Texas Chapter 122 - Federal Operating Permits Program



§122.122.  Potential to Emit.

§122.122.  Potential To Emit.
As adopted by TCEQ November 20, 2002, effective December 11, 2002 (O-12).
Approved by EPA into the Texas SIP November 14, 2003 (68 FR 64543) effective December 15, 2003 (TXd41).

     (a)  For purposes of determining applicability of the Federal Operating Permit Program under this chapter, the owner or operator of stationary sources without any other federally-enforceable emission rate may limit their sources' potential to emit by maintaining a certified registration of emissions, which shall be federally-enforceable.  Emission rates in new source review permits under Chapter 116 of this title (relating to Control of Air Pollution by Permits for New Construction or Modification) and certified registrations provided for under Chapters 106 or 116 of this title are also federally-enforceable emission rates.

     (b)  All representations in any registration of emissions under this section with regard to emissions, production or operational limits, monitoring, and reporting shall become conditions upon which the stationary source shall operate.  It shall be unlawful for any person to vary from such representation unless the registration is first revised.

     (c)  The registration of emissions shall include documentation of the basis of emission rates and a certification, in accordance with §122.165 of this title (relating to Certification by a Responsible Official), that the maximum emission rates listed on the registration reflect the reasonably anticipated maximums for operation of the stationary source.

     (d)  In order to qualify for registrations of emissions under this section, the maximum emission rates listed in the registration must be less than those rates defined for a major source in §122.10 of this title (relating to General Definitions).

     (e)  The certified registrations of emissions shall be submitted to the executive director; to the appropriate commission regional office; and to all local air pollution control agencies having jurisdiction over the site.

          (1)  Certified registrations established prior to the effective date of this rule shall be submitted on or before February 3, 2003.

          (2)  Certified registrations established on or after the effective date of this rule shall be submitted no later than the date of operation.

     (f)  All certified registrations and records demonstrating compliance with a certified registration shall be maintained on-site and shall be provided, upon request, during regular business hours to representatives of the appropriate commission regional office and any local air pollution control agency having jurisdiction over the site.  If however, the site normally operates unattended, certified registrations and records demonstrating compliance with the certified registration must be maintained at an office within Texas having day-to-day operational control of the site.  Upon request, the commission shall make any such records of compliance available to the public in a timely manner.

As adopted by TCEQ November 20, 2002, effective December 11, 2002 (12-13).
