§2470.  Registration of terminal facilities

A.  A person may not operate or cause to be operated a terminal facility without a discharge prevention and response certificate issued pursuant to rules promulgated under this Chapter; however, such facility may be operated without a certificate for those purposes that do not involve the transfer or storage of oil.  

B.(1)  As a condition precedent to the issuance or renewal of a certificate, the coordinator shall require satisfactory evidence that:

(a)  The applicant has implemented a discharge prevention and response plan consistent with state and federal plans and regulations for prevention of unauthorized discharges of oil and abatement, containment, and removal of pollution when such discharge occurs.  

(b)  The applicant can provide, directly or through membership or contract with a discharge cleanup organization, all required equipment and personnel to prevent, abate, contain, and remove pollution from an unauthorized discharge of oil as provided in the plan.  

(2)  A terminal facility response plan that complies with requirements under federal law and regulations for a terminal facility response plan satisfies the requirements of Subparagraph (1)(a) of this Subsection.  

C.  Notwithstanding other provisions of this Chapter, the owner of a facility shall qualify for a certificate if all persons leasing or operating the facility have received a certificate.
