Terms used but not defined in this subpart shall have the meaning given them in the Act and in subpart A:
(a) Designated pollutant means any air pollutant, the emissions of which are subject to a standard of performance for new stationary sources, but for which air quality criteria have not been issued and that is not included on a list published under section 108(a) of the Act. Designated pollutant also means any air pollutant, the emissions of which are subject to a standard of performance for new stationary sources, that is on the section 112(b)(1) list and is emitted from a facility that is not part of a source category regulated under section 112. Designated pollutant does not include pollutants on the section 112(b)(1) list that are emitted from a facility that is part of a source category regulated under section 112.
(b) Designated facility means any existing facility (see § 60.2(aa)) which emits a designated pollutant and which would be subject to a standard of performance for that pollutant if the existing facility were an affected facility (see § 60.2(e) ).

(d) Applicable plan means the plan, or most recent revision thereof, which has been approved under § 60.27(b) or promulgated under § 60.27(d).
(e) Emission guideline means a guideline set forth in subpart C of this part, or in a final guideline document published under § 60.22(a), which reflects the degree of emission reduction achievable through the application of the best system of emission reduction which (taking into account the cost of such reduction) the Administrator has determined has been adequately demonstrated for designated facilities.
(f) Emission standard means a legally enforceable regulation setting forth an allowable rate of emissions into the atmosphere, establishing an allowance system, or prescribing equipment specifications for control of air pollution emissions.
(g) Compliance schedule means a legally enforceable schedule specifying a date or dates by which a source or category of sources must comply with specific emission standards contained in a plan or with any increments of progress to achieve such compliance.
(h) Increments of progress means steps to achieve compliance which must be taken by an owner or operator of a designated facility, including:
(1) Submittal of a final control plan for the designated facility to the appropriate air pollution control agency;
(2) Awarding of contracts for emission control systems or for process modifications, or issuance of orders for the purchase of component parts to accomplish emission control or process modification;
(3) Initiation of on-site construction or installation of emission control equipment or process change;
(4) Completion of on-site construction or installation of emission control equipment or process change; and
(5) Final compliance.
(i) Region means an air quality control region designated under section 107 of the Act and described in part 81 of this chapter.
(j) Local agency means any local governmental agency.
(k) Allowance system means a control program under which the owner or operator of each designated facility is required to hold an authorization for each specified unit of a designated pollutant emitted from that facility during a specified period and which limits the total amount of such authorizations available to be held for a designated pollutant for a specified period and allows the transfer of such authorizations not used to meet the authorization-holding requirement.
