To facilitate ready and authoritative identification of goods or articles made by
persons with disabilities, any person with a disability and any public or private institution or agency, firm, association, or corporation engaged in the manufacture or distribution of goods or articles made
by persons with disabilities shall apply to the division for registration and authorization to use an official
imprint, stamp, symbol, or label, designed or approved by the division, to identify goods and articles as made by persons with disabilities. Nothing in P.L.1975, c. 350 (C.34:16-45 et seq.) shall authorize the identification of goods or articles as made by persons with disabilities when the direct labor performed by persons with disabilities in connection therewith shall consist solely of the packaging or packing thereof
as distinguished from the preparation, processing, or assembling of such goods or articles. The division shall investigate each application, under rules and regulations it
shall adopt for the administration of P.L.1975, c. 350 (C.34:16-45 et seq.), to assure that such person or organization is actually engaged in the manufacture
or distribution of goods or articles made by persons with disabilities. The division may register without investigation nonresident individuals and out-of-state
agencies, firms, associations, or corporations upon proof that they are recognized
and approved by the state of their residence or organized pursuant to a law of such
state imposing requirements substantially similar to those prescribed pursuant to
P.L.1975, c. 350 (C.34:16-45 et seq.).
No fee shall be charged for registration of an individual person with a disability who manufactures and sells products of the person's own labor. A fee of $25 shall be charged and collected for registration of any other person, firm, or corporation. All registrations shall be valid for one year from date of issue.
