Rule 119. As used in these rules:

(a) "Schedule of compliance" means, for purposes of R 336.1201 to R 336.1218, all of the following:
(i) For a source not in compliance with all applicable requirements at the time of issuance of a renewable operating permit, a schedule of remedial measures, including an enforceable sequence of actions or operations that specifies milestones, leading to compliance with an applicable requirement, and a schedule for submission of certified progress reports, at least every 6 months. The schedule shall resemble, and be at least as stringent as, a schedule contained in a judicial consent decree or administrative order to which the source is subject. A schedule shall be supplemental to, and shall not sanction noncompliance with, the applicable requirement on which it is based.
(ii) For a source in compliance with all applicable requirements at the time of issuance of a renewable operating permit, a statement that the source will continue to comply with the requirements.
(iii) With respect to any applicable requirement that has a future effective compliance date that is after the date of issuance and before the date of expiration of the renewable operating permit, the schedule of compliance shall contain a statement that the source will meet the requirement on a timely basis, unless the underlying applicable requirement requires a more detailed schedule.
(b) "Secondary emissions" means emissions which occur as a result of the construction or operation of a stationary source, but which do not come from the stationary source itself. Secondary emissions include only emissions that are specific, well-defined, quantifiable, and impact the same general area as the stationary source which causes the secondary emissions. Secondary emissions also include emissions from any off-site support facility which would not otherwise be constructed or increase its emissions except as a result of the construction or operation of the stationary source. Examples of secondary emissions include the following:
(i) Emissions from ships or trains coming to or going from a stationary source.
(ii) Emissions from any off-site support facility that would not otherwise be constructed or increase its emissions except as a result of the construction or operation of the stationary source.
(c) "Secondary risk screening level" means the concentration of a possible, probable, or known human carcinogen in ambient air which has been calculated, for regulatory purposes, according to the risk assessment procedures in R 336.1229(1), to produce an estimated upper-bound lifetime cancer risk of 1 in 100,000.
