(from Ch. 56 1/2, par. 66.4)
Product Registration and Firm License.
(a) No person who manufactures feed in this State or whose name appears
on the label shall distribute a commercial feed unless the person has
secured a license under this Act on forms provided by the Department which
identify the name and address of the firm and the location of each
manufacturing facility of that firm within this State. An
application for the license shall be accompanied by a fee of $30 for each
year or any portion thereof. All firm licenses shall expire December
31 of each year. Each commercial feed shall be registered before being
distributed in this State, provided, however, that customer-formula feeds
are exempt from registration. The application for registration shall be
submitted to the Director on forms furnished or acceptable to the Director.
The registration shall be accompanied by a label and such other information
as the Director may require describing the product. All registrations are
permanent unless amended or cancelled by the registrant.
(b) A distributor shall not be required to register any
product which is already registered under this Act by another
person, unless the product has been repackaged or relabelled.
(c) Changes in the guarantee of either chemical or ingredient
composition of a registered product may be permitted provided that such
changes would not result in a lowering of the feeding value of the product
for the purpose for which designed.
(d) The Director is empowered to refuse a product
registration or a firm license not in compliance with the provisions of
this Act and to suspend or revoke any product registration or firm license
subsequently found not to be in compliance with any provision of this Act;
provided, however, that no product registration or firm license shall be
refused or revoked until an opportunity has been afforded the respondent to
be heard before the Director.
