Section 211(l) of the Clean Air Act requires the Environmental Protection Agency to establish specifications for deposit control detergent additives. On November 22, 1993, the Environmental Protection Agency issued a notice of proposed rulemaking for standards for deposit control detergent additives. On October 15, 1994, EPA promulgated a final regulation (published in the Federal Register on November 1, 1994 (59 FR 54678)), with an interim program for detergent additives, which will be replaced by a full certification detergent program in a subsequent action.
