9VAC20-170-280. Applicability

A. This part applies to all persons who own or operate a vessel transporting solid wastes or regulated medical wastes for the purposes of commercial carriage as cargo on the navigable waters of the Commonwealth, to the extent allowable under state law, unless otherwise exempt.

B. For purposes of this part, when a vessel is chartered by demise, the demise charterer rather than the title owner is the owner of the chartered vessel.

C. Owners or operators of such vessels who are federal or state government entities whose debts and liabilities are the debts or liabilities of the United States or the Commonwealth, are exempt from this part.

D. If separate, nonexempt persons own or operate a vessel subject to this part, the owner and operator shall be jointly and severally liable for meeting the requirements of this part. If either the owner or operator is exempt, as provided in subsection C of this section, then the other person shall be responsible for meeting the requirements of this part. If both the owner and the operator are exempt, as provided in subsection C of this section, then the requirements of this part are not applicable to that vessel.
