The Advanced NSR Workshop provides a comprehensive working
knowledge of the manner in which EPA is interpreting the Clean Air
Act New Source Review (NSR) rules and the documents that establish
EPA NSR policies. One of our instructors is Gary McCutchen, a
Principal in the RTP Raleigh, NC office and former Chief of
EPA’s NSR Section. Mr. McCutchen is widely regarded as the
leading authority on NSR and PSD and has instructed thousands of
professionals on the intricacies of the regulations, EPA policy,
and practical implementation. This course assumes a basic
knowledge of the NSR air pollution permitting rules. It highlights
the most important of the over 2,200 policy documents issued since
1974 interpreting the NSR rules. Both the Prevention of
Significant Deterioration (PSD) NSR program (which applies in
attainment and unclassifiable areas) and the Nonattainment Area
NSR program are covered in this course.
Workshop attendees include professionals from industry, various
law and consulting firms, and agencies. The diverse backgrounds
and levels of experience of the attendees lead to extremely
informative and productive discussions, which are an important
benefit. As attendees have the opportunity to become more informed
about many of the finer points of NSR, they enhance their
opportunity to work together productively in the future.
The workshops are conveniently scheduled twice a year at various
locations. Private workshops are available on request and have
proven particularly popular with agencies. The workshops are 4
full days in length.
