Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Final rule; technical amendments.

SUMMARY:

The EPA is taking final action to amend certain portions of the national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for Group I Polymers and Resins; and the NESHAP for Group IV Polymers and Resins, which were promulgated in September 1996. These changes consist of minor cross referencing and typographical errors, as well as minor clarifications.

These amendments will not change the basic control requirements of the NESHAP or the level of health protection they provide. These amendments do not alter the requirement for new and existing major sources to control emissions of hazardous air pollutants to the level reflecting application of the maximum achievable control technology.

Section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act provides that, when an agency for good cause finds that notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest, the agency may issue a rule without providing notice and an opportunity for public comment. The EPA has determined that there is good cause for making these rule amendments final without prior proposal and opportunity for comment because these minor technical corrections are noncontroversial in nature, and because they do not substantively change the requirements of these NESHAP. Thus, notice and public procedure are unnecessary. The EPA finds that this constitutes good cause under section 553 of the Administrative Procedure Act.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

July 16, 2001.

ADDRESSES:

Docket number A-92-44 for the Group I Polymers and Resins NESHAP and Docket number A-92-45 for the Group IV Polymers and Resins NESHAP contain supporting information used in developing the standards. The dockets are located at the U.S. EPA, Room M-1500, 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC 20460, and may be inspected from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays.

I. Background

On September 5, 1996 (61 FR 46906) and September 12, 1996 (61 FR 48208), the EPA promulgated NESHAP for Group I Polymers and Resins (40 CFR part 63, subpart U) and the NESHAP for Group IV Polymers and Resins (40 CFR part 63, subpart JJJ), respectively. In November 1996, petitions for review of the September 1996 Groups I and IV Polymers and Resins NESHAP were filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. The petitioners raised numerous technical issues and concerns with these NESHAP. Based on a settlement agreement that was reached in 1998 between EPA and the petitioners, EPA promulgated amendments to these NESHAP on June 19, 2000 (65 FR 38030). After promulgation of those amendments, based in part on information provided by industry, EPA determined the rule required some minor changes both to carry out the purpose of the June 19, 2000 amendments and to correct errors in sections of the rule. These changes consist of minor referencing and typographical corrections, removing discrepancies between subparts U and JJJ, as well as minor clarifications. In this action, we are promulgating amendments to correct these minor errors.

In addition to these final amendments to subparts U and JJJ, other actions taken to amend various aspects of subparts U and JJJ since the original promulgation of these NESHAP in September of 1996 include the following Federal Register notices: January 14, 1997 (62 FR 1835), equipment leaks compliance date extension for both NESHAP; June 6, 1997 (62 FR 30993), equipment leaks compliance date extension for poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) resin affected sources; July 15, 1997 (62 FR 37720), minor corrections and clarifications to the NESHAP; February 27, 1998 (63 FR 9944), change in the effective date to February 27, 1998 for subpart JJJ; March 31, 1998 (63 FR 15312), a temporary compliance extension until February 27, 2001 for existing affected sources producing PET using the continuous terephthalic acid (TPA) high viscosity multiple end finisher process; December 9, 1998 (63 FR 67879), notification of a proposed partial settlement; March 9, 1999 (64 FR 11536), clarifications and corrections to the NESHAP; March 9, 1999 (64 FR 11561), proposed amendments to the NESHAP; May 7, 1999 (64 FR 24511), withdrawal of one amendment from the amendments in the March 9, 1999 direct final rule as a result of adverse comments; June 8, 1999 (64 FR 30406), equipment leaks compliance date extension for new and existing affected sources producing PET; June 8, 1999 (64 FR 30456), proposed denial of petition for reconsideration of the equipment leak requirements in subpart JJJ; June 30, 1999 (64 FR 35023), indefinite stay of the compliance dates for certain provisions under subparts U and JJJ; June 19, 2000 (65 FR 38030), promulgated amendments to the NESHAP; August 29, 2000 (65 FR 52319), indefinite stay of compliance date for existing affected sources producing PET using the TPA high viscosity multiple end finisher process; October 26, 2000 (65 FR 64161), withdrawal of indefinite stay of compliance date for existing affected sources producing PET using the TPA high viscosity multiple end finisher process; February 23, 2001 (66 FR 11233), indefinite stay of compliance date for existing affected sources producing PET using the TPA high viscosity multiple end finisher process; and February 26, 2001 (66 FR 11543), compliance date extension for new and existing affected sources producing PET, in order to complete reconsideration of the equipment leaks requirements in subpart JJJ.

III. Administrative Requirements

Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993), this action is not a “significant regulatory action” and is therefore not subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget. Because the Agency has made a “good cause” finding that this action is not subject to notice-and-comment requirements under the Administrative Procedure Act or any other statute (see summary), it is not subject to the regulatory flexibility provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.), or to sections 202 and 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (UMRA) (Public Law 104-4). In addition, this action does not significantly or uniquely affect small governments or impose a significant intergovernmental mandate, as described in sections 203 and 204 of UMRA. These rule amendments also do not significantly or uniquely affect the communities of tribal governments, as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 6, 2000). These rule amendments will not have substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government, as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999). These rule amendments also are not subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997), because they are not economically significant.

This technical correction action does not involve technical standards; thus, the requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) do not apply. These rule amendments also do not involve special consideration of environmental justice related issues as required by Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994). In issuing these amendments, EPA has taken the necessary steps to eliminate drafting errors and ambiguity, minimize potential litigation, and provide a clear legal standard for affected conduct, as required by section 3 of Executive Order 12988 (61 FR 4729, February 7, 1996). The EPA has complied with Executive Order 12630 (53 FR 8859, March 15, 1988) by examining the takings implications of these rule amendments in accordance with the “Attorney General's Supplemental Guidelines for the Evaluation of Risk and Avoidance of Unanticipated Takings” issued under the Executive Order. These rule amendments do not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). The EPA's compliance with these statutes and Executive Orders for the underlying rules is discussed in the September 5, 1996 (61 FR 46906) and the September 12, 1996 (61 FR 48208) Federal Register notices.

The Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.), as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. Section 808 allows the issuing agency to make a rule effective sooner than otherwise provided by the Congressional Review Act if the agency makes a good cause finding that notice and public procedure is impracticable, unnecessary or contrary to the public interest. This determination must be supported by a brief statement (5 U.S.C. 808(2)). As stated previously, EPA has made such a good cause finding, including the reasons therefor, and established an effective date of July 16, 2001. The EPA will submit a report containing this rule and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. This action is not a “major rule” as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).
