In making a determination pursuant to Section 25186, the director may contact the district attorney, local agencies, the Attorney General, the United States Department of Justice, the Environmental Protection Agency, or other agencies outside of the state which have, or have had, regulatory or enforcement jurisdiction over the applicant in connection with any hazardous waste or hazardous materials activities.


Every hazardous waste licenseholder or applicant, other than a federal, state, or local agency, who is not otherwise required to file a disclosure statement on or before January 1, 1989, shall file a disclosure statement with the department on or before January 1, 1989.


If changes or additions of information regarding majority ownership, the business name, or the information required by paragraphs (6) and (8) of subdivision (a) of Section 25112.5 occur after the filing of the statement, the licenseholder or applicant shall provide that information to the department, in writing, within 30 days of the change or addition.


Any person submitting a disclosure statement shall pay a fee set by the department in an amount adequate to defray the costs of implementing this section, per person, officer, director, or partner required to be listed in the disclosure statement, in addition to any other fees required. The department shall deposit these fees in the Hazardous Waste Control Account. The fees shall be made available, upon appropriation by the Legislature, to cover the costs of conducting the necessary background searches.


Any person who knowingly makes any false statement or misrepresentation in a disclosure statement filed pursuant to the requirements of this chapter is, upon conviction, subject to the penalties specified in Sections 25189 and 25189.2 and subdivision (a) of Section 25191.
