EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AR00 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: National Uniform Standards for Storage Vessel and Transfer Operations, Equipment Leaks, Closed Vent Systems and Control Devices; Revisions to the National Uniform Emission Standards General Provisions 
Abstract: Organic chemical processing industries such as oil and gas, petroleum refining, and chemical production have similar emission sources that are often required to be controlled to similar levels by the same type of control devices and work practice standards. The air pollution control regulatory requirements for these sources have evolved and improved as different New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) have been developed over the years. This has resulted in requirements that are different and in many cases insufficient especially with respect to ensuring continuous compliance. This action will develop and consolidate state-of-the-art uniform standards that will then become applicable when they are referenced in future regulatory actions, such as new and revised Control Technique Guidelines documents, NSPS technology reviews, and MACT Risk and Technology reviews for these industries. The uniform standards are expected to include requirements for work practices and equipment standards and for monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements. Uniform standards will be developed in this action for the following: 1) equipment leaks and ancillary systems, 2) closed vent systems and control devices, and 3) storage vessels and transfer operations. General provisions will also be updated accordingly in this action. In addition to developing the uniform standards, EPA also expects to develop tools for the proper application of these uniform standards during rule development, including anticipated costs and pollutant emission reductions.
