Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Ohio may require sources emitting TACs to obtain a permit-to-install. The Ohio list of TACs differs from the federal HAP list. In addition, applicable sources in the state must comply with the NESHAP standards, including the source-specific NESHAPs, also known as maximum achievable control technology (MACT) standards. Refer to the national section HAZARDOUS AIR POLLUTANTS for more information.
• Administration and enforcement. OEPA has been delegated authority by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to implement and enforce the federal HAP rules. OEPA also implements and enforces the state TAC requirements. Many counties have local air pollution control agencies that may be responsible for assisting OEPA in administering and enforcing requirements within their jurisdictions. See the state section AIR (REGULATORY OVERVIEW) for more information on local agencies.
