Consistent with OAR 340-218-0050 (Standard Permit Requirements)(3), compliance certification, testing, monitoring, reporting, and recordkeeping requirements sufficient to assure compliance with the terms and conditions of the permit.


A requirement that any document (including but not limited to reports) required by an Oregon Title V Operating Permit must contain a certification by a responsible official or the designated representation for the acid rain portion of the permit that meets the requirements of OAR 340-218-0040 (Permit Applications)(5).


Inspection and entry requirements that require that, upon presentation of credentials and other documents as may be required by law, the permittee must allow DEQ or an authorized representative to perform the following:


Enter upon the permittee’s premises where an Oregon Title V Operating Permit program source is located or emissions-related activity is conducted, or where records must be kept under the conditions of the permit;


Have access to and copy, at reasonable times, any records that must be kept under the conditions of the permit;


Inspect at reasonable times any facilities, equipment (including monitoring and air pollution control devices), practices, or operations regulated or required under the permit; and


As authorized by the FCAA or state rules, sample or monitor at reasonable times substances or parameters for the purpose of assuring compliance with the permit or applicable requirements.


A schedule of compliance consistent with OAR 340-218-0040 (Permit Applications)(3)(n)(c).


Progress reports consistent with an applicable schedule of compliance and OAR 340-218-0040 (Permit Applications)(3)(n)(c) to be submitted at least semi-annually, or at a more frequent period if specified in the applicable requirement or by DEQ. Such progress reports must contain the following:


Dates for achieving the activities, milestones, or compliance required in the schedule of compliance, and dates when such activities, milestones or compliance were achieved; and


An explanation of why any dates in the schedule of compliance were not or will not be met, and any preventive or corrective measures adopted.


Requirements for compliance certification with terms and conditions contained in the permit, including emission limitations, standards, or work practices. Permits must include each of the following:


The frequency (not less than annually or such more frequent periods as specified in the applicable requirement or by DEQ) of submissions of compliance certifications;


Under OAR 340-218-0050 (Standard Permit Requirements)(3), a means for monitoring the compliance of the source with its emissions limitations, standards, and work practices;


A requirement that the compliance certification include all of the following (provided that the identification of applicable information may cross-reference the permit or previous reports, as applicable):


The identification of each term or condition of the permit that is the basis of the certification;


The identification of the method or other means used by the owner or operator for determining the compliance status with each term and condition during the certification period. Such methods and other means must include, at a minimum, the methods and means required under OAR 340-218-0050 (Standard Permit Requirements)(3). If necessary, the owner or operator also must identify any other material information that must be included in the certification to comply with section 113(c)(2) of the FCAA, which prohibits knowingly making a false certification or omitting material information;


The status of compliance with the terms and conditions of the permit for the period covered by the certification, including whether compliance during the period was continuous or intermittent. The certification must be based on the method or means designated in paragraph (6)(c)(B). The certification must identify each deviation and take it into account in the compliance certification. The certification must also identify as possible exceptions to compliance any periods during which compliance is required and in which an excursion or exceedance as defined under OAR 340-200-0020 (General Air Quality Definitions) and 40 CFR part 64 occurred; and


Such other facts as DEQ may require to determine the compliance status of the source.

Annual certification that the risk management plan is being properly implemented, OAR 340-244-0230.


Such other provisions as DEQ may require in order to protect human health or the environment.
