However, in such situations, the semiannual monitoring report must cross-reference the semiannual compliance report, and submission of a semiannual compliance report does not otherwise affect any obligation you may have to report deviations from permit requirements for an affected source to your permitting authority under 40 CFR part 70 or 40 CFR part 71.

(e) The owner or operator must submit semiannual compliance reports in PDF formatto the EPA viaCEDRI, which can be accessedthrough EPA's CDX (https://cdx.epa.gov/).
