(a) On or before July 1, 1993, the department shall take final action on each application for a hazardous waste facilities permit to be issued pursuant to Section 25200 for an offsite hazardous waste facility which is not subject to the time limits specified in Section 25200.7 and which has been operating under a grant of interim status pursuant to Section 25200.5 prior to January 1, 1992, if the permit application was submitted to the department before January 1, 1992. In taking final action pursuant to this section, the department shall either issue the hazardous waste facilities permit or make a final denial of the application. The department may extend final action for one year upon its determination that the permit application is complete and that more time is needed for review and evaluation of the application.
(b) On July 1, 1992, interim status granted for any existing offsite hazardous waste facility, which is not subject to the time limits specified in Section 25200.7, shall be terminated, unless the department has received an application for a final hazardous waste facilities permit pursuant to Section 25200 on or before June 30, 1992.
(c) Except for facilities subject to Section 25201.6, for any offsite facility, which facility or portion of facility was first granted interim status pursuant to Section 25200.5 on or after January 1, 1992, the department shall provide public notice for a permit determination to issue or deny a hazardous waste facilities permit for the facility, including a permit modification to incorporate a portion of a facility operating under a grant of interim status, not later than the following dates:
(1) For interim status that was first granted on or after January 1, 1992, but prior to January 1, 1994, not more than four years from the date that interim status was first granted.
(2) For interim status that was first granted on or after January 1, 1994, but prior to January 1, 1996, not more than three years from the date that interim status was first granted.
(3) For interim status that was granted on or after January 1, 1996, not more than two years from the date that interim status was first granted.
(d) For purposes of complying with this section, any change in the owner or operator of the hazardous waste facility shall not affect the applicability of this section with respect to permit determinations required for the facility, including a permit modification to incorporate a portion of the facility operating under a grant of interim status.
(e)(1) Except as provided in paragraph (2), on or before July 1, 1997, for any facility operating under a grant of interim status pursuant to Section 25200.5, based on operations conducted on November 19, 1980, the department shall review the basis for the grant of interim status, including any amendments of that grant, and shall prepare status reports concerning the results of that review. If the department discovers an error in the scope of a grant of interim status made before July 1, 1997, and the error was caused in whole, or in part, by an intentional or negligent false statement or representation in the documents filed for purposes of establishing or obtaining interim status, the department shall take immediate action to correct the error, to the full extent authorized by law. In determining whether the scope of a grant of interim status made before July 1, 1997, complies with this chapter, the department shall require evidence other than facility owner or operator or employee declarations pertaining to previous activities that are the basis for that eligibility for interim status.
(2) Paragraph (1) does not apply to a facility for which, on or before March 1, 1997, a draft permit has been issued by and is being processed by the department, a draft environmental impact report, or other appropriate document prepared pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (Division 13 (commencing with Section 21000) of the Public Resources Code) has been issued and made available for public comment and the environmental impact report or other document prepared pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act considers all impacts to the environment from facility operations, including, at a minimum, all changes to operations since November 19, 1980, that were not addressed by a previous finally approved document prepared pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act. The issuance of an appropriate document under the California Environmental Quality Act shall be deemed to have been issued for purposes of this paragraph if the lead agency has determined in writing that no further document is necessary under that act for purposes of the permit issuance.
