Tenn. Comp. R. & Regs. 1200-03-27-.02 - GENERAL PROVISIONS AND APPLICABILITY

(1) It is the purpose of this chapter to establish emission standards and requirements for certain sources of nitrogen oxides.
(2) Upon mutual agreement of any air contaminant source and the Technical Secretary, an emission limit more restrictive than that otherwise specified in this chapter may be established. Also, upon mutual agreement of any air contaminant source and the Technical Secretary, operating hours, process flow rates, or any other operating parameter may be established as a binding limit which the source must adhere to. Any items mutually agreed to shall be stated as a special condition for any permit or order concerning the source. Violation of this mutual agreement shall result in enforcement action.
(3) Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to exempt sources from meeting other applicable rules in this division and standards and requirement derived from or according to rules of this division, including, but not limited to, new source review requirements, permit conditions, and standards and requirements mutually agreed to or included in the State Implementation Plan.
(4) No owner or operator subject to these regulations may build, erect, install, or use any article, machine, equipment, process, or other method the use of which conceals emissions that would otherwise constitute non-compliance with an applicable regulation. This includes, but is not limited to, the use of gaseous diluents to achieve compliance, and the piecemeal carrying out of an operating to avoid coverage by a regulation that applies only to operations larger than a specified size.
(5) The owner or operator of a source for which legal notice must be published to effect a source-specific compliance method, compliance demonstration method, record keeping record, reporting record, etc., shall be responsible for all costs associated with publishing the required legal notice.
(6) The owner or operator of any facility in Anderson, Blount, Davidson, Knox, Rutherford, Shelby, Sumner, Williamson, or Wilson County which has actual emissions from stationary sources of 25 tons or more of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and/or nitrogen oxides during a calendar year shall report to their permitting authority information and data concerning these emissions. This information and data shall be in the form prescribed by the Technical Secretary, and shall be submitted before March 31 of the year following the calendar year for which the information and data is reported. The first report shall be for the 1993 calendar year, and shall be submitted before March 31, 1994. Each report shall be signed by an official of the company, certifying that the information and data contained in the report is accurate to the best knowledge of the individual certifying the report.
