SAN DIEGO COUNTY AIR POLLUTION CONTROL DISTRICT

REGULATION III. FEES

RULE 40. PERMIT AND OTHER FEES
(Adopted June 17, 1998; Effective July 1, 1998)


(a) AUTHORITY TO CONSTRUCT AND PERMIT TO OPERATE FEES
Every applicant for an Authority to Construct and/or a Permit to Operate or a Certificate of Registration for any article, machine, equipment or other contrivance shall pay an evaluation fee for each permit unit in the amount prescribed in Section (h), except as provided in Subsection (1) below. No application for Authority to Construct or Permit to Operate or Certificate of Registration shall be considered received unless accompanied with the appropriate fee. If a permit applicant certifies to the Air Pollution Control Officer's satisfaction through declaration that it is unable to pay either the full fixed fee for fixed fee applications or the estimated application and first year renewal costs for time and material applications, the District may authorize the applicant to divide the cost into two payments with the second payment due not later than 90 days after filing of the Application for Authority to Construct or Permit to Operate or Certificate of Registration. The applicant will be required to pay any additional administrative costs resulting from this authorization. A $75 non-refundable base fee will be charged for each new application for an Authority to Construct, Permit to Operate or a Certificate of Registration.

For the purpose of this rule, T+M means time and material; T+RN means time and material plus renewal; the terms "location" and "facility" mean the same as "stationary source" defined in Rule 2 unless otherwise defined by an applicable rule or regulation.

Other charges or refunds, if applicable, shall be as prescribed in Subsections (1) through (9) of this Section (a).

  1. Reduced Fees for Similar Fee Units at a Single Location
    Every applicant for Authorities to Construct and/or Permits to Operate for a series of similar fee units submitted concurrently and located at a single location shall pay the evalua-tion fee as prescribed in Section (h) for the first fee unit. For each additional unit, the fee shall be based on the actual cost incurred by the District to evaluate and act on the application(s), to be determined by using the labor rates in Schedule 94, and the annual renewal fee listed in Section (h). The actual cost for each unit, including the annual renewal fee, shall not exceed the fee found in Column (1) of the appropriate fee schedule in Section (h) and any additional fees specified by this rule. This subsection shall only apply to the extent that each unit will be operated independently, the evaluation for an Authority to Construct for the first unit can be applied to the additional units because of similarity in design and operation and each unit can be evaluated and inspected for a Permit to Operate at the same time. The provisions of this subsection shall not apply to Fee Schedules 3, 26 and 92.

  2. Review for Compliance with Rules 20.1 through 20.10, Rules 26.0 through 26.10, Regulation X, Regulation XI, Regulation XII, federal National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs), and state Air Toxic Control Measures (ATCMs).

    The actual cost incurred by the Air Pollution Control District to determine compliance with Rules 20.1 through 20.10, Rules 26.0 through 26.10, Regulation X, Regulation XI or Regulation XII, federal NESHAPs, and state ATCMs shall be paid by the applicant, in addition to other applicable fees prescribed in this rule, if the District evaluation shows that such a determination is required. When notified that such a determination is required, the applicant shall deposit with the Air Pollution Control District the amount estimated to cover the cost of the determination. The cost shall be determined using the labor rates specified in Schedule 94.

  3. Review for Change of Location
    All applications for change of location of an existing permitted article, machine, equip-ment or other contrivance will be assessed the actual cost incurred by the District to evaluate the change of location, not to exceed the fee found in Column (1) of the appropriate fee schedule less the renewal fee in column (2) previously paid by the applicant. The actual cost incurred shall be determined using the labor rates specified in Schedule 94. In addition, fees as specified in Subsections (a)(2) and (4) shall be paid if appropriate.

  4. Review for Compliance with Rule 51
    The actual cost incurred by the Air Pollution Control District to determine compliance with Rule 51 shall be paid by the applicant in addition to other applicable fees prescribed in this rule, if the basic evaluation shows that such a determination is required. When notified that such a determination is required, the applicant shall deposit with the Air Pollution Control District the amount estimated by the District to cover the cost of the determination. The cost shall be determined using the labor rates specified in Schedule 94.

  5. Amendments to an Authority to Construct Application
    In accordance with Regulation II, an applicant may request written authorization to alter the proposed design and/or operational characteristics of a specified permit unit before work has begun on the Permit to Operate evaluation. The applicant shall pay the actual cost incurred by the District to evaluate the impact of the alteration not to exceed the value found in Column (1) of the applicable schedule of Section (h). When an additional fee is required, the applicant shall deposit with the Air Pollution Control District the amount estimated to cover the cost of the additional evaluation. The estimate and the actual cost incurred by the District shall be determined using the labor rates specified in Schedule 94. In addition, fees as specified in Subsections (a)(2) and (4) shall be paid if appropriate.

    A $37 processing and handling fee will be charged for each application pursuant to this Subsection (a)(5).

  6. Alteration, Operational Change or Replacement Involving an Existing Permit Unit
    Every applicant for an Authority to Construct and/or Permit to Operate involving the alteration of, an addition to, or a change in the permit conditions of any existing article, machine, equipment or other contrivance for which a Permit to Operate has been issued, shall deposit with the Air Pollution Control District the amount estimated to cover the cost of the evaluation. The estimate and the actual cost shall be determined by using the labor rates specified in Schedule 94, not to exceed the value found in Column (1) of the applicable schedule of Section (h).

    Replacement of non-identical permit units subject to fixed fees shall be charged the initial fee in Column (1) less Column (2) of the applicable schedule in Section (h), if there is a current permit on the equipment to be replaced. If the non-identical replacement involves an increase in renewal fees due to increased quantity or size, the applicant shall pay the incre-mental increase in the renewal fee. The increase shall be prorated from the effective date of the revised Permit to Operate until the renewal date established for the original equipment. In addition, fees as specified in Subsections (a)(2) and (4) shall be paid if appropriate.

    A $37 processing and handling fee will be charged for each application pursuant to this Subsection (a)(6).

  7. Reinspection Fees
    If, during an inspection for a Permit to Operate, a permit unit cannot be evaluated, due to circumstances beyond the control of the Air Pollution Control District, the applicant shall pay the actual cost of a reinspection. The cost shall be determined using the labor rates specified in Schedule 94.

  8. Refunds, Forfeitures and Insufficient Payment of Fees
    If an applicant withdraws an application before an engineering evaluation has been started, a full refund, less the $75 base fee, shall be made to the applicant upon request.

    If an Authority to Construct is denied or cancelled, or if an applicant withdraws an application, the Air Pollution Control District shall refund to the applicant, upon request, so much of the balance remaining of the Authority to Construct and Permit to Operate applica-tion fees paid as are in excess of the actual costs and time and materials charges incurred by the Air Pollution Control District prior to the denial, cancellation or withdrawal of the application. The actual costs and time and materials charges incurred shall be based upon the labor rates specified in Schedule 94.

    A full refund of fees paid in conjunction with an application for an Authority to Construct and/or Permit to Operate shall be made to the applicant if the article, machine, equipment or other contrivance stated on the application does not come within the purview of state law or these Rules and Regulations.

    If the actual cost incurred by the Air Pollution Control District in Subsections (a)(2), (4), (5), (6) and (7) and the applicable T+M portions of Section (h) is less than the amount deposited, the difference shall be refundable to the applicant. If any deposit is insufficient to pay all actual costs, the applicant shall pay an amount deemed sufficient by the Air Pollution Control Officer to complete the work in progress. If the applicant fails or refuses to pay such amount upon demand, the Air Pollution Control District may recover the same by action in any court of competent jurisdiction. Until such amount is paid in full, the Air Pollution Control District shall not further process the Authority to Construct application unless the Air Pollution Control Officer determines that it is in the best interest of all parties concerned to proceed. The Air Pollution Control Officer shall cancel an application when an applicant fails or refuses to pay such amount within 45 days of demand or fails or refuses to pay such amount by the date that Rule 18 requires action be taken on the application, whichever date is sooner.

    Where fees were submitted in accordance with Subsection (a)(1) and the applicant is entitled to a refund, the refund for additional units is equal to the annual renewal fee.

    An applicant may appeal, directly to the Air Pollution Control Officer, any fee based on actual costs in Subsections (a)(2), (4), (5), (6) and (7) and the applicable T+M portions of Section (h). Such appeal shall be in the form of a letter and shall specifically state the basis of the appeal.

    If an applicant has not applied for a refund within six months after notification has been made of eligibility for a refund, all rights to such refund shall be forfeited.

  9. Fee for Failing to Obtain a Permit
    When equipment is operated, built, erected, installed, altered or replaced without the owner/operator first obtaining a required Authority to Construct, Permit to Operate or Certifi-cate of Registration, a processing fee shall be charged equal to 150% of the applicable fee set forth in the fee schedules or the applicable fee plus $300, whichever is less. The assessment of such processing fee shall not limit the District's right to pursue any other remedy provided by law. This section shall not apply if equipment was previously exempt under Rule 11 and the exemption status changes, or if a complete application for equipment registration has been submitted, or if a Certificate of Registration has not been issued for preregistered equipment.

(b) ANNUAL RENEWAL FEES
An annual renewal fee shall be paid in the amount prescribed in Section (h) by any person who is required to apply for annual renewal of a permit or temporary authorization to operate pursuant to Rule 10(h) or Certificate of Registration pursuant to Rules 12 or 12.1. A $32 fee per site and $21 fee per permit shall be paid for processing and handling of each annual renewal of a permit or temporary authorization to operate.

  1. In order to effect a staggered renewal schedule as authorized by Rule 10(h), Permits to Operate or Certificates of Registration may be issued or renewed for periods less than 12 months in increments of one month. When the renewal date is changed the renewal fee shall be prorated.

  2. If a permittee certifies to the Air Pollution Control Officer's satisfaction through declaration that payment in full of permit to operate renewal fees would result in undue financial hardship, the District may negotiate an amended fee payment schedule, provided that the amended schedule includes reimbursing the District for any increased costs of processing the extra payments. Failure to make any payments by any negotiated due date may result in penalties as otherwise authorized in Rule 40 and/or cancellation of the permit.

  3. If the Air Pollution Control Officer finds that the activities of any one company would cause an increase of at least ten percent in any specific fee schedule, the Air Pollution Control Officer may delete the cost incurred as a result of that company from the cost data used to determine the fee schedule. A specific fee schedule for the company shall be developed, in this case, to recover the District cost in connection with that company's activities. The specific fee schedule developed in this case shall be submitted to the Air Pollution Control Board for consideration and adoption.

  4. If the Air Pollution Control Officer determines that a person has under-reported material usage, emissions or other information necessary for emissions inventory, and such under-reporting has led to an air contaminant emissions fee less than what would have been due if correct usage, emissions or other information had been reported, then the person shall pay the difference between the original and corrected air contaminant emissions fee plus a charge equal to 30 percent of the difference. Such charge shall not apply if the permittee demonstrates to the Air Pollution Control Officer's satisfaction that the under-reporting was the result of inadvertent error or omission which the permittee took all reasonable steps to avoid. If the amount due is not paid within 60 days of the due date, a late fee equal to 30 percent of the amount due shall be added, and an additional 10 percent added for each subsequent calendar month or portion thereof. In no case shall the late fee exceed 100 percent of the applicable fees.


(c) TRANSFER OF PERMITS
An applicant for the transfer of a valid, active Permit(s) to Operate or a Certificate of Regis-tration at a single location from one person to another or for inclusion or removal of any person(s) from the Permit(s) to Operate or a Certificate of Registration shall pay a fee of $37, and shall supply proof of entitlement to operate provided no alteration, addition, or change in location has been made to the permit item on the application.

If, after an Authority to Construct has been issued and before a Permit to Operate has been granted, another person is designated to be the permittee, that person shall submit an application for Permit to Operate and pay the refundable portion of the initial application fee as determined from Subsection (a)(8) provided that construction will be made in accordance with the Authority to Construct that was previously issued.

(n) RESERVED

(o) CALIFORNIA CLEAN AIR ACT
The owner or operator of a stationary source who is required by Title 17, California Code of Regulations, Section 90800 et seq. to pay a fee adopted by the Air Resources Board shall pay the required fee to the District within 60 days of receipt of the notice. Failure to submit the fee within 60 days of the notice will result in a late fee equal to 30 percent of the applicable fee. An additional late fee of 10 percent of the applicable fee shall be added for each subsequent calendar month. In no case shall the late fee exceed 100 percent of the fee.

(p) COOLING TOWER FEES
The owner or operator of any stationary source for which a plan is required pursuant to Rule 1202 of the Rules and Regulations of the Air Pollution Control District shall pay to the District a fee of $37 for the evaluation of each plan, as well as $21 for each cooling tower described in the plan.

The fees required by this rule shall be due at the time the plan is received. If the appropriate fee is not paid within 60 days of the due date, a late fee equal to 30 percent of the applicable fee shall be added to the plan review fee. An additional late fee of 10 percent of the applicable fee shall be added for each subsequent calendar month, or portion thereof.

Whenever the Air Pollution Control Officer finds that it is necessary for the Air Pollution Con-trol District to collect a sample(s) of the cooling tower circulating water for offsite analysis, the cost of analysis shall be paid by the source. The cost shall be equal to the cost determined by using the labor rates specified in Schedules 94 and the actual cost of collection and analysis of the sample(s).

(q) CERTIFICATION OF EQUIPMENT
Every applicant who applies for certification of equipment shall deposit with the Air Pollution Control District the amount estimated to cover the cost of review and certification. The estimate and the actual cost shall be determined by using labor rates specified in Schedule 94.

(r) AIR CONTAMINANT EMISSIONS FEE
The Air Contaminant Emissions Fee is a single, source-specific fee collected simultaneously with, and considered a part of the per unit application fee(s) from Column (1) of the fee schedules, for the first Permit(s) to Operate at new permitted or registered stationary sources, and the annual renewal per unit fee(s) from Column (2) for existing permitted or registered stationary sources, as specified in Section (h). Except as otherwise provided in this section, no air contaminant emissions fee shall be collected simultaneously with or be considered a part of the application fee for the addition of units to an existing permitted or registered stationary source that has paid an air contam-inant emissions fee as part of the most recent renewal of the current Permit(s) to Operate.

For the purposes of this section, the definitions in Rule 20.1 apply. This section applies to both existing and new stationary sources. For new stationary sources, the District shall determine the applicability of Subsections (1) or (2) based upon actual expected air contaminant emissions from the stationary source as estimated by the District, for the calendar year in which the permit to operate for the source is issued. If the actual expected air contaminant emissions of carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen, oxides of sulfur, particulate matter (PM10) or volatile organic compounds (VOCs) equal or exceed 10 tons for that calendar year, the air contaminant emissions fee shall be based on such expected emissions. This initial fee shall continue until revised to reflect District approved emissions inventory data when such data is available for the stationary source.

  1. The owner or operator of a stationary source from which the emissions of either carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen, oxides of sulfur, PM10 or VOCs equal or exceed 10 tons in the calendar year for which the most recent District approved emissions inventory data exists shall pay a source-specific annual air contaminant emissions fee. The amount of the fee shall be based on the aggregate emissions of carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen, oxides of sulfur, PM10 and VOCs from the stationary source in the calendar year for which the most recent District approved emissions inventory data exists, and an air contaminant emissions fee rate of $82 per ton.

  2. The owner or operator of a stationary source that is not subject to the source-specific annual air contaminant emissions fee prescribed in Subsection (1) above, shall pay an annual source category emissions fee. The amount of the fee shall be as follows, based on the fee schedule that is most representative of the nature of the activities at the stationary source:

Where more than one source category description or fee schedule applies, and it cannot be determined which is most representative of the nature of the activities at a stationary source, the single source category description or fee schedule that results in the maximum annual emissions fee shall apply for purposes of this section.

(s) TITLE V OPERATING PERMIT FEES
The owner or operator of a stationary source for which a federal operating permit is required pursuant to Regulation XIV (Title V Operating Permits) of these Rules and Regulations shall pay a fee sufficient to recover the actual costs incurred by the Air Pollution Control District to review, evaluate and act upon applications for enhanced Authorities to Construct initial permits, permit amendments, permit modifications, permit revisions, permit reopening and permit renewals. The costs shall be determined using the labor rates specified in Schedule 94, except that the costs associated with annual permit renewals shall be determined using the labor rates specified in Schedule 94. When required to apply for an initial Title V permit pursuant to Regulation XIV, the owner or operator of a stationary source shall pay an additional base fee of $2200 for each stationary source, plus the cost recovery fee specified above.

The Title V operating permit fee shall be in addition to other applicable fees prescribed in this rule. The actual costs shall be the additional costs that the Air Pollution Control Officer determines are not otherwise recovered by other applicable fees prescribed in this rule. When required to submit an application for, or regarding, a Title V operating permit, the applicant shall deposit with the Air Pollution Control District the amount estimated to cover the cost of reviewing, evaluating and acting upon the application.

SCHEDULES 59 THROUGH 90, RESERVED

SCHEDULE 91: Miscellaneous - Hourly Rates
The fee for the Authority to Construct, Permit to Operate and annual renewal for items not listed in the above fee schedules of this subsection shall be determined by the actual costs incurred by the Air Pollution Control District. The initial Authority to Construct, Permit to Operate and first year renewal fee per unit shall be the sum of the annual renewal fee per unit and the actual Autho-rity to Construct and Permit to Operate evaluation cost, each determined by using the labor rates specified in Schedule 94. The annual renewal fee per unit (Column 2) shall be the sum of the cost determined using the labor rates in Schedule 94 plus the air contaminant emissions fee based on Rule 40(r).

The applicant shall deposit with the Air Pollution Control District the amount estimated to cover the cost of evaluation and inspection, including the first year's surveillance, before an Authority to Construct and/or Permit to Operate is processed. If the actual cost incurred by the Air Pollution Control District is less than the amount deposited, the difference shall be refunded to the applicant. If any deposit is insufficient to pay all the actual costs, the applicant shall pay an amount deemed sufficient by the Air Pollution Control Officer to complete the work in progress. If the applicant fails or refuses to pay such amount upon demand, the Air Pollution Control District may recover the same by action in any court of competent jurisdiction until such amount is paid in full, providing the Air Pollution Control Officer determines that it is in the best interest of all parties concerned to proceed. An Authority to Construct and/or Permit to Operate shall not be issued until all required fees are paid.

All other fees specified in Sections (a) through (g) of this rule, shall also apply to this fee schedule.

SCHEDULE 92: Source Testing Done by the District
Whenever the Air Pollution Control Officer finds that it is necessary for the Air Pollution Control District or a contractor hired by the District to make an analysis of emissions from any source for the purpose of more accurately quantifying emissions or determining whether a Permit to Operate or a Certificate of Registration or annual renewal of a Permit to Operate or a Certificate of Registration shall be issued, or where there is good reason to believe a source may not be in compliance with the District's Rules and Regulations the cost of collection and analysis of samples, including preparing the necessary reports, shall be added to the appropriate fee schedule herein. Source test fees shall be as determined in the following manner:

The cost of testing not specified in Sections (a) through (t) or where a T+M fee is indicated, or for additional District costs in those cases (e.g., tall stacks) when testing requires an unusually greater amount of onsite time than that represented by the fixed fees specified in this Schedule, shall be determined using the labor rates specified in Schedule 94 and related material and other costs.

SCHEDULE 93: Observations and Evaluations of Source Testing Performed by Private Companies
Whenever the Air Pollution Control Officer finds that it is necessary for the Air Pollution Control District to observe source testing performed by private companies for the purpose of deter-mining whether a Permit to Operate or a Certificate of Registration or annual renewal of a Permit to Operate or a Certificate of Registration shall be issued, or where there is good reason to believe a source may not be in compliance with the District's Rules and Regulations, the cost of the observation and the preparation of a report shall be added to the applicable fees of this rule.

When a test procedure review is requested by a private company and the Air Pollution Control Officer agrees that a review should be made, the cost of the review shall be paid by such private company.

SCHEDULE 95: Sampling and Analysis
Whenever the Air Pollution Control Officer finds that it is necessary for the Air Pollution Control District to make an analysis of any samples for the purpose of determining potential emissions and/or for the purpose of determining compliance with District Rules and Regulations, the cost of collection and analysis of samples, including preparing the necessary reports, shall be paid by the permittee or applicant for activities which do not require a permit. The cost shall be equal to the cost determined by using the labor rates specified in Schedule 94 and the cost of external analysis.

SCHEDULE 96: Additional Costs Incurred by the District for Permittees Not in Compliance
Whenever the Air Pollution Control District is required to provide consultation, testing or inspection services to a permittee beyond the average consultation, testing and inspection covered by the permit fees specified in the preceding schedules, because the permittee's source is out of compliance with District Rules and Regulations, the cost of such consultation, testing, inspection and costs related to any Notice of Violation or Notice to Comply shall be a fee in addition to the permit fees provided elsewhere in Rule 40. The cost of such consultation, testing, inspection and costs related to any Notice of Violation or Notice to Comply shall be determined by using the labor rates specified in Schedule 94. The permittee shall be billed the additional fee for the consulta-tion, testing, inspection and costs related to any Notice of Violation or Notice to Comply and shall remit such amount to the Air Pollution Control District within 30 days of being notified that such amount is due, unless prior arrangements for payment have been approved by the Air Pollution Control Officer. For the purposes of this schedule, the term permittee also applies to any person who has applied for or has been issued a Certificate of Registration pursuant to Rules 12 or 12.1.

SCHEDULE 97: Other Charges
Whenever the Air Pollution Control District is required to provide consultation, legally required testimony, testing or inspection, engineering, or incur costs related to any Notice of Violation or Notice to Comply or other services to any individual, business or agency, not directly related to District permitting, registration or testing requirements, the cost of such services shall be determined using the labor rates specified in Schedule 94. Individuals, businesses or agencies requesting the service shall be billed the estimated cost of such services, and shall remit such amount to the Air Pollution Control District in advance of the service, unless prior arrangements for payment have been approved by the Air Pollution Control Officer.
