(b) A Simple ACDP is a permit that contains:
(A) All relevant applicable requirements for source operation, including general ACDP conditions for incorporating generally applicable requirements;
(B) PSELs at less than the SER for all regulated pollutants emitted at more than the de minimis emission level according to OAR chapter 340, division 222; and

(7)
(a) Notwithstanding the other provisions of this division that establish the eligibility of a source for different types of ACDPs, DEQ may determine, pursuant to the standards described in subsection (b), that the owner or operator of a source is ineligible for certain types of ACDP and must be issued a different type of ACDP;
(b) DEQ will make a determination about which type of ACDP that the owner or operator of source must obtain based upon the following considerations:
(A) The nature, extent, toxicity and impact on human health and the environment of the source's emissions;
(B) The complexity of the source and the rules applicable to that source;
(C) The complexity of the emission controls, potential threat to human health and the environment if the emission controls fail, and the source's capacity;
(D) The location of the source and its proximity to places where people live and work; and
(E) The compliance history of the source, including by the source's:
(i) Current corporate officers, managers, members of the board of directors, general partners or similar persons, provided that the person exercises or will exercise substantial control on behalf of or over the facility that is the subject of the application or permit;
(ii) Parent corporations, or similar business entities, that exercise substantial control over the facility that is the subject of the application or permit; and
(iii) Subsidiary corporations, or similar business entities, over which the applicant or permittee exercises substantial control.
