[28 Pa.B. 3109]

   The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) finalized the General Plan Approval and General Operating Permit No. BAQ-GPA/GP-7 for sheetfed offset lithographic printing press(es). Notice regarding the availability of the draft general permit was published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin on April 4, 1998 (28 Pa.B. 1678).

   The Sheetfed Press General Permit was drafted in consultation with the Graphic Arts Association and the Graphic Arts Technical Foundation. The Graphic Arts Technical Foundation has prepared guidance for the industry to determine if plants are subject to the permitting requirements, as well as, recordkeeping and reporting forms for showing compliance with the Sheetfed Press General Permit requirements. This guidance has been made a part of the application package.

   A 45-day comment period was provided but no comments were received. Due to internal discussions of Department personnel minor clarifying changes have been made to the second paragraph in Condition 2 of the Sheetfed Press General Permit.
