SIP Revision Submittal Format Package

States must submit all final revisions to the State/Local Implementation Plan (including request for parallel processing) to the Regional Administrator identifying the purpose of the change, the intent of the change, and include a statement that the revision is being submitted under section 110 of the Clean Air Act. The submittal should say that it is in response to some requirement of title I of the Clean Air Act or if it is an action that the State/Local is taking in an effort to attain and/or maintain the National Ambient Air Quality Standards. The following is an example of the format in which draft, prehearing and final adopted revisions must be submitted. This format provides a method of indicating what additions are being made to a regulation (underline) and which portion of the regulation is being removed (strikeout). The State makes an official plan submission to EPA only when the submission conforms to the requirements of appendix V of 40 CFR part 51 and the State delivers the submission to EPA through one of the three following methods: An electronic submission through EPA’s SPeCs submission system; one paper submission to the appropriate Regional Office with an exact duplicate electronic version, preferably in a word searchable format; or three paper submissions.
