Title: New Source Performance Standards Review for Industrial Surface Coating of Plastic Parts for Business Machines 
Abstract: New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Industrial Surface Coating of Plastic Parts for Business Machines (40 CFR part 60 subpart TTT) were promulgated pursuant to section 111(b) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) on January 29, 1988. The NSPS established standards of performance in the form of emission limitations based on the best system of emission reduction (BSER) (taking into account the cost of achieving such reduction and any nonair quality health and environmental impact and energy requirements). The pollutants emitted from the affected sources include volatile organic compounds. This action would implement a requirement of CAA section 111(b)(1)(B) that the EPA review, and if appropriate, revise the standards of performance no less often than every 8 years. In accordance with terms of a consent decree (Our Children’s Earth Foundation v. Wheeler, No. 19-cv-7125 (N.D. Cal.)), the EPA intends to propose this action by June 1, 2022, and finalize this action by June 1, 2023.
