RULE §330.71Duration and Limits of Registrations and Permits

(a) The executive director shall, after review of any application for registration, approve or deny an application in whole or in part. This action shall be based on whether the application meets the requirements of this chapter.

(b) Except as provided in subsection (f) of this section for demonstration facilities, a registration or permit is normally issued for the life of the facility but may be revoked, amended, or modified at any time if the operating conditions do not meet the minimum standards set forth in this chapter or for any other good cause.

(c) When deemed appropriate a registration or permit may be issued for a specific period of time. When an owner or operator has made timely and sufficient application for the renewal of a registration or permit, the existing registration or permit does not expire until the application has been finally determined by the commission.

(d) A registration or permit is issued to a specific person (see definition of person contained in §3.2 of this title (relating to Definitions)) and may not be transferred from one person to another without complying with the transfer approval requirements of the commission.

(e) Except for transporters and mobile treatment units, a registration or permit is attached to the realty to which it pertains and may not be transferred from one facility to another.

(f) Demonstration projects for liquid waste processing facilities shall be limited to a two-year period. Re-registration of a demonstration facility may be considered only if the new method being demonstrated is not widely used in Texas.

(g) If a registered facility does not commence physical construction within two years of issuance of a registration or within two years of the conclusion of the appeals process, whichever is longer, the registration shall automatically terminate and will no longer be effective.

(h) If a registered mobile liquid waste processing unit does not begin operation within two years of obtaining its registration, the registration shall terminate and no longer be effective.

(i) A registration shall be considered to be a permit for purposes of revocation and denial under Chapter 305 of this title (relating to Consolidated Permits).

(j) The owner or operator may file with the chief clerk a motion to overturn the executive director's denial of a registration under §50.139 of this title (relating to Motion to Overturn Executive Director's Decision).
