Download as PDF Lhorne on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 128 / Monday, July 6, 2015 / Notices Virginia (Virginia) the authority to implement and enforce various federal National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) and New Source Performance Standards (NSPS), which are found at 40 CFR parts 60, 61 and 63.1 In those actions, EPA also delegated to Virginia the authority to implement and enforce any future EPA NESHAP or NSPS on the condition that Virginia legally adopt the future standards, make only allowed wording changes, and provide specified notice to EPA. In a letter dated March 12, 2015, Virginia informed EPA that Virginia had updated its incorporation by reference of federal NESHAP and NSPS to include many such standards, as they were published in final form in the Code of Federal Regulations dated July 1, 2014. Virginia noted that its intent in updating its incorporation by reference of the NESHAP and NSPS was to retain the authority to enforce all standards included in the revisions, as per the provisions of EPA’s previous delegation actions. Virginia committed to enforcing the federal standards in conformance with the terms of EPA’s previous delegations of authority. Virginia made only allowed wording changes. Virginia provided copies of its revised regulations specifying the NESHAP and NSPS which Virginia has adopted by reference. These revised regulations are entitled 9 VAC 5–50 ‘‘New and Modified Stationary Sources,’’ and 9 VAC 5–60 ‘‘Hazardous Air Pollutant Sources.’’ These revised regulations have an effective date of March 11, 2015. Accordingly, EPA acknowledges that Virginia now has the authority, as provided for under the terms of EPA’s previous delegation actions, to implement and enforce the NESHAP and NSPS standards which Virginia has adopted by reference in Virginia’s revised regulations 9 VAC 5–50 and 9 VAC 5–60, both effective on March 11, 2015. Please note that on December 19, 2008, in Sierra Club v. EPA,2 the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit vacated certain provisions of the General Provisions of 40 CFR part 63 relating to exemptions for startup, shutdown, and malfunction (SSM). On October 16, 2009, the Court issued a mandate vacating these SSM exemption provisions, which are found at 40 CFR 63.6(f)(1) and (h)(1). 1 EPA has posted copies of these actions at: http://www.epa.gov/reg3artd/airregulations/ delegate/vadelegation.htm. 2 Sierra Club v. EPA, 551 F.3rd 1019 (D.C. Cir. 2008). VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:37 Jul 02, 2015 Jkt 235001 Accordingly, EPA no longer allows sources the SSM exemption as provided for in the vacated provisions at 40 CFR 63.6(f)(1) and (h)(1), even though EPA has not yet formally removed these SSM exemption provisions from the General Provisions of 40 CFR part 63. Because Virginia incorporated 40 CFR part 63 by reference, Virginia should also no longer allow sources to use the former SSM exemption from the General Provisions of 40 CFR part 63 due to the Court’s ruling in Sierra Club v. EPA. EPA appreciates Virginia’s continuing NESHAP and NSPS enforcement efforts, and also Virginia’s decision to take automatic delegation of additional and more recent NESHAP and NSPS by adopting them by reference. Sincerely, Diana Esher, Director, Air Protection Division This notice acknowledges the update of Virginia’s delegation of authority to implement and enforce NESHAP and NSPS. Dated: June 18, 2015.
