Miscellaneous and Generic Unit Attributes
General
:
This form is used to provide a description and data pertaining to miscellaneous units with potentially applicable
requirements associated with a particular account number and application, but are not addressed by any other OP-UA
series form Miscellaneous units include, but are not limited to, emission units, processes, emission points, or facilities.
For example, units that may be documented using this form include combustion units which may be subject to
Title 30 Texas Administrative Code Chapter 117 (30 TAC Chapter 117), but are not addressed by any other OP-UA series
form.
This form is also used to provide a generic description and data pertaining to units, processes, emission points, or facilities
with potentially applicable requirements, but with a Requirement Reference Table (RRT) not developed. The Texas
Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has elected not to develop an RRT for specific potentially applicable
requirements due to the amount of resources associated with the development and the limited number of sites in the state
subject to the requirement. Standards and associated monitoring, recordkeeping, reporting, and testing requirements for
the units, processes, emission points, or facilities will be codified by the applicant and the review engineer using the
generic attributes described on this form.
This form may also be used when a combination of the two previously described situations are presented. General
operating permit (GOP) applicants, however, will only use this form to provide information for units, processes, emission
points, or facilities that are not addressed by other OP-UA series forms.
The TCEQ primary account number (XX-XXXX-X) and the application area name from Form OP-1 (Site Information
Summary) must appear in the header of each page for purpose of identification for the initial submittal. The date of the
initial form submittal must also be included and should be consistent throughout the application (MM/DD/YYYY). Leave
the permit number blank for the initial form submittal. If this form is included as part of the permit revision process,
enter the permit number assigned by the TCEQ, the area name (from Form OP-1), the date of the revision submittal, and
the account number.
Unit attribute questions that do not require a response from all applicants are preceded by qualification criteria in the
instructions. If the unit does not meet the qualification criteria, a response to the question is not required. Anytime a
response is not required based on the qualification criteria, leave the space on the form blank.
Notwithstanding any qualification criteria in the form instructions or information provided in other TCEQ
guidance, the applicant may leave an attribute question blank (or indicate “N/A” for “Not Applicable”) if the
attribute is not needed for the applicable requirement determinations of a regulation for a unit.
In some situations, the applicant has the option of selecting alternate requirements, limitations, and/or practices for a unit.
Note that these alternate requirements, limitations, and/or practices must have the required approval from the TCEQ
Executive Director and/or the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator before the federal operating
permit application is submitted.
Specific:
Unit ID No.: Enter the identification number (ID No.) for any miscellaneous units with potentially applicable
requirements (maximum 10 characters), but not addressed by any other OP-UA series form and/or an RRT have not been
developed. The identification number should also be listed on Form OP-SUM (Individual Unit Summary).
