    (C) Requires, to the extent the State adopts provisions for allocations or auctions of CSAPR NOX Annual allowances for any such control period to any CSAPR NOX Annual units covered by §§97.411(b)(1) and 97.412(a) of this chapter, that the State or the permitting authority submit such allocations or the results of such auctions (except allocations or results of auctions to such units of CSAPR NOX Annual allowances remaining in a set-aside after completion of the allocations or auctions for which the set-aside was created) to the Administrator by July 1 of the year of such control period.

    (D) Does not provide for any change, after the submission deadlines in paragraphs (a)(5)(i)(B) and (C) of this section, in the allocations submitted to the Administrator by such deadlines and does not provide for any change in any allocation determined and recorded by the Administrator under subpart AAAAA of part 97 of this chapter;

    (iii) May substitute the name of the State for the term “State” as used in subpart AAAAA of part 97 of this chapter, to the extent the Administrator determines that such substitutions do not make substantive changes in the provisions in §§97.402 through 97.435 of this chapter; and

    (iv) Must not include any of the requirements imposed on any unit in Indian country within the borders of the State in the provisions in §§97.402 through 97.435 of this chapter and must not include the provisions in §§97.411(b)(2) and (c)(5)(iii), 97.412(b), and 97.421(h) and (j) of this chapter, all of which provisions will continue to apply under any portion of the CSAPR Federal Implementation Plan that is not replaced by the SIP revision;

    (v) Provided that, if and when any covered unit is located in Indian country within the borders of the State, the Administrator may modify his or her approval of the SIP revision to exclude the provisions in §§97.402 (definitions of “common designated representative”, “common designated representative's assurance level”, and “common designated representative's share”), 97.406(c)(2), and 97.425 of this chapter and the portions of other provisions of subpart AAAAA of part 97 of this chapter referencing these sections and may modify any portion of the CSAPR Federal Implementation Plan that is not replaced by the SIP revision to include these provisions;

    (i) The provisions of paragraph (b)(2)(i) or (iii) of this section, as applicable, will no longer apply to sources in the State, unless the Administrator's approval of the SIP revision is partial or conditional, and will continue to apply to sources in any Indian country within the borders of the State, provided that if the CSAPR Federal Implementation Plan was promulgated as a partial rather than full remedy for an obligation of the State to address interstate air pollution, the SIP revision likewise will constitute a partial rather than full remedy for the State's obligation unless provided otherwise in the Administrator's approval of the SIP revision; and

    (ii) For a State listed in §51.121(c) of this chapter, the State's adoption of the regulations included in such approved SIP revision will satisfy with regard to the sources subject to such regulations, including any sources made subject to such regulations pursuant to paragraph (b)(9)(ii) of this section, the requirement under §51.121(r)(2) of this chapter for the State to revise its SIP to adopt control measures with regard to such sources.

    (11) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (b)(10)(i) of this section—

    (i) If, at the time of such approval of the State's SIP revision, the Administrator has already started recording any allocations of CSAPR NOX Ozone Season Group 1 allowances under subpart BBBBB of part 97 of this chapter, or allocations of CSAPR NOX Ozone Season Group 2 allowances under subpart EEEEE of part 97 of this chapter, to units in the State for a control period in any year, the provisions of subpart BBBBB of part 97 of this chapter authorizing the Administrator to complete the allocation and recordation of CSAPR NOX Ozone Season Group 1 allowances, or of subpart EEEEE of part 97 of this chapter authorizing the Administrator to complete the allocation and recordation of CSAPR NOX Ozone Season Group 2 allowances, as applicable, to units in the State for each such control period shall continue to apply, unless provided otherwise by such approval of the State's SIP revision; and

    (ii) The provisions of §97.526(c)(1) through (6) of this chapter authorizing the Administrator to remove CSAPR NOX Ozone Season Group 1 allowances from any account where such allowances are held and to allocate and record amounts of CSAPR NOX Ozone Season Group 2 allowances in place of any CSAPR NOX Ozone Season Group 1 allowances that have been so removed or that have not been initially recorded, and the provisions of §97.526(c)(7) of this chapter authorizing the use of CSAPR NOX Ozone Season Group 2 allowances to satisfy requirements to hold CSAPR NOX Ozone Season Group 1 allowances, will continue to apply.
