EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AO71 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: Regulation of Fuels and Fuel Additives: Alternative Affirmative Defense Requirements for Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel and Gasoline Benzene Technical Amendment 
Abstract: This rule provides flexibility to refiners, importers and distributors of diesel fuel by amending the ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) regulations to allow a nationwide sampling and testing program to be used as an alternative means of meeting the sampling and testing defense elements under 40 CFR section 80.613. This alternative method would consist of a comprehensive program of quality assurance sampling and testing calculated to achieve the same objectives as the current regulatory quality assurance requirement; i.e. that the sulfur content in ULSD does not exceed regulatory limits. This rule also amends the gasoline benzene regulations to allow disqualified small refiners the same opportunity to generate gasoline benzene credits as that afforded to non-small refiners.
