Could a refinery producing conventional gasoline composite samples up to one month, ship to another location and run testing there?

Yes. The regulations do not specify where or by whom the testing may be performed. The refiner or importer is ultimately responsible for sampling and testing each batch of conventional gasoline and reporting the results to EPA. Composite sampling is appropriate under the conditions specified at § 80.101(i)(2).(7/1/94)
