DEP Publishes Proposed Rule Revisions for Chapters 62-296 and 62-297, F.A.C.

Posted Monday, April 21st, 2014

On April 11, 2014, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) published several proposed revisions to Chapters 62-296 and 62-297, F.A.C.  The proposed revisions to Chapter 62-296, F.A.C. (OGC No. 12-1180), would amend a number of rule sections to correct erroneous cross-references, remove obsolete provisions, and otherwise clarify the rule language.  The proposed revisions to Chapter 62-297, F.A.C., would remove unnecessary or redundant provisions related to test methods and procedures.

Specifically, the proposal would repeal Rule 62-297.401, F.A.C. (OGC No. 12-1178) (which currently lists the test methods to be used when compliance tests are required), and portions of Rule 62-297.440, F.A.C. (OGC No. 12-1179) (which currently provides supplementary test procedures), because required test methods and procedures are already prescribed in each rule that requires a compliance test.

The proposal would also amend Rule 62-297.450, F.A.C. (OGC No. 12-1179), to clarify requirements for determining the capture efficiency of a volatile organic compound capture system.

Comments and requests for public hearing on the proposed revisions are due to DEP by May 2, 2014.  For additional information, contact Andrew Holway.
