  1. CAIR/CAMR:Designated Representative and Establishing Allowance Accounts EPA Region 4 Workshop Atlanta March 15, 2007 Mary Shellabarger

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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)

  5. 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 • https://camd.epa.gov/cbs/
