a) The licensee shall be subject to the provisions of the Act and to all rules, regulations, and orders of the Agency. The terms and conditions of the license are subject to amendment, revision, or modification, by reason of amendments to, or by reason of regulations and orders issued in accordance with, the terms of the Act.

b) Each person licensed by the Agency pursuant to this Part shall confine possession and use of materials to the locations and purposes authorized in the license.

c) The licensee shall not process any ore or place any byproduct material in any surface impoundment or disposal area until the Agency has inspected the surface impoundment or disposal area and, based on the results of the inspection, has determined that the surface impoundment or disposal area conforms to the description, design and construction described in the application for the license.

d) No license issued pursuant to this Part, or any right under that license, may be transferred, assigned or in any manner disposed of, either voluntarily or involuntarily, directly or indirectly, through transfer of control of the license to any person, unless the Agency finds, after securing information, that the transfer is in accordance with the provisions of the Act and gives its consent in writing in the form of a license amendment.
