Regulatory Agenda

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice.

_______________________________________________________________________

SUMMARY: EPA's regulatory agenda is published each April and October. 
It serves as a semiannual summary of current and projected rulemakings, 
reviews of existing regulations, and Agency actions completed since the 
previous publication of the agenda. By providing the public with 
current and advance information about pending regulatory activities, 
the Agency hopes to encourage more effective public participation in 
the regulatory process.

ADDRESSES: To be placed on the mailing list for future agendas, contact 
Bridgette Dent, Regulatory Development Branch (2136), EPA, 401 M Street 
SW., Washington, DC 20460, (202) 260-5475.

    If you have suggestions to improve this publication 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 detailed information about 
a particular entry, the name, address, and telephone number of an 
agency contact who is most familiar with the subject matter is listed 
for each action.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The agenda provides the title, an abstract, 
legal authority, CFR reference, any analysis EPA is preparing, contact 
person, and schedule for completing the action for each regulation 
under review. The following statutes are covered in the agenda:

Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA)

Atomic Energy Act (AEA)

Clean Air Act (CAA) and Clean Air Act as Amended (1990)

Clean Water Act (CWA)

Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act 
(CERCLA)

Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA)

Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetics Act (FFDCA)

Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA)

Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act (MPRSA)

National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)

Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)

Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA)

Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA)

Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)

Water Quality Act of 1987 (WQA)

General (Other acts, including grant and procurement regulations that 
apply to several program areas.)

    EPA's agenda also illustrates the Agency's compliance with 
various mandates. Included among these is the requirement of 
Executive Order 12866 to submit the Agency's priority regulatory 
activities for inclusion in the Administration's annual 
``Regulatory Plan.'' Those priority activities are noted in the 
``Significance'' section of the rule entry.

    EPA's agenda entries also provide evidence of compliance with 
the other requirements of Executive Order 12866. Each entry 
indicates if it will be subject to OMB review; an indication of 
``Undetermined'' generally means that discussions are still 
underway between EPA and OMB as to whether it will be reviewed 
under the Executive order. Additionally, there is an indication if 
a rulemaking is considered ``economically significant'' under the 
Executive order. ``Economically significant'' rules are those that 
``have an annual effect on the economy of $100 million or more or 
adversely affect in a material way the economy, a sector of the 
economy, productivity, competition, jobs, the environment, public 
health or safety, or State, local, or tribal governments or 
communities'' and require an economic assessment. This compliance 
is also noted in the ``Significance'' section of each entry.

    EPA also seeks 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.

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) requires the 
identification of those regulations which are likely to have a 
``significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities'' (i.e., small governments, small businesses, and small 
nonprofit organizations). Under the requirements of the Act, such 
regulations must be subjected to a ``regulatory flexibility 
analysis.'' This analysis must consider the likely economic impacts 
on small entities, as well as any significant alternatives to the 
rule which accomplish the objectives of applicable statutes and 
which minimize significant economic impacts of the rulemaking on 
small entities.

    In April 1992, EPA adopted a policy which exceeds the 
requirements of the RFA (this policy applies to rulemakings that 
were initiated on or after April 7, 1992). For rulemakings subject 
to this policy, EPA will perform a regulatory flexibility analysis 
if the rule is likely to have any economic impact on any small 
entity. For rulemakings not subject to this policy (i.e., initiated 
prior to April 9, 1992), a regulatory flexibility analysis will be 
conducted only if the rulemaking will meet the RFA's standard of 
having a ``significant impact on a substantial number of small 
entities.''

    Each rulemaking listed in this agenda indicates in the 
``Analysis'' section whether EPA expects to conduct a regulatory 
flexibility analysis. If EPA believes small entities will be 
affected by a rulemaking, this is indicated under the ``Small 
Entities Affected'' and/or the ``Government Levels Affected'' 
section of the summary for each listed rule. EPA invites public 
comment regarding EPA's assessment of which of the listed 
rulemakings are 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 EPA believes may have effects on small businesses, small 
governmental jurisdictions, or small organizations.)

    The RFA requires that existing regulations that have a 
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities are to be reviewed within 10 years of promulgation of the 
regulations. As part of that process, EPA invites public comment 
identifying any existing EPA rules believed to have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. Comments 
should be provided in the following format:

 Title

 Authorizing statute and CFR citation

 Description of economic effects on small entities, especially 
on the commenting person or organization

 Recommendations for changes

Any additional detailed comments or data are welcome.

    When the EPA completes its review of an existing rule, it 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 of the regulations upon a substantial 
number of small entities.

    The agenda is organized by statute and ordered numerically 
within each statutory area. Entries within each statute are divided 
into four categories: (1) Prerule, (2) proposed rule, (3) final 
rule, and (4) 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 this entry 
appears in an agenda.

I. Prerulemakings

    Prerulemaking actions are activities intended to determine 
whether to initiate rulemaking. These activities 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 pre-regulatory policy 
proposals.

II. Proposed and Final Rules

    This section includes all significant EPA regulations. EPA 
lists regulations in this category of the agenda 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).

    The Agency has attempted to list all regulations and regulatory 
reviews except those considered as minor, routine, or repetitive 
actions. There is no legal significance to the inadvertent omission 
of an item from the listing. The agenda reflects dates for actions 
on each item; these dates are estimates that should not be 
construed as an Agency commitment to act on or by the date shown. 
The Administrator of EPA will be reviewing the items contained in 
this agenda over the next 6 months. Items in this agenda may be 
deleted, or new items may be added, as a result of that review.

III. Completed Actions

    These are actions that appeared in the previous agenda, which 
EPA is deleting because they are completed or are no longer under 
consideration for rulemaking.

Significance:

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 185; 40 CFR 186

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The Agency is proposing to revoke food additive tolerances 
for a number of pesticide carcinogens in processed food because of the 
Delaney clause. The Delaney clause prohibits chemicals in processed 
foods that induce cancer in man or lab animals. This rulemaking is the 
result of a decision by the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit 
which ruled application of a strict interpretation of the Delaney 
clause. EPA will issue these proposals in a phased manner to facilitate 
science and policy issues and comments.

Abstract: Between April 15, 1994 and October 20, 1997, the Worker 
Protection Standard (WPS) allows agricultural workers to accumulate 15 
separate days of entry into a treated area before they must receive EPA 
approved safety training. Due to this grace period, a frequent change 
of employers may expose these workers to pesticides for extended 
periods without adequate training. The WPS also requires the retraining 
of agricultural workers at least every 5 years. Retraining may not be 
frequent enough to be effective. Public comment will be requested 
concerning these two issues, and possibly other issues which might be 
identified.

Abstract: EPA will make clear that the substances that plants produce 
to protect themselves against pests and disease are pesticides under 
the FIFRA section 2 definition of ``pesticide.'' 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.

Abstract: This rule would require that pesticide total release foggers 
be labeled with additional flammability precautionary statements 
(including possibly a graphic symbol), and more precise use directions. 
Total release foggers have been implicated in a number of fires and 
explosions because of their flammable propellants. The labeling of 
these products has been determined to be inadequate to mitigate this 
potential hazard.

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.

use of any derivation of the terminology ``purify/purification'' in 
labeling or advertising. Only products able to meet the standard for 
microbiological purification would be permitted to be labeled or

condition of legal sale and use. This regulation would establish SMPs 
as a new regulatory requirement for those pesticides; absent an EPA-
approved state plan specifying risk-reduction measures, use of the 
chemical would be prohibited. The rule would also specify procedures 
and deadlines for development, approval and implementation of SMPs.

Economically significant: Undetermined
Regulatory Plan entry: Undetermined

Legal Authority:  7 USC 136w/FIFRA 25(b)

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 152.20

Abstract: Under FIFRA, EPA regulates antimicrobial products, including 
sterilants, used to control microorganisms on treated environmental 
surfaces. Specifically, EPA regulates all sterilant products typically 
used on invasive medical devices and other critical devices/surfaces. 
Under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), the Food and 
Drug Administration (FDA) has jurisdiction over chemical germicides 
used as sterilants for medical devices. FIFRA section 25(b) allows EPA 
to exempt from FIFRA a pesticide which is adequately regulated by 
another federal agency. In accordance with a Memorandum of 
Understanding signed on June 4, 1993, EPA and FDA propose to eliminate 
the redundant regulation of these sterilants. EPA proposes to exempt 
from FIFRA regulation and to transfer sole jurisdiction over these 
sterilants to FDA.

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 152

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: Pesticides which are substances or mixtures intended to 
control or mitigate pests, are regulated under FIFRA and are required 
to be registered prior to sale or distribution in the United States. 
This requires pre-market review of scientific data to ensure that the 
pesticide use will not cause unreasonable adverse effects on human 
health and the environment. Some substances that fit the definition of 
a pesticide may be widely used in foods or for other non-pesticidal 
purposes, e.g., natural cedar wood. These pesticides are considered 
innocuous or are otherwise of a character that do not require 
registration. EPA proposes to exempt appropriate pesticides (to be 
cited in the proposal) from registration and develop criteria for 
future pesticides that may qualify for exemption from FIFRA 
requirements. A proposal to exempt natural cedar products is the first 
rule.

endangered species. EPA will develop and implement an endangered 
species pesticide labeling program designed to conserve federally 
listed species and to minimize the impacts to persons who use 
pesticides. The program will include development of species maps and 
pesticide use limitation bulletins to be distributed as an extension of 
pesticide labels. Pesticides that are determined to cause harm to 
endangered species will require label changes which display 
precautionary statements and directions on how to obtain county 
bulletins. EPA will coordinate the program with the U.S. Fish and 
Wildlife Service of the Department of Interior and the U.S. Department 
of Agriculture.

Abstract: The current crop grouping regulations allow establishment of 
pesticide tolerances for multiple related crops based upon data for a 
representative set of crops. EPA has published a proposal to revise the 
crop grouping regulations by providing additional options for crop 
grouping. These revisions would promote greater utilization of crop 
grouping for tolerance-setting purposes. Revisions to the crop grouping 
scheme that would increase its utilization will reduce the regulatory 
burden associated with residue data development in support of pesticide 
tolerances and registration.

Section 112 of the CAA indirectly imposes deadlines on this test rule, 
inasmuch as the test data is needed to carry out programs and

Abstract: A multi-chemical endpoint test rule will require the testing 
of many chemicals for a specific effect or endpoint. 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 testing while conserving Agency resources. EPA is proposing 
health effects testing under TSCA section 4 in support of programs and 
activities required under section 112 of the Clean Air Act (CAA), 
governing Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs). Section 112 of the CAA 
directs EPA to determine the risk to health and the environment 
remaining after application of a technology-based standard to major and 
area sources. Section 112 also sets forth a mechanism for revising and 
modifying the statutory list of 189 HAPs under section 112(b), 
requirements for an accidental release control program, requirements 
for an urban air toxics program, a mechanism for ranking of hazards for 
offsets, and requirements for Great Waters studies. In order to 
implement these and other programs and requirements under section 112, 
EPA must identify the health and (cont)

Abstract: The Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) receives thousands of 
reports each year with release, transfer, and other data indicating 
zero or low volumes. Since EPA is pursuing a vigorous expansion plan 
for both chemicals and new sources, the Agency believes that it is also 
appropriate to consider the development of a regulatory amendment to 
provide relief to TRI submitters, while not significantly affecting the 
type and availability of data that satisfy the right-to-know goals of 
the law. This action is also in response to two petitions received by 
the Agency, one from the Small Business Administration (SBA), and the 
other from the American Feed Industries Association (AFIA). The SBA 
petition asks EPA to exempt reporters who report releases and transfers 
of less than 5,000 pounds, and the AFIA petition asks EPA to exempt the 
feed industry SIC code from the rule coverage because of the low volume 
releases reported and the lack of risk they contend those releases pose 
to the community. EPA is considering several options for a small source 
exemption, primarily focusing on the establishment of a volume 
threshold, (cont)

Abstract: Action is being taken in order to expand the reporting 
universe of the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI), pursuant to authority 
under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) 
section 313. Additional industry sectors, as defined by SIC code, would 
be subject to the same reporting requirements as are currently 
reporting facilities. This increase in the number of reporting 
facilities will significantly enhance the public's right-to-know about 
toxic chemicals released in their communities. The additional data 
included in the TRI will provide a more comprehensive portrait of toxic 
emissions in the U.S., thus enabling Federal, state, and local agencies 
to have adequate data for use in determining appropriate policies and 
regulations.

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.

Abstract: EPA is proposing to amend the Asbestos Abatement Projects, 
Worker Protection Rule (WPR), by incorporating certain revisions to the 
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) asbestos workplace 
standards issued since EPA's WPR was promulgated in 1987. The proposal 
would generally extend the coverage provided under the OSHA Asbestos 
Standard for Construction to State and local government employees who 
are not covered by OSHA or EPA-approved State plans. It would also 
extend coverage provided under OSHA's Asbestos Standard for general 
industry for brake and clutch repair to such employees, and would 
clarify that they include prisoners and students employed by the State 
and/or local government. EPA also proposes to delegate authority to 
grant or deny State exclusions under the WPR to EPA Regional 
Administrators and to add compliance and enforcement requirements for 
State exclusions. In addition, EPA is proposing to amend the Asbestos-
Containing Materials in Schools Rule by reloading certain worker 
protection provisions into the WPR.

Abstract: EPA is using its authority under TSCA section 4 to require 
health effects testing on 11 chemical substances to fulfill data needs 
identified by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry 
(ATSDR), the National Toxicology Program (NTP) and EPA pursuant to 
CERCLA section 104(i). ATSDR is charged with developing ``Toxicological 
Profiles'' for hazardous substances most commonly found at Superfund 
NPL sites and which pose a significant potential threat to health, 
identifying data gaps and needs, and developing a testing program. 
ATSDR's data needs underwent a process of review by NTP and EPA in 
order to avoid duplicative testing. In addition, various other federal 
agencies were given an opportunity to indicate their interest in 
testing specific endpoints for chemicals on the list. This health 
effects research program will supplement the substance-specific 
information needs of the public and the scientific community and will 
supply exposure and toxicity information which will assist in the 
development of ATSDR health assessments on Superfund NPL sites.

Significance:
Subject to OMB review: Undetermined

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., 
bioaccumulation. 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 testing while 
conserving on Agency resources. The multi-chemical rule for persistent 
bioaccumulators will obtain environmental effects and chemical fate 
data on chemicals that are believed to persist and bioaccumulate in the 
environment. Emerging environmental concerns have focused on sediments 
contaminated with chemicals which are persistent (do not degrade) and 
bioaccumulate (may enter the human food chain). In addition, such 
chemicals are also typically toxic to aquatic and terrestrial 
organisms. EPA has identified over 30 chemicals for possible inclusion 
in the bioaccumulator test rule.

lead (Pb) present an unreasonable risk to human health and the 
environment. The investigation will involve examination of the 
potential sources of human or other exposure to lead throughout the 
life cycle. Based on information gathered EPA may propose TSCA section 
6(a) rules to control existing or new uses of Pb which pose an 
unreasonable risk to human health or the environment, and to explore 
the desirability and feasibility of discouraging overall consumption of 
Pb in general. In particular, EPA has begun regulatory investigation on 
three uses of lead: solder in drinking water systems, plumbing 
fixtures, and fishing sinkers.

Abstract: The Agency is investigating the need to reduce residential 
exposure to formaldehyde, an irritating gas, that is emitted by urea-
formaldehyde (UF) resins contained in pressed wood building materials 
and products using regulatory and non-regulatory options. UF pressed 
woods are used to build conventional and manufactured homes and to 
construct cabinets and furniture. In 1992, the Agency supported 
voluntary efforts by industry to reduce emissions from UF particleboard 
flooring products and to codify such reductions in a voluntary national 
consensus product standard. The Agency is also: (1)implementing an 
exposure testing program to characterize formaldehyde concentrations in 
newly built homes and to determine how long high concentrations of the 
gas persist, (2)preparing information on formaldehyde for public 
dissemination, and (3)supporting research to evaluate the effectiveness 
of furniture product emission standards for reducing formaldehyde in 
office buildings. Activities are being coordinated with the Department 
of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the consumer Product Safety 
Commission (CPSC). Regulations under Toxic Substances Control Act

Abstract: The ANPRM solicits comments on alternate disposal methods for 
non-liquid PCBs and invites public input on modifications to the PCB 
disposal regulations. In February 1990, several parties petitioned EPA 
under Section 21 of TSCA to amend the regulations at 40 CFR 761, which 
govern the disposal of PCBs, and issue an interpretive rule or 
declaratory order construing the existing PCB disposal regulations. In 
responding to the petition, EPA agreed to initiate a regulatory 
investigation to determine whether or not to amend the disposal 
regulations. After analyzing the comments received in response to the 
ANPRM, a proposed rule will be drafted which will also address 
alternative disposal methods for newly identified scenarios such as 
large volume solids; mixed wastes such as PCB/radioactive wastes; and 
other issues, such as disposal of household wastes, small capacitors, 
and used paints. This notice will also solicit 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. Finally, this rule incorporates a reproposal of the 
April 6, 1990 proposed rule (cont)

Abstract: The original Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) chemical list 
consisted of 320 chemicals and chemical categories. In an effort to 
provide the public with a broader picture of chemicals that will have 
to submit information for the Toxics Release in their communities, EPA 
is expanding the original TRI chemical list. On January 12, 1994 (59 FR 
1788), EPA published a proposed rule to add 313 chemicals and chemical 
categories to the TRI chemical list. Of the 313 chemicals and chemical 
categories proposed, there are approximately 160 pesticide active 
ingredients. The chemicals and chemical categories being proposed were 
selected from numerous other regulatory lists and meet the criteria for 
human health and environmental toxicity in addition is extremely toxic 
to aquatic organisms, EPCRA section 313(d)(2). In addition, the 
chemicals passed a production volume screen to ensure that reports 
would be received if the substance is added to the TRI chemical list.

Significance:
Subject to OMB review: Undetermined

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 on 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 for neurotoxicity testing will obtain 
base set neurotoxicity testing of ten high 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-chemical rule.

Legal Authority:  15 USC 2604/TSCA 5; 15 USC 2607/TSCA 8

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 704; 40 CFR 721

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: EPA has instituted a program to regulate the commercial 
development of new chemicals that 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 which became effective on October 12, 1989, EPA will 
identify such new chemicals and publish them in a batch SNUR 6-12 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.

3736. CHEMICAL SPECIFIC SIGNIFICANT NEW USE RULES (SNURS) TO EXTEND 
PROVISIONS OF SECTION 5(E) ORDERS

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.

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: This action will amend the PMN rules (40 CFR 720 to 723) 
under Section 5 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to conform 
to current policy needs. These changes are necessary to increase 
efficiency and incorporate proposed program improvements. They are 
expected to reduce the administrative burdens/cost of the New Chemicals 
Program and the overall number of Section 5 submissions while 
maintaining an effective and environmentally sound program. EPA has 
identified ``low-risk'' categories that meet certain established 
criteria and can be screened out of the full PMN review process at an 
early date based on low health/environmental concern or low exposure 
scenarios. EPA would like to reduce the burden to PMN submitters and 
maximize the efficiency and resources of the program by modifying the 
rule to reduce reporting requirements for low-risk categories. This 
would enable the Agency to reduce the number of Section 5 submissions 
and concentrate its resources on PMNs with potential health or 
environmental concerns.

The Consent Decree between EPA, EDF, and NWF signed July 27, 1988, 
requires that EPA make best efforts to issue a final rule by November 
30, 1992.

Abstract: The objective of this project is to reduce the unreasonable 
risks posed by dioxins and furans in bleached wood pulp and paper mill 
industrial sludge. In response to a July 1988 Consent Decree with the 
Environmental Defense Fund and the National Wildlife Federation, EPA 
announced on April 30, 1990, its schedule for a proposed rule under the 
Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), addressing the practice of 
industrial sludge land application, including mine reclamation and 
distribution/marketing. The Consent Decree required that this rule be 
proposed by April 30, 1991, and that EPA make its best efforts to issue 
a final rule by November 30, 1992. The proposed rule was published on 
May 10, 1992 at 58FR 21802. The analysis of new data received during 
the public comment period and by the Office of Water under section 308 
of the Clean Water Act may require an additional comment period and 
delay promulgation of the final rule. On December 14, 1992, EPA 
informed EDF and NWF of the status of its efforts to evaluate and 
control risks from the land application of sludge produced from the

ABSTRACT CONT: and paper mills using chlorine and chlorine-derivative 
bleaching processes. It is EPA's position that following this 
notification, EPA has fulfilled its obligations under the settlement 
for the sludge rule and is no longer subject to court supervision 
regarding those obligations. EPA's Office of Water and Office of Air 
Quality Planning and Standards are developing integrated effluent 
guidelines and emission standards for the pulp and paper industry. In 
light of these proceedings and to promote multi-media pollution 
prevention the Agency has chosen to defer the decision on promulgation 
of the final land application rule to take into account the effect of 
the process changes under consideration for these rules on the 
resulting leels of dioxin and furan contamination in the sludge. Once 
this determination has been made, the Agency will reevaluate the risk 
from sludge land application and will be able to choose, if necessary, 
the appropriate regulatory or nonregulatory mechanism to address the 
situation. The Agency expects to make this determination in 1995.

Abstract: On October 2, 1991, EPA proposed a regulation of acrylamide 
and NMA grouts based on the unreasonable risk associated with their 
usage. EPA's proposed rule would prohibit the manufacture, distribution 
in commerce, and use of acrylamide grout; and would prohibit all uses 
of NMA grout, except its use for sewer line repair. The proposed rule 
would also prohibit, after a period of three years, the manufacture and 
distribution in commerce of NMA grout for any purpose, and the use of 
NMA grout for sewer line repair. EPA will review the public comments 
and develop a final rule.

3743. POLYCHLORINATED BIPHENYLS (PCBS) TRANSFORMER RECLASSIFICATION RULE

Significance:
Subject to OMB review: Undetermined

Legal Authority:  15 USC 2605/TSCA 6(e)

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 761

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: This rule would relax the regulatory requirements for 
reclassifying PCB transformers to a lower regulatory status by 
modifying 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 required 
temperature, but still reduce PCB concentrations and that safety risks 
to employees and to the general public occur in mandating the continued 
adherence to the current regulations.

Legal Authority:  15 USC 2646/TSCA 6

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 763, app C to subpart E

Legal Deadline:  Final, Statutory, November 28, 1992.

Abstract: The Asbestos School Hazard Abatement Reauthorization Act 
(ASHARA) amended TSCA to require that EPA revise its asbestos model 
accreditation plan to extend training and accreditation requirements to 
include persons performing certain asbestos-related work in public and 
commercial buildings, to increase the minimum number of training hours 
required for accreditation purposes and to effect other changes 
necessary to implement the amendments. This action will increase 
regulatory costs for the owners and managers of public and commercial 
building, but will also reduce asbestos exposures in these buildings.

processors of listed chemical substances and mixtures. In response to 
public comments, EPA is considering revision of the CAIR to: establish 
exemptions for small and de minimis volumes; refine trade name 
reporting requirements; reduce certain advance substantiation 
requirements for Confidential Business Information (CBI) claims; and 
require automatic reporting for substances added to CAIR by the 
Interagency Testing Committee (ITC).

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 (cont)

contaminants from a list of 31 pollutants listed in a Consent Decree 
dated May 25, 1993, will be proposed for regulation in Round II. Then, 
EPA will develop regulations that will establish requirements for 
sewage sludge when the sludge is applied to the land for a beneficial 
purpose, when the sludge is disposed on land by placing it on surface 
disposal sites, or when sewage sludge is incinerated.

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The 1987 amendments to the Clean Water Act (the Act) added 
section 303(c)(2)(B). This section essentially provides for the 
adoption of specific numerical criteria for all toxic pollutants which 
could reasonably be expected to interfere with designated uses. At the 
initiation of the rulemaking resulting in the National Toxics Rule, New 
Mexico was determined to be in compliance with section 303(c)(2)(B) of 
the Act. On October 8, 1991, New Mexico adopted revisions to its 
standards which affected compliance with acute toxicity criteria which 
allow biomonitoring to supersede numerical criteria. In the preamble of 
the National Toxics Rule, New Mexico was identified as no longer being 
in compliance, and the potential for separate rulemaking was noted. EPA 
Region 6 disapproved the New Mexico standards, as the State's standards 
were no longer in compliance with section 303(c)(2)(B) of the Act. EPA 
Region 6 will promulgate language necessary to bring New Mexico into 
compliance with section 303(c)(2)(B) of the Act.

Hudson Riverkeeper and others have filed suit in the US District Court 
for the southern district of New York to compel EPA to re- promulgate 
regulations under sec 316(b). Negotiations are ongoing

Abstract: In response to the increasing number of requests from Region 
and States for guidance on implementing section 316(b) of the Clean 
Water Act (the Act), the Office of Water plans to conduct a 3-year data 
collection and analysis phase to quantify the adverse impacts from 
cooling water intake structures and the efficacy of current and 
prototype control mechanisms. Upon conclusion of the data collection 
and analysis, the workgroup will develop options for regulatory 
development (type of regulation, setting a performance standard for 
decision criteria) and then proceed along a standard regulatory 
development path to final regulation signature. This initiative is 
particularly significant since the current lack of national standards 
for intake structures allows situations where significant percentages 
of aquatic communities have been severely impacted either by 
entrainment or impingement at the cooling water intake. This regulation 
is needed to establish the technological control floor for minimizing 
adverse impacts (as stated in section 316(b) of the Act), to encourage 
the development of better methods to reduce adverse impacts, and to 
increase consistency in the application of section 316(b).

Abstract: This action would revise the current NPDES Permit Application 
regulations and forms. Standard Form A (municipal wastewater) and Short 
Form A (municipal wastewater), reflect amendments to the Clean Water 
Act and changes in program requirements and emphasis. The new 
application form must replace the old versions and enable permit 
writers to obtain more pertinent information regarding expected 
discharges and the environmental impact of proposed operations. This 
action would also develop a sewage sludge permit application form (Form 
2S) and revise permit application regulations to foster the issuance of 
permits implementing the Agency's standards for sludge use or disposal. 
Finally, this action will revise the NPDES regulations to require all 
applicants to submit this information to the appropriate (state or 
Federal) permitting authority.

Abstract: The Administrator, in consultation with the Secretary of 
Transportation, is developing regulations which may include the 
following: (1) requiring waste sources, receiving facilities and 
vessels to assure that municipal or commercial waste will not be 
deposited into coastal waters during loading, offloading, and 
transport; (2) requiring the adoption by each responsible party of a 
manual identifying procedures to prevent, report, and clean up deposits 
of waste into coastal waters; and (3) if the Administrator determines 
that tracking systems are required to assure adequate enforcement of 
laws preventing the deposit of waste into coastal waters, requiring 
installation of the appropriate systems within eighteen months after 
the Administrator makes that determination. Benefits resulting from 
regulation will be reduction of municipal and commercial waste 
deposited into coastal waters.

Abstract: Title VI of the Clean Water Act (CWA) outlines broad 
eligibilities under the State Revolving Fund Program (SRF), 
particularly with respect to the funding of activities included in 
approved State Nonpoint Source Management Programs prepared pursuant to 
section 319 of the CWA. Some States have recognized a potential 
opportunity to fund various public projects which may have only 
indirect water quality benefits. The Agency is reviewing potential 
options for clarifying the range and type of facilities which may be 
appropriately funded under the SRF program consistent with the 
objectives of the CWA. EPA will examine these policy options and 
develop guidance for the States.

We are currently in settlement negotiations, and expect to reach 
agreement on a December 15, 1994 date for signature of the final rule.

Abstract: On December 15, 1993, the Administrator signed a notice 
proposing federal water quality standards for the San Francisco Bay/
Delta estuary. EPA had been sued by numerous environmental groups to 
propose such standards following its disapproval of portions of the 
State's water quality standards in September 1991. EPA Region 9 
disapproved the State's standards because they were not adequate to 
protect the designated fish and wildlife uses of the estuary, as 
required by section 303 of the Clean Water Act. EPA took this action in 
conjunction with rulemakings by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and 
National Marine Fisheries under the Endangered Species Act, all of 
which were published together on January 6, 1994.

Abstract: EPA Region IV disapproved portions of Florida's water quality 
standards in October 1991. The Clean Water Act requires EPA to promptly 
promulgate replacement standards when a State fails to revise State 
standards to comply. This rulemaking will establish Federal standards 
to replace portions of the State's antidegradation policy and will 
serve to delete their portions of the policy.

treatment levels and additional requirements for pretreatment programs 
for certain waiver applicants. In addition, the Agency is considering 
revising the regulations to address more specifically procedures and 
requirements for the renewal of secondary treatment waivers. The 
revised regulations will affect only the limited number of municipal 
treatment plants which met the 1982 statutory deadline for applying for 
a secondary treatment waiver.

Abstract: Approximately 1100 cities nationwide have combined sewer 
systems that overflow resulting in discharges of raw sewage, industrial 
and commercial wastewaters and stormwaters. Combined Sewer Overflows 
(CSO's) are responsible for significant public health and water quality 
problems such as beach closures and shellfish bed closures. CSOs are 
point source discharges that are subject to the technology and water 
quality requirements of the Clean Water Act (CWA) and are required to 
be permitted under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System 
(NPDES) under Section 402 of the Clean Water Act. This CSO policy 
establishes a common framework and provides guidance to cities with 
CSOs, NPDES Authorities and water quality standards authorities on how 
to bring CSOs into compliance with the CWA and existing EPA 
regulations. Implementation of the CSO Control Policy is within the 
existing authorities of the Act and EPA regulations. The Policy, in 
part, is the result of extensive discussions and negotiations of the 
key stakeholders (e.g., municipal governments, environmental groups, 
and States).

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: EPA, Army Corps of Engineers, and Soil Conservation Service 
proposed to incorporate portions of the Federal Manual for Identifying

the agencies' wetland protection programs. These portions reflect 
revisions to the manual proposed on August 4, 1991 (56 FR 40446). Since 
publication of the proposed revisions, EPA and the Corps have adopted 
the Corps of Engineers 1987 Wetlands Delineation Manual and the 
National Academy of Sciences (NAS) has been funded to study wetlands 
delineation. The 1987 Wetlands Delineation Manual will be used pending 
the Federal agencies evaluation of the NAS study, and if it is 
determined that the 1987 Manual should be revised to respond to 
recommendations of the NAS, any proposed changes will be the subject of 
a process that will provide full opportunity for public comment.

requires EPA to promulgate national primary drinking water regulations 
for 83 specific contaminants of which arsenic is one. The SDWA directs 
EPA to promulgate MCLGs at a level at which, in the Administrator's 
judgment, ``no known or anticipated adverse effects on the health of 
persons occur and which allows for an adequate margin of safety.'' MCLs 
are the federally enforceable standards and are set as close to the 
MCLGs as is feasible, taking costs into consideration. Arsenic poses a 
cancer risk.

Abstract: EPA is scheduled to propose MCLGs and NPDWRs for 25 
contaminants from the 1991 Drinking Water Priority List, as required by 
the SDWA of 1986. The SDWA requires regulation of at least 25 
contaminants from the Drinking Water Priority List, which are known or 
anticipated to occur in public water systems, every three years 
starting in 1991. The SDWA directs EPA to promulgate MCLGs at a level 
at which, in the Administrator's judgment, ``no known or anticipated 
adverse effects occur and which allows for an adequate margin of 
safety.'' MCLs are federally enforceable standards and are set as close 
to the MCLGs as is feasible, taking costs into consideration. The 25 
contaminants come from two groups of contaminants: disinfection 
byproducts (Phase VIA) and organic and inorganic chemicals (Phase VIB). 
The disinfection byproducts portion of this rule is just completing 
regulatory negotiation. It is now composed of two rules: the 
disinfection byproducts rule (DBP) and the enhanced surface water

Abstract: The rule sets an MCLG and NPDWR for sulfate as specified in 
the Safe Drinking Water Act. The contaminant was deferred from the 
Phase V regulation in order to allow the Agency time to focus on 
implementation issues arising from the proposal concerning the risk of 
sulfate in drinking water to specific subpopulations. Sulfate can cause 
diarrhea in infants and in adults not acclimated to high sulfate-

CONTAMINANTS FROM DRINKING WATER PRIORITY LIST (PHASE VIB) - INORGANIC 
AND ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS

Significance:

These dates have been filed with the court, but they have not yet been 
entered by the court.

Abstract: EPA is scheduled to propose MCLGs and NPDWRs for 25 
contaminants from the 1991 Drinking Water Priority List, as required by 
the SDWA of 1986. The SDWA requires regulation of at least 25 
contaminants from the Drinking Water Priority List, which are known or 
anticipated to occur in public water systems, every three years 
starting in 1991. The SDWA directs EPA to promulgate MCLGs at a level 
at which, in the Administrator's judgment, ``no known or anticipated 
adverse effects occur and which allows for an adequate margin of 
safety.'' MCLs are federally enforceable standards and are set as close 
to the MCLGs as is feasible, taking costs into consideration. The 25 
contaminants come from two groups of contaminants: disinfection by-
products (Phase VIA) and organic and inorganic chemicals (Phase VIB). 
The Phase VIB rule is intended to reduce cancer risk and other chronic 
toxicity exposures. (See separate entry for Phase VIA.)

Abstract: Part C of the SDWA directs EPA to develop regulations for the 
protection of underground sources of drinking water from contamination 
by injection wells. The greatest number of injection wells are Class II 
(oil and gas related) wells operated by the petroleum industry for 
disposal of produced brines and enhanced recovery projects. EPA is 
considering proposing standards for all newly constructed or converted 
(from production operations) Class II injection wells. These standards 
may establish new or incremental performance criteria to ensure 
protection of underground sources of drinking water (USDWs).

Abstract: The SDWA requires EPA to develop regulations for the 
protection of underground sources of drinking water from contamination 
by injection wells. Previously promulgated regulations specified 
minimum standards and technical requirements for Class I-IV wells. 
Class V wells, including certain septic systems and a variety of 
drainage wells, are the subject of this action. EPA intends to 
establish a regulatory framework for the management of these wells that 
will protect against contamination of groundwater while recognizing the 
difficulties of this diverse well class. Development of any regulatory 
program will focus on providing maximum flexibility to State, sub-
state, and local entities. EPA will characterize risks associated with 
various Class V injection wells since data are unavailable for risk 
assessments on an individual subcategory basis.

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approves 
analytical methods for analyzing regulated drinking water contaminants. 
Periodically, the Agency withdraws approval of outdated methods, 
updates older methods, and/or approves new methods. In this regulatory 
effort, EPA will accomplish all three actions for a number of 
contaminants regulated under the Safe Drinking Water Act. These 
revisions have been evaluated and recommended for use by EPA's Office 
of Research and Development and by various standards setting 
organizations. Laboratory acceptance limits, detection limits and other 
method performance requirements that were specified under previous 
rules will not be changed in this rulemaking. This rule should decrease 
the cost of monitoring by broadening the number of regulated chemicals 
that can be measured by a method. Based on comments received during 
proposal the Agency will divide this action into two final rules. The 
first rule will cover the methods for which no comments were received. 
The second rule will cover the methods for which comments were 
received. This approach will expedite promulgation of noncontroversial 
methods.

treatment residuals. The modifications will establish exemption 
standards for these low risk ``listed'' hazardous waste management 
requirements. EPA intends to propose these modifications by March 1995 
and promulgate the final rules approximately one year later.

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: This amendment would allow EPA to modify a permit to correct 
an inadvertent omission of an applicable requirement under RCRA which 
is in effect prior to the data of permit issuance. The permit 
correction would follow the modification procedures in 40 CFR 124. 
Citizens would be able to request such a correction using existing 
procedures in 40 CFR 124.5.

Abstract: This rule would modify the regulations to expand and improve 
the mechanisms available for addressing post-closure care at hazardous 
waste land disposal facilities. It would allow substitution of 
enforcement mechanisms for post-closure permits in some cases, while 
still retaining the permit as an option to address these facilities. 
EPA is considering requiring States to adopt enforcement authority to 
compel corrective action at interim status facilities, consistent with 
Federal section 3008(h) authority.

wastes (HHW) or Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator (CESQG) 
hazardous wastes. In October 1991, EPA promulgated the Municipal Solid 
Waste Landfill Criteria (40 CFR 258), thereby satisfying part of the 
statutory mandate. EPA is under a settlement agreement with the Sierra 
Club to fulfill the remainder of the statutory mandate by promulgating 
revised Criteria for the remaining types of solid waste disposal 
facilities that my receive CESQG hazardous wastes. Depending on actual 
practices at specific facilities, these revised Criteria might be 
applicable to commercial and private industrial waste facilities and 
construction and demolition waste facilities managing non-hazardous 
wastes.

Abstract: The Agency is proposing to amend the regulations for 
hazardous waste management under RCRA by amending the basis for listing 
a hazardous waste (i.e., pentachlorophenol production wastes) under 40 
CFR 261.31. The Agency is also proposing to amend one hazardous waste 
(i.e., delete part of FO27 - discarded unused formulations of 
pentachlorophenol and compounds derived from pentachlorophenol) listed 
in 40 CFR 261.33 and to add one waste (i.e., U242 - pentachlorophenol) 
to the list of hazardous wastes in 40 CFR 261. FO21 and U242 would no 
longer be subject to management standards for acute hazardous wastes. 
Lastly, the Agency is proposing to clarify the criteria used in 40 CFR 
261.11 for listing solid wastes as hazardous. This rule proposes less 
stringent hazardous waste management standards for FO21 and discarded 
unused portions containing pentachlorophenol.

Abstract: This action is deregulatory. Used fluorescent lamps often 
test hazardous under the Toxicity Characteristic because of their 
mercury content. However, available information indicates that these 
lamps may not create an environmental problem when disposed in 
municipal landfills or sent to mercury reclamation facilities. In 
addition, there are substantial environmental benefits from using 
fluorescent lamps, primarily due to energy savings. Therefore, the 
Agency is considering options for exempting fluorescent lamps from 
Toxicity Characteristic and options for reducing Subtitle C 
requirements by including lamps in the ``Universal Waste'' rule.

Abstract: EPA is proposing to amend its regulations under RCRA 
governing the permitting of hazardous waste management facilities. The 
proposed rule expands the opportunities for public participation in the 
permitting process and during key permitting milestones. In particular, 
EPA is proposing to increase public involvement opportunities 
throughout the trial burn phase of the permitting process for 
combustion units. The proposed rule amends and clarifies permit 
modification classifications pertaining to combustion facilities. 
Finally, the proposed rule amends the permitting procedures for interim 
status combustion facilities during the trial burn period by making 
them more equivalent to the permitting procedures for new combustion 
facilities. Many of the amendments being proposed are intended to 
implement key aspects fo the Agency's Draft Strategy on Waste 
Minimization and Combustion.

``mixture'' and the ``derived-from'' rules, apply to ``contaminated-
media'' wastes regardless of the concentrations and the mobility of 
toxicants in the media, thereby regulating certain low-risk media. The 
modifications will establish exemption standards for these low-risk 
``contaminated media.'' Additionally, the exempted wastes will no 
longer be subject to some of the hazardous waste management 
requirements. EPA intends to propose these modifications by January of 
1995 and promulgate the final rules approximately one year later.

CFR 265.76

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The purpose of this rule is to amend the existing Uniform 
Hazardous Waste Manifest rule to make it truly ``uniform'' across the 
country. Presently what is supposed to be a ``uniform'' manifest is 
instead a patchwork of varying State manifests. Interstate shipments 
become quite burdensome when industry must deal with several different 
forms with varied requirements. This is compounded since States have 
difficulty tracking and verifying interstate loads.
The major issues involve the specific data elements that should be on 
the uniform manifest form. Most States want to see a truly uniform 
manifest that would be used by all States, but they also want a certain 
degree of flexibility to add data elements to suit their needs. 
Therefore, the goal of this rulemaking will be to achieve consensus on 
a manifest form that all States can live with.
The costs of this action should be minimal to the regulated industry 
since the new Federal form will only add a few data elements that in 
most cases are already being required by the various State forms.

generators include medical schools, universities, biotechnology 
laboratories, and pharmaceutical companies. This new category would 
include NRC licensees that generate less than 1000 kg/month of mixed 
waste, counting mixed waste as distinct from other hazardous waste. EPA 
and NRC must together determine how to ensure adequate protection of 
human health and the environment in order for any streamlined 
permitting of NRC licensed facilities to be implemented.

Abstract: This action would clarify that Indian Tribes may become 
authorized for the Subtitle C hazardous waste program, and that they 
may share in grant funds made available to States to assist with their 
implementation of authorized hazardous waste programs. The action would 
establish a definition of Indian Tribe, and the criteria which a Tribe 
must meet for authorization purposes. The rule would further clarify 
that Indian Tribes, unlike other States, may be considered for approval 
of partial RCRA programs, under criteria that would also be announced 
in the rule. The rule is of great symbolic significance to the Tribes, 
and it would implement EPA's 1984 Indian Policy by recognizing the 
sovereign status of Tribes and their primacy in implementing RCRA. The 
rule would deal with the issues of Indian Tribe capability, 
alternatives to authorization that also advance Tribes' participation 
in RCRA, and special attributes of Indian Tribe jurisdiction. The 
action would be closely coordinated with similar efforts in other media 
programs.

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 258.51(b)

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The RCRA Subtitle D Solid Waste Disposal Facility Criteria, 
among other provisions, require owners/operators of municipal solid 
waste landfills to monitor ground-water to detect releases from their 
landfills. The Criteria ban the filtering of ground-water samples in 
the field because filtering potentially removes some of the 
contamination found in the solid phase of the samples. Since 
promulgation of the Criteria, a number of States and industry groups 
have stated that it is important to field filter ground-water samples 
for metals to avoid potential false indications of releases to ground-
water. The commenters maintain that the analytical results using 
filtered samples are sufficiently protective and are as effective as 
unfiltered samples specified in the Criteria. This notice of proposed 
rulemaking (NPRM) would announce the Agency's intent to perform 
additional study on field filtering and solicit further public comment 
and data on this issue. In addition, this NPRM would seek comment on 
the appropriateness of allowing States/Tribes with EPA-approved permit 
programs to lift the ban on a site-specific basis.

implement a permit program, other system of prior approval, within 18 
months after the promulgation of revised criteria under Section 
4004(a), as required by Section 4010(c). Section 4005(c)(1)(C) requires 
the Administrator to determine whether each State has developed an 
``adequate permit program.''

Abstract: Following a major inland oil spill with substantial 
environmental impacts (i.e., Ashland Oil in Floreffe, PA, in January, 
1988) an interagency task force reviewed the adequacy of existing EPA 
regulations concerning the prevention and control of oil spills (40 CFR 
112). The task force recommended a number of steps to improve and 
extend the regulations. The final rule would implement some of the task 
force recommendations. It would clarify that many provisions of the 
existing regulations that may be interpreted as recommended practices 
by the regulated community are in fact required practices.

monitoring data as part of their petition. The amended regulations will 
clarify the Agency's existing authority to consider the impact of a 
petitioned waste on groundwater and deny a petition based on 
groundwater contamination. EPA is seeking this amendment to clarify its 
authority to request and consider such data in delisting decisions.

Abstract: This action would suspend the Toxicity Characteristic (TC) 
rule in States with adequate petroleum response programs, as it applies 
to non-UST petroleum contaminated media and debris, for a period of 
three years. This action would generally be consistent with the UST 
deferral in the TC rule. During this period the Agency would collect 
additional data, perform additional analyses, and explore other 
administrative and legal options and issues in preparation for making a 
final decision as to the appropriate RCRA regulatory treatment for 
these materials.

Legal Authority:  42 USC 6921/RCRA 3001

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 261

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: In the final hazardous waste Toxicity Characteristic (TC) 
rule, EPA decided to temporarily defer a final decision on the 
application of the TC rule to media and debris contaminated with 
petroleum from underground storage tanks (USTs) that are subject to UST 
corrective action requirements under 40 CFR Part 280. The Agency 
believed the UST regulations governing cleanups at these sites would be 
adequate in the interim. The application of the TC rule to UST cleanups 
was temporarily delayed so that the Agency could evaluate the extent 
and nature of these impacts and alternative mechanisms for implementing 
UST cleanups. The Agency has completed studies of the characteristics 
of UST corrective action sites, and current practices for management of 
media and debris under subtitle I State programs. As a result of these 
studies, EPA proposed to exempt UST petroleum-contaminated media and 
debris from certain portions of EPA's Hazardous Waste Regulations.

Abstract: On March 30, 1992, the Organization for Economic Cooperation 
and Development (OECD) adopted the Council's Final Decision on the 
Control of Transfrontier Movements of Wastes Destined for Recovery 
Operations. The United States, a member of the OECD, supported the 
Decision, which is legally binding. The Decision establishes a 
graduated system of procedural controls for the export and import of 
wastes for recovery, depending on whether a waste is included in the 
green, amber, or red lists. Green wastes are subject only to controls 
imposed in normal international commercial shipments. Amber and red 
wastes that are considered hazardous are subject to additional controls 
regarding notification to and consent from the exporting, importing, 
and transit countries; contracts, tracking documents; and 
recordkeeping. These provisions are being codified in a final rule 
which would replace the current RCRA export/import regulations for 
hazardous waste destined for recovery within the OECD. (cont)

Legal Deadline:  Final, Judicial, April 1, 1998.

Abstract: As required by consent decree, the Agency determined on 
December 1, 1992, that additional study of four large-volume wastes -- 
fly ash, bottom ash, boiler slag and flue gas emission control wastes -
- from the combustion of coal by electric utility power plants was not 
necessary, and that a Final Regulatory Determination would be made on 
these wastes by August 2, 1993. (This determination was signed on 
August 2, 1993 and published in the Federal Register on August 9, 
1993). The Agency also determined that for the remaining fossil-fuel 
combustion wastes, additional data collection is necessary to make a 
Regulatory Determination on these wastes and a final regulatory 
determination will be made by April 1, 1998. The phrase ``remaining 
wastes'' refers to (1) fly ash, bottom ash, boiler slag, and flue gas 
emission control wastes from the combustion of coal by electric utility 
power plants when such wastes are mixed with, co-disposed, co-treated, 
or otherwise co-managed with other wastes generated in conjunction with 
the combustion of coal or other fossil fuels, (cont)

Abstract: The purpose of this action is to investigate the health and 
environmental impacts of non-combustion source air emissions from 
hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities and to 
develop standards for monitoring and control as needed. Sources include 
tanks, surface impoundments, landfills, waste piles, land treatment 
operations and wastewater treatment facilities. Pollutants to be 
considered by such standards would include volatile organic compounds, 
particulate matter, specific toxic substances, or a combination of 
these. The mandate for standards development under RCRA is to protect 
human health and the environment. The Agency has adopted a three-phase 
approach: Phase I regulates organic emission from equipment leaks and 
process vents; Phase II will address tanks, containers, surface 
impoundments, and miscellaneous units; and Phase III will address 
residual risk associated with particular hazardous organic 
constituents.

HAZARDOUS AIR POLLUTANTS

Significance:
Subject to OMB review: Undetermined
Economically significant: Undetermined
Regulatory Plan entry: Undetermined

Legal Authority:  42 USC 7412

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 63

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: This rulemaking will establish lesser-quantity emission rates 
(LQERs), emission rates of less than 10 tons per year, to define 
sources emitting a pollutant at greater than its LQER as a major 
source. For pollutants for which an LQER is warranted, sources emitting 
that pollutant at a higher emission rate than the LQER would be subject 
to the requirements for major sources. This rulemaking addresses the 
need to take into account that some pollutants are more toxic than 
others and that emissions of 10 tons per year of certain highly toxic 
air pollutants pose a significant health risk.

VOC EMISSIONS FROM CONSUMER AND COMMERCIAL PRODUCTS

Significance:
Subject to OMB review: Yes
Economically significant: Undetermined
Regulatory Plan entry: Undetermined

Legal Authority:  Clean Air Act as amended in 1990, sec 183(e)

CFR Citation:  Not yet determined

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The use of consumer and commercial products has been 
identified as a source of VOC emissions which contribute to 
tropospheric ozone formation. Section 183(e) of the Clean Air Act, as 
amended in 1990, requires that EPA conduct a study of VOC emissions 
from consumer and commercial products. The objectives of the study are 
(1) to determine the potential of these products to contribute to ozone 
nonattainment; and (2) to establish criteria for selecting categories 
of products for regulation under Section 183(e). The EPA must submit a 
report to Congress that documents the results of the study. Upon 
submission of the report, EPA must list those categories of consumer 
and commercial products that have been determined, based on the study, 
to account for at least 80 percent of the VOC emissions from consumer 
and commercial products in nonattainment areas. EPA must divide the 
list into four groups by priority and regulate one group every two 
years beginning no later than two years after publishing the 
prioritized category list.

also requires EPA to establish a federal permit program where States 
fail to submit an appropriate State program, fail to adequately 
implement an approved program, or fail to issue good Title V permits to 
individual sources. These regulations also address issuance or permits 
to outer continental shelf sources, acid rain sources and sources 
located on Tribal lands. This program is established by regulation 
promulgated in this notice. EPA will approve applications and issue 
Federal operating permits, as well as enforce the program.

Abstract: The Federal Implementation Plans (FIP's) will result in 
attainment of the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for 
tropospheric ozone in all 3 areas and of the NAAQS for carbon monoxide 
in SCAQMD. Reductions in emissions of volatile organic compounds and/or 
nitrogen oxides are required to attain the ozone NAAQS. EPA will build 
on the air quality management plans and State rules for each area. EPA 
will involve the district and State air resources authorities, other 
Federal agencies, and others in the rule development process to ensure 
meeting the judicial schedule and facilitate better rules. Elements of 
the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments offer greater flexibility with 
respect to attainment dates and control measures. These elements 
together with cost effectiveness, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, and 
environmental equity considerations will input to the regulation 
development process.

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: A new method for monitoring pollutants in ambient air has 
been developed and introduced to the EPA. This new monitor, called an 
open path analyzer, is capable of measuring pollutant concentrations 
over a path of several meters to several kilometers. Traditional 
monitoring methods measure gaseous pollutant concentrations by 
extracting an air sample through as inlet probe, resulting in a 
``point'' measurement. The advent of open path technology has 
necessitated this revision of the existing regulations which govern the 
use of ambient air monitors. These revisions will parallel existing 
criteria required for ambient air monitors used in the state and local 
air quality monitoring networks.

Abstract: Emission statements and periodic inventories are new programs 
addressed in the 1990 Amendments to the Clean Air Act that calls for 
emissions reporting. In addition, requirments for the annual reporting 
of emissions from stationary sources are contained in 40 CFR 51.321 - 
51.323. Each of these programs requires either sources or states to 
report emissions and other supporting data. The data reporting 
intervals, type of pollutant source, pollutant type, and geographic 
coverage varies for the three programs. This rule will address the 
streamlining and consolidation of reporting requirements of each of 
these programs. The emissions data made available by these programs 
will also provide a mechanism for tracking emissions on an annual 
basis.

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: Instrumental test methods currently available require on-
site, multi-point calibration with gaseous standards of known 
concentration. For testing contractor conducting multiple test methods, 
this can frequently mean the transportation of dozens of high pressure 
gas cylinders over long distances. Gas dilution systems are available 
which can be used to dilute a known, certified high level gas into 
lower concentration gases. This method, which has been available for 
comment through the Emission Measurement Technical Information Center 
since April, 1991, provides a standard procedure for certifying the 
accuracy and precision of these gas dilution systems for field 
applications. The purpose of this method is to provide the State and 
local administration with a tool for insuring correct instrument 
calibration, while providing considerable cost savings to the source.

baselines that reflect the properties and volume of the gasoline that 
was produced at a foreign refinery 1990 and imported for use within the 
United States. Importers of reformulated gasoline produced at the 
foreign refinery would then be allowed to use the individual foreign 
refinery baseline values to demonstrate compliance with the 
reformulated gasoline standards with regard to gasoline produced at 
that foreign refinery, subject to certain limitations and conditions 
that are proposed as well. This amendment would allow imported 
reformulated gasoline to be evaluated relative to individual refinery 
baselines in a manner that is similar to the manner in which 
reformulated gasoline produced at domestic refineries is evaluated.

Abstract: In order to determine compliance with the volatile organic 
compounds rules for certain types of printing and coating operations, 
it is necessary to determine the effectiveness of the system for 
collecting the vapors to be ducted to a control device, referred to as 
capture efficiency (CE). EPA is undertaking a study to investigate less 
expensive ways of using the current CE guidance, as well as to identify 
criteria for approving alternatives to the current guidance. EPA 
expects to issue the results of the study in Spring 1994, followed by 
rule- making to incorporate CE methods into EPA regulations.

Administrator listed under section 111(b)(1)(A) before the date of the 
enactment of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 and for which 
regulations had not been proposed by the Administrator by such date. At 
the time of enactment of the 1990 Amendments, there were approximately 
19 categories of major stationary sources listed on the NSPS priority 
list for which NSPS had not been proposed, including the starch 
manufacturing industry. When, by November 15, 1992 the Agency had not 
proposed any NSPS covering this group of categories, the Sierra Club 
and the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) filed suit on January 
19, 1993 against the Agency in the U.S. District Court District of 
Columbia (the court), for failing to meet its obligations under the 
Act. A partial consent decree was lodged with the court on July 22, 
1993. This decree mandated that NSPS be proposed for at least 3 of the 
unregulated categories of major stationary sources from the priority

turpentine recovery, tall oil recovery), pulp washing, prebleaching, 
bleaching evaporation, and paper making. Additional regulations are 
being developed for units associated with liquor recovery such as 
recovery furnaces, lime kilns, causticizing tanks, smelting tanks, and 
acid plants. Air Emission standards for noncombustion sources at kraft, 
soda, sulfite, and semichemical mills and combustion sources at kraft 
and soda mills are being integrated with the Clean Water Act effluent 
guideline limitations under development for theses mills (see RIN 2040-

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.

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 7 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.

3954.  AMENDMENTS TO PART 63 TO ESTABLISH PROVISIONS FOR 
DETERMINING POTENTIAL TO EMIT

Significance:
Subject to OMB review: Yes
Regulatory Plan entry: Undetermined

Legal Authority:  42 USC 7401 et seq

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 63

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: Under authority of sections 112 and 114 of the Clean Air Act 
(Act) Amendments of 1990, provisions are being proposed to enable 
stationary sources to establish federally enforceable controls to limit 
their ``potential to emit'' hazardous air pollutants (HAP). These 
provisions would help sources determine whether they are subject to new 
Federal air toxics regulations under section 112 and permitting 
requirements under title V of the Act that apply to sources with the 
potential to emit air pollutants above a certain threshold. Under these 
regulations, controls must be federally enforceable to be considered as 
limiting a source's potential to emit. With federally enforceable 
potential to emit limits for HAPs, sources could avoid being considered 
``major sources'' of HAPs, and thus avoid having to comply with section 
112 and title V requirements that apply only to major sources.
In addition, the proposed rule would provide new mechanisms for 
establishing permanent, federally enforceable limits on a source-
specific basis through State rules or programs that are approved by the 
EPA for this purpose. The proposed rule also would set cutoff dates for 
facilities that choose to (cont)

ABSTRACT CONT: establish potential to emit limits for the purpose of 
avoiding compliance with otherwise applicable requirements. Beyond 
these dates, only pollution prevention measures could be used to 
establish new potential to emit limits.
This rule would: streamline the process for sources to receive approval 
of emission controls as federally enforceable; reduce the 
recordkeeping, reporting, and other compliance burdens on section 112 
affected sources; and avoid overregulation of facilities that are not 
true ``major sources'' of HAPs.
The proposed provisions for determining potential to emit would amend 
regulations already established to implement the new Federal air toxics 
program under section 112, including the recently promulgated General 
Provisions.
This action resulted from splitting of 2060-AC98 and 2060-2918.

Abstract: Section 112 of the Clean Air Act (CAA), as amended November 
1990, requires the EPA to regulate categories of major and area sources 
of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) listed in Section 112(b). The EPA 
has determined that sources that manufactured chlorine may reasonable 
be anticipated to emit several of the 189 HAP's listed (including 
chlorine and mercury) in quantities sufficient to designate them as a 
major source. As a consequence, chlorine manufacturing is on the 
initial list of HAP-emitting source categories selected for regulation 
(57 FR 31576, July 16, 1992) and is in the group of categories for 
which final regulations are expected to be promulgated by November 
1997.

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 
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's 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. Ultimately, a NESHAP will be developed based on 
candidate Maximum Achievable Control Technology. This is a 7-year 
standard, required to be promulgated by November 1997.

Abstract: This regulation under development, via regulatory 
negotiation, will control volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions 
from architectural and industrial maintenance (AIM) coatings. These 
coatings are applied to stationary structures and their appurtenances, 
to portable buildings, to pavements, or to curbs. Traditional VOC 
limitations, market-based approaches, and phased-in approaches are all 
being considered.

Abstract: This action will establish procedures under which vehicle 
manufacturers will demonstrate durability of their emission control 
systems during certification of passenger cars and light-duty trucks 
beginning with the 1999 model year. Under separate actions, EPA has 
promulgated revised light-duty durability procedures for certification 
of model years 1994 through 1998, procedures that are necessary to 
implement revised useful life levels mandated by the Clean Air Act 
Amendments of 1990. The long term durability program will translate 
into ongoing efforts by the EPA and vehicle manufacturers to develop 
durability procedures that will more accurately predict the emissions 
deterioration of vehicles in actual use.

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: In the Cold Temperature Carbon Monoxide Emissions notice of 
proposed rulemaking published September 17, 1990 (55 FR 38250), EPA 
solicited and subsequently received comments regarding a cold 
temperature CO emissions averaging program, although it did not propose 
such a program. In the Final Rule, promulgated July 17, 1992 (57 FR 
31888), EPA stated that it would publish a proposal regarding an 
averaging program in the near future, taking the comments received into 
consideration. The Agency intends to propose an averaging, banking and 
trading program modelled after such programs already in place for other 
mobile source pollutants and vehicle classes. Such a program would 
allow manufacturers additional flexibility to optimize their emission 
control systems, thus potentially reducing control costs while 
achieving emission reductions essentially equivalent to those required 
by the non-averaged standards. The expected effective model year is 
1996, which is the first year the current regulations require 100% 
compliance with the cold temperature CO standards.

counterparts, to be certified as commercial importers without obtaining 
a certificate of conformity from EPA. This action is in response to a 
petition for review of import rules. EPA will also clarify and change 
certain other issues in part 85, subpart P and subpart R, including: 1) 
formalizing a longstanding EPA policy regarding the importation of 
owned vehicles that are proven to be identical to a vehicle certified 
for sale in the U.S., 2) establishing emission standards applicable to 
imported nonconforming vehicles, 3) clarifying the regulatory language 
that concerns exclusions and exemptions from meeting Federal emission 
requirements, and 4) providing several clarifications to the existing

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 oversees 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.

Original stat. deadline of 5/15/92 is from 11/90 Clean Air Act 
Amendments. Other Judicial date: Per U.S. District Court Consent Decree 
EPA issued a preliminary technical report on 5/15/93.

Abstract: Section 206(h) of the Clean Air Act (as amended, 1990) 
requires EPA to ``review and revise as necessary'' the regulations 
governing the Federal Test Procedure (FTP) to ``insure that vehicles 
are tested under circumstances which reflect the actual current driving 
conditions under which motor vehicles used, including conditions 
relating to fuel, temperature, acceleration, and altitude.'' The 
driving cycle used for the FTP was adopted over twenty years ago and 
accumulated research suggests that it may no longer adequately 
represent overall vehicle emission control performance under current 
driving conditions. Extensive surveys of current driving behavior 
conducted by the EPA indicate significant differences between actual 
driving behavior and the FTP. New test cycles determined from the 
driving behavior surveys were used to compare emissions predicted by 
the FTP with emissions that occur in actual driving. The test results 
support the need for revisions to the FTP.

Abstract: Section 211(f)(1)(A) of the Clean Air Act prohibits for use 
in light-duty vehicles, fuels and fuel additives which are not 
``substantially similar'' to fuels or additives used to certify 
vehicles to emissions standards. Section 211(f)(1)(B) expands these 
prohibitions to all motor vehicles. Since the term ``substantially 
similar'' is not defined in the Act, the intent of this rulemaking is 
to interpret the term ``substantially similar'' in regard to diesel 
fuel and diesel fuel additives and thus make more explicit which 
products are prohibited by section 211(f)(1)(B). The definition of 
``substantially similar'' enables manufacturers to determine whether 
their fuels or fuel additives are covered by, or excluded from, the 
section 211(f)(1)(B) prohibitions.

3993. CONTROL OF AIR POLLUTION: STANDARDS FOR EXHAUST EMISSIONS FROM 
SPARK-IGNITED MARINE PROPULSION ENGINES

Significance:
Subject to OMB review: Undetermined
Economically significant: Undetermined
Regulatory Plan entry: Undetermined

Legal Authority:  PL 101-549, Sec 222; 42 USC 7547

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 91

Legal Deadline:  NPRM, Judicial, September 30, 1994. Final, Judicial, 
November 22, 1995.

Abstract: This action will implement emission standards and test 
procedures for currently unregulated spark-ignited marine propulsion 
engines. Section 213 of the Clean Air Act (CAA) as amended requires the 
EPA to conduct a study to determine whether emissions of carbon 
monoxide (CO), oxides of nitrogen (NOx), and volatile organic compounds 
(VOCs) from nonroad engines and vehicles contribute to levels of 
ambient ozone and CO in more than one area not in compliance with the 
National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for these pollutants. 
EPA has proposed (50 FR 28809) that emissions from such sources 
significantly contribute to nonattainment of the NAAQS for ozone and CO 
in more than one area. If the Agency makes this positive determination, 
section 213 requires EPA to promulgate regulations that will result in 
reductions in emissions from non-road sources. Consequently, EPA is 
developing this proposal to reduce emissions from marine propulsion 
engines.

matter (PM) standard throughout their useful life. (EPA's planned 
procedures for the annual testing program have already been established 
in an Advisory Circular.) If EPA determines that urban buses do not 
comply under the Clean Air Act, EPA must require that new urban buses 
operate on low-polluting fuels. This action will establish a pass/fail 
and other criteria that EPA will use to make determinations.

Abstract: The current NSPS for electric utility steam generating units 
was promulgated in 1979. A major feature of the NSPS is NOx control 
through the use of overfired air or low NOx burners. 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 
electric utility units. These revised standards are to reflect 
improvements in methods for the reduction of NOx emissions. At this 
time no information has been developed which could be reviewed to 
estimate costs or benefits of possible revisions to the NSPS. Costs to 
industry and regulatory agencies arising from revised NSPS are unknown.

Abstract: Since the late seventies, EPA has had a program to phase down 
lead in gasoline. This was a result of evidence that lead from 
automotive emissions, an air toxic, poses a serious health threat to 
the public. The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 ban the use of leaded 
gasoline in all motor vehicles beginning in January 1996. Additionally, 
it is required that a test procedure for determining lead substitute 
additives' ability to reduce valve wear and to identify other effects 
be established along with procedures for lead substitutes additive 
registration. These latter provisions are intended to assure 
availability of non-lead additives that can be used to protect valves 
in older engines designed for leaded fuel.

Abstract: This rulemaking will establish uniform provisions for state 
programs to require certain centrally fueled fleets to include some 
clean-fuel vehicles in their new vehicle purchases. It will include 
regulations governing the light duty vehicle and light duty truck clean 
fuel vehicle standards, heavy duty engine clean fuel standards, and 
conversion of conventional vehicles to meet clean-fuel fleet vehicle 
requirements. The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 mandate that EPA 
establish a pilot program in the State of California to demonstrate the 
effectiveness of clean-fuel vehicles in controlling air pollution in 
ozone nonattainment areas. As part of this program, EPA must promulgate 
regulations establishing light duty clean-fuel vehicle standards, 
manufacturer sales requirements, and a voluntary opt-in program for 
other states with serious, severe or extreme ozone nonattainment areas.

Legal Authority:  42 USC 7545

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 80

Legal Deadline:  Final, Statutory, November 15, 1992.

Abstract: The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 mandate EPA to 
promulgate regulations establishing specifications for additives in 
gasoline beginning in 1995 to prevent the accumulation of deposits in 
the engine or fuel supply systems. The establishment of such 
specifications should ensure the use of additives in the 10 to 25 
percent of fuel projected not to contain additives by 1995, as well as 
the proper amount and type of additives to have the desired effect 
without causing negative side effects. Controlling Controlling engine 
and fuel supply system deposits is a better vehicle performance, a 
significant reduction in in-use emissions, and the potential for 
significant economic advantages due to a decreased need for premium 
gasoline use.

special enforcement-related program under the Clean Air Act (CAA) and 
Clean Water Act (CWA), commonly referred to as the ``Contractor Listing 
Program.'' The Contractor Listing Program authorizes EPA to bar 
facilities from federal contracts, grants or loans as a consequence of 
criminal or civil violations of the CAA or CWA. The draft proposed 
revisions to these regulations incorporate new authority granted by the 
CAA amendments of 1990. The amendments expand the criminal violations 
for which a facility may be listed and also give EPA the discretion to 
list other facilities of the owner or operator.

Abstract: There are currently no emission standards for motor vehicles 
operating on gaseous fuels (i.e., natural gas and liquefied petroleum). 
Also, there are no certification procedures for aftermarket 
conversions. In order to put gaseous-fueled vehicles on an equal 
footing with other vehicles, EPA has proposed emission standards and 
certification procedures for gaseous-fueled vehicles which are largely 
the same as those currently in place for other vehicles. Also, EPA has 
proposed certification procedures for aftermarket conversions based on 
the new vehicle certification procedures.

Abstract: Section 112(d)(9) of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 
(CAAA) provides the EPA with the Authority not to regulate NRC-
licensees under Section 112, if the agency, by rule and in consultation 
with the NRC, determines that the NRC regulatory program provides an 
ample margin of safety to protect the public health. EPA analyzed the 
public health risks posed by nuclear power plants to determine whether 
NRC's regulatory program for air emissions provides an ample margin of 
safety to protect the public health. EPA has determined that the NRC 
regulatory program results in sufficiently low doses to meet the Clean 
Air Act requirement of providing an ample margin of safety to protect 
the public health. Based on these findings, EPA will issue a final rule 
to rescind Subpart I of 40 CFR Part 61 as it applies to nuclear power 
reactors.

Abstract: In accordance with section 112(d)(9) of the Clean Air Act 
Amendments of 1990 (CAAA), EPA is considering whether or not to issue a 
final rule to rescind Subpart I of 40 CFR Part 61, as it applies to 
facilities licensed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) or NRC 
Agreement States which are not engaged in the generation of nuclear 
power (57 FR 56877, December 1, 1992). Section 112(d)(9) gives EPA the 
authority to decline to regulate NRC-licensees after the Administrator 
makes a determination, by rule, and in consultation with the Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission (NRC), that the regulatory program established by 
the NRC pursuant to the Atomic Energy Act provides an ample margin of 
safety to protect the public health. Several issues have arisen since 
EPA issued the proposal rescission which must be resolved before EPA 
can make the requisite legal finding pursuant to Section 112(d)(9). EPA 
has decided that it will not issue the final rescission until after 
NRC's program is strengthened and provides an ample margin of safety to 
protect the public health.

Abstract: On July 14, 1992, EPA published a final regulation on the 
servicing of motor vehicle air-conditioners. That rule established that 
two types of equipment could be used in service: equipment that 
recovers and recycles refrigerant or equipment that only recovers 
refrigerant from the motor vehicle. The refrigerant from recover only 
equipment must then be recycled on- site or sent off-site for 
reclamation. The July 14, 1992, final rule contains the equipment 
standard for recycling equipment in Appendix A, but the recover only 
equipment standard was proposed separately in a supplemental proposal 
published April 22, 1992. This rule will finalize the recover only 
standard as Appendix B in the motor vehicle servicing regulation.

describes EPA's preliminary views on how the Agency should interpret 
various provisions of title I with regard to requirements for PM-10 
serious nonattainment area State Implementation Plans (SIPs). Although 
the guidance includes various statements that States must take certain 
actions, these statements are made pursuant to EPA's preliminary 
interpretations, and thus do not bind States and the Public as a matter 
of law. This addendum is an advance notice of how EPA generally intends 
to take action on SIP submissions and to interpret various PM-10 
related title I provisions.

final rule must be in place before October 1, 1994.

Abstract: The purpose of this action is to revise the current air grant 
regulations contained in 40 CFR 35, subpart A, so that they are 
consistent to the changes made to section 105 as a result of enactment 
of the 1990 Clean Air Act. The Act also directed EPA to reexamine and 
revise, as necessary, certain aspects of the air grant cost-sharing 
relationship that must now be revised to reflect the impact of: (1) the 
Title V permit fee provisions contained in 40 CFR 20 and (2) a recent 
OGC opinion prohibiting the use of Title V fees to help meet the 
nonfederal contribution requirements of the section 105 air grant 
program. This revision includes the introduction of a provision to 
allow recipients to receive (upon demonstration to, and approval by, 
the Administrator) a waiver from certain cost-sharing requirements for 
a limited time.

Abstract: Chromium compounds are among the pollutants listed as 
hazardous air pollutants in Section 112 of the Clean Air Act Amendments 
of 1990. Industrial process cooling towers that use chromate-based 
water treatment programs have been identified by EPA as potentially 
significant sources of chromium air emissions and, as such, a source 
category for which national emission standards may be warranted. 
Emission standards would substantially reduce the amount of chromium 
discharged to the atmosphere from industrial process cooling towers.

Abstract: An NSPS was proposed for this source category in 1980. 
Subsequently, in 1987, the Agency solicited public participation in 
information gathering in preparation for a decision on whether to 
regulate this source category under the NESHAP program, the NSPS 
program, or both. The NESHAP regulations are being developed and would 
apply to new and existing organic halogenated solvent cleaners 
(degreasers) using any of the hazardous air pollutants listed in the 
Clean Air Act, as amended. The Agency proposed a rule for this project 
on November 29, 1993 (58 FR 62566), and by consent decree has to 
promulgate the rule within twelve (12) months of the proposal.

Abstract: Gasoline vapors contain about ten of the hazardous air 
pollutants (HAPs) listed in Section 112 of the Clean Air Act Amendments 
of 1990. These HAP emissions occur during transferring and storage 
operations. Facilities being analyzed are bulk gasoline terminals and 
plants, pipeline facilities, and gasoline service stations. Control 
alternatives of major sources of emissions (large size terminals and 
pipeline facilities) were the only facilities affected by the proposal. 
Costs average about sixteen million dollars per year with benefits of 
about three thousand tons of HAPs reduced, and about fifty thousand 
tons of volatile organic compounds.

Abstract: EPA is developing a NESHAP for the major source category of 
magnetic tape manufacturing. This industry manufactures audio video and 
computer tape by coating a substrate (tape) with a solvent-based 
magnetic coating. The primary HAPs used in this industry are methyl 
ethyl ketone, methyl isobutyl ketone, and toluene. These are used both 
as a solvent for heating and as a cleaning solution for cleaning 
operations. EPA promulgated an NSPS for this industry in 1988. The 
standards for the NESHAP are to be technology-based and are to require 
the maximum achievable control technology (MACT) as described in 
section 112 of the CAA.

case MACT compliance limits for every major source of emissions that 
would have been subject to the MACT standard. This guidance is intended 
to aid the States in making those compliance determinations which the 
CAA specifies be equivalent to what MACT standards would have required. 
The guidance is intended to resolve technical issues concerning overlap 
with other Section 112 programs, and will provide a basis for uniform 
determinations to be made across a regulated industry. The MACT 
determinations will be enforced through the Title V permitting process.

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 50% of the source categories listed in 
Section 112(e) by 11/15/97. EPA plans to promulgate this standard by 
11/30/94 to satisfy part of the stat requirement.

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. Emission standards would 
substantially reduce the amount of cyanide discharged to the atmosphere 
from cyanide chemical manufacturers.

Legal Authority:  42 USC 7401 et seq

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 71

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: Under section 112(i)(5) of the Clean Air Act, a source that 
demonstrates achieving qualifying early reductions of hazardous air 
pollutants may obtain a six-year extension from an otherwise applicable 
section 112(d) emission standard compliance date. Qualifying sources 
are to be issued a Title V permit containing an alternative emission 
limitation, to be met by the source until the compliance extension 
expires, however, permit applications from certain early reduction 
sources are to be submitted by April 30, 1994, which is prior to the 
time any States will have approved Title V permitting programs. 
Therefore, in order to avoid not having a mechanism to process the 
incoming permit applications (until such time as State programs are 
effective), this rulemaking establishes an interim federal program for 
issuing specialty Title V permits.
The rulemaking, which is patterned closely on the features of the 
promulgated part 70 rule for State Title V programs, provides for EPA 
Regional Offices to issue the permits to qualifying early reduction 
sources. Such permits would encompass only the early reductions source 
and only hazardous air pollutant (cont)

Legal Authority:  Clean Air Act, sec 179

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 52

Legal Deadline:  Final, Statutory, June 22, 1993.
EPA issued initial findings under section 179 in December 1991. 
Consequently, it may be necessary to impose the first sanctions 18 
months from that date.

Abstract: Section 179 of the CAA mandates the imposition of certain 
sanctions. These sanctions follow one of four types of findings: (1) 
finding of failure to submit a required SIP; (2) finding that a SIP 
submittal is incomplete; (3) finding of SIP disapproval; or (4) finding 
of nonimplementation. The two available sanctions are highway funding 
restriction and a 2-to-1 emission offset requirement for major new or 
modified stationary sources. Section 179(a) requires EPA to select one 
of these two sanctions to be applied 18 months after a finding if the 
deficiency prompting the finding is not corrected, and the second 
sanction 6 months later if the deficiency remains uncorrected. The 
purpose of this action is to streamline, to the extent possible, the 
process of deciding the order of sanction application under section 179 
by promulgating a rule which states, as a general matter, the order in 
which EPA would apply the sanctions (e.g. offset sanctions first and 
highway sanctions second).

4033. CONTROL TECHNOLOGY GUIDELINES (CTG)

Significance:
Subject to OMB review: Undetermined
Economically significant: Undetermined
Regulatory Plan entry: Undetermined

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

CFR Citation:  Not applicable

Legal Deadline:  Final, Statutory, November 1993.

Abstract: The Clean Air Act requires EPA to issue control technology 
guidelines (CTG's) for 13, including two specifically named, source 
categories by November 15, 1993. A CTG was published by this date for 
two source categories - chemical plant distillation and reactor process 
vents. Draft CTG's for volatile organic liquid storage, batch 
operations, and waste- water processes have been published for public 
comment. Final CTG's for these and the remaining eight source 
categories will be published in 1995. Meanwhile, States are required to 
develop rules for these categories by November 15, 1994. EPA is in the 
process of issuing alternative control techniques (ACT) documents for 
these source categories as an interim measure for States to use for 
this purpose. ACT's differ from CTG's in that they are information 
documents only; they do not contain recommended control levels. In 
addition, a draft CTG for wood furniture is continuing to be developed 
as part of a regulatory negotiation for that industry.

published on August 8, 1989. Based on the public comments received and 
further analysis, EPA developed a supplemental notice of proposed 
rulemaking which was published on January 30, 1991. Analysis of all 
public comments are complete and work on the final rulemaking is under 
way.

proposal amends the existing citizen suit notice provisions to: 1) 
reflect changes made to Section 304 in the 1990 Amendments, including 
the express inclusion of notice requirements for suits against the 
Administrator alleging Agency action unreasonably delayed; 2) clarify, 
for each type of citizen action requiring notice, the timing of such 
notice; and 3) conform CAA notice practice more closely to the practice 
under other, more recent citizen suit notice regulation promulgated 
pursuant to other Federal environmental statutes.

Legal Deadline:  Final, Statutory, May 1987. Final, Judicial, November

Abstract: The purpose of this action is to investigate the health and 
environmental impacts of non-combustion source air emissions from 
hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities and to 
develop standards for monitoring and control as needed. Sources include 
tanks, surface impoundments, landfills, waste piles, land treatment 
operations and wastewater treatment facilities. Pollutants to be 
considered by such standards would include volatile organic compounds, 
particulate matter, specific toxic substances, or a combination of 
these. The mandate for standards development under RCRA is to protect 
human health and the environment. The Agency has adopted a three-phase 
approach: Phase I regulates organic emissions from equipment leaks and 
process vents; Phase II will address tanks, containers, surface 
impoundments, and miscellaneous units; and Phase III will address 
residual risks from particular hazardous organic constituents.

hazardous wastes listed under the Resource Conservation and Recovery 
Act that have not been added to the hazardous substances list; and (4) 
adjust the RQs for these and other hazardous wastes, including waste 
streams FO37 and FO38 (sludge from petroleum refinery separation 
processes). Conforming changes will be made to the Clean Water Act 
tables of hazardous substances and the Emergency Right-to-Know Act

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 261.33(f); 40 CFR 261; 40 CFR 302.4

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: This proposed rule would remove saccharin from the list of 
hazardous wastes under Section 3001 of the Resource Conservation and 
Recovery Act (RCRA) and from the list of hazardous substances under 
Section 102 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, 
and Liability Act (CERCLA). This regulatory action is in response to a 
petition to remove saccharin from regulation under RCRA and CERCLA. The 
petition is based on recent studies that dispute previous scientific 
findings that saccharin is a possible carcinogen. It is anticipated 
that the proposed action would result in annual new cost savings to 
both government and the regulated community because saccharin would no 
longer be subject to regulation under RCRA and CERCLA.

Abstract: EPA has proposed rule to list 65 carbamate hazardous 
substances, substance categories, and waste streams as RCRA section 
3001 hazardous wastes. Under section 101(14)(c) of CERCLA such wastes 
are also CERCLA hazardous substances. Under CERCLA 102(b) the carbamate 
wastes have a statutory reportable quantity (RQ) of one pound, and 
further CERCLA section 102(a) gives the EPA the authority to adjust the 
RQs. Thus, the current rulemaking will enable the Agency to review the 
carbamate wastes and make any necessary adjustments to their RQs.

Abstract: Following the final rulemaking to adjust the RQ for 
radionuclides in March 1989, the American Mining Congress (AMC) and the 
Fertilizer Institute (TFI) challenged the RQ for Radon-222 in 
litigation. The D.C. Circuit Court declined to address the issue 
because it had not first been presented to EPA for review during the 
comment period. AMC and TFI submitted a petition on June 24, 1993 to 
adjust the Radon-222 RQ to a higher RQ. EPA agrees in part with the 
arguments presented by the petitioners and wishes to review their 
contentions in order to adjust the RQ for Radon-222 as necessary. If 
the RQ is in fact raised, it will decrease the number of reports from 
industry and likewise reduce the burden of reviewing such reports on 
the part of the Agency.

Abstract: In carrying out the revised National Oil and Hazardous 
Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP), EPA has identified several 
provisions that may be interpreted differently than the Agency 
intended. In order to avoid any confusion, and to better inform the 
public, EPA is proposing clarifications to four sections of the NCP. 
None of these changes are intended to be substantive.

4072. THE NATIONAL PRIORITIES LIST FOR UNCONTROLLED HAZARDOUS WASTE

Significance:
Subject to OMB review: Undetermined
Regulatory Plan entry: Undetermined

Legal Authority:  42 USC 9605/CERCLA 105

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 300

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The rule would finalize criteria proposed on December 21, 
1988 (53 FR 51421) to be applied in decisions about whether to delete 
sites from the National Priorities List for the purpose of deferring 
them to RCRA Subtitle C corrective action authorities. The Agency 
currently defers willing and financially able sites to RCRA Subtitle C; 
however, it has not, to this point, finalized its policy of deleting 
sites from the NPL so that RCRA can address them. Doing so will reduce 
duplicative oversight resources and authorities and make them available 
for the types of sites, i.e., abandoned sites with uncontrolled 
releases, that Superfund is intended to address. Adoption of this 
policy should not impose any significant additional demands on Federal 
funds or other resources. Most likely it will save Superfund oversight 
resources by letting RCRA address sites that meet the criteria, i.e., 
sites that are progressing well under RCRA Subtitle C authorities and 
whose deletion would not disrupt on-going cleanup activities.

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: This rule would codify administrative reporting exemptions 
from the requirements of section 103 of the Comprehensive Environmental 
Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) for radionuclide 
releases naturally occurring from: (1) large land molding; (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 coal ash piles at utility and industrial 
facilities with coal-fired boilers. The Agency has decided that such 
reports serve no useful purpose. Subsequent to the original 
promulgation of the exemptions in a final rule (54 FR 22524, May 24, 
1989), a court decision (The Fertilizer Institute v. United States 
Environmental Protection Agency (935 F. 2nd 1303 (1991))) specified 
that the exemptions were promulgated without sufficient notice and 
opportunity for public comment. This rule responds to the court 
decision and provides such notice and opportunity for comment.

certain facility owners and operators prepare response plans to respond 
to a worst case discharge of oil. These plans would apply to facilities 
that, because of their location, reasonably could be expected to cause 
substantial harm to the environment by a discharge of oil into or on 
navigable waters, adjoining shorelines, or the exclusive economic zone.

22 RULE CONFORMS TO THE NEW FEDERAL FACILITY COMPLIANCE ACT

Legal Authority:  42 USC 6961(b)(2)

CFR Citation:  40 CFR 22.37(g)

Legal Deadline: None

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

Abstract: EPA regulations at 40 CFR part 2, subpart B, provide 
procedures for handling and disclosing information claimed as CBI. 
Although these regulations have succeeded in protecting business 
information, changes in Agency workload, practice, and statutory 
authority have outstripped the ability of these regulations to cut down 
on unnecessary procedures, expedite activities involving confidential 
business information, and simplify the regulations. In addition, EPA 
would consolidate confidentiality provisions from other Parts of 40 
CFR.

Abstract: The Privacy Act of 1974 provides that Congress and the Office 
of Management and Budget be notified of proposed systems of records and 
that the public be given a 30-day period in which to comment on the 
routine uses of the system. EPA provided such notice for a new system 
of records named ``Criminal Investigative Index and Files'' on April 
25, 1986, 51 FR 15830. EPA is proposing altering this system because of 
statutory changes in the enforcement provisions implemented by EPA as 
well as organizational changes.
