Appendix A Flow RATA Observation Sheet
Note - The RATA observations suggested in this checklist, beginning with item 4, are for flow RATAs performed using Method 2. A detailed observer checklist is available and should be used for new Reference Methods 2F, 2G, and 2H. See CAMD=s website at:

H M L
3. RATA Observations
Unit Operation Conditions:
Check and record unit fuel and operating load. Is the load level stable throughout the RATA test?
The fuel should be a normal fuel listed in the monitoring plan (App. A, ' 6.5(a)).
For certification and recertification, must perform flow RATA at three loads for most units (only one load level is required for peaking units or bypass stacks). Regular QA Flow RATAs must be performed at a minimum of 2 loads (one load for: peaking units or bypass stacks; alternate tests if conducted semiannually; or units that conduct supporting 1-load test analysis) (App. A, ' 6.5.2).
Load During Test (Run/Load):
Daily Calibration Error Test performed prior to the RATA
