001 All permit applications shall be signed as follows:
001.01 For a corporation: by a principal executive officer of at least the level of vice-president;
001.02 For a partnership or sole proprietorship: by a general partner or the proprietor, respectively; or
001.03 For a municipality, state, federal, or other public agency: by either a principal executive officer or ranking elected official.
002 All reports required by permits and other information requested by the Director, shall be signed by a person described in Section 001 of this Chapter, or by a duly authorized representative of that person. A person is a duly authorized representative only if:
002.01 The authorization is made in writing by a person described in Section 001 of this Chapter;
002.02 The authorization specifies either an individual or a position having responsibility for the overall operation of the regulated facility or activity, such as the position of plant manager, operator of a well or a well field, superintendent, or position of equivalent responsibility (A duly authorized representative may thus be either a named individual or any individual occupying a named position).; and
002.03 The written authorization is submitted to the Director.
003 If an authorization under Section 002 of this Chapter is no longer accurate because a different individual or position has responsibility for the overall operation of the facility, a new authorization satisfying the requirements of Section 002 of this Chapter must be submitted to the Director prior to or together with any reports, information, or applications to be signed by an authorized representative.
004 Any person signing a document under Sections 001 or 002 of this Chapter shall make certification under penalty of law that he or she has personally examined and is familiar with the information submitted in the document and all attachments and that, based on inquiry of those individuals immediately responsible for obtaining the information, he or she believes that the information is true, accurate, and complete. Further, he or she shall certify awareness that there are significant penalties for submitting false information, including the possibility of fine and imprisonment.
