(1) all documents and information identified in regulation as being required for renewal of the license; and

(d) The department may place one or more conditions on a renewed license issued under this section to further the purposes of this section.
(e) The department shall adopt regulations establishing the grounds for nonrenewal of a license for purposes of AS 47.32.050 and this section.
