At least 60 days prior to the date a proposed modification commences operation, the permittee must submit an application to the department if there are any proposed changes to the approved list of internal offset or emission offset sources included in the permit for that facility. For each such change, the applicant must submit another use of emission reduction credits form signed by the applicant and an authorized representative of the new offset source.
