Consolidated Rules of Practice Governing the Administrative Assessment of Civil Penalties, Issuance of Compliance or Corrective Action Orders, and the Revocation, Termination or Suspension of Permits
Document Number: 2014-26321
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-11-06
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency
This direct final rule revises the scope of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Consolidated Rules of Practice governing the administrative assessment of civil penalties to encompass the assessment of civil penalties under the air pollution control provisions of the Act to Prevent Pollution from Ships. The EPA has not previously established adjudicatory procedures for the assessment of civil penalties under that statute. Establishment of such procedures will provide for the efficient and effective adjudication, including administrative appeals, of such proceedings consistent with statutory requirements. This rule also revises the address for the Environmental Appeals Board to reflect its relocation to the William Jefferson Clinton East Building.
