6 NYCRR Part 257, subparts 257-2 through 257-10, list the New York State Air Quality Standards (SAQS) promulgated by the Department over several decades. A number of these SAQS are outdated and have been superseded by Federal air quality standards and will be repealed or revised.  Several of the required test methods are also outdated and they have been replaced with new language allowing the testing methodology to evolve as analytical methods improve. The Division of Air Resources (DAR) proposes to revise or repeal portions of this regulation to achieve parity with federal standards and support the Department’s mission to preserve and protect air quality.
