Clean Air Act

The Clean Air Act (CAA) of 1970 requires the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to develop and enforce regulations to protect the general public from exposure to airborne contaminants that are known to be hazardous to human health. In accordance with Section 112 of the CAA, EPA established National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants[?] (NESHAP) to protect the public.
