Regulatory Impact Analysis For The Establishment Of A Definition Of Routine Maintenance, Repair And Replacement For The New Source Review Program.
Currently, the EPA interprets and applies its major New Source Review (NSR) exclusion for sources performing routine maintenance, repair and replacement (RMR&R) on a case-by-case basis. This rulemaking provides a formal definition of what constitutes RMR&R and describes two approaches through which sources of pollution may perform routine maintenance, repair and replacement activities without triggering major source NSR permit determinations and applications. These approaches establish a maximum cost "allowance" for exempted maintenance and repair activities; with one approach using a case-by-case basis and the other using a unit-wide aggregate cost basis.
