40 CFR Parts 61 and 63

[EPA-R01-OAR-2012-0430; FRL-9768-8]


Approval of the Clean Air Act, Section 112(l), Authority for 
Hazardous Air Pollutants: Asbestos Management and Control; State of New 
Hampshire Department of Environmental Services

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: EPA proposes to approve the New Hampshire Department of 
Environmental Services (``NH DES'') request to implement and enforce 
the readopted and re-codified ``Env-Sw 2100: Management and Control of 
Asbestos Disposal Sites not Operated after July 9, 1981,'' and the 
amended ``Env-A 1801-1807.01: Asbestos Management and Control'' 
(amended Asbestos Management Rules), in place of National Emission 
Standard for Asbestos (``Asbestos NESHAP''). This approval would make 
the NH DES's amended Asbestos Management Rules federally enforceable.

2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Final Rules Section of this Federal 
Register, EPA is approving the State of New Hampshire's Section 112(l) 
submittal as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the 
Agency views this as a noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no 
adverse comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in 
the direct final rule. If no adverse comments are received in response 
to this final rule, no further activity is contemplated. If EPA 
receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn and 
all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent final 
rule based on this proposed rule. EPA will not institute a second 
comment period. Any parties interested in commenting on this action 
should do so at this time. Please note that if EPA receives adverse 
comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this rule, and if 
that provision may be severed from the remainder of the rule, EPA may 
adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of 
an adverse comment.
    For additional information, see the direct final rule which is 
located in the Rules Section of this Federal Register.

    Dated: December 19, 2012.

Acting Regional Administrator, EPA New England.
