§ 60.4154 Compliance with Hg budget emissions limitation.
(a) Allowance transfer deadline. The Hg allowances are available to be deducted for compliance with a source's Hg Budget emissions limitation for a control period in a given calendar year only if the Hg allowances:
(1) Were allocated for the control period in the year or a prior year;
(2) Are held in the compliance account as of the allowance transfer deadline for the control period or are transferred into the compliance account by a Hg allowance transfer correctly submitted for recordation under §§ 60.4160 through 60.4162 by the allowance transfer deadline for the control period; and
(3) Are not necessary for deductions for excess emissions for a prior control period under paragraph (d) of this section.
(b) Deductions for compliance. Following the recordation, in accordance with §§ 60.4160 through 60.4162, of Hg allowance transfers submitted for recordation in a source's compliance account by the allowance transfer deadline for a control period, the Administrator will deduct from the compliance account Hg allowances available under paragraph (a) of this section in order to determine whether the source meets the Hg Budget emissions limitation for the control period, as follows:
(1) Until the amount of Hg allowances deducted equals the number of ounces of total Hg emissions, determined in accordance with §§ 60.4170 through 60.4176, from all Hg Budget units at the source for the control period; or
(2) If there are insufficient Hg allowances to complete the deductions in paragraph (b)(1) of this section, until no more Hg allowances available under paragraph (a) of this section remain in the compliance account.
(c)
(1) Identification of Hg allowances by serial number. The Hg authorized account representative for a source's compliance account may request that specific Hg allowances, identified by serial number, in the compliance account be deducted for emissions or excess emissions for a control period in accordance with paragraph (b) or (d) of this section. Such request shall be submitted to the Administrator by the allowance transfer deadline for the control period and include, in a format prescribed by the Administrator, the identification of the Hg Budget source and the appropriate serial numbers.
(2) First-in, first-out. The Administrator will deduct Hg allowances under paragraph (b) or (d) of this section from the source's compliance account, in the absence of an identification or in the case of a partial identification of Hg allowances by serial number under paragraph (c)(1) of this section, on a first-in, first-out (FIFO) accounting basis in the following order:
(i) Any Hg allowances that were allocated to the units at the source, in the order of recordation; and then
(ii) Any Hg allowances that were allocated to any unit and transferred and recorded in the compliance account pursuant to §§ 60.4160 through 60.4162, in the order of recordation.
(d) Deductions for excess emissions.
(1) After making the deductions for compliance under paragraph (b) of this section for a control period in a calendar year in which the Hg Budget source has excess emissions, the Administrator will deduct from the source's compliance account an amount of Hg allowances, allocated for the control period in the immediately following calendar year, equal to 3 times the number of ounces of the source's excess emissions.
(2) Any allowance deduction required under paragraph (d)(1) of this section shall not affect the liability of the owners and operators of the Hg Budget source or the Hg Budget units at the source for any fine, penalty, or assessment, or their obligation to comply with any other remedy, for the same violation, as ordered under the Clean Air Act or applicable State law.
(e) Recordation of deductions. The Administrator will record in the appropriate compliance account all deductions from such an account under paragraph (b) or (d) of this section.
(f) Administrator's action on submissions.
(1) The Administrator may review and conduct independent audits concerning any submission under the Hg Budget Trading Program and make appropriate adjustments of the information in the submissions.
(2) The Administrator may deduct Hg allowances from or transfer Hg allowances to a source's compliance account based on the information in the submissions, as adjusted under paragraph (f)(1) of this section.
