17.8.1203 AIR QUALITY OPERATING PERMIT PROGRAM OVERVIEW
(1) This subchapter provides for the establishment of a comprehensive air quality operating permit system consistent with the requirements of Title V of the FCAA and the federal operating permit program (57 FR 32250 July 21, 1992, to be codified as 40 CFR Part 70) . These regulations, when viewed as a whole, are not invariably limited to the minimum federal requirements and do not invariably impose the strictest optional alternatives. No air quality operating permit issued under this subchapter may be less stringent than necessary to meet all applicable requirements.
(2) The requirements of this subchapter, including provisions regarding schedules for submission and approval or disapproval of air quality operating permit applications, shall apply to the permitting of affected sources under the acid rain program, except as provided herein or in regulations promulgated pursuant to Title IV of the FCAA.
