Download as PDF 40022 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 132 / Tuesday, July 12, 2005 / Notices Participation should not give rise to any inference of wrongdoing. To the contrary, EPA deems those who choose to participate to be cooperatively addressing an industry-wide problem, acting responsibly and proactively. Further, until the results of the study are published and EPA determines emissions factors, it can be difficult for participants to determine their compliance status. The Agreement provides a mechanism for resolution of civil liability, as set out in the Agreement, that is designed to achieve compliance for large segments of the industry as rapidly as possible. For all of these reasons, participants should not suffer adverse consequences in any other public or private application, program, or proceeding for voluntarily undertaking this action. Conclusion Interested parties should refer to the January 31, 2005, Federal Register notice (70 FR 4958) to view the consent agreement and final order at Appendix 1, Attachment A—Farm Information Sheet, and Attachment B—National Air Emissions Monitoring Study Protocol.

Kaplan, Director, Special Litigation and Projects Division, Office of Civil Enforcement and Compliance Assurance.
