For the purpose of this rule, the following definitions shall apply:
 

  1. ALTERATION or MODIFICATION means any physical change, change in method of operation of, or addition to, an existing equipment requiring an application for Permit to Construct pursuant to Rule 201. Routine maintenance and/or repair shall not be considered a physical change. A change in the method of operation of equipment, unless previously limited by an enforceable permit condition, shall not include:
    1. An increase in the production rate, unless such increase will cause the maximum design capacity of the equipment to be exceeded; or
    2. An increase in the hours of operation.
  2. BANKING means the process of recognizing and certifying emission reductions and registering transactions involving emission reduction credits.
  3. CANCELLATION is an administrative action taken by the District which nullifies or voids a previously pending application for a permit.
  4. CERTIFIED EQUIPMENT PERMIT means a permit issued to a manufacturer or distributor for a specific model or series of models of equipment. By this permit, the District certifies that the equipment meets all District rules and Best Available Control Technology (BACT) requirements under a set of conditions. Eligibility for the certification process shall be limited to equipment for which the following conditions exist, as determined by the Air Pollution Control Officer (APCO):
    1. Equipment operation and emission characteristics will be applicable to a number of identical pieces of equipment;
    2. Permitting can be accomplished through the use of identical permit conditions for each piece of equipment regardless of use or location;
    3. The equipment is exempt from emission offsets as defined in Rule 1304(a)(4) or Rule 1304(a)(5); or the emissions of each criteria pollutant, except lead, are determined to be less than the limits listed in Rule 1303, Appendix A, Table A-1; and
    4. The equipment does not emit lead or the toxic emissions result in a Maximum Individual Cancer Risk (MICR) equal to or greater than one in a million as calculated according to Rule 1401.
    5. Certified Equipment Permit shall be valid for one year, and shall be renewed annually if the APCO determines the equipment meets all District rules and BACT requirements. Certification shall not relieve the person constructing, installing or operating the equipment from the requirement to obtain all necessary permits to construct and permits to operate, or from compliance with any other District rule including the requirements of Regulation XIII.
  1. CLEAN AIR SOLVENT is a VOC-containing material used to perform solvent cleaning, solvent finishing, or surface preparation operations or activities, which:
    1. Contains no more than fifty (50) grams of VOC per liter of material, as supplied;
    2. Exerts no more than five (5) mm Hg of VOC composite partial vapor pressure at 20oC (68oF);
    3. Reacts to form ozone at a rate not exceeding that of toluene;
    4. Contains no compounds classified as Toxic Air Contaminants (TACs) by the Federal Clean Air Act, or Ozone Depleting Compounds (ODCs) and Global Warming Compounds (GWCs) as defined by the District; and,
    5. Has been certified by the District to meet the criteria stated in subsections (B)(5)(a-d) inclusive, according to test methods and procedures approved by the District.
  2. CLEAN AIR SOLVENT CERTIFICATE is a certificate issued by the District to a manufacturer or distributor for a specific product or class of products that meet(s) the criteria for a Clean Air Solvent.
  3. CONTINUOUS EMISSIONS MONITORING SYSTEM (CEMS) is a system comprised of components that continuously measure all parameters necessary to determine pollutant concentration or pollutant mass emissions, pursuant to a District Rule or Regulation.
    1. For the purpose of this rule, a CEMS includes, but is not limited to, the following analyzers, monitors, components, systems, or equipment:
      1. Pollutant concentration analyzer(s) (e.g., NOx, SOx, CO, Total Sulfur) and associated sample collection, transport, and conditioning equipment, and data acquisition and logging systems,
      2. Diluent gas analyzer (O2 or CO2),
      3. Flow monitor (direct in-stack measurement or indirectly calculated from fuel usage or other process parameters approved by the APCO), and
      4. Other equipment (e.g., moisture monitor) as required to comply with monitoring requirements.
    2. For the purpose of this rule, a "time-shared CEMS" means a CEMS as described in subsection (B)(7)(a) which is common to several sources of emissions at the same facility.
    3. For the purpose of this rule, a "Fuel Sulfur Monitoring System" or "FSMS" may be used as an alternative to a CEMS SOx monitoring requirement, subject to District Rules and Regulations, and the approval of the APCO. An FSMS is a total sulfur monitoring system configured similar to the CEMS described in subsection (B)(7)(a) but, as an alternative to directly monitoring SOx emissions at sources required to have SOx CEMS (at the same facility), SOx emission information at each affected source is determined "indirectly" by monitoring the sulfur content of the fuel gas supply firing the affected sources.
    4. For the purpose of this rule, an "Alternative Continuous Emissions Monitoring System" or "ACEMS" (also known as a "Predictive or Parametric Emissions Monitoring System" or "PEMS") may be used as an alternative to a CEMS pollutant monitoring requirement, subject to District Rules and Regulations, and the approval of the APCO. Instead of directly monitoring the pollutant emissions at a source required to have a CEMS as in subsection (B)(7)(a), emission information is "predicted" by the ACEMS or PEMS by monitoring key equipment operating parameters (e.g., temperature, pressure) at the affected source, irrespective of exhaust gas or fuel supply analysis.
  4. EMISSION FACTOR means the amount of air contaminant emitted per unit of time or per unit of material handled, processed, produced, or burned.
  5. EMISSION REDUCTION CREDIT (ERC) means the amount of emissions reduction which is verified and determined by the APCO to be eligible for credit in an emissions reduction bank.
  6. EQUIPMENT means any article, machine, or other contrivance, or combination thereof, which may cause the issuance or control the issuance of air contaminants, and which:
    1. Requires a permit pursuant to Rules 201 and/or 203; or
    2. Is in operation pursuant to the provisions of Rule 219.
  7. EXPIRATION means the end of the period of validity for an application, Permit to Operate, or a temporary Permit to Operate.
  8. FACILITY means any source, equipment, or grouping of equipment or sources, or other air contaminant-emitting activities which are located on one or more contiguous properties within the District, in actual physical contact or separated solely by a public roadway or other public right-of-way, and are owned or operated by the same person (or persons under common control) or an outer continental shelf (OCS) source as defined in 40 CFR § 55.2. Such above-described groupings, if on noncontiguous properties but connected only by land carrying a pipeline, shall not be considered one facility. Equipment or installations involved in crude oil and gas production in Southern California coastal or OCS waters, and transport of such crude oil and gas in Southern California coastal or OCS waters, shall be included in the same facility which is under the same ownership or use entitlement as the crude oil and gas facility on-shore.
  9. FACILITY REGISTRATION is a permit which consolidates existing equipment permits and all new equipment at a facility into one permit. A Facility Registration may be issued at District discretion to any facility not subject to Regulation XXX.
  10. NON-ROAD ENGINE is a portable engine that requires a permit and is certified by the APCO to be a Non-Road Engine regulated by U.S. EPA pursuant to 40 CFR Part 89.
  11. PREMISES means one parcel of land or contiguous parcels of land under the same ownership or entitlement to use, not including the parcels which are remotely located and connected only by land carrying a pipeline.
  12. QUALIFYING PORTABLE ENGINE is a portable engine that requires a permit and is certified by the APCO to meet all the requirements of Non-Road Engine of 40 CFR Part 89 except date of manufacture, and has been demonstrated to meet the emission limitations of 40 CFR Section 89.112-96.
  13. REGISTRATION PERMIT means a permit to construct or permit to operate issued to an owner/operator of equipment which has previously been issued a Certified Equipment Permit by the District. The owner/operator shall agree to operate under the conditions specified in the Certified Equipment Permit.
  14. REVOCATION is an action taken by the Hearing Board following a petition by the APCO which invalidates a Permit to Construct or a Permit to Operate.
  15. SIMILAR EQUIPMENT means any number of equipment which are of the same type, are used in a functionally identical manner, are to be operated by the same operator, have the same equipment address, and have the same operating conditions and processing material to the extent that a single permit evaluation would be required for the set of equipment. Portable equipment, while not operating at the same location, may qualify as similar equipment.
  16. SMALL BUSINESS is as defined in District Rule 102 as "Small Business."
  17. SPECIFIC ORGANIC GASES are any of the following compounds:
      trifluoromethane (HFC-23)
      chlorodifluoromethane (HCFC-22)
      dichlorotrifluoroethane (HCFC-123)
      tetrafluoroethane (HFC-134a)
      dichlorofluoroethane (HCFC-141b)

  5. Renewal of Temporary Permit to Operate Existing Equipment
    1. In the case of equipment operating under a temporary Permit to Operate issued pursuant to District Rule 202 (c), where a Permit to Construct was not issued, the company is immediately subject to a prorated amount of the annual operating permit renewal fee prescribed in subsection (D)(2) following the submission of the completed application for Permit to Operate. The proration shall be based on the time remaining to the next annual renewal date. On that next annual renewal date, and each year thereafter, the annual operating permit renewal fee shall be due in the amount prescribed in subsection (D)(2). If no annual renewal date has been established, the APCO shall set one upon receipt of the application.
  6. If, for any reason, the APCO determines it is necessary to change the annual renewal date, all annual operating permit renewal fees shall be prorated according to the new annual renewal date.
  7. The same annual renewal date shall apply from one change of operator to another.
  8. Notice of Amount Due and Nonpayment Penalties
    1. At least thirty (30) days before the annual renewal date, the owner/operator of equipment under permit will be notified by mail of the amount to be paid and the due date. If such notice is not received at least thirty (30) days before the annual renewal date, the owner/operator of equipment under permit shall notify the District on or before the permit renewal date that said notice was not received. The annual operating permit renewal fee for each permit shall be in the amount described in subsection (D)(2). If the annual operating permit renewal fee is not paid within thirty (30) days after the due date, the permit will expire and no longer be valid. In such a case, the owner/operator will be notified by mail of the expiration and the consequences of operating equipment without a valid permit, as required by District Rule 203 Permit to Operate. For the purpose of this paragraph, the fee payment will be considered to be received by the District if it is postmarked by the United States Postal Service on or before the expiration date stated on the billing notice. If the expiration date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or a state holiday, the fee payment may be postmarked on the next business day following the Saturday, Sunday, or state holiday with the same effect as if it had been postmarked on the expiration date.
  9. Any person holding permits to operate for two or more emission controls applicable to the same equipment who establishes that any of the emission controls is redundant, i.e., not necessary to assure compliance with all applicable legal requirements, shall not be required to pay annual operating permit renewal fees under section (D) for the redundant equipment. The APCO may reinstate the obligation to pay such fees at any time upon determination that operating the control is or has become necessary to assure compliance with any applicable legal requirements.

(E) Annual Operating Permit Emissions Fee

  1. In addition to the annual operating permit renewal fee, the owner/operator of all equipment operating under permit shall pay an annual operating permit emissions fee based on the total weight of emissions of each of the contaminants specified in Table III from all equipment used by the operator at all locations, including total weight of emissions of each of the contaminants specified in Table III resulting from all products which continue to passively emit air contaminants after they are manufactured, or processed by such equipment, with the exception of such product that is shipped or sold out of the District so long as the manufacturer submits records which will allow for the determination of emissions within the District from such products.
  2. Emissions from equipment not requiring a written permit pursuant to Regulation II shall be reported but not incur a fee for emissions so long as the owner/operator keeps separate records which allow the determination of emissions from such non-permitted equipment.
  3. An owner/operator shall not pay a fee for emissions from the use of Clean Air Solvents issued a valid Certificate from the District so long as the facility submits separate records which allow the determination of annual emissions, usage, and identification of such products. A copy of the Clean Air Solvent certificate issued to the manufacturer or distributor shall be submitted with the separate records.
  4. Emission Fee Thresholds
    1. Each facility shall be assessed a fee, as prescribed in Table III, for every ton per year (TPY) of emissions greater than or equal to the threshold amount of the contaminant(s) listed below:
             
            Air  
            contaminant(s)
            Annual emissions threshold (TPY)

            Carbon monoxide >100 TPY
             
  5. Clean Fuels Fee Thresholds
    1. Each source emitting 250 tons or more per year (>250 TPY) of any of the above referenced contaminants shall pay an annual clean fuels fee as prescribed in Table V (California Health and Safety Code §40512).
  6. Each source emitting a toxic air contaminant or ozone depleter as listed in Table IV shall be assessed an annual operating permit emissions fee as indicated therein.
    1. In lieu of calculating benzene emissions from gasoline dispensing equipment, fee rates shall be assessed at a rate of $0.017 per thousand gallons of gasoline dispensed from a bulk loading facility.
    2. Any dry cleaning facility that emits less than two (2) tons per year of perchloroethylene, and qualifies as a small business as defined in the general definition of District Rule 102, shall be exempt from fees listed in Table IV. This provision shall be retroactive to include the July 10, 1992, rule amendment which included perchloroethylene in Table IV.
    3. Any facility that emits less than two (2) tons per year of formaldehyde, perchloroethylene, or methylene chloride, may petition the APCO, at least thirty (30) days prior to the official submittal date of declaration of emissions as specified in subsection (E)(4), for exemption from formaldehyde, perchloroethylene, or methylene chloride fees as listed in Table IV. Exemption from emissions fees shall be granted if the facility demonstrates that no alternatives to the use of these substances exist, no control technologies exist, and that the facility qualifies as a small business as defined in the general definition of District Rule 102.
  7. Declaration of Total Emissions from Preceding Reporting Period and Unreported or Under-reported Emissions from Prior Reporting Periods
    1. The owner/operator of equipment subject to subsections (E)(1), (E)(2), and (E)(3) shall declare to the APCO the total emissions for the immediate preceding reporting period of each of the air contaminants concerned from all equipment. The declaration shall be made at the time and in the manner prescribed by the APCO. The permit holder shall report the total emissions for the twelve (12) month period reporting for each air contaminant concerned from all equipment or processes, regardless of the quantities emitted.
    2. Beginning July 1, 1994, the reporting period for annual operating permit emissions fees shall be from July 1 of a given year through June 30 of the following year.
    3. The APCO will determine default emission factors applicable to each piece of permitted equipment or group of permitted equipment, and provide them to the owner/operator in a general mailing, or upon request. In determining emission factors, the APCO will use the best available data. A facility owner/operator can provide alternative emission factors that more accurately represent actual facility operations subject to the approval of the APCO.
    4. A facility owner/operator shall declare to the APCO, in the same manner, and quantify any emissions of air contaminants in previous reporting periods which had not been reported correctly under the requirements in effect in the reporting period in which the emissions occurred and should have been reported.
  8. Notice to Pay and Late Filing Penalties
    1. A notice to pay the fee specified in this subdivision and a declaration of emissions form package will be mailed annually to the owners/operators of all equipment (as shown in District records) to which this subdivision applies. A notice to pay the semi-annual fee specified in subsection (E)(6) will also be mailed to facilities which in the preceding reporting year emitted ten (10) tons or more of any one of the following air contaminants: gaseous sulfur compounds (expressed as sulfur dioxide), total organic gases (excluding methane, specific organic gases, and contaminants listed in Table IV), specific organic gases, oxides of nitrogen (expressed as nitrogen dioxide), or total particulate matter (excluding particulate toxic air contaminants listed in Table IV), or in excess of 100 tons per year for carbon monoxide as listed in Table III. The annual or semi-annual emissions fee payments are the responsibility of the owner/operator. Fees are due and payable immediately on receipt of the notice to pay. If the fee payment and the completed declaration of emissions (for annual emission reporting) are not received by the sixtieth (60th) day following January 1st or July 1st as applicable, it shall be considered late; and penalties for late payment shall be imposed as set forth in subsection (E)(5)(B). For the purpose of this paragraph, emissions fee payment shall be considered to be timely received by the District if it is postmarked on or before the sixtieth (60th) day following January 1st or July 1st as applicable. If the sixtieth (60th) day falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or a state holiday, the fee payment and declaration of emissions may be postmarked on the next business day following the Saturday, Sunday, or the state holiday with the same effect as if it had been postmarked on the sixtieth (60th) day. Those facilities receiving notices to pay semi-annual fees shall also be subject to subsection (E)(6).
    2. If no fee payment is received within the time prescribed by subsection (E)(5)(a), a late payment penalty shall be assessed and added to the original amount of the emission fee due according to the following schedule:
     
             
              1. Less than 30 days
              1. 5% of reported amount
              1. 30 to 90 days
              1. 15% of reported amount
              1. 91 days to 1 year
              1. 25% of reported amount
              1. More than 1 year
              1. (See subsections (E)(5)(d)
             
    1. If an emission fee is timely paid, and if, within one year after the sixtieth (60th) day from the official due date is determined to be less than ninety percent (90%) of the full amount that should have been paid, a fifteen percent (15%) penalty shall be added, and is calculated based on the difference between the amount actually paid and the amount that should have been paid, to be referred to as underpayment. If payment was ninety percent (90%) or more of the correct amount due, the difference or underpayment shall be paid but with no penalties added. The fee rate to be applied shall be the fee rate in effect for the year in which the emissions actually occurred. If the underpayment is discovered after one (1) year and sixty (60) days from the official fee due date, fee rates and penalties will be assessed based on subsection (E)(5)(d).
    2. The fees due and payable for the emissions reported or reportable pursuant to subsection (E)(4)(d) shall be assessed according to the fee rate for that contaminant specified in Tables III, IV, and V, and further increased by fifty percent (50%). The fee rate to be applied shall be the fee rate in effect for the year in which the emissions are actually reported, and not the fee rate in effect for the year the emissions actually occurred.
    3. If one hundred twenty (120) days have elapsed since January 1 or July 1 as applicable, and all emission fees including any penalty have not been paid in full, the APCO may take action to revoke all Permits to Operate for equipment on the premises, as authorized in Health and Safety Code § 42307.
  1. Semi-Annual Emissions Fee Payment
    1. For facilities emitting the threshold amount of the contaminant(s) listed below, the APCO will estimate one half (1/2) of the previous annual emission fees and request that the permit holder pay such an amount as the first installment on annual emission fees for the period of July 1 through June 30. This fee is due by January 1 of each year.
             
            Air  
            contaminant(s)
            Annual emissions threshold (TPY)
