Loading/Unloading Operations Attributes
General:
This form is used to provide a description and data pertaining to all loading or unloading operations with potentially
applicable requirements associated with a particular regulated entity (RN) 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 loading or unloading operation, 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:

OP-UA4 Instructions
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 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 RN and customer reference (CN) numbers have been issued by the
TCEQ and no core data information has changed The Central Registry, a common record area of the TCEQ which
maintains information about TCEQ customers and regulated activities, such as company names, addresses, and telephone
numbers. This information is commonly referred 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 CN number and the
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 website at
www.tceq.texas.gov/permitting/central_registry/guidance.html.
