The report presents recommended quality assurance (QA) procedures for opacity continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS's) installed at electric utility steam generating stations. The field study included opacity CEMS's installed on six coal-fired electric utility generating units located at four generating stations, each of which is owned by a different utility company. Section 2.0 of the report outlines the major elements of a QA plan: (1) daily QA checks, (2) periodic QA checks and preventive maintenance, (3) corrective action procedures, and (4) accuracy checks. Procedures that may be included are identified and described for each of the four elements. Recommendations regarding the appropriate procedures for an initial QA plan are also provided. Section 3.0 describes briefly the organization and interaction of the elements of the QA plan. Section 4.0 presents an approach that may be used for the implementation and revision of the QA plan to optimize its usefulness and cost-effectiveness. Section 5.0 provides comments regarding considerations affecting the assignment of the various QA responsibilities at a particular plant.
