Semi-Annual Monitoring Reports
Many of the Clean Air Act Permit Program (CAAPP) permits issued within the past several years have updated due dates for Semi-Annual Monitoring Reports (SAMR). The most common deadlines are now January 31st and July 31st, as opposed to the previous deadlines of March 1st and September 1st. Be sure to check the deadlines in your facility's CAAPP permit as soon as possible to avoid a late report. Also, many CAAPP permits provide additional clarity on what constitutes required monitoring to be included in the report, which may include monitoring, testing, recordkeeping and reporting requirements.
