(4) A complete certificate of representation under §97.113 consistent with §97.182, if no CAIR designated representative has been previously designated for the source that includes the unit; and

(2) Unless the permitting authority issues a notification of acceptance of withdrawal of the CAIR NOX opt-in unit from the CAIR NOX Annual Trading Program in accordance with §97.186 or the unit becomes a CAIR NOX unit under §97.104, the CAIR NOX opt-in unit shall remain subject to the requirements for a CAIR NOX opt-in unit, even if the CAIR designated representative for the CAIR NOX opt-in unit fails to submit a CAIR permit application that is required for renewal of the CAIR opt-in permit under paragraph (b)(1) of this section.
