Test date may be rescheduled if notice is provided either ≥ 7 business days (for full recertifications) or ≥ 2 business days (for partial recertifications) before the earlier of the original or new date.
CAMD, EPA Region or State may waive notification requirement or may reinstate it if previously waived.
Notification not required for Appendix D fuel flowmeter accuracy testing.
Recertification test results (hard copy and electronic).
Changes to the monitoring plan, if any (hard copy and electronic).
An electronic "QA Certification Event Data " record is required.
Hardcopy test results to EPA Region, State.
Electronic test results and changes to the electronic monitoring plan to CAMD using the ECMPS Client Tool.
Hardcopy monitoring plan changes (if any) to EPA Region, State.
|≤ 45 days after completion of recertification testing.||
For Subpart E alternative monitoring systems, submit hardcopy test results to CAMD.
For other recertifications, submit hardcopy test results to CAMD only upon request.
EPA Region or State may waive hardcopy test submittal requirement or may reinstate it if previously waived.

*** Recertification is required when a replacement or change to a monitoring system may significantly affect the accuracy of the system. Recertification is also required if a change in unit operation or a change to the flue gas handling system may significantly affect the flow or concentration profile. Examples of changes that require recertification include analyzer replacement, change in probe location, and complete system replacement. Also, any change that requires non-routine RATA testing, or fuel flowmeter accuracy testing, or Appendix E re-testing is considered to be a recertification event, with one exception: changing the polynomial coefficients or K-factor(s) of a flow monitor or moisture monitor requires RATA testing but is not considered a recertification event [see §§ 75.20 (b) and 75.20 (g)(6)].« Return to Emissions Monitoring Part 75
