§ 1326.4. Review of Application for Certification.
(a) Upon acceptance of an application for certification, a certifying agent must:
(1) Review the application to ensure completeness pursuant to section 1326.3 of this Article;
(2) Determine by a review of the application materials whether the applicant appears to comply or may be able to comply with the applicable requirements of the Act and this Chapter;
(3) Verify that an applicant who previously applied to another certifying agent and received a notification of noncompliance or denial of certification, pursuant to section 1326.7 of this Article, has submitted documentation to support the correction of any issues of noncompliance identified in the notification of noncompliance or denial of certification, as required in section 1326.7(e) of this Article; and
(4) Schedule an on-site inspection, pursuant to section 1326.5 of this Article, of the production or distribution operation to determine whether the applicant qualifies for certification if the review of application materials reveals that the production or distribution operation may be in compliance with the applicable requirements of the Act and this Chapter.
(b) A certifying agent shall:
(1) Review the application materials received and communicate its findings to the applicant; and
(2) Provide the applicant with a copy of the on-site inspection report, as approved by the certifying agent, for any on-site inspection performed.
(c) The applicant may withdraw its application at any time. An applicant that voluntarily withdraws its application prior to the issuance of a notice of noncompliance will not be issued a notice of noncompliance. Similarly, an applicant that voluntarily withdraws its application prior to the issuance of a notice of certification denial will not be issued a notice of certification denial.
(d) If the certifying agent is a government entity other than the Department, it may use its own authorized procedures for application review in lieu of this section's requirements as long as such review includes an on-site inspection of an applicant's compliance with the Act and applicable provisions of this Chapter by a process equivalent to that described in section 1326.5 of this Article.
