§63.3550   By what date must I conduct performance tests and initial compliance demonstrations?

(a) New and reconstructed affected sources. For a new or reconstructed source, you must meet the requirements of paragraphs (a)(1) through (4) of this section.

(1) All emission capture systems, add-on control devices, and CPMS must be installed and operating no later than the applicable compliance date specified in §63.3483. You must conduct according to the schedule in paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (ii) of this section initial and periodic performance tests of each capture system and add-on control device according to §§63.3553, 63.3554, and 63.3555 and establish the operating limits required by §63.3492.

(i) You must conduct the initial performance test and establish the operating limits required by §63.3492 no later than 180 days after the applicable compliance date specified in §63.3483.

(ii) If you are not required to complete periodic performance tests as a requirement of renewing your facility's operating permit under 40 CFR part 70 or 40 CFR part 71, you must conduct the first periodic performance test before March 25, 2023, unless you already have conducted a performance test on or after March 25, 2018. Thereafter you must conduct a performance test no later than 5 years following the previous performance test. Operating limits must be confirmed or reestablished during each performance test. If you are required to complete periodic performance tests as a requirement of renewing your facility's operating permit under 40 CFR part 70 or 40 CFR part 71, you must conduct the periodic testing in accordance with the terms and schedule required by your permit conditions.

(2) You must develop and begin implementing the work practice plan required by §63.3493 no later than the compliance date specified in §63.3483.

(3) You must complete the initial compliance demonstration for the initial compliance period according to the requirements of §63.3551. The initial compliance period begins on the applicable compliance date specified in §63.3483 and ends on the last day of the 12th month following the compliance date. If the compliance date occurs on any day other than the first day of a month, then the initial compliance period extends through the end of that month plus the next 12 months. The initial compliance demonstration includes the results of emission capture system and add-on control device performance tests conducted according to §63.3553, 63.3554, and 63.3555; the operating limits established during the performance tests and the results of the continuous parameter monitoring required by §63.3557; and documentation of whether you developed and implemented the work practice plan required by §63.3493.

(4) For the initial compliance demonstration, you do not need to comply with the operating limits for the emission capture system and add-on control device required by §63.3492 until after you have completed the initial performance tests specified in paragraph (a)(1) of this section. Instead, you must maintain a log detailing the operation and maintenance of the emission capture system, add-on control device, and continuous parameter monitors during the period between the compliance date and the performance test. You must begin complying with the operating limits established based on the initial performance tests specified in paragraph (a)(1) of this section on the date you complete the performance tests.

(b) Existing affected sources. For an existing affected source, you must meet the requirements of paragraphs (b)(1) through (3) of this section.

(1) All emission capture systems, add-on control devices, and CPMS must be installed and operating no later than the applicable compliance date specified in §63.3483. Except for solvent recovery systems for which you conduct liquid-liquid material balances according to §63.3541(i), you must conduct according to the schedule in paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (ii) of this section initial and periodic performance tests of each capture system and add-on control device according to the procedures in §§63.3543, 63.3544, and 63.3545 and establish the operating limits required by §63.3492.

(i) You must conduct the initial performance test and establish the operating limits required by §63.3492 no later than 180 days after the applicable compliance date specified in §63.3483.

(ii) If you are not required to complete periodic performance tests as a requirement of renewing your facility's operating permit under 40 CFR part 70 or 40 CFR part 71, you must conduct the first periodic performance test before March 25, 2023, unless you already have conducted a performance test on or after March 25, 2018. Thereafter you must conduct a performance test no later than 5 years following the previous performance test. Operating limits must be confirmed or reestablished during each performance test. If you are required to complete periodic performance tests as a requirement of renewing your facility's operating permit under 40 CFR part 70 or 40 CFR part 71, you must conduct the periodic testing in accordance with the terms and schedule required by your permit conditions.

(2) You must develop and begin implementing the work practice plan required by §63.3493 no later than the compliance date specified in §63.3483.

(3) You must complete the initial compliance demonstration for the initial compliance period according to the requirements of §63.3551. The initial compliance period begins on the applicable compliance date specified in §63.3483 and ends on the last day of the 12th month following the compliance date. If the compliance date occurs on any day other than the first day of a month, then the initial compliance period extends through the end of that month plus the next 12 months. The initial compliance demonstration includes the results of emission capture system and add-on control device performance tests conducted according to §§63.3553, 63.3554, and 63.3555; the operating limits established during the performance tests and the results of the continuous parameter monitoring required by §63.3557; and documentation of whether you developed and implemented the work practice plan required by §63.3493.
