Rule 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) 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.

(1) The director 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 (form 8700-23, and Ohio EPA form 9027, Ohio EPA form 9028, and Ohio EPA form 9029, and any other forms required by the director, the "Part A" permit application) is complete when the director receives an application form and any supplemental information which are completed to the director's satisfaction. 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.
