The Clean Air Act additionally provides broad authority for EPA to collect information related to the regulations we adopt for aircraft and other emission sources (42 U.S.C. 7414(a)(1)). EPA is accordingly adopted emission standards for aircraft gas turbine engines and added a requirement for manufacturers to submit information related to compliance with the emission standards. EPA will use the data to verify compliance with emission standards and to better understand the characteristics of aircraft engines that are subject to emission standards.
