(720 ILCS 5/12-38)
    Sec. 12-38. Restrictions on purchase or acquisition of corrosive or caustic acid.
    (a) A person seeking to purchase a substance which is regulated by Title 16 CFR Section 1500.129 of the Federal Caustic Poison Act and is required to contain the words "causes severe burns" as the affirmative statement of principal hazard on its label, must prior to taking possession:
        (1) provide a valid driver's license or other
    
government-issued identification showing the person's name, date of birth, and photograph; and
        (2) sign a log documenting the name and address of
    
the person, date and time of the transaction, and the brand, product name and net weight of the item.
    (b) Exemption. The requirements of subsection (a) do not apply to batteries or household products. For the purposes of this Section, "household product" means any product which is customarily produced or distributed for sale for consumption or use, or customarily stored, by individuals in or about the household, including, but not limited to, products which are customarily produced and distributed for use in or about a household as a cleaning agent, drain cleaner, pesticide, epoxy, paint, stain, or similar substance.
    (c) Rules and Regulations. The Illinois Department of State Police shall have the authority to promulgate rules for the implementation and enforcement of this Section.
    (d) Sentence. Any violation of this Section is a business offense for which a fine not exceeding $150 for the first violation, $500 for the second violation, or $1,500 for the third and subsequent violations within a 12-month period shall be imposed.
    (e) Preemption. The regulation of the purchase or acquisition, or both, of a caustic or corrosive substance and any registry regarding the sale or possession, or both, of a caustic or corrosive substance is an exclusive power and function of the State. A home rule unit may not regulate the purchase or acquisition of caustic or corrosive substances and any ordinance or local law contrary to this Section is declared void. This is a denial and limitation of home rule powers and functions under subsection (h) of Section 6 of Article VII of the Illinois Constitution.
