RULE §281.22Referral to Commission

(a) When administrative and technical review has been completed, the application shall be forwarded to the commission for filing and setting. For the purpose of providing adequate notice, the executive director shall include a recommendation to the commission of the area wherein the application, if granted, would have a potential impact, and a mailing list of persons who may be affected. For applications for radioactive material licenses, upon completion of technical review, the executive director shall forward the draft license, technical summary, compliance summary, and, if applicable, the environmental analysis to the chief clerk for public notice, or shall forward a recommendation to deny the license.

(b) For applications involving hazardous waste or an injection well, the commission shall not issue a permit before receiving a complete application for a permit. For underground injection wells, an application for a permit is complete when the executive director receives an application form and any supplemental information which are completed to his or her satisfaction. For underground injection wells, the completeness of any application for a permit shall be judged independently of the status of any other permit application or permit for the same facility or activity. However, a facility may be eligible for a permit by rule or may be subject to an emergency order.

(c) After an application under this section for a permit authorizing proposed commercial hazardous waste management units providing new or previously unpermitted capacity is determined by the executive director to be technically complete, the executive director shall prepare a summary of the most recent information on the need for the proposed processing or disposal technology, including the following information:

  (1) estimated current statewide capacity for the technology;

  (2) projected estimated statewide demand from the most recent Needs Assessment, as defined under §281.31 of this title (relating to Definitions);

  (3) regional factors documented by the applicant if a regional need has been demonstrated; and

  (4) any other waste management information deemed relevant by the executive director.
