Delaware adopted the federal MACT standard, i.e. the Subpart N requirements, as Section 6 of 7 DE Admin. Code 1138 on November 1, 2001 and later, amended Section 6 on September 1, 2013 to incorporate the more health-protective residual risk requirements.
Prior to that February 27 rulemaking, subsection §63.344(c) of Subpart N provided the owners or operators of affected chromium electroplating and chromium anodizing facilities up to 4 test methods to demonstrate compliance with the standard. In the February 27 final rule, the EPA provided the owners or operators subject to Subpart N with an optional 5th test method to select from by adding the South Coast Air Quality Management District “Test Method 205.1”. The Department is proposing to amend Section 6 by adding the same optional, alternative test method, in order (1) to maintain the consistency of Delaware’s air regulatory requirements under Section 6 with the national requirements under Subpart N and (2) to give owners or operators of Delaware’s affected facilities and their testers the additional flexibility to use the EPA’s newly approved testing alternative.

The Delaware Board of Examiners in Optometry, pursuant to 24 Del.C. §2104(a)(1), proposes to revise its regulations. The proposed regulatory overhaul seeks to bring the regulations into conformity with current law and remove outdated and inconsistent provisions. For example, the proposed changes update the ethics section to more succinctly define unprofessional conduct. In addition, the proposed changes remove several regulations which are nothing more than a verbatim recitation of the Board’s practice act and thus unnecessary.
