In addition, whenever the owner or operator installs a monitoring system in order to meet the requirements of this chapter in a location where no such monitoring system was previously installed, initial certification according to 40 CFR 75.20 is required.

(b) Whenever the owner or operator makes a replacement, modification, or change in a certified monitoring system that may significantly affect the ability of the system to accurately measure or record NOx mass emissions or heat input rate or to meet the requirements of 40 CFR 75.21 or Appendix B to 40 CFR Part 75, the owner or operator shall recertify the monitoring system in accordance with 40 CFR 75.20(b) . Furthermore, whenever the owner or operator makes a replacement, modification, or change to the flue gas handling system or the unit's operation that may significantly change the stack flow or concentration profile, the owner or operator shall recertify the continuous emissions monitoring system in accordance with 40 CFR 75.20(b) . Examples of changes that require recertification include: replacement of the analyzer, complete replacement of an existing continuous emission monitoring system, or change in location or orientation of the sampling probe or site.

(c) Certification approval process for initial certifications and recertification.

Data measured and recorded by the provisionally certified monitoring system or component thereof, in accordance with the requirements of 40 CFR Part 75, shall be considered valid quality-assured data (retroactive to the date and time of provisional certification), provided that the director does not invalidate the provisional certification by issuing a notice of disapproval within one hundred twenty days of receipt of the complete certification application by the director.

(iv) The director shall issue a written notice of approval or disapproval of the certification application to the owner or operator within one hundred twenty days of receipt of the complete certification application under paragraph (B)(2)(c)(ii) of this rule. In the event the director does not issue such a notice within such one hundred twenty-day period, each monitoring system that meets the applicable performance requirements of 40 CFR Part 75 and is included in the certification application shall be deemed certified for use under the NOx budget trading program.

(a) If the certification application is complete and shows that each monitoring system meets the applicable performance requirements of 40 CFR Part 75, then the director shall issue a written notice of approval of the certification application within one hundred twenty days of receipt.

(b) A certification application shall be considered complete when all of the applicable information required to be submitted under paragraph (B)(2)(c)(ii) of this rule has been received by the director. If the certification application is not complete, then the director shall issue a written notice of incompleteness that sets a reasonable date by which the NOx authorized account representative shall submit the additional information required to complete the certification application. If the NOx authorized account representative does not comply with the notice of incompleteness by the specified date, then the director may issue a notice of disapproval under paragraph (B)(2)(c)(iv)(c) of this rule. The one hundred twenty-day review period shall not begin prior to receipt of a complete certification application.

(c) If the certification application shows that any monitoring system or component thereof does not meet the performance requirements of this chapter, or if the certification application is incomplete and the requirement for disapproval under paragraph (B)(2)(c)(iv)(b) of this rule has been met, then the director shall issue a written notice of disapproval of the certification application. Upon issuance of such notice of disapproval, the provisional certification is invalidated by the director and the data measured and recorded by each uncertified monitoring system or component thereof shall not be considered valid quality-assured data beginning with the date and hour of provisional certification [as defined under 40 CFR 75.20(a)(3) ]. The owner or operator shall follow the procedures for loss of certification in paragraph (B)(2)(c)(v) of this rule for each monitoring system or component thereof which is disapproved for initial certification.

(2) Whenever both an audit of a monitoring system and a review of the initial certification or recertification application reveal that any system or component should not have been certified or recertified because it did not meet a particular performance specification or other requirement under paragraph (B) of this rule or the applicable provisions of 40 CFR Part 75, both at the time of the initial certification or recertification application submission and at the time of the audit, the director shall issue a notice of disapproval of the certification status of such system or component. For the purposes of this paragraph, an audit shall be either a field audit or an audit of any information submitted to the director or the administrator. By issuing the notice of disapproval, the director revokes prospectively the certification status of the system or component. The data measured and recorded by the system or component shall not be considered valid quality-assured data from the date of issuance of the notification of the revoked certification status until the date and time that the owner or operator completes subsequently approved initial certification or recertification tests for the system or component.
