(Rev. Effective 6/16/78)

(a) Unless a waiver of emission testing is obtained under Rule 361.13, the owner or operator of a source to which this Subpart F applies shall test emissions from the source:

(1) Within 90 days of the effective date in the case of an existing source or a new source which has an initial startup date preceding the effective date; or

(2) Within 90 days of startup in the case of a new source, initial startup of which occurs after the effective date.

(b) The owner or operator shall notify the Control Officer at least 30 days prior to an emission test.

(c) Any emission test is to be conducted while the equipment being tested is operating at the maximum production rate at which the equipment will be operated and under other relevant conditions as may be specified by the Control Officer based on representative performance of the source.

(d) Each emission test is to consist of three runs. For the purpose of determining emissions, the average of results of all runs is to apply. The average is to be computed on a time weighted basis.

(e) All samples should be analyzed within 24 hours, but in no case in excess of 72 hours of sample collection. Vinyl chloride emissions are to be determined within 30 days after the emission test. The owner or operator shall report the determinations to the Control Officer by a registered letter dispatched before the close of the next business day following the determination.

(f) The owner or operator shall retain at the plant and make available, upon request for inspection by the Administrator or Control Officer, for a minimum of 2 years records.

(g) The owner or operator shall use test methods specified in Part 61, Title 40, Code of Federal Regulations, Section 61.17(g) to determine vinyl chloride emissions from any source for which an emission limit is prescribed in this Subpart F.
