Current through Register 2022 Notice Reg. No. 16, April 25, 2022

(a) The Executive Officer for just cause may suspend or revoke registration in any of the following circumstances:
(1) the holder of registration has violated one or more terms and conditions of registration or has refused to comply with any of the requirements of this article;
(2) the holder of registration has materially misrepresented the meaning, findings, effect or any other material aspect of the registration application, including submitting false or incomplete information in its application for registration regardless of the holder's personal knowledge of the falsity or incompleteness of the information;
(3) the test data submitted by the holder of registration to show compliance with this regulation have been found to be inaccurate or invalid;
(4) enforcement officers of the ARB or the districts, after presentation of proper credentials, have been denied access, during normal business hours or hours of operation, to any facility or location where registered engines and equipment units are operated or stored and are prevented from inspecting such engines or equipment units as provided for in this article (the duty to provide access applies whether or not the holder of registration owns or controls the facility or location in question);
(5) enforcement officers of the ARB or the districts, after presentation of proper credentials, have been denied access to any records required by this regulation for the purpose of inspection and duplication;
(6) the registered engine or equipment unit has failed in-use to comply with the findings set forth in the registration. For the purposes of this section, noncompliance with the registration may include, but is not limited to:
(A) a repeated failure to perform to the standards set forth in this article; or
(B) modification of the engine or equipment unit that results in an increase in emissions or changes the efficiency or operating conditions of such engine or equipment unit, without prior notice to and approval by the Executive Officer; or
(7) the holder of registration has failed to take requested corrective action as set forth in a Notice of Violation or Notice to Comply within the time period set forth in such notice.
(8) the holder of the registration has failed to pay fees assessed by either the Executive Officer or district within 120 after the specified due date and there is no pending appeal.
(b) A holder of registration may be subject to a suspension or revocation action pursuant to this section based upon the actions of an agent, employee, licensee, or other authorized representative.
(c) The Executive Officer shall notify each holder of registration by certified mail of any action taken by the Executive Officer to suspend or revoke any registration granted under this article. The notice shall set forth the reasons for and evidence supporting the action(s) taken. A suspension or revocation is effective upon receipt of the notification.
(d) A holder of registration having received a notice to revoke or suspend registration may request that the action be stayed pending a hearing under section 2464. In determining whether to grant the stay, the Executive Officer shall consider the reasonable likelihood that the registration holder of registration will prevail on the merits of the appeal and the harm the holder of registration will likely suffer if the stay is not granted. The Executive Officer shall deny the stay if the adverse effects of the stay on the public health, safety, and welfare outweigh the harm to the holder of registration if the stay is not granted.
(e) Once a registration has been suspended pursuant to (a) above, the holder of registration shall satisfy and correct all noted reasons for the suspension and submit a written report to the Executive Officer advising him or her of all such steps taken by the holder before the Executive Officer will consider reinstating the registration.
(f) After the Executive Officer suspends or revokes a registration pursuant to this section and prior to commencement of a hearing under section 2464, if the holder of registration demonstrates to the Executive Officer's satisfaction that the decision to suspend or revoke the registration was based on erroneous information, the Executive Officer will reinstate the registration.
(g) Nothing in this section shall prohibit the Executive Officer from taking any other action provided for by law for violations of the Health and Safety Code.
