EPA/OAR RIN: 2060-AU38 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Extension of Photochemical Assessment Monitoring Stations Compliance Deadline 
Abstract:

Significant revisions to the Photochemical Assessment Monitoring Stations (PAMS) requirements were made as part of the 2015 Ozone NAAQS review. The revised PAMS requirements significantly reduced the number of PAMS sites (from 75 to 43) while improving spatial coverage. States were required to start making PAMS measurements by the compliance deadline of June 1, 2019. The EPA plans to extend the compliance date for the required PAMS by 2 years, from June 1, 2019, to June 1, 2021, to allow States more time to purchase and become proficient with the necessary equipment.
