RULE §116.605Standard Permit Amendment and Revocation

(a) A standard permit remains in effect until amended or revoked by the commission.

(b) After notice and comment as provided by subsection (c) of this section and §116.603(b)-(f) of this title (relating to Public Participation in Issuance of Standard Permits), a standard permit may be amended or revoked by the commission.

(c) The commission will publish notice of its intent to amend or revoke a standard permit in a daily or weekly newspaper of general circulation in the area affected by the activity that is the subject of the standard permit. If the standard permit has statewide applicability, then the requirement for newspaper notice shall be accomplished by publishing notice in the daily newspaper of largest general circulation within each of the following major metropolitan areas: Austin, Dallas, and Houston. The commission will also provide written notice to registrants and any persons requesting to be on a mailing list concerning a specific standard permit. In both cases, the commission will publish notice in the Texas Register.

(d) The commission may, through amendment of a standard permit, add or delete requirements or limitations to the permit.

  (1) To remain authorized under the standard permit, a facility shall comply with an amendment to the standard permit on the later of either the deadline the commission provides in the amendment or the date the facility's registration to use the standard permit is required to be renewed. The commission may not require compliance with an amended standard permit within 24 months of its amendment unless it is necessary to protect public health.

  (2) Before the date the facility is required to comply with the amendment, the standard permit, as it read before the amendment, applies to the facility.

  (3) The commission will consider the following when determining whether to amend or revoke a standard permit:

    (A) whether a condition of air pollution exists;

    (B) the applicability of other state or federal standards that apply or will apply to the types of facilities covered by the standard permit;

    (C) requests from the regulated community or the public to amend or revoke a standard permit consistent with the requirements of the TCAA; and

    (D) whether the standard permit requires best available control technology.

(e) The commission may require, upon issuance of an amended standard permit, or on a date otherwise provided, the owner or operator of a facility to submit a registration to use the amended standard permit in accordance with the requirements of §116.611 of this title (relating to Registration to Use a Standard Permit).

(f) If the commission revokes a standard permit, it will provide written notice to affected registrants prior to the revocation of the standard permit. The notice will advise registrants that they must apply for a permit under this chapter or qualify for an authorization under Chapter 106 of this title (relating to Exemptions from Permitting).

(g) The issuance, amendment, or revocation of a standard permit or the issuance, renewal, or revocation of a registration to use a standard permit is not subject to Texas Government Code, Chapter 2001.
