The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for NSPS for Fossil Fuel Fired Steam Generating Units (40 CFR Part 60 Subpart D) apply to each fossil fuel fired steam generating unit with heat input rate of 73 megawatts (MW) (250 MMbtu/hr) or more, which commenced construction, reconstruction, or modification after August 17, 1971. Subpart D regulations apply to both electric utility and industrial boilers. Owners and operators of affected facilities are required to comply with reporting and record keeping requirements for the General Provisions (40 CFR Part 60, Subpart A), as well as for the specific requirements at 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart D. This includes submitting initial notifications, performance tests and periodic reports and results, and maintaining records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These reports are used by EPA to determine compliance with these standards.
