(c) The Agency shall deny the application if, after commencement of a Declaratory Decision Proceeding, the Agency determines that:
(1) undisputed facts sufficient to support a meaningful Declaratory Decision do not exist;
(2) the subject matter of the application is also the subject of pending administrative or judicial proceedings;
(3) no question or issue could arise concerning the application of rules, regulations, orders, statutes, or final administrative decisions on a matters within the primary jurisdiction of the Agency; or
(4) any of the factors in Government Code section 11465.20(b) apply.
(d) The Agency's denial of an application for a Declaratory Decision shall be in writing and shall state the reasons for denying the application for a Declaratory Decision. Notice of the denial shall be served upon the Applicant and every party and sent to each Person who was given notice of the application under Regulation 1270 or who requested such notice under Regulation 1278.
