Section 10410 - Process for Submittal, Review, and Approval of a Facility Compliance Plan (California Code of Regulations)

§ 10410. Process for Submittal, Review, and Approval of a Facility Compliance Plan

(a) Notification

(1) A Plan Applicant shall provide written notice to the Zone Administrator and each participating permitting authority within the Zone of its intent to substitute a facility compliance plan for individual environmental permits. The notice shall provide a description of the activities to be conducted under the terms of a facility compliance plan.

(2) The Zone Administrator shall develop a form or checklist to be used by the Plan Applicant to augment the information provided in the notice. The contents of the form or checklist shall be used to allow the participating permitting authorities to review the nature of the proposed facility operation to determine if the activity falls under their jurisdiction.

(3) A notice of intent to submit a proposed facility compliance plan shall be provided to the Zone Administrator and each participating permitting authority not less than 60 days prior to submittal of the plan.

(4)

(A) The Zone Administrator shall, during the public notice period preceding submittal of a proposed facility compliance plan for consideration, facilitate discussions with the Plan Applicant and the individual permitting authorities to clarify the technical information required in a complete and adequate facility compliance plan.

(B) At any time subsequent to the sixty-day notification period, a Plan Applicant may submit a proposed facility compliance plan to the Zone Administrator.

(b) Where feasible and practicable, and at the request of the Zone Administrator, California Environmental Protection Agency Permit Assistance Centers may participate in the review of a proposed Facility Compliance Plan.

(c) The Plan Applicant shall submit a copy of a proposed facility compliance plan concurrently to the Zone Administrator and to each permitting authority participating in the zone from whom a determination of completeness and adequacy is required.

(d)

(1) The permitting authorities reviewing the proposed facility compliance plan shall transmit their determination whether the proposed plan is complete and adequate to the Plan Applicant and Zone Administrator within 45 days of receipt of the plan.

(2) The Zone Administrator shall, within five (5) days of receiving all required determinations of completeness and adequacy from the appropriate permitting authorities, transmit the consolidated determination to the Secretary for Environmental Protection.

(e) If the proposed facility compliance plan is determined not to be complete and adequate, the permitting authority shall, not later than 45 calendar days after receipt of a proposed facility compliance plan, specify in writing to the applicant and Zone Administrator those parts of the plan that are deficient and shall list and provide a thorough description of the information that must be provided to allow a determination of completeness and adequacy to be made.

(f) The Plan Applicant shall resubmit the proposed facility compliance plan incorporating the information required by the permitting authorities to render the plan complete and adequate. The permitting authorities shall, within 30 days of receipt of the resubmitted plan, determine in writing whether the proposed plan is complete and adequate. The permitting authorities shall transmit their determination to the Zone Administrator and the Plan Applicant. If the determination of completeness and adequacy from any individual permitting authority is not provided within the 30-day period, the portion of the proposed facility compliance plan applicable to the permitting authority that did not meet that determination deadline, shall be deemed to be complete and adequate.

(g) Each permitting authority shall identify, in the application for designation of a Permit Consolidation Zone, a process for the Plan Applicant to appeal a determination of incompleteness or inadequacy. This process shall be the permitting authority's existing appeal process, or, in the event the existing process is not in conformance with the time frames provided by these regulations, a separate process adopted by the permitting authority's governing body.

(h) The permitting authority shall make a final determination of an appeal by a Plan Applicant within 60 calendar days after receipt of the Plan Applicant's written appeal. If the decision on appeal is not made within the 60-day period that portion of the facility compliance plan subject to the appeal, shall be deemed to be complete and adequate.

(i) All applicable individual environmental permits for the project shall be deemed to have been issued upon the filing of a complete and adequate facility compliance plan with the Secretary for Environmental Protection.

(j) The Plan Applicant and any permitting authority may mutually agree to waive the timeframes provided in this section or establish a mutually agreed upon substitute timeframe.
