6)         The out-of-state licensee shall not transfer or dispose of radioactive material possessed or used under the general license provided in this Section, except by transfer to a person:


A)        Specifically licensed by the Agency, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission or another state to receive such material; or


B)        Exempt from the requirements for a license for such material under Section 330.40(a).


b)         In addition to the provisions of subsection (a), any person who holds a specific license issued by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission or an Agreement State authorizing the holder to manufacture, transfer, install or service a device described in Section 330.220(a) within areas subject to the jurisdiction of the licensing body is hereby granted a general license to install, transfer, demonstrate or service the device in this State, provided that:

2)         The person shall assure that any labels required to be affixed to the device under regulations of the authority that licensed manufacture of the device bear a statement that "Removal of this label is prohibited".


c)         The Agency may withdraw, limit or qualify its acceptance of any specific license issued by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission or another state, or any product distributed pursuant to the license, if the Agency determines that had the person been licensed in Illinois by the Agency, the license would have been subject to action under Section 330.500.
