On December 27, 2013, the Commission notified all public and nonpublic utilities that they were not to file Q4 2013 EQRs until after the web-based approach was available.7 The Commission extended the deadline for public and non-public utilities to file Q4 2013 EQRs from January 31, 2014 to a date to be determined. The Commission stated that it would issue a notice that would notify all public and non-public utility EQR filers when the new webbased approach was available and provide the new deadline for filing Q3 and Q4 2013 EQRs. 5. The Commission hereby notifies all public and non-public utilities that they are to file Q3 2013 EQRs during the period April 1, 2014 to April 30, 2014. 6. The Commission further notifies all public and non-public utilities that they are to file Q4 2013 EQRs during the period May 1, 2014 to May 31, 2014. 7. The Commission further notifies all public and non-public utilities that they are not to file Q1 2014 EQRs during the period April 1, 2014 to April 30, 2014. The Commission hereby extends the deadline for public and non-public utilities to file Q1 2014 EQRs to the period June 1, 2014 to June 30, 2014. 8. EQRs for the second quarter (Q2) 2014 will be due during the normal filing period of July 1, 2014 to July 31, 2014 and all subsequent filings will be due during the normal filing period, unless otherwise directed by the Commission. 9. The Commission understands that it may take parties some time to become proficient with the new filing system. As a result, the Commission does not intend to penalize parties that are making best efforts for the Q3 2013 EQRs, the Q4 2013 EQRs, and the Q1 2014 EQRs. In that regard, the Commission strongly encourages parties to utilize the month of March 2014 to assure that they are well prepared for the first filing period under the new system. Parties should assure that they are properly eRegistered through the Commission’s Web site and that they have tested their filing processes through the Commission’s EQR Sandbox. Finally, the Commission strongly encourages parties to file early in the filing period and use the ‘‘TestOnly’’ functionality in the filing system so that any issues may be addressed well before the final filing deadline. Finally, the Commission reminds parties that staff is available to answer questions, as directed by Order No. 770.8 Questions may be submitted via email to: eqr@ferc.gov. The Commission orders: (A) The period for filing Q3 2013 EQRs will be April 1, 2014 to April 30, 2014. (B) The period for filing Q4 2013 EQRs will be May 1, 2014 to May 31, 2014. (C) The period for filing Q1 2014 EQRs is hereby extended, as discussed in the body of this order, to June 1, 2014 to June 30, 2014. (D) The period for filing Q2 2014 EQRs, as discussed in the body of this order, will remain July 1, 2014 to July 31, 2014. All other filing periods shall remain the same, unless otherwise directed by the Commission. 7 Filing Requirements for El.

ACTION: Notice of availability. AGENCY: This notice announces the broadly applicable alternative test method approval decisions the EPA has made under and in support of New Source Performance Standards (NSPS), the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP), and the Consolidated Federal Air Rule under the Clean Air Act (CAA) in 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: An electronic copy of each alternative test method approval document is available on the EPA’s Web site at www.epa.gov/ ttn/emc/approalt.html. For questions about this notice, contact Ms. Lula H. Melton, Air Quality Assessment Division, Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (E143–02), Environmental Protection Agency, Research Triangle Park, NC 27711; telephone number: 919–541–2910; fax number: 919–541–0516; email address: melton.lula@epa.gov. For technical questions about individual alternative tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:51 Mar 11, 2014 Jkt 232001 test method decisions, refer to the contact person identified in the individual approval documents. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. General Information A. Does this notice apply to me? This notice will be of interest to entities regulated under 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) parts 60, 61, 63, and 65, state, local, and tribal agencies, and the EPA Regional Offices responsible for implementation and enforcement of regulations under 40 CFR parts 60, 61, 63, and 65. B. How can I get copies of this information? You may access copies of the broadly applicable alternative test method approval documents from the EPA’s Web site at www.epa.gov/ttn/emc/ approalt.html. II. Background Broadly applicable alternative test method approval decisions made by the EPA in 2013 under the NSPS, 40 CFR part 60, the NESHAP, 40 CFR parts 61 and 63, and the Consolidated Federal Air Rule, 40 CFR part 65 are identified in this notice (see Table 1). Source owners and operators may voluntarily use these broadly applicable alternative test methods subject to their specific applicability. Use of these broadly applicable alternative test methods does not change the applicable emission standards. As explained in a previous Federal Register notice published at 72 FR 4257 (January 30, 2007) and found on the EPA’s Web site at www.epa.gov/ttn/ emc/approalt.html, the EPA Administrator has the authority to approve the use of alternative test methods to comply with requirements under 40 CFR parts 60, 61, and 63. This authority is found in sections 60.8(b)(3), 61.13(h)(1)(ii), and 63.7(e)(2)(ii). A similar authority is granted in 40 CFR part 65 under section 65.158(a)(2). In the past, we have performed thorough technical reviews of numerous requests for alternatives and modifications to test methods and procedures. Based on these reviews, we have often found that these changes or alternatives would be equally valid and appropriate to apply to other sources within a particular class, category, or subcategory. Consequently, we have concluded that, where a method modification or an alternative method is broadly applicable to a class, category, or subcategory of sources, it is both more equitable and efficient to approve its use for all appropriate sources and situations at the same time. PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14033 It is important to clarify that alternative methods are not mandatory but permissive. Sources are not required to employ such a method but may choose to do so in appropriate cases. Source owners or operators should review the specific broadly applicable alternative method approval decision on the EPA’s Web site at www.epa.gov/ttn/ emc/approalt.html before electing to employ it. As per 63.7(f)(5), by electing to use an alternative method for 40 CFR part 63 standards, the source owner or operator must continue to use the alternative method until approved otherwise. The criteria for approval and procedures for submission and review of broadly applicable alternative test methods are outlined at 72 FR 4257 (January 30, 2007). We will continue to announce approvals for broadly applicable alternative test methods at www.epa.gov/ttn/emc/approalt.html and annually publish a notice that summarizes approvals for broadly applicable alternative test methods. This notice comprises a summary of seven such approval documents added to our Technology Transfer Network from January 1, 2013, through December 31, 2013. The alternative method decision letter/memo number, the reference method affected, sources allowed to use this alternative, and the modification or alternative method allowed are summarized in Table 1 of this notice. Please refer to the complete copies of these approval documents available at www.epa.gov/ttn/emc/ approalt.html as Table 1 serves only as a brief summary of the broadly applicable alternative test methods. If you are aware of reasons why a particular alternative test method approval that we issued should not be broadly applicable, we request that you make us aware of the reasons in writing, and we will revisit the broad approval. Any objection to a broadly applicable alternative test method, as well as the resolution of that objection, will be announced at www.epa.gov/ttn/emc/ approalt.html and in the subsequent Federal Register notice. If we decide to retract a broadly applicable test method, we would continue to grant case-by-case approvals, as appropriate, and would (as states, local and tribal agencies and the EPA Regional Offices should) consider the need for an appropriate transition period for users either to request caseby-case approval or to transition to an approved method. Dated: March 5, 2014. Mary E. Henigin, Acting Director, Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards. E:\FR\FM\12MRN1.SGM 12MRN1
