I am required to conduct a performance test. I would like to request a different test method than the one required by the rule that I am subject to. How can I do this?

If the test is required to demonstrate compliance with a federal rule, then a written request for an alternative test method should be sent to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 7, and the request will be forwarded to EPA Headquarters. The EPA will respond in writing, approving or denying the request for an alternative test method. If the test is required to demonstrate compliance with a state only rule, then a written request should be sent to KDHE. KDHE will respond in writing. The addresses to send such requests are as follows:
Kansas Compliance Officer
Air Permitting and Compliance Branch
U.S. EPA, Region 7
11201 Renner Blvd
Lenexa, KS 66219

Air Compliance and Enforcement Section
KDHE Bureau of Air
1000 SW Jackson
Suite 310
Topeka, KS 66612
