Applicable provisions of 40 CFR Part 60 include those incorporated in the current bound CFR volume plus any provisions recently promulgated by 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 in Attachment I of this Rule.

B. 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.

C. "Administrator" means "APCO"

For the purpose of this Rule, the word "Administrator" as used in 40 CFR Part 60 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 standards/work practices. EPA policy specifies that the authority of the EPA Administrator for approval of these alternatives cannot be delegated to the APCO.
