PART 1 GENERAL

1.1 Purpose
The purpose of this Rule is to provide clarity on the District's enforcement authority for the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants by incorporating those provisions of Parts 61 and 63, Chapter I, Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR Parts 60 & 63) into this Rule by reference.

1.2 Applicability
All new stationary sources of air pollution, and all modified or reconstructed stationary sources of air pollution shall comply with the standards, criteria, and requirements set forth herein. Whenever any source is subject to more than one rule, regulation, provision or requirement relating to the control of any air contaminant, the most stringent provision shall apply.

1.3 Exemptions
As noted in each subpart's applicability section.


1.4 Effective Dates
This Rule as most recently revised is effective on December 15, 1999.

1.5 References
The authority for this Rule arises from the provisions of California Health and Safety Code Sections 40001 and 40702.


PART 2 DEFINITION
For the purpose of this Rule, the definition below shall apply.

2.1 Administrator
The word "Administrator" as used in 40 CFR Parts 61 and 63 shall mean the Air Pollution Control Officer (APCO) of the District, except where the reference to "Administrator" relates to approval of alternate or equivalent test methods or alternative work practices.


PART 3 REQUIREMENTS

3.1 Incorporation of Federal Standards
The provisions of Parts 61 and 63, Chapter I, Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR Parts 61 & 63), which are in effect on December 15, 1999, are incorporated herein as part of the Rules and Regulations of the Monterey Bay Unified Air Pollution Control District. Applicable provisions of 40 CFR Parts 61 and 63 include those incorporated in the current bound CFR volume plus any provisions recently promulgated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA), as noticed in the Federal Register, but not yet incorporated into the bound CFR. Where there are currently effective provisions which are not yet included in the bound CFR volume, the Federal Register notice by which each provision was promulgated is referenced at the affected Subpart.

3.2 List of Incorporated CFR Provisions
The following tables list all provisions which are incorporated in their entirety as part of this Rule. Federal Register (FR) references are to currently effective provisions promulgated or revised by US EPA but not yet incorporated into the currently available CFR volume. Notations in these lists indicate deviations from the US EPA-promulgated provision found in the CFR which have been adopted by the District Board for inclusion in this Rule.
