Subsequent phases will look at removing variations in in-use fuel requirements and put in place provisions to ensure that health and welfare are protected as new fuels enter the marketplace.
Back Modernizing Ignitable Liquids Determinations The EPA is proposing to update the flash point test methods for the determination of characteristically ignitable hazardous waste. The currently required test methods refer to outdated standards developed by the American Society for Testing and Materials ASTM standards and require instrumentation that is no longer readily commercially available.
In addition, the standards require the use of mercury thermometers. The proposed update to the flash point test methods will allow for the use of commercially available instrumentation and will no longer require mercury thermometers.
The EPA will also propose that the requirements for mercury thermometers be removed from the SW Compendium sampling methods.
In addition, a revision to clarify the alcohol exclusion for ignitable aqueous alcohols is being proposed. The NESHAP established emission limitations and work practice requirements based on maximum achievable control technology MACT for controlling emissions of hazardous air pollutants HAP from asphalt processing and asphalt roofing manufacturing.
The HAP emitted from these processes include numerous organic compounds such as formaldehyde, hexane, phenol, polycyclic organic matter and toluene. This action will implement the residual risk review requirements of CAA section f 2 and the technology review requirements of CAA section d 6.
The statute directs the EPA to promulgate emission standards under CAA f 2 if such standards are required to provide an ample margin of safety to protect public health or to prevent, taking relevant factors into account, an adverse environmental effect.
CAA section d 6 requires the EPA to review and revise the MACT standards as necessary, taking into account developments in practices, processes and control technologies, no less often than every 8 years.

The actual data required by a TRI form will not change as a result of this rulemaking, nor will the rule affect the universe of TRI reporting facilities that are required to submit reports to the Agency under the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act section The information is collected every four years from manufacturers including importers of certain chemicals in commerce generally when production volumes for the chemical are 25, pounds or greater for a specific reporting year.
Collecting the information every four years assures that the EPA and for non-confidential data the public have access to information on chemicals that are produced in large quantities. Before the next reporting period ofthe EPA will be examining the reporting requirements to better align the reporting with Agency needs, such as frequency of reporting and changes to the processing and use codes, parent company information, and other changes due to the amendments to the TSCA by the Frank R.
