(2) the transferor account includes each SO2 allowance identified by serial number in the transfer.
(b) An SO2 allowance transfer that is submitted for recordation following the SO2 allowance transfer deadline and that includes any SO2 allowances allocated for a control period prior to or the same as the control period to which the SO2 allowance transfer deadline applies will not be recorded until after completion of the process of recordation of SO2 allowance allocations in section 238-6.4(b) of this Part.
