Plastic Parts Coatings

Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 42664

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 R307-353 reduces VOC emissions emitted from plastic parts coating operations by establishing reasonably available control technology (RACT) requirements, as well as clarifying regulatory requirements to the industry.

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 adoption of the 2014 amendments.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

Rule R307-353 was amended one time since the rule was created. In 2014, a series of source coating system rules were amended to clarify that the amount of control removal specified in each rule was based on the entire system, and inspection and recordkeeping requirements for these systems were expanded. Rule R307-353 is needed to establish RACT controls in the plastic parts coating operations emitting VOCs, which are precursors to the formation of PM2.5. Rule R307-353 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.
