   (3)  The Department or the EPA determines that the permit contains a mistake or that inaccurate statements were made in establishing the emissions standards or other terms or conditions of the permit.

   (4)  The Administrator of the EPA or the Department determines that the permit will be revised or revoked to assure compliance with the applicable requirements.

 (b)  Proceedings to revise a permit shall follow the same procedures as apply to initial permit issuance and shall affect only parts of the permit for which cause to revise exists. The revision shall be made as expeditiously as practicable.
