Subpart 1.

In general.

Unless the requirements of Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, chapter I, part 51, appendix S, (1991), as incorporated in subpart 2a, are first satisfied, no person shall commence construction, as defined in appendix S, part (II), section (A), of a major stationary source or major modification in:

A.

a nonattainment area; or

B.

an attainment area or unclassifiable area if that major stationary source or major modification would cause or contribute to a violation of a national ambient air quality standard in a nonattainment area as determined by the significance levels established in Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, chapter I, part 51, appendix S, part III, (1991).
