EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AJ86 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: Performance Specifications for Continuous Parameter Monitoring Systems 
Abstract: Compliance with many air rules is determined through use of process parameter values, instead of direct measurements of the pollutants of concern. No uniform set of requirements that inform users of parameter monitoring devices of the suitability of the devices for specific tasks or the ability of the devices to provide valid data to determine compliance exist. This rule would establish minimum acceptable requirements, both for initial installation and ongoing operation, for five common classes of parameter monitoring devices–-temperature, pressure, flow rate (liquid, gas, and mass), pH, and conductivity. In addition, this rule would revise portions of other rules to ensure a consistent approach for parameter monitoring. Finally, unrelated to parameter monitoring, the rule would clarify ongoing quality assurance requirements for direct measurement devices that detect multiple pollutants. The rule was proposed on October 9, 2008, and it can be found beginning on page 59,956 of Volume 73 of the Federal Register. Several commenters questioned the costs associated with the proposed rule and at least one commenter asked for a performance-based rule. The Agency is considering the comments received on the proposed rule and currently intends to issue a supplemental proposal to solicit additional public input.
