The Air Permitting Program is revising Technical Manual (TM) 1004, "Guidelines for Compliance Stack Emission Test Programs." The existing version of TM 1004 was issued in July, 2000. The revisions are necessary based on modifications to test methods, additional protocol templates, changes to the Department's structure, and updates to reference materials.
TM 1004 is intended for source operations required to perform compliance stack emission tests as a condition of a Preconstruction Permit or Operating Permit, Permit renewal, or a Federal or State regulation. Regulations which could require that a compliance stack test be conducted include, but are not limited to, the following: N.J.A.C. 7:27, N.J.A.C. 7:26, Title 40, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Parts 60, 61, 63, 264, and 266.
A notice of the revision was published in the New Jersey Register on June 1, 2009. The public comment period will close on August 3, 2009. A revised manual and fact sheet are available at the Department's web site: http://www.state.nj.us/dep/aqpp/publicnotices.htm
