(b) Absent extraordinary circumstances, a conditional stevedore license shall be granted to any person who is engaged to perform labor or services involving, or incidental to, the movement of freight into or out of containers (which have been or which will be carried by a carrier of freight by water) only at a warehouse, depot or other terminal which is located outside of a marine terminal (i.e. other waterfront terminal), upon submission of an annual self-certification of compliance indicating that the prospective licensee:
(1) maintains books and records containing a true and accurate account of the receipts and records arising out of his activities within the Port of New York district; and

(3) does not have, as an officer, director, member, manager, partner, principal stockholder, or person with direct operational managerial authority, any individual who has been convicted of a felony within the preceding five years; has not, to the best of his knowledge, hired any person who has been convicted of a racketeering activity within the preceding five years, or any person who has been identified by a Federal, State or local law enforcement agency as a member or an associate of organized crime group, a terrorist group, or a career offender cartel (as those terms are defined by § 5-h[6] and § 5-i[6] of the Act); and has not, to best of his knowledge, hired any person whose application for registration or licensure has been denied, or whose registration or license has been revoked or suspended, by the commission.
(c) Any person granted a conditional stevedore license pursuant to this Part may, in lieu of assessments, elect to make an annual payment in the amount of $2,500. Such payment shall not exceed assessments that would have otherwise been required under article XIII(3) of the Act.

(e) Any person ineligible for a conditional stevedore license by reason of inability to certify self-compliance with the provisions set forth in subdivision (b) of this section may petition the commission for a waiver of ineligibility, setting forth the reason(s) for such inability to certify self-compliance. The commission may in its discretion issue an order removing such ineligibility upon a showing of good cause.
(f) A conditional stevedore license issued under subdivision (b) of this section shall be renewable on an annual basis, and shall be restricted to the performance of the services contemplated by said subdivision.
(g) A stevedore license shall not be required:
(1) by any person engaged exclusively in moving by means of floating mechanical equipment bulk cargo consisting of a single commodity loaded or carried without wrappers or containers and delivered by the carrier without transportation mark or count; or
(2) by any person who is not principally engaged in the movement of waterborne freight and who on occasion moves waterborne freight for or on behalf of a carrier of freight by water or a stevedore, exclusively by means of mobile land-based cranes not affixed to a pier or terminal with capacity of at least 20 tons, or exclusively by means of floating mechanical equipment; or
(3) by any person who furnishes such equipment as set forth in paragraph (2) of this subdivision to move waterborne freight to a carrier of freight by water or stevedore by lease, rental or otherwise; or
(4) by any person who is not engaged to handle freight within 1,000 yards of a pier that is in regular use for the movement of waterborne freight between vessel and shore.
(h) A carrier of freight by water shall not require a stevedore license even though it may perform all or part of the services for which a stevedore license would be required when performed by any other person, provided that such services are performed on its own account, or on account of a parent corporation or a subsidiary corporation of such carrier, or as accommodation, not in the regular course of its business, at its own pier for another carrier of freight by water, or as part of its services for another carrier of freight by water for which it is a general agent.
(i) For purposes of this Part, the distance from a pier to other waterfront terminals shall not exceed 1000 yards from the currently established boundaries (i.e., fence line) of a pier, inclusive of cargo handling facilities and storage yards in which containers and other waterborne freight (i.e., non-bulk cargo) are placed while awaiting removal from the pier to another location. Such boundaries shall be identified and published by the commission within 90 days of the effective date of this amendment.
