New York Agriculture & Markets Law
Each certificate filed pursuant to section one hundred forty-two-dd of this article shall be accompanied by an application, upon forms supplied by the commissioner, for a license to supply such material under the brand name specified therein, and there shall be transmitted therewith a copy of the label and of the statement proposed to accompany such material in compliance with section one hundred forty-two-cc of this article. Such application shall incorporate by reference the data contained in the accompanying certificate for the brand for which the license is sought. Upon compliance with the provisions of this article, the applicant shall be issued a license for the supplying of such qualifying brand of agricultural liming material, which license shall expire on the thirty-first day of December of the next even numbered year following the year in which it is issued, but no such license shall be issued for the supplying of any such material which does not meet the minimum standards herein provided for, nor for the supplying thereof under a brand descriptive designation or with a label or accompanying statement which is or tends to be misleading or deceptive as to quality, analysis or composition. Application for a renewal of the license for a period of two years shall be made biennially, upon a form prescribed by the commissioner and submitted no later than thirty days prior to the expiration of the existing license. Any such license so issued may be revoked by the commissioner, after notice to the licensee by mail or otherwise and opportunity to be heard, when it appears that any statement or representation upon which it is issued is false or misleading. The action of the commissioner in refusing to grant a license, or in revoking a license, shall be subject to review by a proceeding under article seventy-eight of the civil practice law and rules, but the decision of the commissioner shall be final unless within thirty days from the date of the order embodying such action such proceeding to review has been instituted. Whenever a manufacturer, producer or distributor shall have been licensed to supply a particular brand of material hereunder, no agent, seller or retailer of such brand shall be required to file a certificate or obtain a license for such brand during a period for which such license is in effect, nor upon such goods which were acquired during a period for which a license was in effect and remaining undistributed in subsequent years.
