I have applied for and received a permit for some new equipment. What are some common compliance problems that occur with new permit holders?

We encourage you to read the construction permit or approval carefully, since these documents obligate each facility to certain requirements. The following is a list of requirements that are sometimes overlooked:

  • Permits and approvals for equipment subject to 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 60 New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) or Part 63 Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) may contain performance testing requirements within 180 days after startup or rule applicability. Refer to the permit or approval for details.
  • Permits and approvals for equipment subject to 40 CFR Part 60 NSPS contain requirements for notifications.
  • Permits and approvals may also require notifications for Part 63 MACT.
  • Most permits and approvals contain a requirement to notify the local inspector when installation of the new equipment is complete, so that an evaluation may be conducted.
  • Permits and approvals for portable equipment usually require a notification when equipment is moved, as required by Kansas Administrative Regulation (K.A.R.) 28-19-9(c).
