Registration in General

(1) Any air contaminant source not subject to Air Contaminant Discharge Permits, OAR 340 division 216, or Oregon Title V Operating Permits, OAR 340 division 218, must register with DEQ upon request pursuant to 340-210-0110 through 340-210-0120.

(2) The owner or operator of an air contaminant source listed in subsection (2)(a) of this rule that is certified through a Department approved environmental certification program and subject to an Area Source NESHAP may register the source with DEQ pursuant to OAR 340-210-0110 through 340-210-0120 in lieu of obtaining a permit according to OAR 340-216-0020, unless DEQ determines that the source has not complied with the requirements of the environmental certification program.

(a) The following air contaminant sources may be registered under this section:

(A) Motor vehicle surface coating operations.

(B) Dry cleaners using perchloroethylene.

(b) Approved environmental certification program. To be approved, the environmental certification program must, at a minimum, require certified air contaminant sources to comply with all applicable state and federal rules and regulations and require additional measures to increase environmental protection.

(c) Fees. In order to obtain and maintain registration, owners and operators of air contaminant sources registered pursuant to this section must pay the following annual fees by March 1 of each year:

(A) Motor vehicle surface coating operations — $288.00.

(B) Dry cleaners using perchloroethylene — $216.00.

(C) Late fees.

(i) 8–30 days late: 5% of annual fee.

(ii) 31–60 days late: 10% of annual fee.

(iii) 61 or more days late: 20% of annual fee.

(d) Recordkeeping. In order to maintain registration, owners and operators of air contaminant sources registered pursuant to this section must maintain records required by the approved environmental performance program under subsection (2)(b) of this rule. The records must be kept on site and in a form suitable and readily available for expeditious inspection and review.

(3) The owner or operator of an air contaminant source that is subject to a federal NSPS or NESHAP in 40 CFR Part 60 or 40 CFR Part 63 and that is not located at a source that is required to obtain a permit under OAR chapter 340, division 216 (Air Contaminant Discharge Permits) or OAR chapter 340, division 218 (Oregon Title V Operating Permits), must register and maintain registration with DEQ pursuant to 340-210-0110 through 340-210-0120 if requested in writing by DEQ (or by EPA at DEQ’s request).

The order prohibiting construction or modification will be forwarded to the owner or operator by certified mail.

(5) Hearing. A person against whom an order prohibiting construction or modification is directed may demand a hearing within 20 days from the date of mailing the order. The demand must be in writing, state the grounds for hearing, and be mailed to the Director of the Department. The hearing will be conducted pursuant to the applicable provisions in division 11 of this chapter.

(c) For sources currently operating under an ACDP, Type 1 and 2 changes may be operated without further approval unless the ACDP specifically prohibits the operation.

(d) For sources currently operating under an Oregon Title V Operating Permit, Type 1 and 2 changes may only be operated in accordance with OAR 340-218-0190(2).

(3) Type 3 and 4 changes:

(a) For new sources, Type 3 or 4 changes require a standard ACDP before operation of the changes.

(b) For sources currently operating under an ACDP, approval to operate Type 3 or 4 changes will require a new or modified standard ACDP. All ACDP terms and conditions remain in effect until the ACDP is modified.

(c) For sources currently operating under an Oregon Title V Operating Permit, approval to operate Type 3 or 4 changes must be in accordance with OAR 340-218-0190(2).
