The title of Appendix H will be changed from “de minimis facilities” to “de minimis activities”. References to permit by rule will be deleted from Subchapter 5 and language will be added to require permit exempt facilities to file periodic emission inventories and to exempt them from the requirement to pay annual operating fees. The provision for permit by rule will be deleted from Subchapter 7 and replaced with permit exempt facility.
