National Emission Standards for Chromium Emissions From Hard and Decorative Chromium Electroplating and Chromium Anodizing Tanks

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule amendments; reopening of public comment period.

SUMMARY: The EPA is announcing the reopening of the public comment period on the proposed amendments to the national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) for Chromium Emissions from Hard and Decorative Chromium Electroplating and Chromium Anodizing Tanks.

We are reopening the comment period and extending the deadline for written comments to January 21, 2003, because pertinent information related to the proposed rule amendments was not submitted to the docket and thus not available for inspection prior to August 1, 2002.

By U.S. Postal Service, send comments (in duplicate if possible) to: Air and Radiation Docket and Information Center (6102), Attention Docket Number A-88-02, U.S. EPA, 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20460.

The EPA will disclose information identified as CBI only to the extent allowed by the procedures set forth in 40 CFR part 2. If no claim of confidentiality accompanies a submission when it is received by EPA, the information may be made available to the public without further notice to the commenter.
