EPA has issued a Final Rule revising the requirements for how state, tribal, and local implementation plans (SIPs) under Section 110 of the Clean Air Act (CAA) are required to be submitted to the EPA. Specifically, EPA is providing state, tribal, and local air agencies an option for electronic submittal of SIPs, including any necessary supporting documents. The new electronic SIP (eSIP) submission system, is web-based and is supported by EPA’s Central Data Exchange. The effective date of this action is March 16, 2015.
