Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

420 ILCS 56/20

    (420 ILCS 56/20)
    Sec. 20. Registration requirements; notification requirements.
    (a) Each laser installation operator, unless otherwise exempted, shall register the laser installation with the Agency before using a laser system at the laser installation. The registration shall be filed annually on a form prescribed by the Agency and shall include the laser safety officer's name. If any change occurs in a laser installation, the change or changes shall be registered with the Agency within 30 days. If registering a change in each source of laser radiation or the type or strength of each source of radiation is impractical, the Agency may approve blanket registration of the installation. Laser installations registered with the Agency on the effective date of this Act shall retain their registration.
    (b) Each temporary laser display operator, unless otherwise exempted, shall register as a temporary laser display operator with the Agency before conducting a temporary laser display in this State. A temporary laser display operator must register only once with the Agency but must update the temporary laser display operator's registration information provided in obtaining the temporary laser display operator's registration as needed. Registration may be completed or updated at the same time as the notification required under subsection (d). Registration shall be submitted in a format prescribed by the Agency.
    (c) Registration of a laser installation or temporary laser display operator shall not imply approval of manufacture, storage, use, handling, operation, or disposal of laser systems or laser radiation, but shall serve only as notice to the Agency of the location and character of radiation sources in this State.
    (d) Once registered with the Agency, each temporary laser display operator shall provide notice to the Agency of each temporary laser display at least 10 working days before conducting the temporary laser display. The notification shall include any information required by the Agency by rule and the name of a laser safety officer who will be physically present during the setup, rehearsal, and performance of the temporary laser display. For each notification submitted under this subsection, the Agency shall provide a written approval or rejection to the temporary laser display operator prior to the temporary laser display.
