          (3)  Any applicant who fails to submit any relevant facts or who has submitted incorrect information in a permit application shall, upon becoming aware of such failure or incorrect submittal, submit such supplementary facts or corrected information within 30 days unless the applicant's request for more time has been approved by the DEQ.  In addition, an applicant shall provide additional information as necessary to address any requirements that become applicable to the source after the date it filed a complete application but prior to release of the draft permit.

     (d)  Applicability determination.  Upon written request along with the required fee and any relevant information needed, the DEQ will make a determination of whether a permit is required.

     (e)  Change in permit status.  The owner or operator of a permitted facility may at any time notify the DEQ that the facility:
          (1)  Is de minimis, requesting termination of the permit, or
          (2)  Qualifies for either a permit by rule or a general permit, submitting the appropriate application for such permit.

     (f)  Transfer of permit.  The transfer of ownership of a stationary source or a facility shall subject the new owner or operator to existing permit conditions and/or compliance schedules.  A new permit is not required.  The transferor shall notify the AQD in writing no later than 10 days following the change in ownership.
