ACTION: Notice of the designation of a new equivalent method for monitoring ambient air quality. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has designated, in accordance with 40 CFR part 53, a new equivalent method for measuring concentrations of particulate matter as PM10 in the ambient air. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elizabeth Hunike, Human Exposure and Atmospheric Sciences Division (MD– D205–03), National Exposure Research Laboratory, U.S. EPA, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina 27711. Phone: (919) 541–3737, e-mail: Hunike.Elizabeth@epa.gov. In accordance with regulations at 40 CFR part 53, the EPA evaluates various methods for monitoring the concentrations of those ambient air pollutants for which EPA has SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\28SEN1.SGM 28SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 187 / Wednesday, September 28, 2005 / Notices established National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQSs) as set forth in 40 CFR part 50. Monitoring methods that are determined to meet specific requirements for adequacy are designated by the EPA as either reference methods or equivalent methods (as applicable), thereby permitting their use under 40 CFR part 58 by States and other agencies for determining attainment of the NAAQSs. The EPA hereby announces the designation of a new equivalent method for measuring concentrations of particulate matter as PM10 in ambient air. This designation is made under the provisions of 40 CFR part 53, as amended on July 18, 1997 (62 FR 38764). The new equivalent method for PM10 is an automated method (analyzer) that utilizes a measurement principle based on sample collection by filtration and analysis by beta-ray attenuation. The newly designated equivalent method is identified as follows: EQPM–0905–0156, ‘‘DKK–TOA Models FPM–222, FPM–222C, FPM–223, FPM– 223C, DUB–222(S), and DUB–223(S) Particulate Monitor’’ for monitoring PM10 in Ambient Air (beta attenuation monitor), configured for PM10, with Firmware Version DUB4–658355, Corrected Slope Factor (FACT SLOPE) set to 1.232, Corrected Zero Value (FACT ZERO) set to 1.8, and with or without any of the following options: Auto Check and Serial Recorder. An application for an equivalent method determination for this method was received by the EPA on February 10, 2005. The method is available commercially from the applicant, DKK– TOA Corporation, 29–10, 1-Chome, Takadanobaba, Shinjuku-Ku, Tokyo 169–8648, Japan (http:// www.toadkk.co.jp/). Test analyzers representative of this method have been tested by the applicant in accordance with the applicable test procedures specified in 40 CFR part 53 (as amended on July 18, 1997). After reviewing the results of those tests and other information submitted by the applicant, EPA has determined, in accordance with part 53, that this method should be designated as an equivalent method. The information submitted by the applicant will be kept on file, either at EPA’s National Exposure Research Laboratory, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina 27711 or in an approved archive storage facility, and will be available for inspection (with advance notice) to the extent consistent with 40 CFR part 2 (EPA’s regulations implementing the Freedom of Information Act). VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:02 Sep 27, 2005 Jkt 205001 As a designated reference or equivalent method, this method is acceptable for use by states and other air monitoring agencies under the requirements of 40 CFR part 58, Ambient Air Quality Surveillance. For such purposes, the method must be used in strict accordance with the operation or instruction manual associated with the method and subject to any specifications and limitations (e.g., configuration or operational settings) specified in the applicable designation method description (see the identification of the method above). Users of the method should also note that its equivalent method designation applies only to 24-hour average PM10 concentration measurements. The DKK– TOA Model FPM–222 and associated model monitors can also provide average PM10 concentration measurements over other, shorter averaging periods. However, such shorter average concentration measurements may be less precise than the 24-hour measurements and are not required for use in determining attainment under the air quality surveillance requirements of part 58 (although they may be useful for other purposes). Use of the method should also be in general accordance with the guidance and recommendations of applicable sections of the ‘‘Quality Assurance Handbook for Air Pollution Measurement Systems, Volume I,’’ EPA/ 600/R–94/038a and ‘‘Quality Assurance Handbook for Air Pollution Measurement Systems, Volume II, Part 1,’’ EPA–454/R–98–004. Vendor modifications of a designated reference or equivalent method used for purposes of part 58 are permitted only with prior approval of the EPA, as provided in part 53. Provisions concerning modification of such methods by users are specified under Section 2.8 (Modifications of Methods by Users) of Appendix C to 40 CFR part 58. In general, a method designation applies to any sampler or analyzer which is identical to the sampler or analyzer described in the application for designation. In some cases, similar samplers or analyzers manufactured prior to the designation may be upgraded or converted (e.g., by minor modification or by substitution of the approved operation or instruction manual) so as to be identical to the designated method and thus achieve designated status. The manufacturer should be consulted to determine the feasibility of such upgrading or conversion. Part 53 requires that sellers of designated reference or equivalent method analyzers or samplers comply PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 56685 with certain conditions. These conditions are specified in 40 CFR 53.9 and are summarized below: (a) A copy of the approved operation or instruction manual must accompany the sampler or analyzer when it is delivered to the ultimate purchaser. (b) The sampler or analyzer must not generate any unreasonable hazard to operators or to the environment. (c) The sampler or analyzer must function within the limits of the applicable performance specifications given in 40 CFR parts 50 and 53 for at least one year after delivery when maintained and operated in accordance with the operation or instruction manual. (d) Any sampler or analyzer offered for sale as part of a reference or equivalent method must bear a label or sticker indicating that it has been designated as part of a reference or equivalent method in accordance with part 53 and showing its designated method identification number. (e) If such an analyzer has two or more selectable ranges, the label or sticker must be placed in close proximity to the range selector and indicate which range or ranges have been included in the reference or equivalent method designation. (f) An applicant who offers samplers or analyzers for sale as part of a reference or equivalent method is required to maintain a list of ultimate purchasers of such samplers or analyzers and to notify them within 30 days if a reference or equivalent method designation applicable to the method has been canceled or if adjustment of the sampler or analyzer is necessary under 40 CFR 53.11(b) to avoid a cancellation. (g) An applicant who modifies a sampler or analyzer previously designated as part of a reference or equivalent method is not permitted to sell the sampler or analyzer (as modified) as part of a reference or equivalent method (although it may be sold without such representation), nor to attach a designation label or sticker to the sampler or analyzer (as modified) under the provisions described above, until the applicant has received notice under 40 CFR 53.14(c) that the original designation or a new designation applies to the method as modified, or until the applicant has applied for and received notice under 40 CFR 53.8(b) of a new reference or equivalent method determination for the sampler or analyzer as modified. Aside from occasional breakdowns or malfunctions, consistent or repeated noncompliance with any of these conditions should be reported to: E:\FR\FM\28SEN1.SGM 28SEN1 56686 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 187 / Wednesday, September 28, 2005 / Notices Director, Human Exposure and Atmospheric Sciences Division (MD– E205–01), National Exposure Research Laboratory, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina 27711.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. M. Ahmar Siddiqui, Document Control Officer, at (202) 566–1044, or via e-mail at siddiqui.ahmar@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: EPA has transferred CBI to various contractors and subcontractors over the history of the effluent guidelines program. EPA determined that this transfer was necessary to enable the contractors and subcontractors to perform their work in supporting EPA in planning, developing, and reviewing effluent guidelines and standards for certain industries. Today, EPA is giving notice that it has entered into a contract with Battelle, number EP–C–05–030, located in Columbus, Ohio. The reason for this contract is to secure additional statistical analysis support for EPA in its development, review, implementation, and defense of water-related initiatives. To obtain assistance in responding to this contract, Battelle has entered into contracts with the following subcontractors: Waterstone Environmental Hydrology and Engineering, Inc. (located in Boulder, Colorado) and Jorge Scientific Corporation (Arlington, Virginia). All EPA contractor, subcontractor, and consultant personnel are bound by the requirements and sanctions contained in their contracts with EPA and in EPA’s confidentiality regulations found at 40 CFR Part 2, Subpart B. Battelle and its subcontractors adhere to EPA-approved security plans which describe procedures to protect CBI. The procedures in these plans are applied to CBI previously gathered by EPA for the industries identified below and to CBI that may be gathered in the future for these industries. The security plans specify that contractor and subcontractor personnel are required to sign non-disclosure agreements and are briefed on appropriate security procedures before they are permitted access to CBI. No person is automatically granted access to CBI: a need to know must exist. The information that will be transferred to Battelle and its subcontractors consists primarily of information previously collected by EPA to support the development and review of effluent limitations guidelines and standards under the CWA and the development of discharge standards for certain Alaskan cruise ship operations. In particular, information, including CBI, collected for the planning, development, and review of effluent limitations guidelines and standards for PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the following industries may be transferred: Airport deicing; aquaculture; concentrated animal feeding operations; centralized waste treatment; coal mining; drinking water treatment; industrial container and drum cleaning; industrial laundries; industrial waste combustors; iron and steel manufacturing; landfills; meat and poultry products; metal finishing; metal products and machinery; nonferrous metals manufacturing; oil and gas extraction (including coalbed methane); ore mining and dressing; organic chemicals, plastics, and synthetic fibers; pesticide chemicals; pharmaceutical manufacturing; petroleum refining; pulp, paper, and paperboard manufacturing; steam electric power generation; textile mills; timber products processing; tobacco; and transportation equipment cleaning.

Method for PM10

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency.

ACTION: Notice of the designation of a new equivalent method for 
monitoring ambient air quality.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the Environmental Protection 
Agency (EPA) has designated, in accordance with 40 CFR part 53, a new 
equivalent method for measuring concentrations of particulate matter as 
PM10 in the ambient air.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elizabeth Hunike, Human Exposure and 
Atmospheric Sciences Division (MD-D205-03), National Exposure Research 
Laboratory, U.S. EPA, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina 27711. 
Phone: (919) 541-3737, e-mail: Hunike.Elizabeth@epa.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with regulations at 40 CFR 
part 53, the EPA evaluates various methods for monitoring the 
concentrations of those ambient air pollutants for which EPA has

[[Page 56685]]

established National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQSs) as set 
forth in 40 CFR part 50. Monitoring methods that are determined to meet 
specific requirements for adequacy are designated by the EPA as either 
reference methods or equivalent methods (as applicable), thereby 
permitting their use under 40 CFR part 58 by States and other agencies 
for determining attainment of the NAAQSs.
    The EPA hereby announces the designation of a new equivalent method 
for measuring concentrations of particulate matter as PM10 
in ambient air. This designation is made under the provisions of 40 CFR 
part 53, as amended on July 18, 1997 (62 FR 38764).
    The new equivalent method for PM10 is an automated 
method (analyzer) that utilizes a measurement principle based on sample 
collection by filtration and analysis by beta-ray attenuation. The 
newly designated equivalent method is identified as follows:

EQPM-0905-0156, ``DKK-TOA Models FPM-222, FPM-222C, FPM-223, FPM-223C, 
DUB-222(S), and DUB-223(S) Particulate Monitor'' for monitoring 
PM10 in Ambient Air (beta attenuation monitor), configured 
for PM10, with Firmware Version DUB4-658355, Corrected Slope 
Factor (FACT SLOPE) set to 1.232, Corrected Zero Value (FACT ZERO) set 
to 1.8, and with or without any of the following options: Auto Check 
and Serial Recorder.

    An application for an equivalent method determination for this 
method was received by the EPA on February 10, 2005. The method is 
available commercially from the applicant, DKK-TOA Corporation, 29-10, 
1-Chome, Takadanobaba, Shinjuku-Ku, Tokyo 169-8648, Japan (http://
www.toadkk.co.jp/).
    Test analyzers representative of this method have been tested by 
the applicant in accordance with the applicable test procedures 
specified in 40 CFR part 53 (as amended on July 18, 1997). After 
reviewing the results of those tests and other information submitted by 
the applicant, EPA has determined, in accordance with part 53, that 
this method should be designated as an equivalent method. The 
information submitted by the applicant will be kept on file, either at 
EPA's National Exposure Research Laboratory, Research Triangle Park, 
North Carolina 27711 or in an approved archive storage facility, and 
will be available for inspection (with advance notice) to the extent 
consistent with 40 CFR part 2 (EPA's regulations implementing the 
Freedom of Information Act).
    As a designated reference or equivalent method, this method is 
acceptable for use by states and other air monitoring agencies under 
the requirements of 40 CFR part 58, Ambient Air Quality Surveillance. 
For such purposes, the method must be used in strict accordance with 
the operation or instruction manual associated with the method and 
subject to any specifications and limitations (e.g., configuration or 
operational settings) specified in the applicable designation method 
description (see the identification of the method above).
    Users of the method should also note that its equivalent method 
designation applies only to 24-hour average PM10 
concentration measurements. The DKK-TOA Model FPM-222 and associated 
model monitors can also provide average PM10 concentration 
measurements over other, shorter averaging periods. However, such 
shorter average concentration measurements may be less precise than the 
24-hour measurements and are not required for use in determining 
attainment under the air quality surveillance requirements of part 58 
(although they may be useful for other purposes). Use of the method 
should also be in general accordance with the guidance and 
recommendations of applicable sections of the ``Quality Assurance 
Handbook for Air Pollution Measurement Systems, Volume I,'' EPA/600/R-
94/038a and ``Quality Assurance Handbook for Air Pollution Measurement 
Systems, Volume II, Part 1,'' EPA-454/R-98-004. Vendor modifications of 
a designated reference or equivalent method used for purposes of part 
58 are permitted only with prior approval of the EPA, as provided in 
part 53. Provisions concerning modification of such methods by users 
are specified under Section 2.8 (Modifications of Methods by Users) of 
Appendix C to 40 CFR part 58.
    In general, a method designation applies to any sampler or analyzer 
which is identical to the sampler or analyzer described in the 
application for designation. In some cases, similar samplers or 
analyzers manufactured prior to the designation may be upgraded or 
converted (e.g., by minor modification or by substitution of the 
approved operation or instruction manual) so as to be identical to the 
designated method and thus achieve designated status. The manufacturer 
should be consulted to determine the feasibility of such upgrading or 
conversion.
    Part 53 requires that sellers of designated reference or equivalent 
method analyzers or samplers comply with certain conditions. These 
conditions are specified in 40 CFR 53.9 and are summarized below:
    (a) A copy of the approved operation or instruction manual must 
accompany the sampler or analyzer when it is delivered to the ultimate 
purchaser.
    (b) The sampler or analyzer must not generate any unreasonable 
hazard to operators or to the environment.
    (c) The sampler or analyzer must function within the limits of the 
applicable performance specifications given in 40 CFR parts 50 and 53 
for at least one year after delivery when maintained and operated in 
accordance with the operation or instruction manual.
    (d) Any sampler or analyzer offered for sale as part of a reference 
or equivalent method must bear a label or sticker indicating that it 
has been designated as part of a reference or equivalent method in 
accordance with part 53 and showing its designated method 
identification number.
    (e) If such an analyzer has two or more selectable ranges, the 
label or sticker must be placed in close proximity to the range 
selector and indicate which range or ranges have been included in the 
reference or equivalent method designation.
    (f) An applicant who offers samplers or analyzers for sale as part 
of a reference or equivalent method is required to maintain a list of 
ultimate purchasers of such samplers or analyzers and to notify them 
within 30 days if a reference or equivalent method designation 
applicable to the method has been canceled or if adjustment of the 
sampler or analyzer is necessary under 40 CFR 53.11(b) to avoid a 
cancellation.
    (g) An applicant who modifies a sampler or analyzer previously 
designated as part of a reference or equivalent method is not permitted 
to sell the sampler or analyzer (as modified) as part of a reference or 
equivalent method (although it may be sold without such 
representation), nor to attach a designation label or sticker to the 
sampler or analyzer (as modified) under the provisions described above, 
until the applicant has received notice under 40 CFR 53.14(c) that the 
original designation or a new designation applies to the method as 
modified, or until the applicant has applied for and received notice 
under 40 CFR 53.8(b) of a new reference or equivalent method 
determination for the sampler or analyzer as modified.
    Aside from occasional breakdowns or malfunctions, consistent or 
repeated noncompliance with any of these conditions should be reported 
to:
