Form OP-UA28 - Instructions
Polymer Manufacturing Attributes
General:
This form is used to provide a description and data pertaining to all polymer manufacturing facilities with
potentially applicable requirements associated with a particular regulated entity number and application. Each
table number, along with the possibility of a corresponding letter (i.e., Table 1a, Table 1b), corresponds to a
certain state or federal rule. If the rule on the table is not potentially applicable to a polymer manufacturing
facility, then it should be left blank and need not be submitted with the application. If the codes entered by the
applicant show negative applicability to the rule or sections of the rule represented on the table, then the
applicant need not complete the remainder of the table(s) that corresponds to the rule. Further instruction as
to which questions should be answered and which questions should not be answered are located in the
“Specific” section of the instruction text. The following is included in this form:
Table 1a - 1f:
Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations Part 60, Subpart DDD: Standards of
Performance for Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Emissions from the
Polymer Manufacturing Industry
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Regulated Entity Number (RNXXXXXXXXX) and
the application area name from Form OP-1 (Site Information Summary) must appear in the header of each
page for the 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 regulated entity 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
Administrator before the federal operating permit application is submitted.
The TCEQ requires that a Core Data Form be submitted on all incoming registrations unless a Regulated Entity
and Customer Reference Number has been issued by the TCEQ and no core data information has changed. If a
Regulated Entity or Customer Reference Number has been issued, then the number must be noted on the
request or applicable form. For more information regarding the Core Data Form, call (512) 239 5175 or go to
