View Infrastructure SIP Contacts  |  View Infrastructure Requirements List

The Clean Air Act requires states to submit state implementation plans (SIPs) that implement, maintain, and enforce a new or revised national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS) within 3 years of EPA issuing the standard. These SIP revisions must address a number of basic requirements, including:

  • ambient air quality monitoring and data systems,
  • programs for enforcement of control measures,
  • adequate authority and resources to implement the plan.
