CHAPTER V. SCHEDULE FOR APPLICATION REVIEW PROCESS OSWER Directive 9650.12 SUGGESTED PROCEDURES FOR REVIEW OF STATE UST APPLICATIONS May 1992

V. SCHEDULE FOR APPLICATION REVIEW PROCESS

Subtitle I requires that the Regional Administrator make a final determination on the application within 180 days from receipt of a complete application (Section 9004(d)). This section presents two proposed schedules for getting final approval: one for a streamlined process; and one for a more extended process within the allowable time period of 180 days. Note that even a streamlined schedule is estimated to take about 140 days. The dates in the schedules provided here are suggestions to the Regions for meeting the 180-day deadline. Regions are encouraged to shorten this schedule whenever possible.

A streamlined schedule for program approval is shown on pages 27 and 28. This schedule assumes that:

A second schedule, provided on pages 28-30, displays the approval process over a longer period of time as a result of outstanding issues and public comments. This schedule still meets the 180-day deadline.
