(c) Persons who apply to the commission for registration and receive a registration shall maintain a copy of the registration authorization, as annotated by the executive director with an assigned registration number, at their designated place of business and in each vehicle operated under that registration. This registration shall be produced and shown to the operator of the facility receiving the waste at the time of delivery.

(d) The expiration date of the registration shall be August 31 of the year in which it expires. Registrations are required to be renewed biennially prior to the expiration date. Application for renewal shall be submitted by June 15 of the year in which the registration expires. Any registrant shall notify the executive director in writing within 15 days of cessation of operation and request that the registration be cancelled, and request all forms and reports needed to report waste hauled during the period of registration.

(e) A new registration application is required to be submitted within 15 days of the following, whereupon the old registration number will be voided and the old registration cancelled:

  (1) change in ownership of the operating entity; or

  (2) determination by the executive director that operations or management methods are no longer adequately described by the existing registration; or

(g) The commission may revoke or void a registration for cause as provided in §312.150 of this title (relating to Penalties). An opportunity for a formal hearing on the revocation may be requested by the registrant within 20 days after a Notice of Revocation has been sent from the executive director to the last known address of the registrant. If the registration is revoked or voided, a transporter shall not continue to transport the wastes regulated under this subchapter.

(h) An applicant owing delinquent fees or an applicant who has failed to submit required reports will not be eligible to renew their registration to transport waste until all fees and reports are submitted and accepted by the executive director.

(j) The commission will issue, beginning February 1, 1995, authorization stickers for all registered motor transport vehicles. The commission will charge a fee of $10 per motor transport vehicle.
