrative order authority.
When issuing these orders, EPA will
use the 40 CFR section 22 hearing
procedures. In the part 22 procedures,
Sections 31 and 32, the Environmental
Appeals Board (EAB) issues a final
order. However, in the FFCA, Congress
stated that no order would be final
until the Federal agency has an
opportunity to confer with the
Administrator. As the procedures are
currently structured, the Federal agency
                  only has the opportunity to confer after
                  appealing to the EAB. Thus, there is
                  a direct contradiction between the rules
                  promulgated and the FFCA. We would
                  propose an amendment to state that, in
                  the case of a Federal agency, an EAB
                  order is not final for purposes of the
                  FFCA.

     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  Regulatory  Plan and  the
Unified Agenda.
     The  following  index  lists  the regulatory  actions  in this  joint  publication  that  agencies  believe  may
have 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 Information Service Center's  Introduction to  The Regulatory Plan and  the Unified  Agenda

                                                GOVERNMENT LEVELS

     Executive Order 12866 entitled "Regulatory Planning  and Review" (October 4,  1993;  58  FR 51735)  directs
agencies to  assess the  effects  of Federal regulations  on State,  local,  and tribal  governments.  In  addition,
Executive  Order  12875 entitled  "Enhancing  the  Intergovernmental Partnership"  (October  26,  1993;  58  FR
58093) directs  agencies to re.duce the  imposition of unfunded mandates upon State,  local, and tribal govern-
ments. In  keeping with these  efforts, agencies  include  in their submissions  for The Regulatory Plan  and
the Unified Agenda  information on  whether their regulatory actions have  an effect on  various  levels  of
government.
     The  following  index  lists  the r,egulatory actions  in  this joint  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  Service  Center's  Introduction to  The  Regulatory Plan  and  the  Unified Agenda in Part  II  of
this issue.
