This guidance describes how transportation conformity determinations are done in areas where multiple metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), states, and/or other agencies have jurisdiction in a nonattainment or maintenance area. This guidance updates and supersedes the July 2004 Companion Guidance for the July 1, 2004 Final Transportation Conformity Rule: Conformity Implementation in Multi-Jurisdictional Nonattainment and Maintenance Areas for Existing and New Air Quality Standards (EPA420-B-04-012). In the 2004 guidance, EPA clarified how transportation conformity determinations are completed where multiple agencies or states are involved in nonattainment and maintenance areas specifically for the 1997 ozone and PM2.5 National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). EPAs transportation conformity rule (40 CFR Parts 51 and 93) establishes the criteria and procedures for determining whether transportation plans, transportation improvement programs (TIPs), and federally funded or approved highway and transit projects are consistent with (conform to) state air quality goals.
