Supplementary Information

Description of Action: The EPA is providing notice that it has denied a petition for reconsideration of a final rule published in the Federal Register on September 19, 2012. The rule established new emission limits for hard and decorative chromium electroplating and chromium anodizing tanks, and steel pickling—HCl process facilities and hydrochloric acid regeneration plants, and was issued pursuant to the EPA's authority under sections 112(d)(6) and (f)(2) of the Clean Air Act (CAA). After publication of the rule, the EPA received a petition for reconsideration of the final rule from the National Association of Surface Finishers (NASF). After carefully considering the petition and supporting information, the Acting EPA Administrator, Bob Perciasepe, denied the petition for reconsideration on March 28, 2013, in a letter to the petitioner. The EPA denied the petition because it failed to meet the criteria for reconsideration in CAA section 307(d)(7)(B). The letter and an accompanying enclosure explain in detail the EPA's reasons for the denial.
