§ 1180.46. Licensing Provisions.
(a) During the period of 60 days following the adoption of this Group, the Director may issue licenses pursuant to this Group to persons who on the date of adoption were engaged in a business required to be licensed hereunder and whose facilities did not meet all of the standards so required; provided, however, the Director shall require the applicant to agree to time-phased plans for meeting said facility standards within 6 months from the date of issuance of the license. Any license so issued shall be conditioned upon time-phased compliance, which may include dates for the following: submission of plans, contracts for construction and approvals of government officials concerned, start of construction and satisfactory continuance of construction, periodic inspections and approvals during construction and final inspection and approval. If the Director finds the licensee has failed to comply with any such condition he may, upon notice, take action to withdraw the privileges of the license.
(b) The licensing provisions of this Group 3 shall not apply to a retail store which (1) repacks for sale at the retail store properly labeled and denatured fresh or frozen pet food into properly labeled consumer sized containers or (2) sells at retail properly labeled pet food made at the retail store entirely from nonadulterated meat and meat byproducts.
(c) The Director may require any person licensed or seeking a license under this Group 3 to provide to him statements under penalty of perjury concerning any operation authorized by the license or violation of law or regulations. If the statements do not adequately deal with the matter, the Director may require further statements under penalty of perjury as to such additional matters. Failure of the licensee to provide the Director with such statements and any supporting documents or materials called for shall be grounds for disciplinary action against the license, and where further violations may be introduced, from preventing operation of the licensed facility.
(d) Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Group 3, whenever there is reason to believe a product has not been handled in accordance with laws and these regulations, the Director may stop the operation involved, hold the product, and require the operator, licensee or person in possession to show such compliance, and failing the showing of such compliance, the Director may condemn the product and require the operator, licensee or person in possession to pay the cost of such condemnation.
