Rule 62-210.200 Definitions
(pg 1-3 of draft language)
• “Applicable Requirement”:
• Definition is simplified by referencing Part 70 (40 C.F.R. 70.2)
and limiting its use to purposes of the Title V permitting
program only. “Designated Facility Plan” is added as a Title V
“applicable requirement.”
• “Designated Facility Plan”:
• New definition is added to include all federally approved state
plans under §111(d) of the CAA (analogous to SIP).
• “Emergency Generator”:
• This definition is being deleted. DEP rules will defer to the
federal definition in 40 C.F.R. Part 60, subparts IIII and JJJJ,
and 40 C.F.R. Part 63, subpart ZZZZ.

Rule 62-210.200 Definitions cont.
(pg 3-4 of draft language)
• “Major Source of Air Pollution” (“Title V Source”):
• The definition is revised to include the federal exemption for
area sources from Title V permitting.
• “Modification”:
• This definition will only be used for the purposes of the
department’s minor source permitting program. The
definition is clarified to be applied to any proposed increase
from past actual to future potential emissions of a regulated
air pollutant. (The department’s intent is that the term “Major
Modification” be separate and distinct.)

Conditional Exemptions
(pg 12 of draft language)

new term “unit-specific limitation or requirement” to apply to
minor source categories (surface coating operations; fossil fuel
steam generators, hot water generators and other external
combustion heating units; reciprocating internal combustion
engines (RICE) and printing operations).
