a. The permittee shall comply with all Federal, State, and local laws; ordinances; regulations; orders; postings; or written
requirements applicable to the area or operations covered by the Special Recreation Permit (SRP). The permittee shall ensure that
all persons operating under the authorization have obtained all required Federal, State, and local licenses or registrations. The
permittee shall make every reasonable effort to ensure compliance with these requirements by all agents of the permittee and by all
clients, customers, participants, and spectators under the permittee’s supervision.
b. An SRP authorizes special uses of the public lands and related waters and, should circumstances warrant, the permit may be
modied by the BLM at any time, including modication of the amount of use. The authorized ofcer may suspend or terminate
an SRP if necessary to protect public resources, health, safety, the environment, or because of non-compliance with permit
stipulations. Actions by the BLM to suspend or terminate an SRP are appealable.
c. No value shall be assigned to or claimed for the permit, or for the occupancy or use of Federal lands or related waters granted
thereupon. The permit privileges are not to be considered property on which the permittee shall be entitled to earn or receive any
return, income, price, or compensation. The use of a permit as collateral is not recognized by the BLM.
d. Unless expressly stated, the SRP does not create an exclusive right of use of an area by the permittee. The permittee shall not
interfere with other valid uses of the federal land by other users. The United States reserves the right to use any part of the area for
any purpose.
e. The permittee or permittee’s representative may not assign, contract, or sublease any portion of the permit authorization or interest
therein, directly or indirectly, voluntarily or involuntarily. However, contracting of equipment or services may be approved by the
authorized ofcer in advance, if necessary to supplement a permittee’s operations. Such contracting should not constitute more
than half the required equipment or services for any one trip or activity and the permittee must retain operational control of the
permitted activity. If equipment or services are contracted, the permittee shall continue to be responsible for compliance with all
stipulations and conditions of the permit.
f. All advertising and representations made to the public and the authorized ofcer must be accurate. Although the addresses and
telephone numbers of the BLM may be included in advertising materials, ofcial agency symbols may not be used. The permittee
shall not use advertising that attempts to portray or represent the activities as being conducted by the BLM. The permittee may not
portray or represent the permit fee as a special federal users tax. The permittee must furnish the authorized ofcer with any
current brochure and price list if requested by the authorized ofcer.
g. The permittee assumes responsibility for inspecting the permitted area for any existing or new hazardous conditions, e.g., trail and
route conditions, landslides, avalanches, rocks, changing water or weather conditions, falling limbs or trees, submerged objects,
hazardous ora/fauna, abandoned mines, or other hazards that present risks for which the permittee assumes responsibility.
h. In the event of default on any mortgage or other indebtedness, such as bankruptcy, creditors shall not succeed to the operating
rights or privileges of the permittee’s SRP.
i. The permittee cannot, unless specically authorized, erect, construct, or place any building, structure, or other xture on public
lands. Upon leaving, the lands must be restored as nearly as possible to pre-existing conditions.
j. The permittee must present or display a copy of the SRP to an authorized ofcers representative, or law enforcement personnel
upon request. If required, the permittee must display a copy of the permit or other identication tag on equipment used during the
period of authorized use.
k. The authorized ofcer, or other duly authorized representative of the BLM, may examine any of the records or other documents
related to the permit, the permittee or the permittee’s operator, employee, or agent for up to three years after expiration of the
l. The permittee must submit a post-use report to the authorized ofcer according to the due dates shown on the permit. If the post-
use report is not received by the established deadline, the permit will be suspended and/or late fees assessed.
m. The permittee shall notify the authorized ofcer of any incident that occurs while involved in activities authorized by this permit,
which result in death, personal injury requiring hospitalization or emergency evacuation, or in property damage greater than $2,500
(lesser amounts if established by State law). Reports should be submitted within 24 hours.

Commercial use is dened as recreational use of the public lands and related waters for business or nancial gain. The activity,
service, or use is commercial if any person, group or organization makes or attempts to make a prot, receive money, amortize
equipment, or obtain goods or services, as compensation from participants in recreational activities occurring on public lands led,
sponsored, or organized by that person, group, or organization. An activity, service, or use is commercial if anyone collects a fee or
receives other compensation that is not strictly a sharing of, or exceeds, actual expenses incurred for the purposes of the activity,
service or use. Commercial use is also characterized by situations where there is paid public advertising to seek participants or
participants pay for a duty of care or an expectation of safety. Prot-making organizations and organizations seeking to make a prot
are automatically classied as commercial, even if that part of their activity covered by the permit is not prot-making or the business
as a whole is not protable. Use of the public lands by scientic, educational, and therapeutic institutions or non-prot organizations is
commercial and subject to a permit requirement when it meets any of the threshold criteria above. The non-prot status of any group
or organization does not alone determine that an event or activity arranged by such a group or organization is noncommercial.
Financial Gain occurs when an individual or entity receives or attempts to receive money, donations, gratuities, or gifts, amortizes
equipment, or barters for goods or services.
Competitive Use means any organized, sanctioned, or structured use, event, or activity on public land in which two or more contestants
compete and any of the following elements apply: (1) Participants register, enter, or complete an application for the event; or (2) A
predetermined course or area is designated. It also means one or more individuals contesting an established record such as speed or
Organized Group Activity or Event means a structured, ordered, consolidated, or scheduled event on, or occupation of, public lands
for the purpose of recreational use that is not commercial or competitive, and which BLM has determined needs a special recreation
permit based on planning decisions, resource concerns, potential user conicts, or public health and safety.
Vending means selling or renting recreation related goods or services such as rewood, equipment repair, shuttles, rentals, etc. on the
public lands or related waters.
