RULE 2:5 - STANDARDS FOR GRANTING APPLICATIONS FOR PERMITS
(Adopted 8/10/1971)

A. The Air Pollution Control Officer shall deny authorization to construct or permit to operate, except as provided in Rule 2:4, if the applicant does not show that every article, machine, equipment, or other contrivance, the use of which may cause the issuance of air contaminants, or the use of which may eliminate or reduce or control the issuance of air contaminants, is so designed, controlled, or with such air pollution control equipment that it may be expected to operate without causing to be emitted air contaminants in violation of all applicable state and local regulations.
   
B. No authority to construct or modify shall be granted unless the applicant shows to the satisfaction of the Air Pollution Control Officer that the new source, as designed or modified, does not endanger maintenance or attainment of any applicable ambient air quality standard.
   
C. Before authorization to construct or a permit to operate is granted the Air Pollution Control Officer 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, or quality of air contaminants discharged into the air from the facility described in the authorization or permit. In the event of such a requirement the Air Pollution Control Officer will provide specifications for such sampling facilities. Any platforms and access involved shall be constructed in accordance with the General Industry Safety Orders of the State of California.
   
D. The Air Pollution Control Officer shall deny a Permit to Operate if he finds that the article or equipment was not constructed in accordance with the Authority to Construct previously issued.
