Registration issuance.

(1) General. Any person operating or responsible for the operation of an air contaminant source for which registration and reporting are required must register the source emission unit with the permitting authority. The owner or operator must make reports containing information required by the permitting authority concerning location, size and height of contaminant outlets, processes employed, nature and quantity of the air contaminant emission and such other information as is relevant to air pollution and available or reasonably capable of being assembled.
(2) Registration. Sources must provide registration information in a manner and time prescribed by the permitting authority and must provide the required information within the time specified by the permitting authority. Sources must list each emission unit within the facility separately unless the permitting authority determines that the facility may combine certain emission units into process streams for purposes of registration and reporting.
(3) Signatory responsibility. The owner, operator, or their designated management representative must sign the registration form for each source. The owner or operator of the source is responsible for notifying the permitting authority of the existence of the source, and for the accuracy, completeness, and timely submittal of registration reporting information and any accompanying fee.
(4) Operational and maintenance plan. Owners or operators of registered sources within ecology's jurisdiction must maintain an operation and maintenance plan for process and control equipment. The plan must reflect good industrial practice and must include a record of performance and periodic inspections of process and control equipment. In most instances, a manufacturer's operations manual or an equipment operation schedule may be considered a sufficient operation and maintenance plan. The source owner or operator must review and update the plan at least annually. The source owner or operator must make a copy of the plan available to ecology upon request.
(5) Report of closure. The owner or operator must file a report of closure with the permitting authority within ninety days after operations producing emissions permanently cease at any applicable source under this section.
(6) Report of change of ownership. A new owner or operator must report to the permitting authority within ninety days of any change of ownership or change in operator.
(7) Operating permit program source exemption. Permit program sources, as defined in RCW 70.94.030(18), are not required to comply with the registration requirements of WAC 173-400-100 through 173-400-104.
