Control Techniques Guidelines Document; Addendum to Control 
Techniques Guidelines Document: Wood Furniture Manufacturing Operations

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
ACTION: Addendum to control techniques guidelines (CTG) document.


SUMMARY: This notice establishes adoption and implementation dates for 
reasonably available control technology (RACT) rules based on a CTG 
published on May 20, 1996 for wood furniture manufacturing operations.

ADDRESSES: Control Techniques Guidelines (CTG). Copies of the CTG may 
be obtained from the U.S. EPA Library (MD-35), Research Triangle Park, 
North Carolina 27711, telephone number (919) 541-2777. The final CTG

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 182(b)(2) of the Clean Air Act 
requires that States shall submit a revision to the applicable 
implementation plan to include provisions to require the implementation 
of RACT for each category of volatile organic compounds (VOC) sources 
in the area covered by a CTG document issued by the Administrator after 
enactment of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. This revision shall 
be submitted within the period set forth by the Administrator in the 
relevant CTG document. This time table for States to submit RACT rules 
is further described in Section IV of Appendix E, General Provisions 
for the Implementation of Title I of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 
1990 (57 FR 18077). A CTG document for control of VOC emissions from 
wood furniture manufacturing operations was made available to the 
public through a Federal Register notice published on May 20, 1996 (61 
FR 25223). Today's notice establishes the adoption and implementation 
dates for RACT rules required to be developed in response to this CTG.
    Any State which has not adopted an approvable RACT rule for the 
sources covered by this CTG must submit a RACT rule for these sources 
before May 20, 1997. Furthermore, States must provide for sources to 
install and operate the required control devices or implement the 
required procedures under these RACT rules no later than May 20, 1998.

    Dated: September 20, 1996.
Mary D. Nichols,
Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation.
