NJ Rev Stat § 34:16-47 (2013) What's This?

34:16-47. Manufacturer or distributor of goods made by handicapped persons; registration; identification labels; fees; duration
To facilitate ready and authoritative identification of goods or articles made by handicapped persons, any handicapped person and any public or private institution or agency, firm, association or corporation engaged in the manufacture or distribution of goods or articles made by handicapped persons 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 handicapped persons. Nothing in this act shall authorize the identification of goods or articles as made by handicapped persons when the direct labor performed by handicapped persons 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 this act, to assure that such person or organization is actually engaged in the manufacture or distribution of handicapped goods or articles. 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 this act.

No fee shall be charged for registration of an individual handicapped person who manufactures and sells products of his own labor. A fee of $25.00 shall be charged and collected for registration of any other person, firm or corporation. All registrations shall be valid for 1 year from date of issue.
