You will have different responsibilities depending upon your relationship with the facility.

(A) What are my responsibilities if I am a fiduciary, an indentured trustee for debt securities, or a receiver and I have taken actual or direct control of the facility? You are not required to comply with this rule. Instead, you are an operator and must comply with rule 3745-352-20 of the Administrative Code.

(B) What are my responsibilities if I am a fiduciary, an indentured trustee for debt securities, or a receiver who has not taken actual or direct control of the facility, or a holder of a first mortgage?

(1) If you are a holder of a first mortgage on real property or a receiver under division (F) of section 3752.11 of the Revised Code appointed by the court to succeed to the obligations of the holder of the first mortgage at a reporting facility that has been abandoned by the owner and at which all regulated operations have been temporarily or permanently discontinued, you must comply with table 1 of this rule to determine your responsibilities.

(2) If you are a fiduciary for a reporting facility at which all regulated operations have been permanently ceased and the operator has failed to comply with rule 3745-352-30 of the Administrative Code, you must comply with table 2 of this rule to determine your responsibilities.

(3) If you are an indentured trustee for debt securities or certificates of participation in any such debt securities and you have foreclosed on your interest at a reporting facility where all regulated operations have been permanently ceased and the operator has failed to comply with rule 3745-352-30 of the Administrative Code, you must comply with table 3 of this rule to determine your responsibilities.

(4) If you are a receiver appointed under Chapter 2735. of the Revised Code, you must comply with table 4 of this rule to determine your responsibilities.

(C) What am I required to do if I am a holder of a first mortgage or a fiduciary and I will no longer maintain security and warnings signs? Except as provided in table 1 and table 2 of this rule, you must maintain security and warning signs as required in rule 3745-352-30 of the Administrative Code. Within thirty days before you cease to maintain security and warning signs, you must submit a notice of your intentions to the director, the local emergency planning committee, and the local fire department using form EPA 0330.
