Designated Representative

  • Each source must have a Designated Representative (DR)

  • This individual is responsible for all submissions under CAIR/CAMR/Acid Rain

    • monitoring plans & emissions reports

    • permit applications

    • allowance transfers

    • compliance

Certificate of Representation

  • Identifies one DR [and alternate] for each source for all trading programs: Acid Rain/CAIR/CAMR*

    • Identifies all units at the source; and for each unit:

      • Indicates each program to which the unit is subject

      • Identifies the owners and operators

    • Requires certification statement that DR [and alternate] are responsible for all submissions under each program

      *Currently, Cert of Rep form and on-line alternative include only Acid Rain and CAIR; CAMR will be included later this Spring

Cert of Rep, cont.

  • Acid Rain DRs must submit new Cert of Rep in order to certify their representation for CAIR/CAMR

  • CAMR sources in States without trading still need DR for emissions data submission

  • No specific deadline for submittal; DR must be established in order to make other submittals (such as permit application or monitoring plan)

CAMD Business System

  • CAMD Business System offers alternative to paper form for Cert of Rep

    • Saves on work of filling out multiple forms

    • Allows the designation of “Agents” to perform on-line functions

    • All allowance account management can be done here


Allowance Management System

  • Maintains information on:

    • accounts and their representatives

    • the issuance of all allowances

    • the holdings of allowances in accounts
