SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On April 13, 2018, EPA published a direct final rule approving the updated delegation of authority for implementation and enforcement of NSPS and NESHAPs for all sources (both part 70 and non-part 70 sources) to the NMED. The direct final rule was published without prior proposal because EPA anticipated no relevant adverse comments. EPA stated in the direct final rule that if relevant adverse comments were received by May 14, 2018, EPA would publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register. EPA received an adverse comment on May 14, 2018. Accordingly, EPA is withdrawing the direct final rule. In a separate subsequent final action EPA will address the comment received. The withdrawal is being taken pursuant to sections 111 and112 of the CAA.
