 Technical Amendments to Performance Specification 18 and 
Procedure 6

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Partial withdrawal of direct final rule.

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

SUMMARY: Because the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) received 
adverse comment, we are withdrawing a portion of the May 19, 2016, 
direct final rule that made several minor technical amendments to the 
performance specifications and test procedures for hydrogen chloride 
(HCl) continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS). The adverse 
comments related to revisions to Procedure 6 and thus the EPA is 
withdrawing the portion of the direct final rule that revised Procedure 
6.

DATES: Effective August 8, 2016, the EPA withdraws the revisions to 
Procedure 6, sections 4.1.5, 4.1.5.1, 4.1.5.3, and 5.2.4.2, published 
at 81 FR 31515, on May 19, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Candace Sorrell, U.S. EPA, Office 
of Air Quality Planning and Standards, Air Quality Assessment Division, 
Measurement Technology Group (Mail Code: E143-02), Research Triangle 
Park, NC 27711; telephone number: (919) 541-1064; fax number: (919)

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 19, 2016, the EPA published a direct 
final rule that makes minor technical amendments to the performance 
specifications and test procedures for hydrogen chloride (HCl) 
continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS). 81 FR 31515. In the 
direct final rule, the EPA stated that if we received adverse comment 
by July 5, 2016, the EPA would publish a timely withdrawal and address 
the comments in a subsequent final rule based on the proposed rule also 
published on May 19, 2016 (81 FR 31577). The May 19, 2016, direct final 
rule noted that if the EPA received adverse comment on an amendment, 
paragraph, or section of this rule and, if that provision may be 
severed from the remainder of the rule, the EPA may adopt as final 
those provisions of the rule that are not the subject of an adverse 
comment.
    In this instance, the EPA received an adverse comment on an 
amendment to the quality assurance provision in Procedure 6, related to 
above span requirements. 81 FR 31517. The portions of the direct final 
rule revising Performance Standard 18 are severable from the revisions 
to Procedure 6. Thus, the EPA is only withdrawing the revisions to 
Procedure 6. The EPA will address the comment in a subsequent final 
action, which will be based on the parallel proposed rule also 
published on May 19, 2016 (81 FR 31515). As stated in the parallel 
proposal, we will not institute a second comment period on this 
proposed action. The revisions to Performance Standard 18 in the May 
19, 2016, direct final rule are not affected and will become effective 
on August 17, 2016, as provided in the direct final rule.

    Accordingly, amendatory instruction 3 in the direct final rule

withdrawn as of August 8, 2016.
