Recordkeeping is an essential component of a CAFO permit. A producer must keep records current to satisfy the requirements of the regulations. Additionally, without current records, inspectors cannot determine and producers cannot prove the nutrient Management plan (NMP) has been implemented as approved. All records required by the regulation must be maintained for five years, and must be made available to TDEC or EPA upon request.
