May 9, 2011 - [SRRA] Regulatory Time Frame Extensions


Date & Time: 5/9/2011 1:36 PM
Subject [SRRA] Regulatory Time Frame Extensions

In response to inquiries the Department informally relaxed the requirements related to requests for extensions to the regulatory time frame of March 1, 2011, for submittal of receptor evaluations. The Department allowed, and considered valid and approved, requests that were submitted less than 30 days prior to the regulatory time frame. This practice will end on June 1, 2011. After June 1, 2011 any request for an extension to a regulatory time frame that does not meet the requirements at N.J.A.C. 7:26C-3.2 is not eligible for the automatic approval described at N.J.A.C. 7:26C-3.2(c).

The person responsible for conducting remediation who seeks an extension to a regulatory time frame must:

  • Complete and submit a Remediation Time Frame Extension Request form, available from the Department at no later than 30 days prior to the end date of the regulatory time frame
  • Identify the subject regulatory time frame, the end date of the regulatory time frame, and the amount of time beyond the end date of the regulatory time frame that is needed to comply (cannot exceed the applicable mandatory timeframe)
  • Describe the cause of the delay and steps taken to minimize the delay

Parties who receive notice that their request is denied because it is not complete may resubmit their request up to 30 days prior to the subject regulatory time frame. Note that the Department may assess penalties for failure to comply with regulatory time frames.
