GENERAL TERMS AND PERMIT STIPULATIONS
A. Compliance with laws, regulations, and other legal requirements. 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. Modification, Suspension, Termination. An SRP authorizes special uses of the public lands and related waters and, should circumstances
warrant, the permit may be modified by the BLM at any time, including modification of the amount of use. The Authorized Officer 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. Permit Value & Operating Rights. 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 is not to be considered property on which the permittee shall be entitled to earn or
receive any return, income, price, or compensation, and may not be used as collateral for a loan. 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. This
permit, which is revocable and terminable, is not a contract or a lease, but rather a federal license.
D. Non-Exclusive Use. 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. Subcontracting. Where the BLM authorizes a permittee to subcontract a portion of the permitted activities, the permittee must retain
operational control of the permitted activities and must also comply with any applicable special stipulations related to contractors and
subcontractors, which may include, but are not limited to, provisions regarding permit compliance, fee payment, reporting
requirements, and insurance requirements.
F. Advertising. All printed, electronic, and oral advertising and representations made to the public and the Authorized Officer must be
accurate. Although the addresses and telephone numbers of the BLM may be included in advertising materials, the permittee will not
seek or obtain trademark rights, use or incorporate the names, trademarks, or logos of the BLM, the Government, or their employees in
any advertising, promotional, sales literature, or on any product without the prior written approval of the BLM for the specific use. The
permittee shall not state or imply that the Government or any of its organizational units or employees endorses any product, service,
or activity as being conducted by the BLM. The BLM does not directly or indirectly endorse any product or service provided, or to
be provided, by the permittee whether directly or indirectly related to this Special Recreation Permit. The permittee may not portray
or represent the permit fee as a special federal user’s tax. The permittee must furnish the authorized officer with a current brochure, or
website, including price list.
G. Responsibility of Permittee. 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 flora/fauna, abandoned mines, or other hazards that present risks for which the permittee assumes
H. Resource Protection: The permittee cannot, unless specifically authorized, erect, construct, or place any building, structure, or other
fixture on public lands. Upon leaving, the lands must be restored as nearly as possible to pre-existing conditions.
I. Display of Permit: The permittee, permittee’s employees, agents, and Authorized Officer approved subcontractors, must present or
display a copy of the SRP to an authorized officer’s representative, or law enforcement personnel upon request. If required, the permittee
must display a copy of the permit or other identification tag on equipment used during the period of authorized use.
J. Operating Plan. The operating plan submitted in the application corresponding to this permit is incorporated as the operating plan for
this permit. Any changes to your operations as described in this plan must be requested in writing to the BLM. This request must receive
prior written approval from the BLM Authorized Officer, before the operating plan changes may take effect.
K. Accounting Records: The authorized officer, or other duly authorized representative of the BLM, may examine any of the books,
documents, papers, or records pertaining to the permit or transactions related to it, in the possession of the permittee or its employees,
business affiliates, or agents for up to three years after expiration of the permit. For permits with fees greater than $10,000 annually,
when requested by the BLM, the holder at its own expense shall have its annual accounting records audited by an independent public
