EPA stays chemical manufacturing area sources rule

Joy LePree

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a 60-day administrative stay of the Chemical Manufacturing Area Sources (CMAS) rule. Affected sources originally faced an imminent October 29 deadline to comply with the 2009 final rule, but with EPA still in the process of finalizing its reconsidered CMAS rule, the agency noted that a stay of the rule was warranted. The stay ends on December 24, 2012.

On January 30, 2012, EPA published a proposed reconsideration of this rule in order to re-evaluate certain provisions, some of which would affect applicability. Since the final reconsideration is not yet completed, EPA stated that a short stay of final rule is appropriate to allow the agency the time necessary to complete the reconsideration action.
