- By:

Section 112(f)(2) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) requires the U.S. EPA to determine for source categories subject to Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards whether the emission standards provide an ample margin of safety to protect public health.  This assessment is carried out by the U.S. EPA in a two-step process that includes the primary objective of developing regulations to address any residual risk after implementation of the original Refinery MACT 1 and MACT 2 emission standards and work practices.  Following the risk assessment, the agency performs the prescribed second step of determining whether further requirements are necessary to provide an “ample margin of safety” under its evaluation of the original MACT rules.
