Yes. Although an independent lab may use a substitute lab for certain tasks, a refiner is required to name a single independent lab for each refinery. It is this independent lab with which EPA will communicate regarding the independent sampling and testing program, and who must submit all reports to EPA. A refiner that operates more than one refinery may, however, use the same independent lab for each refinery.(7/1/94)
