             compounds are precursors for ozone);

        (ii) Any pollutant that is subject to any standard promulgated under section 111 of the Act;

        (iii) Any Class I or II substance subject to a standard promulgated under or established by title VI of the Act;

             Act, which have not been delisted pursuant to section 112(b)(3) of the Act, are not regulated NSR
             pollutants unless the listed hazardous air pollutant is also regulated as a constituent or precursor
             of a general pollutant listed under section 108 of the Act."
