Stationary Source Audit Sample Program
Audit Sample Availability

 

NOTICE: It has come to our attention that one of the two providers of audit samples has ceased manufacturing samples for the stationary source audit program.  The general provisions to 40 CFR Parts 60 and 63 (see §60.8(g)(1) and §63.7(c)(2)(iii)(A)) require that the owner or operator obtain audit samples if the audit samples are  “commercially available” and have defined “commercially available” as two or more independent accredited audit sample providers (AASP) to have blind audit samples available for purchase. Since there are no longer two providers, the requirement to obtain these audit samples is no longer in effect until such time as another independent AASP has audit samples available for purchase.

When there are two or more AASP with audit samples available for purchase, we will update this webpage with the name or names of the providers and audit sample(s) available for purchase. At that time, this information must be listed on the EPA's Air Emissions Measurement Center website (link) for 60 days before audits are required again

The following Accredited Audit Sample Provider has audit samples available for purchase:

1) Environmental Resource Associates, Inc.
16341 Table Mountain Parkway
Golden, CO 80403
800-372-0122
