[Comment: For dates of non-regulatory government publications, publications of recognized organizations and associations, federal rules, and federal statutory provisions referenced in this rule, see the last paragraph of rule 3745-105-01 of the Administrative Code titled"Reference to materials."]

(A) Within thirty days after the installation of the continuous monitoring and recording equipment, the owner or operator of a pathological waste incinerator shall conduct a performance specification test of such equipment pursuant to division (i) (I) of section 3704.03 of the Revised Code and 40 CFR Part 60, appendix B, performance specification test one. Personnel from the appropriate Ohio EPA district office or local air agency shall be permitted to witness the performance specification test, and two copies of the test results shall be submitted to the Ohio EPA field office within forty-five days after the test is completed.

(B) All owners or operators of pathological waste incinerators with a capacity greater than four hundred pounds per hour shall conduct annual performance tests to demonstrate compliance with the requirements in paragraphs (A) to (D) of rule 3745-105-02 of the Administrative Code.

(C) All owners or operators of pathological waste incinerators with a capacity less than or equal to four hundred pounds per hour shall conduct a stack test once every three years to demonstrate compliance with the requirements in paragraphs (A) to (D) of rule 3745-105-02 of the Administrative Code.

(D) The director may require more frequent tests if, in the director's judgment, there may be a violation of any applicable emission standards or there has been a change in the operation that may cause an increase in emissions due to a change in waste streams, pathological waste generators, or other operating conditions.

(E) The director or his/her representative shall be allowed to witness the tests, examine testing equipment, and require the acquisition or submission of data and information necessary to assure that the source operation and testing procedures provide a valid characterization of the emissions from the source and/or performance of the control equipment. The appropriate Ohio EPA district office or local air agency shall be notified at least thirty days in advance of any performance test by the owner or operator. The notice shall specify the date, time, place, source operating parameters, proposed test procedures, and persons conducting the test. Test results shall be submitted to the appropriate Ohio EPA district office or local air agency no later than thirty days after the completion of the test.

(F) Any owner or operator required to install and operate a radioactivity monitor and alarm due to the provisions of paragraph (C) of rule 3745-105-04 of the Administrative Code shall achieve compliance with paragraph (C) of rule 3745-105-04 of the Administrative Code as expeditiously as practicable, but not later than August 31, 2003.

[Note: an earlier compliance date for the radioactivity monitor and alarm may pertain under rule 3745-75-06 of the Administrative Code for pathological waste incinerators located offsite, or at facilities where radioactive materials are used or are licensed for use by the United States nuclear regulatory commission.]
