Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. The federal rules for the management of chlorofluorocarbon (CFC), hydrochlorofluorocarbons, and other ozone depleting substances are effective in New York, although the state has not incorporated the rules into its own regulations. There are no state regulations pertaining to CFC management. See the national section CFC MANAGEMENT for more information.

New York requires facilities that emit or have the potential to emit more than 100 tons of a regulated pollutant to submit an emissions statement to DEC. A regulated pollutant includes Class I and Class II ozone-depleting compounds. See the state section AIR EMISSIONS PERMITS for more information on emissions statements.

Administration and enforcement. EPA administers and enforces the CFC management requirements. DEC administers and enforces the state's air emissions regulations. New York City DEP works in conjunction with DEC to administer and enforce the state regulations within New York City.
