Tenn. Comp. R. & Regs. 0400-12-01-.07 - PERMITTING OF HAZARDOUS WASTE TREATMENT, STORAGE, AND DISPOSAL FACILITIES

(1) General
(a) Purpose [ 40 CFR 270.1 ] The purpose of this rule is to establish the procedures, documentation, and other requirements which must be met in order for a person to be permitted to operate a hazardous waste treatment, storage, or disposal facility in Tennessee.
(b) Scope/Applicability [ 40 CFR 270.1 ]
1. The requirements of this rule apply as specified to owners and operators of new and existing hazardous waste management facilities in Tennessee. Except as may be specifically provided otherwise in this rule or in Rule 0400-12-01-.02:
(i) No new hazardous waste management facility in Tennessee can lawfully treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste unless the owner or operator has a permit under the Act; and
(ii) No existing hazardous waste management facility in Tennessee can lawfully treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste unless the owner and operator has a permit under the Act or interim status as provided in paragraph (3) of this rule.
2. A permit is required for the treatment, storage, and disposal of any "hazardous waste" as identified or listed in Rule 0400-12-01-.02. The terms "treatment", "storage", "disposal" and "hazardous waste" are defined in Rule 0400-12-01-.01(2)(a). Owners and operators of hazardous waste management units must have permits during the active life (including the closure period) of the unit. Owners and operators of surface impoundments, landfills, land treatment units, and waste pile units that received wastes after July 26, 1982, or that certified closure (according to Rule 0400-12-01-.05(7)(f) ) after January 26, 1983, must have post-closure permits, unless they demonstrate closure by removal or decontamination as provided under parts 7 and 8 of this subparagraph, or obtain an enforceable document in lieu of a post-closure permit, as provided under part 9 of this subparagraph. If a post-closure permit is required, the permit must address applicable Rule 0400-12-01-.06 Groundwater Monitoring, Unsaturated Zone Monitoring, Corrective Action, and Post-closure Care Requirements. The denial of a permit for the active life of a hazardous waste management facility or unit does not affect the requirement to obtain a post-closure permit under this paragraph.
3. Owners and operators of certain facilities require permits under the Act as well as permits under other environmental regulatory programs for certain aspects of the facility operation. Permits under the Act are required for:
(i) Injection wells that dispose of hazardous waste, and associated surface facilities that treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste. However, the owner or operator with permits issued under the Tennessee Water Quality Control Act (T.C.A. §§ 69-3-101 et seq.), through Chapter 0400-45-06 of the rules of the State of Tennessee, and under Part C of the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act (42 U.S.C. 3001 et seq.), will be deemed to have a permit under the Act for the injection well itself if they comply with the requirements of subpart (c)1(ii) and part (c)2 of this paragraph (permit by rule for injection wells).
(ii) Off-site wastewater treatment units. However, the owner or operator of an off-site wastewater treatment unit that complies with the requirements of subpart (c)1(iii) of this paragraph will be deemed to have a permit under the Act (permit-by-rule for off-site wastewater treatment units).
(iii) Treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste at facilities requiring a pollutant discharge permit under T.C.A. §§ 69-3-101 et seq. However, the owner or operator of a publicly owned treatment works receiving hazardous waste will be deemed to have a permit under the Act for that waste if they comply with the requirements of subpart (c)1(i) and part (c)2 of this paragraph (permit by rule for POTWs).
4. The following persons are among those who are not required to obtain a permit under the Act and this rule:
(i) Generators who accumulate hazardous waste on-site in compliance with all of the conditions for exemption provided in subparagraphs (1)(e), (f), (g), and (h) of Rule 0400-12-01-.03;
(ii) Persons who own or operate facilities solely for the treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste excluded from regulation under this rule by subparagraph (1)(d) of Rule 0400-12-01-.02 or subparagraph (1)(e) of Rule 0400-12-01-.03 (very small quantity generator exemption);
(iii) Owners or operators of totally enclosed treatment facilities as defined in Rule 0400-12-01-.01(2)(a);
(iv) Owners or operators of one of the following units, as defined in Rule 0400-12-01-.01(2)(a):

Reverse distributors are subject to regulation under paragraph (16) of Rule 0 40012-01-.09 for the accumulation of potentially creditable hazardous waste pharmaceuticals and evaluated hazardous waste pharmaceuticals.
5.
(i) A person is not required to obtain a permit under the Act for treatment or containment activities taken during immediate response to any of the following situations:
(I) A discharge of a hazardous waste;
(II) An imminent and substantial threat of a discharge of hazardous waste;
(III) A discharge of a material which, when discharged, becomes a hazardous waste; or
(IV) An immediate threat to human health, public safety, property, or the environment from the known or suspected presence of military munitions, other explosive material, or an explosive device, as determined by an explosive or munitions emergency response specialist as defined in Rule 0400-12-01-.01(2)(a).
(ii) Any person who continues or initiates hazardous waste treatment or containment activities after the immediate response is over is subject to all applicable requirements of this rule for those activities.
(iii) In the case of emergency responses involving military munitions, the responding military emergency response specialist's organizational unit must retain records for three years identifying the dates of the response, the responsible persons responding, the type and description of material addressed, and its disposition.
6. The Commissioner may issue or deny a permit for one or more units at a facility without simultaneously issuing or denying a permit to all of the units at the facility. The interim status of any unit for which a permit has not been issued or denied is not affected by the issuance or denial of a permit to any other unit at the facility.
7. Owners/operators of surface impoundments, land treatment units, and waste piles closing by removal or decontamination standards under Rule 0400-12-01-.05(7)(b) must obtain a post-closure permit unless they can demonstrate to the Commissioner that the closure meets the standards for closure by removal or decontamination in Rule 0400-12-01-.06(11)(i), (12)(i) or (13)(k) 5 respectively. The demonstration may be made in the following ways:
(i) If the owner/operator has submitted a Part B application for a post-closure permit, the owner/operator may request a determination, based on information contained in the application, that closure by Rule 0400-12-01.06 removal standards were met. If the Commissioner believes that Rule 0400-12-01-.06 standards were met, he/she will notify the public of this proposed decision, allow for public comment, and reach a final determination according to the procedures in part 8 of this subparagraph.
(ii) If the owner/operator has not submitted a Part B application for a post-closure permit, the owner/operator may petition the Commissioner for a determination that a post-closure permit is not required because the closure met the applicable Rule 0400-12-01-.06 closure standards.
(I) The petition must include data demonstrating that closure by removal or decontamination standards were met, or it must demonstrate that the unit closed met or exceeded the applicable Rule 0400-12-01-.06 closure-by-removal standards.
(II) The Commissioner shall approve or deny the petition according to the procedures outlined in part 8 of this subparagraph.
8.
(i) If a facility owner/operator seeks an equivalency demonstration under part 7 of this subparagraph, the Commissioner will provide the public, through a newspaper notice, published by the owner or operator, as provided for in subparagraph (7)(e) of this rule and as prepared and required by the Commissioner, the opportunity to submit written comments on the information submitted by the owner/operator within 30 days from the date of the notice. The Commissioner will also, in response to a request or at his/her own discretion, hold a public hearing whenever such a hearing might clarify one or more issues concerning the equivalence of the Rule 0400-12-01-.05 closure to a Rule 0400-12-01-.06 closure. The Commissioner will give public notice, published by the owner or operator, as provided for in subparagraph (7)(e) of this rule and as prepared and required by the Commissioner, of the hearing at least 30 days before it occurs. (Public notice of the hearing may be given at the same time as notice of the opportunity for the public to submit written comments, and the two notices may be combined.) The owner or operator shall provide proof of the completion of all notice requirements to the Commissioner within ten (10) days following conclusion of the public notice procedures.
(ii) The Commissioner will determine whether the Rule 0400-12-01-.05 closure met Rule 0400-12-01-.06 closure by removal or decontamination requirements within 90 days of its receipt. If the Commissioner finds that the closure did not meet the applicable Rule 0400-12-01-.06 standards, he/she will provide the owner/operator with a written statement of the reasons why the closure failed to meet Rule 0400-12-01-.06 standards. The owner/operator may submit additional information in support of an equivalency demonstration within 30 days after receiving such written statement. The Commissioner will review any additional information submitted and make a final determination within 60 days.
(iii) If the Commissioner determines that the facility did not close in accordance with Rule 0400-12-01-.06 closure-by-removal standards, the facility is subject to post-closure permitting requirements.
9. Enforceable documents for post-closure care. At the discretion of the Commissioner, an owner or operator may obtain, in lieu of a post-closure permit, an enforceable document imposing the requirements of Rule 0400-12-01-.05(7)(l). "Enforceable document" means an order, a plan, or other document issued by EPA or by the Commissioner including, but not limited to a corrective action order, a remedial action order, or a closure or post-closure plan.

(Note: As provided in Rule 0400-12-01-.08(1)(d), no permit or other authorization shall be issued or renewed by the Division of Solid Waste Management pursuant to this Chapter or Chapter 0400-12-02 until all fees and/or penalties owed by the applicant to the Division are paid in full, unless a time schedule for payments has been approved and all payments are current or contested fees or penalties are under appeal.)

(e) Hazardous Waste Incinerator Permits [ 40 CFR 270.62 ]

When an owner or operator of a hazardous waste incineration unit becomes subject to RCRA permit requirements after October 12, 2005, or when an owner or operator of an existing hazardous waste incineration unit demonstrates compliance with the air emission standards and limitations in 40 CFR 63 Subpart EEE (i.e., by conducting a comprehensive performance test and submitting a Notification of Compliance under 40 CFR 63.1207(j) and 63.1210(d) documenting compliance with all applicable requirements of 40 CFR 63 Subpart EEE), the requirements of this subparagraph do not apply, except those provisions the Commissioner determines are necessary to ensure compliance with parts (15)(f)1 and 3 of Rule 0400-12-01-.06 if you elect to comply with item (12)(a)1(i)(I) of this rule to minimize emissions of toxic compounds from startup, shutdown, and malfunction events. Nevertheless, the Commissioner may apply the provisions of this subparagraph, on a case-by-case basis, for purposes of information collection in accordance with subparagraphs (2)(g) and (h) and subparts (8)(b)2(ii) and (iii) of this rule.

1. For the purposes of determining operational readiness following completion of physical construction, the Commissioner must establish permit conditions, including but not limited to allowable waste feeds and operating conditions, in the permit to a new hazardous waste incinerator. These permit conditions will be effective for the minimum time required to bring the incinerator to a point of operational readiness to conduct a trial burn, not to exceed 720 hours operating time for treatment of hazardous waste. The Commissioner may extend the duration of this operational period once, for up to 720 additional hours, at the request of the applicant when good cause is shown. The permit may be modified to reflect the extension according to part (9)(c)5 of this rule.
(i) Applicants must submit a statement, with Part B of the permit application, which suggests the conditions necessary to operate in compliance with the performance standards of Rule 0400-12-01-.06(15)(d) during this period. This statement should include, at a minimum, restrictions on waste constituents, waste feed rates and the operating parameters identified in Rule 0400-12-01-.06(15)(f).
(ii) The Commissioner will review this statement and any other relevant information submitted with Part B of the permit application and specify requirements for this period sufficient to meet the performance standards of Rule 0400-12-01-.06(15)(d) based on his engineering judgment.
2. For the purposes of determining feasibility of compliance with the performance standards of Rule 0400-12-01-.06(15)(d) and of determining adequate operating conditions under Rule 0400-12-01-.06(15)(f), the Commissioner must establish conditions in the permit for a new hazardous waste incinerator to be effective during the trial burn.
(i) Applicants must propose a trial burn plan, prepared under subpart (ii) of this subparagraph with a Part B of the permit application.
(ii) The trial burn plan must include the following information:
(I) An analysis of each waste or mixture of wastes to be burned which includes:
I. Heat value of the waste in the form and composition in which it will be burned.
II. Viscosity (if applicable), or description of the physical form of the waste.
III. An identification of any hazardous organic constituents listed in Appendix VIII of Rule 0400-12-01-.02, which are present in the waste to be burned, except that the applicant need not analyze for constituents listed in Appendix VIII of Rule 0400-12-01-.02 which would reasonably not be expected to be found in the waste. The constituents excluded from analysis must be identified, and the basis for the exclusion stated. The waste analysis must rely on appropriate analytical techniques.
IV. An approximate quantification of the hazardous constituents identified in the waste, within the precision produced by appropriate analytical methods.
(II) A detailed engineering description of the incinerator for which the permit is sought including:
I. Manufacturer's name and model number of incinerator (if available).
II. Type of incinerator.
III. Linear dimensions of the incinerator unit including the cross sectional area of combustion chamber.
IV. Description of the auxiliary fuel system (type/feed).
V. Capacity of prime mover.
VI. Description of automatic waste feed cut-off system(s).
VII. Stack gas monitoring and pollution control equipment.
VIII. Nozzle and burner design.
IX. Construction materials.
X. Location and description of temperature, pressure, and flow indicating and control devices.
(III) A detailed description of sampling and monitoring procedures, including sampling and monitoring locations in the system, the equipment to be used, sampling and monitoring frequency, and planned analytical procedures for sample analysis.
(IV) A detailed test schedule for each waste for which the trial burn is planned including date(s), duration, quantity of waste to be burned, and other factors relevant to the Commissioner's decision under subpart (v) of this part.
(V) A detailed test protocol, including, for each waste identified, the ranges of temperature, waste feed rate, combustion gas velocity, use of auxiliary fuel, and any other relevant parameters that will be varied to affect the destruction and removal efficiency of the incinerator.
(VI) A description of, and planned operating conditions for, any emission control equipment which will be used.
(VII) Procedures for rapidly stopping waste feed, shutting down the incinerator, and controlling emissions in the event of an equipment malfunction.
(VIII) Such other information as the Commissioner reasonably finds necessary to determine whether to approve the trial burn plan in light of the purposes of this paragraph and the criteria in subpart (v) of this part.
(iii) The Commissioner, in reviewing the trial burn plan, shall evaluate the sufficiency of the information provided and may require the applicant to supplement this information, if necessary, to achieve the purposes of this subparagraph.
(iv) Based on the waste analysis data in the trial burn plan, the Commissioner will specify as trial Principal Organic Hazardous Constituents (POHCs), those constituents for which destruction and removal efficiencies must be calculated during the trial burn. These trial POHCs will be specified by the Commissioner based on his estimate of the difficulty of incineration of the constituents identified in the waste analysis, their concentration or mass in the waste feed, and, for wastes listed in Rule 0400-12-01-.02(4), the hazardous waste organic constituent or constituents identified in Appendix VII of that rule as the basis for listing.
(v) The Commissioner shall approve a trial burn plan if he finds that:
(I) The trial burn is likely to determine whether the incinerator performance standard required by Rule 0400-12-01-.06(15)(d) can be met;
(II) The trial burn itself will not present an imminent hazard to human health or the environment;
(III) The trial burn will help the Commissioner to determine operating requirements to be specified under Rule 0400-12-01-.06(15)(f); and
(IV) The information sought in items (v)(I) and (II) of this part cannot reasonably be developed through other means.
(vi) The Commissioner must send a notice to all persons on the facility mailing list as set forth in item (7)(e)3(i)(V) of this rule and to the appropriate units of State and local government as set forth in item (7)(e)3(i)(VI) of this rule announcing the scheduled commencement and completion dates for the trial burn. The applicant may not commence the trial burn until after the Commissioner has issued such notice.
(I) This notice must be mailed within a reasonable time period before the scheduled trial burn. An additional notice is not required if the trial burn is delayed due to circumstances beyond the control of the facility or the permitting agency.
(II) This notice must contain:
I. The name and telephone number of the applicant's contact person;
II. The name and telephone number of the permitting agency's contact office;
III. The location where the approved trial burn plan and any supporting documents can be reviewed and copied; and
IV. An expected time period for commencement and completion of the trial burn.
(vii) During each approved trial burn (or as soon after the burn as is practicable), the applicant must make the following determinations:
(I) A quantitative analysis of the trial POHCs in the waste feed to the incinerator.

(ii) The notices required under subpart (i) of this part must include:
(I) The date, time, and location of the meeting;
(II) A brief description of the purpose of the meeting;
(III) A brief description of the facility and proposed operations, including the address or a map (e.g., a sketched or copied street map) of the facility location;
(IV) A statement encouraging people to contact the facility at least 72 hours before the meeting if they need special access to participate in the meeting; and
(V) The name, address, and telephone number of a contact person for the applicant.
(2) Application For a Permit
(a) General [ 40 CFR 270.10 & 270.11]
1. Any person who is required to have a permit (including new applicants and permittees with expiring permits) shall complete, sign, and submit an application to the Commissioner as described in this paragraph. Persons currently authorized with interim status (paragraph (3) of this rule) shall apply for permits when required by the Commissioner. Persons covered by permits-by-rule (subparagraph (1)(c) of this rule) need not apply. Procedures for application, issuance, and administration of emergency permits are found in subparagraph (1)(d) of this rule. Procedures for application, issuance, and administration of research, development, and demonstration permits are found exclusively in subparagraph (1)(g) of this rule. Additionally, subparagraphs (1)(e) and (f) of this rule provide special requirements concerning applications for, respectively, hazardous waste incinerator permits and permits for land treatment demonstrations.
2. When a facility is owned by one person but is operated by another person, it is the operator's duty to obtain a permit, except that the owner must also sign the permit application.
3. The Commissioner shall not issue a permit before receiving a complete application for a permit except for permits-by-rule or emergency permits. An application for a permit is complete when the Commissioner receives an application form and any supplemental information which are completed to his or her satisfaction. An application for a permit is complete notwithstanding the failure of the owner or operator to submit the exposure information described in subparagraph (f) of this paragraph. The Commissioner may deny a permit for the active life of a hazardous waste management facility or unit before receiving a complete application for a permit.
4. Permit applicants shall keep records of all data and supplemental information used to complete permit applications for a period of at least 3 years from the date the application is signed.
5. Four copies of the required permit application information must be submitted to the Commissioner.
6. All reports, plans, specifications, and manuals must be prepared in proper technical format, typewritten, and bound (in 8 1/2 x 11 inch format). Any documents prepared by firms other than the owner or operator of the facility shall be accompanied by the letter of transmittal to the client.
7. All permit applications will be signed as follows:
(i) For a corporation: by a responsible corporate officer. For the purpose of this part, a responsible corporate officer means:
(I) A president, secretary, treasurer, or vice-president of the corporation in charge of a principal business function, or any other person who performs similar policy- or decision-making functions for the corporation, or
(II) The manager of one or more manufacturing, production or operation facilities employing more than 250 persons or having gross annual sales or expenditures exceeding 25 million dollars (in second quarter 1980 dollars), if authority to sign documents has been assigned or delegated to the manager in accordance with corporate procedures.

(Note: The Department does not require specific assignments or delegations of authority to responsible corporate officers identified in this subpart. The Department will presume that these responsible corporate officers have the requisite authority to sign permit applications unless the corporation has notified the Commissioner to the contrary. Corporate procedures governing authority to sign permit applications may provide for assignment or delegation to applicable corporate positions under item (II) of this subpart rather than to specific individuals.)

(ii) For a partnership or sole proprietorship: by a general partner or the proprietor, respectively.
(iii) For a municipality, State, Federal, or other public agency: by either a principal executive officer or ranking elected official. For purposes of this part, a principal executive officer of a Federal agency includes:
(I) The chief executive officer of the agency, or
(II) A senior executive officer having responsibility for the overall operations of a principal geographic unit of the agency (e.g., Regional Administrators of EPA).
8. All reports required by permits and other information requested by the Commissioner shall be signed by a person described in part 7 of this paragraph or by a duly authorized representative of that person. A person is a duly authorized representative only if:
(i) The authorization is made in writing by a person described in part 7 of this subparagraph;
(ii) The authorization specifies either an individual or a position having responsibility for the overall operation of the regulated facility or activity, such as the position of plant manager, operator of a well or a well field, superintendent, or person of equivalent responsibility. (A duly authorized representative may thus be either a named individual or any individual occupying a named position); and
(iii) The written authorization is submitted to the Commissioner.
9. If an authorization under part 8 of this subparagraph is no longer accurate because a different individual or position has responsibility for the overall operation of the facility, a new authorization satisfying the requirements of part 8 of this subparagraph must be submitted to the Commissioner prior to or together with any reports, information, or applications to be signed by an authorized representative.
10.
(i) Any person signing a document under parts 7 or 8 of this subparagraph must make the following certification:

"I certify under penalty of law that this document and all attachments were prepared under my direction or supervision in accordance to a system designed to assure that qualified personnel properly gather and evaluate the information submitted. Based on my inquiry of the person or persons who manage the system, or those persons directly responsible for gathering the information, the information submitted is, to the best of my knowledge and belief, true, accurate, and complete. I am aware that there are significant penalties for submitting false information, including the possibility of fine and imprisonment for knowing violations."

(ii) For remedial action plans (RAPs) under paragraph (11) of this rule, if the operator certifies according to subpart (i) of this part, then the owner may choose to make the following certification instead of the certification in subpart (i) of this part:

"Based on my knowledge of the conditions of the property described in the RAP and my inquiry of the person or persons who manage the system referenced in the operator's certification, or those persons directly responsible for gathering the information, the information submitted is, to the best of my knowledge and belief, true, accurate, and complete. I am aware that there are significant penalties for submitting false information, including the possibility of fine and imprisonment for knowing violations."

(b) Existing Facilities [ 40 CFR 270.10(e) ]
1. Owners and operators of existing hazardous waste management facilities or of hazardous waste management facilities in existence on the effective date of statutory or regulatory amendments under the Act that render the facility subject to the requirement to have a permit must submit Part A of their permit application no later than whichever of the following dates first occurs:
(i) Ninety days after the effective date of regulations which first require them to comply with the standards set forth in Rules 0400-12-01-.05 or 0400-1201-.09; or
(ii) Thirty days after the date they first became subject to the standards set forth in Rules 0400-12-01-.05 or 0400-12-01-.09; or
(iii) For generators generating greater than 100 kilograms but less than 1000 kilograms in a calendar month and treating, storing, or disposing of these wastes in an on-site facility for which he is required to apply for and obtain a permit under this rule, by March 24, 1987.
2. Owners and operators of existing facilities who submitted Part A application (or their equivalent) to the Commissioner under emergency rules promulgated earlier under the Act shall not be required to resubmit their Part A application unless required to do so under subparagraph (d) of this paragraph.
3. The Commissioner may by issuance of a public notice extend the date by which owners and operators of specified classes of existing hazardous waste management facilities must submit Part A of their permit application if he finds that
(i) There has been substantial confusion as to whether the owners and operators of such facilities were required to file a permit application and
(ii) Such confusion is attributable to ambiguities in Rules 0400-12-01-.01, 0400-12-01-.02, or 0400-12-01-.05.
4. The Commissioner may by compliance order issued under T.C.A. § 68-212-111 extend the date by which the owner and operator of an existing hazardous waste management facility must submit Part A of their permit application.
5. The owner or operator of an existing facility must submit Part B of their permit application as required by the Commissioner or Board. The Commissioner or Board may require such submission at any time after the due date of the Part A application for the facility, except that any owner or operator of an existing facility shall be allowed at least six months from the date of request to submit Part B of the application. Any owner or operator of an existing facility may voluntarily submit Part B of the application at any time.
6. Failure to furnish a requested Part B application on time, or to furnish in full the information required by the Part B application, is grounds for termination of interim status.
7. The Commissioner shall assign an Installation Identification Number to the owner or operator of an existing facility upon receipt of the Part A application.

(Note: Owners or operators of an existing hazardous waste management facility required by this subparagraph to submit a Part B permit application are required to comply with subparagraph (1)(m) of this rule.)

(c) New Facilities [ 40 CFR 270.10(f), 124.31 ]
1. Except as provided in part 4 of this subparagraph, no person shall begin physical construction of a new hazardous waste management facility without having submitted Part A and Part B of the permit application and having received an effective permit.
2. An application for a permit for a new facility (including both Part A and Part B) may be filed with the Commissioner at any time after promulgation of those standards in Rule 0400-12-01-.06 applicable to such facility. Except as provided in part 4 of this subparagraph, all applications must be submitted at least 180 days before physical construction is expected to commence.
3. The owner or operator of a hazardous waste treatment or disposal facility which he anticipates will receive hazardous wastes generated off-site must submit his Part A permit application, completed to the best of his ability, to the Commissioner at least 120 days prior to submission of his Part B permit application. Failure to do so will result in the Commissioner delaying the processing of the Part B application for an equivalent amount of time.
4. Notwithstanding part 1 of this subparagraph, a person may construct a facility for the incineration of polychlorinated biphenyls pursuant to an approval issued by the EPA under section (6)(e) of the federal Toxic Substance Control Act and any person owning or operating such a facility may, at any time after construction or operation of such facility has begun, file an application for a permit to incinerate hazardous waste pursuant to this rule.

(Note: Owners or operators of a new hazardous waste management facility, including a new commercial hazardous waste management facility, are required to comply with subparagraph (1)(m) of this rule prior to submitting a Part B permit application.)

(d) Updating Permit Application [ 40 CFR 270.10(g) ]
1. If any owner or operator of a hazardous waste management facility has filed Part A of a permit application, the owner or operator shall file an amended Part A application with the Commissioner:
(i) No later than thirty days after the date on which additional hazardous wastes listed or otherwise identified by revision of Rule 0400-12-01-.02 become subject to the requirements of this rule, if the facility is treating, storing, or disposing of any those newly listed or identified wastes;
(ii) As necessary to comply with provisions of paragraph (3)(c) of this rule for changes during interim status.
2. The owner or operator of a facility who fails to comply with the updating requirements of part 1 of this subparagraph does not receive interim status as to the wastes not covered by duly filed Part A applications.
(e) Reapplications [ 40 CFR 270.10(h) ]

Any hazardous waste management facility with an effective permit shall submit a new application at least 180 days before the expiration date of the effective permit, unless permission for a later date has been granted by the Commissioner. (The Commissioner shall not grant permission for applications to be submitted later than the expiration date of the existing permit.) Facilities shall follow the procedure requirements of subparagraph (1)(m) of this rule for all reapplications for a permit.

(f) Exposure Information [ 40 CFR 270.10(j) ]
1. After February 2, 1986, any Part B permit application submitted by an owner or operator of a facility that stores, treats, or disposes of hazardous waste in a surface impoundment or a landfill must be accompanied by information, reasonably ascertainable by the owner or operator, on the potential for the public to be exposed to hazardous wastes or hazardous constituents through releases related to the unit. At a minimum, such information must address:
(i) Reasonably foreseeable potential releases from both normal operations and accidents at the unit, including releases associated with transportation to or from the unit;
(ii) The potential pathways of human exposure to hazardous wastes or constituents resulting from the releases described under subpart (i) of this part; and
(iii) The potential magnitude and nature of the human exposure resulting from such releases.
2. By 30 days after February 2, 1986, owners and operators of a landfill or a surface impoundment who have already submitted a Part B application must submit the exposure information required in part 1 of this subparagraph.
(g) The Commissioner may require a permittee or an applicant to submit information in order to establish permit conditions under subpart (8)(b)2(ii) and under part (8)(c)4 of this rule.
(h) General application requirements [ 40 CFR 270.10(l) ]
1. If the Commissioner concludes, based on one or more of the factors listed in subpart (i) of this part that compliance with the standards of 40 CFR part 63 , Subpart EEE alone may not be protective of human health or the environment, the Commissioner shall require the additional information or assessment(s) necessary to determine whether additional controls are necessary to ensure protection of human health and the environment. This includes information necessary to evaluate the potential risk to human health and/or the environment resulting from both direct and indirect exposure pathways. The Commissioner may also require a permittee or applicant to provide information necessary to determine whether such an assessment(s) should be required.
(i) The Commissioner shall base the evaluation of whether compliance with the standards of 40 CFR Part 63 Subpart EEE alone is protective of human health or the environment on factors relevant to the potential risk from a hazardous waste combustion unit, including as appropriate, any of the following factors:
(I) Particular site-specific considerations such as proximity to receptors (such as schools, hospitals, nursing homes, day care centers, parks, community activity centers, or other potentially sensitive receptors), unique dispersion patterns, etc.;
(II) Identities and quantities of emissions of persistent, bioaccumulative or toxic pollutants considering enforceable controls in place to limit those pollutants;
(III) Identities and quantities of nondioxin products of incomplete combustion most likely to be emitted and to pose significant risk based on known toxicities (confirmation of which should be made through emissions testing);
(IV) Identities and quantities of other off-site sources of pollutants in proximity of the facility that significantly influence interpretation of a facility-specific risk assessment;
(V) Presence of significant ecological considerations, such as the proximity of a particularly sensitive ecological area;
(VI) Volume and types of wastes, for example wastes containing highly toxic constituents;
(VII) Other on-site sources of hazardous air pollutants that significantly influence interpretation of the risk posed by the operation of the source in question;
(VIII) Adequacy of any previously conducted risk assessment, given any subsequent changes in conditions likely to affect risk; and
(IX) Such other factors as may be appropriate.
(ii) Reserved.
2. (RESERVED)
(3) Interim Status [ 40 CFR 270 Subpart G]
(a) Qualifying for Interim Status [ 40 CFR 270.70 ]
1. Any person who owns or operates an "existing HWM facility" or a facility in existence on the effective date of statutory or regulatory amendments under the Act that render the facility subject to the requirement to have a permit shall have interim status and shall be treated as having been issued a permit to the extent he or she has:
(i) Complied with the requirements of Rule 0400-12-01-.03(2) pertaining to notification of hazardous waste activity.

(Comment: Some existing facilities may not be required to file a notification under Rule 0400-12-01-.03(2). These facilities may qualify for interim status by meeting subpart (ii) of this part.)

(ii) Complied with the requirements of paragraph (2) of this rule governing submission of Part A applications;
2. Failure to Qualify for Interim Status

If the Department has reason to believe upon examination of a Part A application that it fails to meet the requirements of paragraph (4) of this rule, it shall notify the owner or operator in writing of the apparent deficiency. Such notice shall specify the grounds for Department's belief that the application is deficient. The owner or operator shall have 30 days from receipt to respond to such a notification and to explain or cure the alleged deficiency in his Part A application. If, after such notification and opportunity for response, the Department determines that the application is deficient it may take appropriate enforcement action.

3. Part 1 of this subparagraph shall not apply to any facility which has been previously denied a RCRA or a Hazardous Waste Permit or if authority to operate the facility under the Act has been previously terminated.
(b) Operation during Interim Status [ 40 CFR 270.71 ]
1. During the interim status period the facility shall not:
(i) Treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste not specified in Part A of the permit application;
(ii) Employ processes not specified in Part A of the permit application; or
(iii) Exceed the design capacities specified in Part A of the permit application.
2. Interim status standards. During interim status, owners or operators shall comply with the interim status standards at Rule 0400-12-01-.05.
(c) Changes during Interim Status [ 40 CFR 270.72 ]
1. Except as provided in part 2 of this subparagraph, the owner or operator of an interim status facility may make the following changes at the facility:
(i) Treatment, storage, or disposal of new hazardous wastes not previously identified in Part A of the permit application (and, in the case of newly listed or identified wastes, addition of the units being used to treat, store, or dispose of the hazardous wastes on the effective date of the listing or identification) if the owner or operator submits a revised Part A permit application prior to such treatment, storage, or disposal;
(ii) Increases in the design capacity of processes used at the facility if the owner or operator submits a revised Part A permit application prior to such a change (along with a justification explaining the need for the change) and the Commissioner approves the changes because:
(I) There is a lack of available treatment, storage, or disposal capacity at other hazardous waste management facilities, or
(II) The change is necessary to comply with a Federal, State, or local requirement.
(iii) Changes in the processes for the treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste or addition of processes if the owner or operator submits a revised Part A permit application prior to such change (along with a justification explaining the need for the change) and the Commissioner approves the change because:
(I) The change is necessary to prevent a threat to human health and the environment because of an emergency situation, or
(II) The change is necessary to comply with a Federal, State, or local requirement.
(iv) Changes in the ownership or operational control of a facility if the new owner or operator submits a revised Part A permit application no later than 90 days prior to the scheduled change. When a transfer of operational control of a facility occurs, the old owner or operator shall comply with the requirements of Rule 0400-12-01-.05(8) (Financial Requirements), until the new owner or operator has demonstrated to the Commissioner that he is complying with the requirements of that paragraph. The new owner or operator must demonstrate compliance with Rule 0400-12-01-.05(8) requirements within six months of the date of the change in ownership or operational control of the facility. Upon demonstration to the Commissioner by the new owner or operator of compliance with Rule 0400-12-01-.05(8), the Commissioner shall notify the old owner or operator in writing that he no longer needs to comply with Rule 0400-12-01-.05(8) as of the date of demonstration. All other interim status duties are transferred effective immediately upon the date of the change in ownership or operational control of the facility.
(v) Changes made in accordance with an interim status corrective action order issued by EPA under section 3008(h) or other Federal authority, by an authorized State under comparable State authority, or by a court in a judicial action brought by EPA or by an authorized State. Changes under this subpart are limited to the treatment, storage, or disposal of solid waste from releases that originate within the boundary of the facility.
(vi) Addition of newly regulated units for the treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste if the owner or operator submits a revised part A permit application on or before the date on which the unit becomes subject to the new requirements.
2. Except as specifically allowed under this part, changes listed under part 1 of this subparagraph may not be made if they amount to reconstruction of the hazardous waste management facility. Reconstruction occurs when the capital investment in the changes to the facility exceeds 50 percent of the capital cost of a comparable entirely new hazardous waste management facility. If all other requirements are met, the following changes may be made even if they amount to a reconstruction:
(i) Changes made solely for the purposes of complying with the requirements of subparagraph (10)(d) of Rule 0400-12-01-.05 for tanks and ancillary equipment.
(ii) If necessary to comply with Federal, State, or local requirements, changes to an existing unit, changes solely involving tanks or containers, or addition of replacement surface impoundments that satisfy the standards of federal RCRA section 3004(o).
(iii) Changes that are necessary to allow owners or operators to continue handling newly listed or identified hazardous wastes that have been treated, stored, or disposed of at the facility prior to the effective date of the rule establishing the new listing or identification.
(iv) Changes during closure of a facility or of a unit within a facility made in accordance with an approved closure plan.
(v) Changes necessary to comply with an interim status corrective action order issued by EPA under section 3008(h) or other Federal authority, by an authorized State under comparable State authority, or by a court in a judicial proceeding brought by EPA or an authorized State, provided that such changes are limited to the treatment, storage, or disposal of solid waste from releases that originate within the boundary of the facility.
(vi) Changes to treat or store, in tanks, containers, or containment buildings, hazardous wastes subject to land disposal restrictions imposed by Rule 0400-12-01-.10 or federal RCRA section 3004, provided that such changes are made solely for the purpose of complying with Rule 0400-12-01-.10 or federal RCRA section 3004.
(vii) Addition of newly regulated units under subpart 1(vi) of this subparagraph.
(viii) Changes necessary to comply with standards under 40 CFR part 63, Subpart EEE-National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants From Hazardous Waste Combustors.
(d) Termination of Interim Status [ 40 CFR 270.73 ] Interim status terminates:
1. When final administrative disposition of a permit application, except an application for a remedial action plan (RAP) under paragraph (11) of this rule, is made.
2. When interim status is terminated as provided in part (2)(b)6 of this rule.
3. For owners or operators of each land disposal facility which has been granted interim status prior to November 8, 1984, on November 8, 1985, unless:
(i) The owner or operator submits a Part B application for a permit for such facility prior to that date; and
(ii) The owner or operator certifies that such facility is in compliance with all applicable ground-water monitoring and financial responsibility requirements.
4. For owners or operators of each land disposal facility which is in existence on the effective date of statutory or regulatory amendments under the Act that render the facility subject to the requirement to have a permit and which is granted interim status, twelve months after the date on which the facility first becomes subject to such permit requirement unless the owner or operator of such facility:
(i) Submits a Part B application for a permit for such facility before the date 12 months after the date on which the facility first becomes subject to such permit requirement; and
(ii) Certifies that such facility is in compliance with all applicable ground water monitoring and financial responsibility requirements.
5. For owners or operators of any land disposal unit that is granted authority to operate under subparts (3)(c)1(i), (ii) or (iii) of this rule, on the date 12 months after the effective date of such requirement, unless the owner or operator certifies that such unit is in compliance with all applicable ground-water monitoring and financial responsibility requirements.
6. For owners and operators of each incinerator facility which has achieved interim status prior to November 8, 1984, interim status terminates on November 8, 1989, unless the owner or operator of the facility submits a Part B application for a permit for an incinerator facility by November 8, 1986.
7. For owners or operators of any facility (other than a land disposal or an incinerator facility) which has achieved interim status prior to November 8, 1984, interim status terminates on November 8, 1992, unless the owner or operator of the facility submits a Part B application for a permit for the facility by November 8, 1988.
8. For facilities where no hazardous waste remains after closure, when prior to the due date of his Part B application, the owner or operator voluntarily closes his facility in accordance with Rule 0400-12-01-.05(7)(b) through (f) and the Commissioner grants his request to withdraw his interim status and Part A application.
(4) Contents of Part A

(ix) A description of precautions to prevent accidental ignition or reaction of ignitable, reactive, or incompatible wastes as required to demonstrate compliance with Rule 0400-12-01-.06(2)(h) including documentation demonstrating compliance with Rule 0400-12-01-.06(2)(h) 3.
(x) Traffic pattern, estimated volume (number, types of vehicles) and control (for example, show turns across traffic lanes, and stacking lanes (if appropriate); describe access road surfacing and load bearing capacity; show traffic control signals).
(xi) Facility location information:
(I) In order to determine the applicability of the seismic standard [Rule 0400-12-01-.06(2)(i) 1] the owner or operator of a new facility must identify the political jurisdiction (e.g., county, township, or election district) in which the facility is proposed to be located.

(Comment: If the county or election district is not listed in Appendix VI of Rule 0400-12-01-.06, no further information is required to demonstrate compliance with Rule 0400-12-01-.06(2)(i) 1.)

(II) If the facility is proposed to be located in an area listed in Appendix VI of Rule 0400-12-01-.06, the owner or operator shall demonstrate compliance with the seismic standard. This demonstration may be made using either published geologic data or data obtained from field investigations carried out by the applicant. The information provided must be of such quality to be acceptable to geologists experienced in identifying and evaluating seismic activity. The information submitted must show that either:
I. No faults which have had displacement in Holocene time are present, or no lineations which suggest the presence of a fault (which have displacement in Holocene time) within 3,000 feet of a facility are present, based on data from:
A. Published geologic studies,
B. Aerial reconnaissance of the area within a five-mile radius from the facility,
C. An analysis of aerial photographs covering a 3,000 foot radius of the facility, and
D. If needed to clarify the above data, a reconnaissance based on walking portions of the area within 3,000 feet of the facility, or
II. If faults (to include lineations) which have had displacement in Holocene time are present within 3,000 feet of a facility, no faults pass within 200 feet of the portions of the facility where treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste will be conducted, based on data from a comprehensive geologic analysis of the site. Unless a site analysis is otherwise conclusive concerning the absence of faults within 200 feet of such portions of the facility data shall be obtained from a subsurface exploration (trenching) of the area within a distance no less than 200 feet from portions of the facility where treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste will be conducted. Such trenching shall be performed in a direction that is perpendicular to known faults (which have had displacement in Holocene time) passing within 3,000 feet of the portions of the facility where treatment, storage, or disposal of hazardous waste will be conducted. Such investigation shall document with supporting maps and other analyses, the location of faults found.

(Comment: The Guidance Manual for the Location Standards provides greater detail on the content of each type of seismic investigation and the appropriate conditions under which each approach or a combination of approaches would be used.)

(III) Owners and operators of all facilities shall provide an identification of whether the facility is located within a 100-year floodplain. This identification must indicate the source of data for such determination and include a copy of the relevant Federal Insurance Administration (FIA) flood map, if used, or the calculations and maps used where an FIA map is not available. Information shall also be provided identifying the 100-year flood level and any other special flooding factors (e.g., wave action) which must be considered in designing, constructing, operating, or maintaining the facility to withstand washout from a 100-year flood.

(Comment: Where maps for the National Flood Insurance Program produced by the Federal Insurance Administration (FIA) of the Federal Emergency Management Agency are available, they will normally be determinative of whether a facility is located within or outside of the 100-year floodplain. However, where the FIA map excludes an area (usually areas of the floodplain less than 200 feet in width), these areas must be considered and a determination made as to whether they are in the 100-year floodplain. Where FIA maps are not available for a proposed facility location, the owner or operator must use equivalent mapping techniques to determine whether the facility is within the 100-year floodplain, and if so located, what the 100-year flood elevation would be.)

(IV) Owners and operators of facilities located in the 100-year floodplain must provide the following information:
I. Engineering analysis to indicate the various hydrodynamic and hydrostatic forces expected to result at the site as consequence of a 100-year flood.
II. Structural or other engineering studies showing the design of operational units (e.g., tanks, incinerators) and flood protection devices (e.g., floodwalls, dikes) at the facility and how these will prevent washout.
III. If applicable, and in lieu of subitems I and II of this item, a detailed description of procedures to be followed to remove hazardous waste to safety before the facility is flooded, including:
A. Timing of such movement relative to flood levels, including estimated time to move the waste, to show that such movement can be completed before floodwaters reach the facility.
B. A description of the location(s) to which the waste will be moved and demonstration that those facilities will be eligible to receive hazardous waste in accordance with the regulations under Rules 0400-12-01-.05 through .07 and .09.
C. The planned procedures, equipment, and personnel to be used and the means to ensure that such resources will be available in time for use.
D. The potential for accidental discharges of the waste during movement.
(V) Existing facilities NOT in compliance with Rule 0400-12-01-.06(2)(i) 2 shall provide a plan showing how the facility will be brought into compliance and a schedule for compliance.

When assessing the need for an information repository, the Commissioner shall consider a variety of factors, including: the level of public interest; the type of facility; the presence of an existing repository; and the proximity to the nearest copy of the administrative record. If the Commissioner determines, at any time after submittal of a permit application, that there is a need for a repository, then the Commissioner shall notify the facility that it must establish and maintain an information repository. (See part (8)(a)13 of this rule for similar provisions relating to the information repository during the life of a permit.)
(III) The information repository shall contain all documents, reports, data, and information deemed necessary by the Commissioner to fulfill the purposes for which the repository is established. The Commissioner shall have the discretion to limit the contents of the repository.
(IV) The information repository shall be located and maintained at a site chosen by the facility. If the Commissioner finds the site unsuitable for the purposes and persons for which it was established, due to problems with the location, hours of availability, access, or other relevant considerations, then the Commissioner shall specify a more appropriate site.
(V) The Commissioner shall specify requirements for informing the public about the information repository. At a minimum, the Commissioner shall require the facility to provide a written notice about the information repository to all individuals on the facility mailing list.
(VI) The facility owner/operator shall be responsible for maintaining and updating the repository with appropriate information throughout a time period specified by the Commissioner. The Commissioner may close the repository at his or her discretion, based on the factors in item (II) of this subpart.
5. Attachments

In addition to the general public notice described in subpart 4(i) of this subparagraph, all persons identified in items 3(i)(I), (II), (III), and (IV) of this subparagraph shall be mailed a copy of the fact sheet (if any) and the draft permit (if any).

7. Property Rights

This permit does not convey any property rights of any sort, or any exclusive privilege.

8. Duty to Provide Information

The permittee shall furnish to the Commissioner, within a reasonable time, any relevant information which the Commissioner may request to determine whether cause exists for modifying, revoking and reissuing, or terminating this permit, or to determine compliance with this permit. The permittee shall also furnish to the Commissioner, upon request, copies of records required to be kept by this permit.

9. Inspection and Entry

The permittee shall allow the Commissioner, or an authorized representative, upon the presentation of credentials and other documents as may be required by law, to:

13. Information Repository

The Commissioner may require the permittee to establish and maintain an information repository at any time, based on the factors set forth in item (7)(e)4(v)(II) of this rule. The information repository will be governed by the provisions in items (7)(e)4(v)(III) through (VI) of this rule.

(b) Establishing permit conditions [ 40 CFR 270.32 ]
1. In addition to conditions required in all permits (subparagraph (a) of this paragraph), the Commissioner shall establish conditions, as required on a case-by-case basis, in permits under subparagraphs (c) (duration of permits), (d) (schedules of compliance), and (e) (monitoring).
2.
(i) Each permit shall include permit conditions necessary to achieve compliance with the Act and regulations, including each of the applicable requirements specified in Rules 0400-12-01-.06, .07, .09 and .10. In satisfying this provision, the Commissioner may incorporate applicable requirements of Rules 0400-12-01-.06, .07, .09 and .10 directly into the permit or establish other permit conditions that are based on these rules.
(ii) Each permit shall include such terms and conditions as the Commissioner determines necessary to protect human health and the environment.
(iii) If, as the result of an assessment(s) or other information, the Commissioner determines that conditions are necessary in addition to those required under 40 CFR 63 Subpart EEE, Rule 0400-12-01-.06 or Rule 0400-12-01-.09 to ensure protection of human health and the environment, he shall include those terms and conditions in a RCRA permit for a hazardous waste combustion unit.
3. An applicable requirement is a State statutory or regulatory requirement which takes effect prior to final administrative disposition of a permit. Subparagraph (7)(h) of this rule (reopening of the public comment period) provides a means for reopening permit proceedings at the discretion of the Commissioner when applicable new requirements become effective during the permitting process and are of sufficient magnitude to make additional proceedings desirable. An applicable requirement is also any requirement which takes effect prior to the modification or revocation and reissuance of a permit, to the extent allowed in paragraph (9) of this rule.
4. New or reissued permits, and to the extent allowed under paragraph (9) of this rule, modified or revoked and reissued permits, shall incorporate each of the applicable requirements referenced in this subparagraph and in subparagraph (e) of this paragraph.
5. Incorporation

All permit conditions shall be incorporated either expressly or by reference. If incorporated by reference, a specific citation to the applicable regulations or requirements must be given in the permit.

(c) Duration of Permits [ 40 CFR 270.50 ]
1. Permits shall be effective for a fixed term not to exceed ten (10) years or the expected operating life of new facilities or the expected remaining life of existing facilities, whichever is less.
2. The Commissioner may issue any permit for a duration that is less than the full allowable term under part 1 of this subparagraph.
3. Except as provided in subparagraph (9)(a) of this rule, the term of a permit shall not be extended by modification beyond the maximum duration specified in part 1 of this subparagraph.
4. Each permit for a land disposal facility shall be reviewed by the Commissioner five years after the date of permit issuance or reissuance and shall be modified as necessary, as provided in item (9)(c)3(xiii) of this rule.
(d) Schedules of Compliance [ 40 CFR 270.33 ]
1. The permit may, when appropriate, specify a schedule of compliance leading to compliance with the Act and regulations.
(i) Time for compliance

Any schedules of compliance under this subparagraph shall require compliance as soon as possible.

(ii) Interim dates

Except as provided in item 2(i)(II) of this subparagraph, if a permit establishes a schedule of compliance which exceeds 1 year from the date of permit issuance, the schedule shall set forth interim requirements and the dates for their achievement.

(I) The time between interim dates shall not exceed 1 year.
(II) If the time necessary for completion of any interim requirement is more than 1 year and is not readily divisible into stages for completion, the permit shall specify interim dates for the submission of reports of progress toward completion of the interim requirements and indicate a projected completion date.
(iii) Reporting

The permit shall be written to require that no later than 14 days following each interim date and the final date of compliance, the permittee shall notify the Commissioner in writing, of its compliance or noncompliance with the interim or final requirements.

2. Alternative schedules of compliance

A permit applicant or permittee may cease conducting regulated activities (by receiving a terminal volume of hazardous waste and, for treatment and storage HWM facilities, closing pursuant to applicable requirements; and, for disposal HWM facilities, closing and conducting post-closure care pursuant to applicable requirements) rather than continue to operate and meet permit requirements as follows:

(i) If the permittee decides to cease conducting regulated activities at a given time within the term of a permit which has already been issued:
(I) The permit may be modified to contain a new or additional schedule leading to timely cessation of activities; or
(II) The permittee shall cease conducting permitted activities before noncompliance with any interim or final compliance schedule requirement already specified in the permit.
(ii) If the decision to cease conducting regulated activities is made before issuance of a permit whose term will include the termination date, the permit shall contain a schedule leading to termination which will ensure timely compliance with applicable requirements.
(iii) If the permittee is undecided whether to cease conducting regulated activities, the Commissioner may issue or modify a permit to contain two schedules as follows:
(I) Both schedules shall contain an identical interim deadline requiring a final decision on whether to cease conducting regulated activities no later than a date which ensures sufficient time to comply with applicable requirements in a timely manner if the decision is to continue conducting regulated activities;
(II) One schedule shall lead to timely compliance with applicable requirements;
(III) The second schedule shall lead to cessation of regulated activities by a date which will ensure timely compliance with applicable requirements;
(IV) Each permit containing two schedules shall include a requirement that after the permittee has made a final decision under item (I) of this subpart it shall follow the schedule leading to compliance if the decision is to continue conducting regulated activities, and follow the schedule leading to termination if the decision is to cease conducting regulated activities.
(iv) The applicant's or permittee's decision to cease conducting regulated activities shall be evidenced by a firm public commitment satisfactory to the Commissioner, such as resolution of the board of directors of a corporation.
(e) Requirements for Recording and Reporting of Monitoring Results [ 40 CFR 270.31 ]

All permits shall specify:

1. Requirements concerning the proper use, maintenance, and installation, when appropriate, of monitoring equipment or methods (including biological monitoring methods when appropriate);
2. Required monitoring including type, intervals, and frequency sufficient to yield data which are representative of the monitored activity including, when appropriate, continuous monitoring;

(III) Are promulgated under Rule 0400-12-01-.06 regarding leak detection systems for new and replacement surface impoundment, waste pile, and landfill units, and lateral expansions of surface impoundment, waste pile, and landfill units. The leak detection system requirements include double liners, CQA programs, monitoring, action leakage rates, and response action plans, and will be implemented through the procedures of part (9)(c)5 of this rule Class 1 permit modifications; or
(IV) Are promulgated under Rules 0400-12-01-.05(27), (28), or (29) limiting air emissions.
(ii) A permit may be modified, revoked and revised, or terminated during its term for cause as set forth in parts (9)(c)3, 4 and 6 and part (9)(d)3 of this rule, or the permit may be modified upon the request of the permittee as set forth in part (9)(c)5 of this rule.
2. The issuance of a permit does not convey any property rights of any sort, or any exclusive privilege.
3. The issuance of a permit does not authorize any injury to persons or property or invasion of other private rights, or any infringement of State or local law or regulations.

(b) Transfer of Permits [ 40 CFR 270.40 ]
1. A permit may be transferred by the permittee to a new owner or operator only if the permit has been modified or revoked and reissued (under part 3 of this subparagraph or subparagraph (c) of this paragraph) to identify the new permittee and incorporate such other requirements (e.g., financial requirements) as may be necessary under the Act or this rule.
2.
(i) For the purpose of this Chapter, the "owner or operator" of a treatment, storage or disposal facility has the ultimate responsibility for the operation of the facility, including the final authority to make or control operational decisions and legal responsibility for the business management. A "change of ownership" occurs whenever this ultimate authority to control the activities and the policies of the facility is transferred to another individual, group, or legal entity.
(ii) A "change of ownership" also occurs whenever there is a change in the legal form under which the controlling entity is organized.
(iii) Transactions constituting a change of ownership include, but are not limited to, the following:

(c) Modification or Revocation and Reissuance of Permits [ 40 CFR 270.41 & 270.42]
1. General [ 40 CFR 270.41 ]

Permits may be modified or revoked and reissued only for the reasons shown in parts 3, 4, or 5 of this subparagraph and only according to the procedures set forth in part 2 of this subparagraph. This process may be initiated either by the Commissioner or at the request of the permittee. All such requests from the permittee shall be in writing and shall contain the reasons for the request.

2. Procedures [ 40 CFR 270.41 ]
(i) Except as provided in subpart (ii) of this part, when the Commissioner receives any information (for example, complaints, inspection findings, monitoring data, required reports, other information submitted by the permittee as required in the permit (see subparagraph (8)(a) of this rule)), or receives a request for modification or revocation and reissuance under this paragraph or conducts a review of the permit file, he or she may determine whether one or more of the causes listed in parts 3 and 4 of this subparagraph for modification or revocation and reissuance or both exist. If cause exists, the Commissioner may modify or revoke and reissue the permit accordingly, subject to the limitations of part 6 of this subparagraph, and may request an updated application if necessary. When a permit is modified, only the conditions subject to modification are reopened when a new draft permit is prepared. All other aspects of the existing permit shall remain in effect for the duration of the unmodified permit. If a permit is revoked and reissued, the entire permit is reopened just as if the permit had expired and was being reissued. During any revocation and reissuance proceeding, the permittee shall comply with all conditions of the existing permit until a new final permit is issued. If cause does not exist under this subparagraph, the Commissioner shall not modify or revoke and reissue the permit, except on request of the permittee. If a permit modification is requested by the permittee, the Commissioner shall approve or deny the request according to the procedures of part 5 of this subparagraph. Otherwise, a draft permit must be prepared under subparagraph (7)(c) of this rule incorporating the proposed changes. This draft permit shall be processed as set forth in paragraph (7) of this rule.

(i) There are changes to the permitted facility which occurred after permit issuance which justify the application of permit conditions that are different or absent in the existing permit.
(ii) The Commissioner has received information which was not available at the time of permit issuance (other than revised regulations, guidance, or test methods) and would have justified the application of different permit conditions at the time of issuance.
(iii) The standards or regulations on which the permit was based have been changed by statute, through promulgation of new or amended standards or regulations, or by judicial decision after the permit was issued.
(iv) The Commissioner determines that good cause exists for modification of a compliance schedule, such as an act of God, strike, flood, or materials shortage or other events over which the permittee has little or no control and for which there is no reasonably available remedy.
(v) Modification of a closure plan or post-closure plan is required under part (7)(c) 3 or (7)(i)4 of Rule 0400-12-01-.06.
(vi) After the Commissioner receives the notification of expected closure under Rule 0400-12-01-.06(7)(d), when the Commissioner determines that existing permit conditions granting extension of the 90 or 180 day periods under that rule, modification of the 30-year post-closure period under Rule 0400-12-01-.06(7)(h) 1, continuation of security requirements under Rule 0400-12-01-.06(7)(h) 2, or permission to disturb the integrity of the containment system under Rule 0400-12-01-.06(7)(h) 3 are unwarranted.

(viii) To include a detection monitoring program meeting the requirements of Rule 0400-12-01-.06(6)(i), when the owner or operator has been conducting a compliance monitoring program under Rule 0400-12-01-.06(6)(j) or a corrective action program under Rule 0400-12-01-.06(6)(k) and the compliance period ends before the end of the post-closure care period for the unit.
(ix) When a permit requires a compliance monitoring program under Rule 0400-12-01-.06(6)(j), but monitoring data collected prior to permit issuance indicate that the facility is exceeding the ground-water protection standard.
(x) To include conditions applicable to units at a facility that were not previously included in the facility's permit.
(xi) When a land treatment unit is not achieving complete treatment of hazardous constituents under its current permit conditions.
(xii) The permittee has filed a request under Rule 0400-12-01-.06(8)(p) 4 for a variance to the level of financial responsibility or the Commissioner demonstrates under Rule 0400-12-01-.06(8)(p) 5 that an upward adjustment of the level of financial responsibility is required.

FOOTNOTE: 2Appendix 1 is not limited to Permit Modification only but includes also modification of all documentation submitted to the Department.

(11) Remedial Action Plans (RAPs) [ 40 CFR 270 Subpart H]

(Note: Why is this paragraph written in a special format§ [ 40 CFR 270.79 ]

This paragraph is written in a special format to make it easier to understand the regulatory requirements. Like other regulations, this establishes enforceable legal requirements. For this Paragraph, "I" and "you" refer to the owner/operator.)

(a) General Information
1. What is a RAP§ [ 40 CFR 270.80 ]
(i) A RAP is a special form of Hazardous Waste permit that you, as an owner or operator, may obtain, instead of a permit issued under paragraphs (1), (2) and (4) through (9) of this rule, to authorize you to treat, store, or dispose of hazardous remediation waste (as defined in Rule 0400-12-01-.01(2)(a) ) at a remediation waste management site. A RAP may only be issued for the area of contamination where the remediation wastes to be managed under the RAP originated, or areas in close proximity to the contaminated area, except as allowed in limited circumstances under part (f)1 of this paragraph.
(ii) The requirements in paragraphs (1), (2) and (4) through (9) of this rule do not apply to RAPs unless those requirements for traditional Hazardous Waste permits are specifically required under parts (a)1 through (f)1 of this paragraph. The definitions in Rule 0400-12-01-.01(2)(a) apply to RAPs.
(iii) Notwithstanding any other provision of this rule, any document that meets the requirements in this part constitutes a Hazardous waste permit under TCA § 68-212-108.
(iv) A RAP may be:
(I) A stand-alone document that includes only the information and conditions required by this paragraph; or
(II) Part (or parts) of another document that includes information and/or conditions for other activities at the remediation waste management site, in addition to the information and conditions required by this paragraph.
(v) If you are treating, storing, or disposing of hazardous remediation wastes as part of a cleanup compelled by Federal or State cleanup authorities, your RAP does not affect your obligations under those authorities in any way.
(vi) If you receive a RAP at a facility operating under interim status, the RAP does not terminate your interim status.
2. - 5. (RESERVED) [ 40 CFR 270.81-270.84 ]
6. When do I need a RAP§ [ 40 CFR 270.85 ]
(i) Whenever you treat, store, or dispose of hazardous remediation wastes in a manner that requires a Hazardous Waste permit under subparagraph (1)(b) of this rule, you must either obtain:
(I) A Hazardous Waste permit according to paragraphs (1), (2) and (4) through (9) of this rule; or
(II) A RAP according to this paragraph.
(ii) Treatment units that use combustion of hazardous remediation wastes at a remediation waste management site are not eligible for RAPs under this paragraph.
(iii) You may obtain a RAP for managing hazardous remediation waste at an already permitted facility. You must have these RAPs approved as a modification to your existing permit according to the requirements of subparagraph (9)(c) of this rule instead of the requirements in this paragraph. When you submit an application for such a modification, however, the information requirements in subitems (9)(c)5(i)(I)I, (9)(c)5(ii)(I)(IV), and (9)(c)5(iii)(I)IV of this rule do not apply; instead, you must submit the information required under part (b)16 of this paragraph. When your permit is modified the RAP becomes part of the permit. Therefore when your permit (including the RAP portion) is modified, revoked and reissued, terminated or when it expires, it will be modified according to the applicable requirements in subparagraph (9)(b) and (c) of this rule, revoked and reissued according to the applicable requirements in parts (9)(c)1 through 4, 6 and subparagraph (9)(d) of this rule, terminated according to the applicable requirements in subparagraph (9)(d) of this rule, and expire according to the applicable requirements in subparagraphs (8)(c) and (9)(a) of this rule.
7. -10. (RESERVED)
11. Does my RAP grant me any rights or relieve me of any obligations§ [ 40 CFR 270.90 ]

The provisions of subparagraph (8)(g) of this rule apply to RAPs.

(Note: The provisions of subparagraph (8)(g)1 of this rule provide you assurance that, as long as you comply with your RAP, the Commissioner will consider you in compliance with Hazardous Waste Regulations, and will not take enforcement actions against you. However, you should be aware of four exceptions to this provision that are listed in subparagraph (8)(g) of this rule.)

(b) Applying for a RAP
1. How do I apply for a RAP§ [ 40 CFR 270.95 ]

To apply for a RAP, you must complete an application, sign it, and submit it to the Director according to the requirements in this paragraph.

2. -5. (RESERVED)
6. How are time periods in the requirements in this paragraph and my RAP computed§ [ 40 CFR 270.215 ]
(i) Any time period scheduled to begin on the occurrence of an act or event must begin on the day after the act or event. (For example, if your RAP specifies that you must close a staging pile within 180 days after the operating term for that staging pile expires, and the operating term expires on June 1, then June 2 counts as day one of your 180 days, and you would have to complete closure by November 28.)
(ii) Any time period scheduled to begin before the occurrence of an act or event must be computed so that the period ends on the day before the act or event. (For example, if you are transferring ownership or operational control of your site, and wish to transfer your RAP, the new owner or operator must submit a revised RAP application no later than 90 days before the scheduled change. Therefore, if you plan to change ownership on January 1, the new owner/operator must submit the revised RAP application no later than October 3, so that the 90th day would be December 31.)
(iii) If the final day of any time period falls on a weekend or legal holiday, the time period must be extended to the next working day. (For example, if you wish to appeal the Commissioner's decision to modify your RAP, then you must petition the Board within 30 days after the Commissioner has issued the final RAP decision. If the 30th day falls on Sunday, then you may submit your appeal by the Monday after. If the 30th day falls on July 4th, then you may submit your appeal by July 5th.)
(iv) Whenever a party or interested person has the right to or is required to act within a prescribed period after the service of notice or other paper upon him by mail, 3 days must be added to the prescribed term. (For example, if you wish to appeal the Commissioner's decision to modify your RAP, then you must petition the Environmental Appeals Board within 30 days after the Commissioner has issued the final RAP decision. However, if the Commissioner notifies you of his decision by mail, then you may have 33 days to petition the Board.)
7. -10. (RESERVED)
11. How may I transfer my RAP to a new owner or operator§ [ 40 CFR 270.220 ]
(i) If you wish to transfer your RAP to a new owner or operator, you must follow the requirements specified in your RAP for RAP modification to identify the new owner or operator, and incorporate any other necessary requirements. These modifications do not constitute "significant" modifications for purposes of part (d)1 of this paragraph. The new owner/operator must submit a revised RAP application no later than 90 days before the scheduled change along with a written agreement containing a specific date for transfer of RAP responsibility between you and the new permittees.
(ii) When a transfer of ownership or operational control occurs, you as the old owner or operator must comply with the applicable requirements in Rule 0400-12-01-.06(8), (Financial Requirements), until the new owner or operator has demonstrated that he is complying with the requirements in that paragraph. The new owner or operator must demonstrate compliance with Rule 0400-12-01-.06(8) within six months of the date of the change in ownership or operational control of the facility or remediation waste management site. When the new owner/operator demonstrates compliance with Rule 0400-12-01-.06(8) to the Commissioner, the Commissioner will notify you that you no longer need to comply with Rule 0400-12-01-.06(8), as of the date of demonstration.

1. May I perform remediation waste management activities under a RAP at a location removed from the area where the remediation wastes originated§ [ 40 CFR 270.230 ]
(i) You may request a RAP for remediation waste management activities at a location removed from the area where the remediation wastes originated if you believe such a location would be more protective than the contaminated area or areas in close proximity.
(ii) If the Commissioner determines that an alternative location, removed from the area where the remediation waste originated, is more protective than managing remediation waste at the area of contamination or areas in close proximity, then the Commissioner may approve a RAP for this alternative location.
(iii) You must request the RAP, and the Commissioner will approve or deny the RAP, according to the procedures and requirements in this paragraph.
(iv) A RAP for an alternative location must also meet the following requirements, which the Commissioner must include in the RAP for such locations:
(I) The RAP for the alternative location must be issued to the person responsible for the cleanup from which the remediation wastes originated;
(II) The RAP is subject to the expanded public participation requirements in subparagraph (8)(b), (d), and (e) of this rule;
(III) The RAP is subject to the public notice requirements in part (7)(e)3 of this rule;
(IV) The site permitted in the RAP may not be located within 61 meters or 200 feet of a fault which has had displacement in the Holocene time (you must demonstrate compliance with this standard through the requirements in subpart (5)(a)1(xi) of this rule) (See definitions of terms in Rule 0400-12-01-.06(2)(i) 1);

(Note: Sites located in political jurisdictions other than those listed in Appendix VI of Rule 0400-12-01-.06, are assumed to be in compliance with this requirement.

(v) These alternative locations are remediation waste management sites, and retain the following benefits of remediation waste management sites:
(I) Exclusion from facility-wide corrective action under Rule 0400-12-01-.06(6)(l); and
(II) Application of Rule 0400-12-01-.06(1)(b) 9 in lieu of paragraphs (2), (3) and (4) of Rule 0400-12-01-.06.

B. Retain or add these permit requirements to the permit to apply only when the facility is operating under its startup, shutdown, and malfunction plan.
II. Changes that may significantly increase emissions
A. You must notify the Commissioner in writing of changes to the startup, shutdown, and malfunction plan or changes to the design of the source that may significantly increase emissions of toxic compounds from startup, shutdown, or malfunction events, including releases from emergency safety vents. You must notify the Commissioner of such changes within five days of making such changes. You must identify in the notification recommended revisions to permit conditions necessary as a result of the changes to ensure that emissions of toxic compounds are minimized during these events.
B. The Commissioner may revise permit conditions as a result of these changes to ensure that emissions of toxic compounds are minimized during startup, shutdown, or malfunction events, including releases from emergency safety vents either:
(A) Upon permit renewal; or
(B) If warranted by modifying the permit under part (9)(c)3 or part (9)(c)5 of this rule.
