New Source Review (NSR) Permitting

Clean Air Act Permitting Electronic Notice Final Rule

October 5, 2016 - EPA is issuing a final rule revising its public notice regulations for the New Source Review, title V and Outer Continental Shelf permit programs of the Clean Air Act. This action removes the mandatory requirement to provide public notice for draft permits (and certain other program actions) by newspaper publication and instead provides for electronic-notice (e-notice) of these actions. Permitting authorities that implement e-notice also are required to post the draft permit on a website (e-access).
