UPDATE: AEP Issues June 18, 2021 Memo
On June 18, 2021, AEP released a memorandum which states that previous authorizations to deviate from the 1998 CEMS Code apply specifically to the 1998 Code. Affected sources should work with their approval coordinator to have any such deviation(s) authorized prior to January 1, 2022. The installation requirements specified in the 2021 CEM Code apply to new installations, “therefore existing authorizations to deviate which are based on physical installation requirements (i.e., sampling location) may remain.”
Here is a link to the Memorandum: https://www.alberta.ca/assets/documents/aep-memo-revised-cems-code.pdf
As we initially reported back in October 2020, the Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) published a second draft of the 1998 Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEMS) Code and hosted a webinar to provide information concerning the proposed revisions to the CEMS Code on October 13, 2020. A brochure summarizing the significant revisions to the CEMS code is available here. The revised Alberta CEMS code was finalized on April 7, 2021 and will take effect for the majority of the revisions on January 1, 2022.
UPDATE: On July 21, 2021, at 1 pm ET, VIM hosted the 2021 Alberta CEMS Code – What You Need to Know webinar. The webinar covered the significant changes in the 2021 Alberta CEMS code, how they may impact your current compliance plan.
