Permit transfers.

(1) The department shall approve permit transfers under the provisions of RCW 78.44.171 if the new permit holder provides the following documents:
(a) A revised reclamation plan together with:
(i) Written approval of all persons having a possessory interest in the land;
(ii) A revised Form SM-6 approved by the local government if a new subsequent use of the permit area is proposed;
(iii) A SEPA checklist. This checklist shall address only those impacts relating to the revised reclamation plan.
(b) Acceptable performance security as determined by the department pursuant to RCW 78.44.120.
(c) Written approval of the permit transfer signed by the former permit holder. The department may transfer the reclamation permit without the permission of the former permit holder if a declaration of abandonment has been issued according to RCW 78.44.220.
(d) Written notification from the new permit holder that they assume all duties of the former permit holder to reclaim the surface mine.
(2) The department may waive the requirement for a revised reclamation plan when it finds that the existing reclamation plan meets the minimum reclamation requirements.
(3) The department shall not transfer the reclamation permit until this permit and all others held by both the former and the new permit holders are in compliance with the act, these rules, the reclamation permit, and any orders of the department. This requirement may be waived upon approval of a plan and schedule that will result in compliance within eighteen months of the permit transfer date. This plan and schedule shall be considered as part of the reclamation plan, and failure to comply with the plan and schedule shall constitute violations of this chapter.
