Station/Analyzer Close-Out Form Instruction

To permanently or temporarily close-out a station or analyzer, please read the following instructions carefully and ensure you have all the required information prior to completing your Station/Analyzer Close-Out Form. The Station/Analyzer Close-Out Form must be submitted electronically. When completing the form, do not use ditto marks or enter “same” in any fields.

After GCAF determines the form is complete and the supporting documents meet the requirements, your form will be conditionally approved. In order for the close-out to be complete, GCAF must complete a close-out audit on your station and analyzer. Please note: It is the station owner’s responsibility to keep the analyzer and phone line working until the close-out audit can be performed. Failure to do so is a violation of the I/M Rules and the owner could be subject to a monetary penalty in an amount up to $5,000.
