Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation
DAR File No.: 42653

NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
This rule was enacted under Subsection 19-2-104(1)(a). Subsection 19-2-104(1)(a) authorizes the Air Quality Board to promulgate rules "regarding the control, abatement, and prevention of air pollution from all sources and the establishment of the maximum quantity of air pollutants that may be emitted by an air pollutant source." Rule R307-342 establishes VOC emission limits and emission abatement requirements if emission levels are exceeded. Additionally, Rule R307-342 includes recordkeeping requirements, product application requirements, and container labeling requirements.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
There have been no comments in opposition to or in support of this rule since the 2014 amendments were adopted.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
Rule R307-342 was amended one time since the rule was adopted. In 2014, the rule was amended to exempt the Department of Defense (DOD) contractors throughout the state who must meet DOD military specifications for adhesive and sealants used in much of their products sold to the United States Armed Forces. Rule R307-342 is needed to specify the specific emission limits and controls necessary for VOCs in the manufacturing of adhesives and sealants, which are precursors to the formation of PM2.5. In addition, Rule R307-342 is a component of Utah's State Implementation Plan (SIP), and cannot be removed from the SIP without EPA approval. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
