(b) Additional Markings: In addition to the applicable marking requirements in Chapter 1, Sections 4000, 4001, and 4002, an unattended weighing system shall be conspicuously and permanently marked or continuously displayed to the driver with the following information:
(1) For systems that operate in unattended mode only, a statement such as “For unattended vehicle weighing applications only” or similar.
(2) For systems that can operate in both attended and unattended modes, a statement such as “For unattended vehicle weighing applications only” shall be visible when in the unattended mode.
(3) Operator (driver) instructions and activated controls on the system or through the driver's use of electronic equipment communicating with the system shall be clearly and conspicuously identified.
(4) The contact information and business hours of the principle weighmaster for inspection and testing, or for reporting.
(5) California Type Evaluation Program (CTEP) Certificate of Approval number or a corresponding CTEP addendum number, using the terms “CTEP TA” or “CTEP Approval” followed by the word “number,” “No.” or “#.”
