Recent amendments to the Montreal Protocol and U.S. EPA refrigerant management regulations in 40 CFR Part 82 will significantly impact refrigerant compliance programs at industrial, institutional, and commercial facilities. The revised international treaty, which is likely to go into effect in 2019, expands its focus from ozone depleting substances (ODS) to greenhouse gases (GHGs) through a phase out schedule for hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) such as R-134a and R-410A, which are some of the most commonly used refrigerants across the U.S. The U.S. EPA has already moved forward with initial changes to their regulations by disapproving the use of certain HFCs in specific end-uses and overhauling the refrigerant management regulations within 40 CFR Part 82, Subpart F. The revised Subpart F provisions contain numerous substantial updates, including extending the requirements to cover substitute refrigerants that do not contain ODS, lowering the leak rate thresholds that trigger repair requirements, adding leak inspection or monitoring requirements, adding numerous recordkeeping requirements, as well as numerous other updates with phased compliance deadlines of 1/1/2017, 1/1/2018, and 1/1/2019.

Operating scenarios hold the key to compliance for TheMiscellaneous Organic NESHAP, or MON in 40 CFR 63, Subpart FFFF. The MON operating scenario records are an ever-changing summary of MON applicability determinations and key compliance data, while the MON reporting requires facilities to submit initial operating scenario and notification of any updates as they occur. Given the wide breadth and quantity of data tracked, effective compliance with the operating scenario recordkeeping and reporting provisions can be a daunting task. To help aid these efforts, attendees for this webinar will be provided a detailed review of the extensive data required in a MON operating scenario records, a practical analysis of MON reporting for new operating scenarios and process changes, and a discussion of what a strong manage of change program should provide.
