RULE 4.4 - STANDARDS FOR GRANTING APPLICATIONS
(Adopted 8/91; Amended 11/93)
- Before Authorization to Construct or Permit to Operate is granted, the APCO may require the applicant to provide
and maintain such facilities as are necessary for sampling and testing purposes in order to secure information
that will disclose the nature, extent, quantity or degree of air contaminants discharged into the atmosphere from
the article, machine equipment or other contrivance described in the Authorization to Construct or Permit to Operate.
In the event of such a requirement, the APCO shall notify the applicant in writing of the required size, number
and location of sampling holes; the size and location of the sampling platform; the access to the sampling platform;
and the utilities for operating the sampling and testing equipment. The platform and access shall be constructed
in accordance with the General Industry Safety Orders of the State of California.
- In acting upon an application for a Permit to Operate, the APCO finds that the article, machine, equipment
or other contrivance has not been constructed in accordance with the Authorization to Construct, he shall deny
the Permit to Operate. The APCO shall not accept any further application for Permit to Operate the article, machine,
equipment or other contrivance so constructed until he finds that the article, machine, equipment or other contrivance
is in accordance with the Authorization to Construct.
- In acting upon an application for a Federal Operating Permit required pursuant to Rule 10.3, the Air Pollution
Control Officer may issue such a permit to a source not in compliance with an applicable federal requirement, provided
the application contains a schedule for compliance. Such schedule for compliance shall be part of a variance granted
by the District Hearing Board.(4.4c adopted 11-1-93)
- The fact that an Authorization to Construct or modify or a Permit to Operate an article, machine, equipment
or other contrivance described therein shall have been issued by the APCO shall not be an endorsement of such article,
machine, or other contrivance, nor shall it be deemed or construed to be a warranty, guarantee or representation
on the part of the APCO that emissions standards may not be exceeded by such article, machine, equipment or other
contrivance. In every instance, the person, firm, or corporation to who such authorization or permit is issued
shall be and remain responsible under these regulations for each and every instance wherein emission standards
are exceeded by the article, machine, equipment or other contrivance described in the permit, and the fact of issuance
or authorization shall not be a defense to or mitigation of any charge of violation.
