Implementation of an Emission Statement Program

This document contains technical guidance for the development and implementation of an emission statement program.  The guidance was published in draft and never officially finalized, but has served as the relevant guidance since 1992.  The purpose of this guidance is to interpret the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendment requirement for emission statements by addressing which sources are subject to emission statements, what constitutes an emission statement, and what should be submitted.
