used in evaluating the  relative cost-effectiveness of various options

for the control of  emissions from existing stationary sources  of air

pollutants which  contribute to nonattainment of  the national ambient

air quality standards for ozone.

   "(e) Control of Emissions From Certain Sources.-

      "(1) Definitions.-For purposes of this subsection-

         "(A)  Best  available  controls.-The  term  `best  available

      controls'  means the  degree  of emissions  reduction that  the

      Administrator  determines, on  the basis  of technological  and

      economic   feasibility,   health,  environmental,   and  energy

      impacts,  is achievable  through  the application  of the  most

      effective equipment,  measures, processes, methods,  systems or

      techniques,  including  chemical   reformulation,  product   or

      feedstock  substitution, repackaging,  and directions  for use,

      consumption, storage, or disposal.

         "(B) Consumer or commercial  product.-The term `consumer  or

      commercial  product'  means any  substance,  product (including

      paints,  coatings, and  solvents),  or article  (including  any

      container  or   packaging)  held   by  any  person,   the  use,

      consumption, storage, disposal,  destruction, or  decomposition

      of  which  may  result  in  the  release  of  volatile  organic

      compounds.  The term does  not include fuels  or fuel additives

      regulated  under  section  211,  or  motor  vehicles,  non-road

      vehicles, and non-road engines as defined under section 216.

         "(C) Regulatedentities.-The term `regulated entities' means-

           "(i)  manufacturers, processors,  wholesale  distributors,

         or importers of consumer or commercial products for sale  or

         or importers  that supply  the entities  listed under clause

         (i)  with   such  products  for   sale  or  distribution  in

         interstate commerce in the United States.

      "(2) Study and report.-

         "(A) Study.-The  Administrator shall conduct  a study of the

      emissions of  volatile organic  compounds into the  ambient air

      from  consumer  and  commercial products  (or  any  combination

      thereof) in order to-

           "(i)  determine their  potential  to contribute  to  ozone

         levels  which  violate  the  national  ambient  air  quality

         standard for ozone; and

           "(ii)  establish  criteria  for  regulating  consumer  and

         commercial products  or classes or  categories thereof which

         shall be subject to control under this subsection.

      The study shall be completed and a report submitted to Congress

      not later than  3 years after the date of  the enactment of the

      Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990.  

         "(B) Consideration  of certain factors.-In establishing  the

      criteria  under subparagraph  (A)(ii), the  Administrator shall

      take into consideration each of the following:

           "(i)  The  uses,   benefits,  and  commercial   demand  of

         consumer and commercial products.

           "(ii)  The health or safety  functions (if  any) served by

         such consumer and commercial products.

           "(iii) Those  consumer and commercial products  which emit
