National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs):
Hazardous Air Pollutants and Small Business

NESHAPs are regulations that regulate specific processes, like dry cleaners, that use specific chemicals, like perchloroethylene, called a hazardous air pollutant. If you can change your chemicals to a chemical that is not one on the list of HAPs you can avoid the rule.

Below are the most commonly used small business NESHAPs with customized information for Utah. For a list of 25 common manufacturing processes and the chemicals regulated visit EPA’s National Environmental Compliance Assistance Clearing House. A complete list of all NESHAPs, there are almost 100, can be found at EPA’s Air Toxics Website.

A tip on how to use the EPA websites: Look for the guidance documents or implementation information, these documents explain the rules and will save you time understanding the rules. There are often example reporting and record keeping forms and these will help you meet the requirements of the rules.
