On November 2, 2016, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency proposed requirements that would apply to state, local, and tribal air agencies for implementing the 2015 National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ground-level ozone. The EPA revised both the health-based and welfare-based standards for ozone on October 1, 2015. This proposed action largely retains and updates the implementing regulations that apply for the 2008 ozone NAAQS, for purposes of the 2015 ozone standards, which creates stability in the planning process. This action also proposes two options for revoking the 2008 ozone NAAQS. The EPA is also seeking comment on a number of additional topics, including: (1) managing emissions from wildfires and wildland prescribed fires; (2) transportation conformity and general conformity; (3) contingency measures; (4) international transport and background ozone; and (5) additional policies for achieving emissions reductions. This webinar is intended to provide highlights of the proposed rule and address clarifying questions. To download a copy of the proposed rule or for more information go to
