The fees shall be assessed in accordance with 9VAC20-60-1270 through 9VAC20-60-1286.

C. When the director finds it necessary to modify any permit under 9VAC20-60-270, the holder of that permit shall be considered an applicant and shall be assessed a fee in accordance with 9VAC20-60-1270 C even if the director shall have initiated the modification action.

D. When the director finds it necessary to revoke and reissue any permit in accordance with 9VAC20-60-270, the holder of that permit shall be considered an applicant for a new permit and shall be assessed a fee in accordance with 9VAC20-60-1270 B.

E. If the director finds it necessary either to revoke and reissue a permit or to perform a minor modification of a permit in accordance with 9VAC20-60-270, the holder of that permit shall be considered an applicant and shall be assessed a fee in accordance with 9VAC20-60-1270 D. The holder of a permit shall not be assessed a permit modification fee for minor modifications.

F. When the director finds it necessary to issue an emergency treatment, storage, or disposal permit in accordance with 9VAC20-60-270, the holder of that permit shall be considered an applicant and shall be assessed a fee in accordance with 9VAC20-60-1270 E.

G. Exemptions.

1. The owners and operators of HWM treatment, storage, and disposal facilities who have submitted Part A of their application and who have qualified for interim status in accordance with 9VAC20-60-270 are exempt from the requirements of 9VAC20-60-1270 until a Part B application for the entire facility or a portion of the facility has been requested or voluntarily submitted. The owner and operator of a HWM facility submitting a Part B application will be considered an applicant for a new permit.

2. The owners and operators of HWM facilities that are deemed to possess a permit by rule in accordance with 9VAC20-60-270 are exempt from the requirements of 9VAC20-60-1270.

3. Hazardous waste generators that accumulate wastes on site in accordance with 40 CFR 262.34 are not subject to regulations contained in 9VAC20-60-1270 since HWM permits are not required for such accumulations.
