Clean Air Act Advisory Committee (CAAAC)

Permits, New Source Review, and Toxics Subcommittee of the CAAAC

The Permits, New Source Review, and Toxics Subcommittee meets on a periodic basis to discuss a variety of topics related to EPA's new source review permitting program, operating permit program, and toxic air pollutant program. EPA uses this as an opportunity to solicit ideas and comments from the Subcommittee on major rulemakings and reports which are under development by the Agency.

Future meetings of this subcommittee are expected to focus on topics such as: the urban toxics strategy, new source review permitting in transitional nonattainment areas, and status of the new source review reform and operating permit revisions efforts.

The subcommittee's meetings are held in conjunction with the CAAAC meetings.
