Written Evaluations for Changes Not Requiring Amendment
(1)For a proposed change that would add area to the site boundary, see OAR 345-027-0357 (Amendment Determination Request)(1). For a proposed change to the facility that does not include adding area to the site boundary, the certificate holder may evaluate OAR 345-027-0350 (Changes Requiring an Amendment) and 345-027-0353 (Changes Exempt from Requiring an Amendment) and conclude that the proposed change does not require an amendment. If the certificate holder concludes that a proposed change to the facility does not require an amendment to the site certificate, the certificate holder must complete a written evaluation if the change:
(a)Could be included in and governed by the site certificate, but the certificate holder has concluded the change is not described in OAR 345-027-0350 (Changes Requiring an Amendment); or
(b)Is exempt from requiring an amendment under OAR 345-027-0353 (Changes Exempt from Requiring an Amendment).
(2)The written evaluation must explain why an amendment is not required, must be completed before implementing any change, and must be included in the next semiannual construction progress report or the Facility Modification Report required under OAR 345-026-0080 (Reporting Requirements for Energy Facilities). The written evaluation must be retained for the life of the facility.
(3)The Department may, at any time, inspect the changes made to the facility and may inspect the certificate holder’s written evaluation concluding that the change did not require an amendment.
