Form OP-UA32
Copper and Zinc Smelting/Brass and Bronze Production Attributes
General:
This form is used to provide a description and data pertaining to all copper and zinc smelting production units; and brass
and bronze production units and processes 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 copper and
zinc smelting production unit; and brass and bronze production unit and process, 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:

Subpart M: Standards of Performance for Secondary Brass and Bronze Production Plants
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 (EPA) Administrator before the federal operating
permit application is submitted.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) requires that a Core Data Form be submitted on all incoming
registrations unless all of the following are met: the Regulated Entity and Customer Reference Numbers have been issued
by the TCEQ and no core data information has changed. The Central Registry, a common record area of the TCEQ,

maintains information about TCEQ customers and regulated activities, such as company names, addresses, and telephone
numbers. This information is commonly referred to as “core data.” The Central Registry provides the regulated
community with a central access point within the agency to check core data and make changes when necessary. When
core data about a facility is moved to the Central Registry, two new identification numbers are assigned: the Customer
Reference (CN) number and the Regulated Entity (RN) number. The Core Data Form is required if facility records are not
yet part of the Central Registry or if core data for a facility has changed. If this is the initial registration, permit, or license
for a facility site, then the Core Data Form must be completed and submitted with application or registration forms. If
amending, modifying, or otherwise updating an existing record for a facility site, the Core Data Form is not required,
unless any core data information has changed. To review additional information regarding the Central Registry, go to the
TCEQ Web site at www.tceq.texas.gov/permitting/central_registry.
