Title: ●National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutant Emissions: Hard and Decorative Chromium Electroplating and Chromium Anodizing Tanks 
Abstract:

The EPA is taking direct final action to promulgate amendments to a final rule that revised national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for the Hard and Decorative Chromium Electroplating and Chromium Anodizing Tanks source category. The final rule was published on September 19, 2012 (77 FR 58219). This action, which will be a direct final rule and parallel proposal, will add provisions back into the rule that were inadvertently deleted when the EPA published the 2012 final amendments. These provisions, which were in the original 1995 NESHAP, provided facilities the opportunity to increase the duration of time between surface tension measurements after a certain number of compliant measurements. The EPA never intended these provisions to be deleted. The direct final rule will also provide a correction regarding the requirement to phase-out the use of fume suppressants that contain perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) for chromium electroplating and chromium anodizing tanks. In addition, the direct final rule will correct several typographical errors, incorrect references, and other minor inadvertent errors that the EPA discovered after promulgation of the 2012 final amendments.
