b. For any new and existing bulk volatile organic liquid storage vessels (including petroleum liquid storage vessels) that would otherwise only be subject to notification, recordkeeping and reporting requirements, compliance with the PSD permit shall constitute compliance with 9VAC5 Chapter 50, Part II, Article 5 (9VAC5-50-400 et seq.).
