For those Area Source facilities which are subject to the new EPA Boiler MACT (40 CFR Part 63, Subpart JJJJJ), an important deadline is fast approaching. The Notification of Compliance (NOC), due July 19, 2014, is required for all existing Area Source facilities which were required to complete either the One-time Energy Assessment or an initial Tune-up Work Practice. Both the Energy Assessment and Tune-up were due March 21, 2014.
Unlike previous compliance notification reports; however, the EPA has stated that they will not accept paper certifications. Instead, the report needs to be submitted using the EPA’s Compliance and Emissions Data Reporting Interface. CEDRI will be new to most users, but can be accessed through the same web-based server as that used to complete EPA Toxic Release Inventory Reports and Greenhouse Gas Summary Report. Be sure to check with local/state authorities to make sure that a separate location notification is not also required in paper format.
If you need any assistance setting up an account with CEDRI and/or filing the NOC, please contact Bay Environmental Strategies, Inc. at 888-576-2476.
