On June 28, 2013, King Pharmaceuticals LLC (“King”) agreed to pay a $2.2 million fine and take measures to comply with the Clean Air Act (CAA) to resolve alleged failures to comply with major source requirements at its pharmaceutical manufacturing facility located in Bristol, Tennessee.

The EPA’s PharmaMACT regulations impose “Maximum Achievable Control Technology” (MACT) standards, which are industry-specific measures that must be implemented to control hazardous air pollutants.
