3745-50-41 Application for a permit.

(A) Permit application. 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 director as described in Chapter 3745-50 of the Administrative Code. Persons currently authorized with a permit by rule under paragraph (C) of rule 3745-50-40 of the Administrative Code shall submit to the director a "Part B" application for a hazardous waste facility installation and operation permit for the facility within one hundred eighty days after the director requests the application or upon a later date if the owner or operator of the facility demonstrates to the director good cause for the late submittal. Persons covered by paragraph (A) of rule 3745-50-46 of the Administrative Code need not apply. Procedures for applications, issuance, and administration of emergency permits are in rule 3745-50-57 of the Administrative Code.

(B) Who applies? When a facility or activity is owned by one person but is operated by another person, the operator and owner shall sign the permit application.

An application for a permit is complete notwithstanding the failure of the owner or operator to submit the exposure information described in paragraph (E) of rule 3745-50-40 of the Administrative Code. The director may deny a permit for the active life of a hazardous wate management facility or unit before receiving a complete application for the permit.
