New York Agriculture & Markets Law

Sec. § 251-Z-4

In addition to the exemptions specified in subdivision three of section two hundred fifty-one-z-two, the commissioner may, if he determines that the protection of the consumers of the state as a whole will not be impaired by such action, provide by regulation for exemption from licensing of small food processing establishments when he finds that such exemptions would avoid unnecessary regulation and assist in the administration of this article without impairing its purposes. Regulations defining such exemptions may classify exempted establishments with respect to the volume and types of food handled, the types of processing involved, or with respect to any other factor or combination thereof which bear a reasonable relation to the purposes of this article. Such exemptions may be conditioned upon requirements relating to sanitation, record keeping and reporting as the commissioner may require.
