For the application of the second paragraph of section 19, the operator must, at the same frequency, perform source emissions testing and analyze the volatile organic compounds emitted into the atmosphere, calculate the percentage of reduction, and for that purpose, measure each of the parameters established in that section.
In addition, the operator must carry out a first calculation of the emission rate or, where applicable, take the first sample and carry out the first analysis within 1 year as of 30 June 2014 in the case of an existing operation or, in the case of a new operation, within 1 year as of the date on which the operation commences.
