Lowest achievable emissions rate is used by the Environmental Protection Agency to determine if emissions from a new or modified major stationary source are acceptable under SIP guidelines.

"LAER" standards are required when a new, stationary source is located in a non-attainment air-quality region. It is the most stringent air pollution standard above the best available control technology (BACT) and reasonably available control technology (RACT) standards.
