          as provided in Section (b) of this rule.

               (b)  Rather than meet the requirement of Section (a) of this
          rule, an owner or operator may request approval from the Control
          Officer to meet an ambient concentration limit on beryllium in
          the vicinity of the stationary source of 0.01 /m3, averaged over
          a 30-day period.

                    (1)  Approval of such requests may be granted by the
               Control Officer provided that:

                    in the judgement of the Control Officer demonstrates
                    that the future ambient concentrations of beryllium in
                    the vicinity of the stationary source will not exceed
                    0.01 /m3, average over a 30-day period.  Such 3-year
                    period shall be the 3 years ending 30 days before the
                    effective date of this standard.

                         (ii) The owner or operator requests such approval
                    in writing within 30 days after the effective date of
                    this standard.

                         (iii)The owner or operator submits a report to the
                    Control Officer within 45 days after the effective date

               (c)  The burning of beryllium and/or beryllium-containing
          waste, except propellants, is prohibited except in incinerators,
          emissions from which must comply with the standard.


               RULE 361.33.   STACK SAMPLING

               (a)  Unless a waiver of emission testing is obtained under
          Rule 361.13, each owner or operator required to comply with Rule
          361.32(a) shall test emissions from his 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 the startup in the case of new
               source which did not have an initial startup date preceding
               the effective date.

               (b)  The Control Officer shall be notified at least 30 days
          prior to an emission test so that he may at his option observe
          the test.

               (c)  Samples shall be taken over such a period or periods as
          are necessary to accurately determine the maximum emissions which
          will occur in any 24-hour period.  Where emissions depend upon
          the relative frequency of operation of different types of
          processes, operating hours, operating capacities, or other
          factors, the calculation of maximum 24-hour period emissions will
          be based on the combination of factors which is likely to occur
          during the subject period and which result in the maximum
          emissions.  No changes in the operation shall be made, which
          would potentially increase emissions above that determined by the
          most recent source test, until a new emission level has been
          estimated by calculation and the results reported to the Control
          Officer.

               (d)  All samples shall be analyzed and beryllium emissions
          shall be determined within 30 days after the source test.  All
          determinations shall be reported to the Control Officer by a
          registered letter dispatched before the close of the next
          business day following such determination.

               (e)  Records of emission test results and other data needed
          to determine total emissions shall be retained at the source and
          made available, for inspection by the Control Officer, for a
          minimum of 2 years.


               RULE 361.34.   AIR SAMPLING

               (a)  Stationary sources subject to Rule 361.32(b) shall
          locate air sampling sites in accordance with a plan approved by
          the Control Officer.  Such sites shall be located in such a
          manner as is calculated to detect maximum concentrations of
          beryllium in the ambient air.

               (b)  All monitoring sites shall be operated continuously
          except for a reasonable time allowance for instrument maintenance
          and calibration, for changing filters, or for replacement of
          equipment needing major repair.

               (c)  Filters shall be analyzed and concentrations calculated
          within 30 days after filters are collected.  Records of
          concentrations at all sampling sites and other data needed to
          determine such concentrations shall be retained at the source and
          made available, for inspection by the Control Officer, for a
          minimum of 2 years.

               (d)  Concentrations measured at all sampling sites shall be
          reported to the Control Officer every 30 days by a registered
          letter.

               (e)  The Control Officer may at any time require changes in,
          or expansion of, the sampling network.
