Rescission of Technical Guidance

DEP ID: 273-4000-008. Title: Policy for Sampling and Determination of Compliance with Low RVP Gasoline Requirements in the Pittsburgh-Beaver Valley Ozone Non-Attainment Area. Description: The Department is rescinding this TGD because the regulation on which it is based, 25 Pa. Code Chapter 126, Subchapter C (relating to gasoline volatility requirements), is no longer applicable. On December 20, 2018, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a final rule, effective January 22, 2019, approving a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision submitted by the Department to remove the gasoline volatility requirements for the Pittsburgh-Beaver Valley Area. Section 126.301(d) of 25 Pa. Code (relating to compliant fuel requirement) states that ''this subchapter will no longer be applicable to the Pittsburgh-Beaver Valley Area upon the effective date of approval by the EPA of the removal, suspension or replacement of this subchapter as a part of the Commonwealth's SIP.'' The nonapplicability of the regulation eliminates the requirements for sampling of gasoline for compliance purposes described in the TGD.

Contact: Questions regarding this TGD should be directed to Samantha Harmon at or (717) 705-7686.

Effective Date: February 9, 2019
