501.913 Registration.
(1) Each brand of antifreeze to be distributed in this state must be registered with the department before distribution. The person whose name appears on the label, the manufacturer, or the packager shall make application annually or biennially to the department on forms provided by the department. The registration certificate expires 12 or 24 months after the date of issue, as indicated on the registration certificate. The registrant assumes, by application to register the brand, full responsibility for the registration, quality, and quantity of the product sold, offered, or exposed for sale in this state.
(2) The completed application shall be accompanied by:
(a) Specimens or copies of the label for each brand of antifreeze;
(b) An application fee of $200 for a 12-month registration or $400 for a 24-month registration for each brand of antifreeze; and
(c) For first-time applications, a certified report from an independent testing laboratory, dated no more than 6 months before the registration application, providing analysis showing that the antifreeze conforms to minimum standards required for antifreeze by this part or rules of the department and is not adulterated.
(3) The department may analyze or inspect the antifreeze to ensure that it:
(a) Meets the labeling claims;
(b) Conforms to minimum standards required for antifreeze by this part or rules of the department; and
(c) Is not adulterated as prescribed for antifreeze by this part.
(4)(a) If the registration requirements are met, and, if the antifreeze meets the minimum standards, is not adulterated, and meets the labeling claims, the department shall issue a certificate of registration authorizing the distribution of that antifreeze in the state for the permit period.
(b) If registration requirements are not met, or, if the antifreeze fails to meet the minimum standards, is adulterated, or fails to meet the labeling claims, the department shall refuse to register the antifreeze.
