Proposed Amendments to Part 212

NYS DEC is proposing to repeal Part 212, General Process Emission Sources, and replace it with Part 212, Process Operations. This rulemaking proposed to streamline and update Part 212's provisions, align those provisions with NYS DEC's permitting regulations, provide more regulatory certainty for the regulated community, and ensure public health and welfare; and attendant revisions to Part 200. NYS DEC is also proposing to revise the State Implementation Plan (SIP) to remove an outdated version of Part 212 that was previously approved by the United State Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) on July 12, 2013 (78 FR 41846) and incorporate proposed Part 212 and attendant portions of Part 200.

The Business Council will provide comments based upon member input and feedback. The development of the proposed amendments to Part 212 has occurred over multiple years.
