§ 13.21 

(1) Constitutes a waiver of the right 

to appeal and the right to a hearing, 

(2) Authorizes the official who issued 

the notice to find the facts to be as al-
leged in the notice, or as modified as 
the official may determine necessary 
based on any written response, and to 
issue an appropriate order, without fur-
ther notice or proceedings. 

(f) If a hearing is requested in accord-

ance with paragraph (c) or (d) of this 
section, the procedure of Subpart D of 
this part applies. At the close of the 
hearing, the Hearing Officer, on the 
record or subsequently in writing, shall 
set forth findings and conclusions and 
the reasons therefor, and either— 

(1) Dismiss the notice; or 
(2) Issue an order. 
(g) Any party to the hearing may ap-

peal from the order of the Hearing Offi-
cer by filing a notice of appeal with the 
Administrator within 20 days after the 
date of issuance of the order.

ice of the appeal brief and a copy 
served on the appellant. 

(j) On appeal the Administrator re-

views the available record of the pro-
ceeding, and issues an order dismissing, 
reversing, modifying or affirming the 
order. The Administrator’s order in-
cludes the reasons for the Administra-
tor’s action. 

(k) For good cause shown, requests 

for extensions of time to file any docu-
ment under this section may be grant-
ed by— 

(1) The official who issued the order, 

if the request is filed prior to the des-
ignation of a Hearing Officer; or 

(2) The Hearing Officer, if the request 

is filed prior to the filing of a notice of 
appeal; or 

(3) The Administrator, if the request 

is filed after the filing of a notice of ap-
