F.S. 531.62
1531.62 Permit application and renewal.
(1) An application for a commercial use permit shall be submitted to the department on a form prescribed and furnished by the department and must contain such information as the department may require by rule.
(2) The application must be accompanied by a fee in an amount determined by the number and types of instruments or devices covered by the permit as provided by department rule. However, the fee for each instrument or device listed on the permit may not exceed the maximum limits set forth in s. 531.63.
(3) The department shall issue a permit and such other identification tags or stickers as necessary to provide evidence of compliance with ss. 531.60-531.66.
(4) A permit expires 2 years following its date of issue and must be renewed biennially. If a complete application package for renewal is not received by the department before the permit expires, a late fee of up to $100 must be paid in addition to the commercial use permit fee. However, a person may elect to renew a commercial use permit on an annual basis rather than a biennial basis. An annual renewal must meet the same requirements and conditions as a biennial renewal.
(5) All permit fees shall be deposited into the General Inspection Trust Fund and used to carry out and enforce the provisions of this chapter relating to testing, inspection, licensing, and regulation of commercial weights and measures instruments or devices and practices in the state.
