92.508 Calculation and reporting of test results.§ 92.508 Calculation and reporting of test results.
(a) Manufacturers and remanufacturers shall calculate initial test results using the applicable test procedure specified in § 92.506(a). These results must also include the green engine factor, if applicable. The manufacturer or remanufacturer shall round these results, in accordance with ASTM E29-93a (incorporated by reference at § 92.5), to the number of decimal places contained in the applicable emission standard expressed to one additional significant figure.
(b) Final test results shall be calculated by summing the initial test results derived in paragraph (a) of this section for each test locomotive or locomotive engine, dividing by the number of tests conducted on the locomotive or locomotive engine, and rounding in accordance with ASTM E29-93a (incorporated by reference at § 92.5) to the same number of decimal places contained in the applicable standard expressed to one additional significant figure.
(c) Manufacturers and remanufacturers shall calculate the final test results for each test locomotive or locomotive engine by applying the appropriate deterioration factors, derived in the certification process for the engine family, to the final test results, and rounding in accordance with ASTM E 29-93a (incorporated by reference at § 92.5) to the same number of decimal places contained in the applicable standard expressed to one additional significant figure.
(d) If, subsequent to an initial failure of a production line test, the average of the test results for the failed locomotive or locomotive engine and the two additional locomotives or locomotive engines tested, is greater than any applicable emission standard or FEL, the engine family is deemed to be in non-compliance with applicable emission standards, and the manufacturer or remanufacturer must notify EPA within 2 working days of such noncompliance.
(e) Within 45 calendar days of the end of each quarter, each manufacturer or remanufacturer must submit to the Administrator a report which includes the following information:
(1) The location and description of the manufacturer's or remanufacturer's emission test facilities which were utilized to conduct testing reported pursuant to this section;
(2) Total production and sample size for each engine family;
(3) The applicable standards and/or FELs against which each engine family was tested;
(4) A description of the test locomotives or locomotive engines;
(5) For each test conducted:
(i) A description of the test locomotive or locomotive engine, including:
(A) Configuration and engine family identification;
(B) Year, make, and build date;
(C) Engine identification number;
(D) Number of megawatt-hours (or miles if applicable) of service accumulated on locomotive or locomotive engine prior to testing; and
(E) Description of green engine factor; how it is determined and how it is applied;
(ii) Location(s) where service accumulation was conducted and description of accumulation procedure and schedule, if applicable;
(iii) Test number, date, test procedure used, initial test results before and after rounding, and final test results for all production line emission tests conducted, whether valid or invalid, and the reason for invalidation of any test results, if applicable;
(iv) A complete description of any adjustment, modification, repair, preparation, maintenance, and testing which was performed on the test locomotive or locomotive engine, has not been reported pursuant to any other paragraph of this subpart, and will not be performed on other production locomotive or locomotive engines;
(v) Any other information the Administrator may request relevant to the determination whether the new locomotives or locomotive engines being manufactured or remanufactured by the manufacturer or remanufacturer do in fact conform with the regulations with respect to which the certificate of conformity was issued;
(6) For each failed locomotive or locomotive engine as defined in § 92.510(a), a description of the remedy and test results for all retests as required by § 92.512(g);
(7) The date of the end of the locomotive or locomotive engine manufacturer's model year production for each engine family tested; and
(8) The following signed statement and endorsement by an authorized representative of the manufacturer or remanufacturer:
This report is submitted pursuant to Sections 213 and 208 of the Clean Air Act. This production line testing program was conducted in complete conformance with all applicable regulations under 40 CFR part 92. No emission-related changes to production processes or quality control procedures for the engine family tested have been made during this production line testing program that affect locomotives or locomotive engines from the production line. All data and information reported herein is, to the best of (Company Name) knowledge, true and accurate. I am aware of the penalties associated with violations of the Clean Air Act and the regulations thereunder.
