A developer with a [[Federal Energy Regulatory Commission]] (FERC) license or exemption may decide to surrender the authorization. FERC may also require surrender of a license. Under any of these circumstances, the developer must complete the relevant FERC surrender process. The [[FERC Division of Hydropower Administration and Compliance|Division of Hydropower Administration and Compliance]] within FERC processes applications to surrender authorizations.
Overview of the permit or section being discussed.
==20.1 to 20.3 – Does the Developer Wish To Surrender Federal Energy Regulatory Commission License or Exemption?==
If the developer decides to surrender an authorization in the form of either a FERC license or exemption, the developer must follow the relevant FERC surrender process. In order to surrender either type of authorization, the developer must reach an agreement with FERC prior to surrendering the authorization. [[FERC Hydroelectric Project Handbook for Filings other than Licenses and Exemptions| FERC Handbook, page 6-1]].
'''FERC Surrender of License Process'''
A developer may decide to surrender a FERC license, or FERC may require the surrender of a license by denying a new license and require the developer to decommission the project, in whole or in part. Surrender may be for projects that have already been constructed, projects currently under construction or just for the license. The first step of the surrender process requires the developer to submit an application to FERC. [[Title 18 CFR 6.1 Application for Surrender|18 C.F.R. § 6.1]]; [[FERC Hydroelectric Project Handbook for Filings other than Licenses and Exemptions|FERC Handbook, page 6-1]].

'''FERC Surrender of Exemption Process'''
A developer may decide to surrender a FERC exemption. Requirements for surrender of a conduit exemption are outlined in [[Title 18 CFR 4.95 Surrender of Exemption|18 C.F.R. § 4.95]]. Requirements for surrender of a 10MW exemption are outlined in [[Title 18 CFR 4.102 Surrender of Exemption|18 C.F.R. § 4.102]]. Under either process, the developer is required to consult with the relevant resource management agency and submit a Petition for Surrender of an Exemption to FERC. [[Title 18 CFR 4.95 Surrender of Exemption|18 C.F.R. § 4.95 (a)]] and [[Title 18 CFR 4.102 Surrender of Exemption|18 C.F.R. § 4.102 (a)]]; [[FERC Hydroelectric Project Handbook for Filings other than Licenses and Exemptions|FERC Handbook, page 6-1]].
