3745-34-22 Transfer of permits.

(A) Transfers by modification. Except as provided in paragraph (B) of this rule, 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 paragraph (B)(2) of rule 3745-34-23 of the Administrative Code), or a minor modification made under paragraph (D) of rule 3745-34-25 of the Administrative Code, to identify the new permittee and incorporate such other requirements as may be necessary under Chapter 6111. of the Revised Code.

(B) Automatic transfers. As an alternative to transfers under paragraph (A) of this rule, any UIC permit for a well not injecting hazardous waste may be automatically transferred to a new permittee if:

(1) The current permittee notifies the director at least thirty days in advance of the proposed transfer date referred to in paragraph (B)(2) of this rule;

(2) The notice includes a written agreement between the existing and new permittees containing a specific date for transfer or permit responsibility, coverage, and liability between them, and the notice demonstrates that the financial responsibility requirements of paragraph (B)(6) of rule 3745-34-27 of the Administrative Code will be met by the new permittee; and

(3) The director does not notify the existing permittee and the proposed new permittee of his or her intent to modify or revoke and reissue the permit. A modification under this paragraph may also be a minor modification under rule 3745-34-25 of the Administrative Code. If this notice is not received, the transfer is effective on the date specified in the agreement mentioned in paragraph (B)(2) of this rule.
