for the affected source could not be verified under the provisions of section 95103(a)(8)(A);
The fuel analytical data monitoring equipment cannot be promptly repaired or replaced without shutting down a process unit significantly affecting the facility operations, or that the monitoring equipment must be replaced and replacement equipment is not immediately available;
The interim procedure will not remain in effect longer than is reasonably necessary for repair or replacement of the malfunctioning data monitoring equipment; and
The request was submitted within 30 calendar days of the breakdown of the fuel analytical data monitoring equipment.
An operator seeking approval of an interim data collection procedure must, within 30 days of the monitoring equipment breakdown, submit a written request to the Executive Officer that includes all of the following:
The proposed start date and end date of the interim procedure;
A detailed description of what data are affected by the breakdown;
A discussion of the accuracy of data collected during the interim procedure compared with the data collected under the operator’s usual equipment-based method;
A demonstration that no feasible alternative procedure exists that would provide more accurate emissions data; and
A demonstration that the proposed interim procedure meets the criteria specified in section 95103(a)(10)(A).
The Executive Officer may limit the duration of the interim data collection procedure or include other conditions of approval to ensure the criteria in section 95103(a)(10)(A) are met.
Data collected pursuant to an approved interim data collection procedure shall be considered captured data for purposes of compliance with the capture rate requirements in section 95103(a)(8). When approving an interim data collection procedure, the Executive Officer shall determine whether the accuracy of data collected under the procedure is reasonably equivalent to data collected from properly functioning monitoring equipment, and if it is not, the relative accuracy to assign for purposes of assessing possible material misstatement under section 95131(b)(11) of this article.
