Section 51:7-4 - Issuance Of Certificates; Nontransferable; False Certificate
51:7-4. Issuance of certificates; nontransferable; false certificate
The certificates of origin as herein provided shall be issued only on forms to be supplied, on application therefor, by the superintendent of the department, shall be serially numbered and issued consecutively. A nominal charge to cover the cost of supplying such forms may be made by the superintendent. Said certificates of origin shall be nontransferable and any person who has in his possession or who files with a weighmaster or forwards to the superintendent a false certificate of origin shall be deemed guilty of a violation of this chapter.
The superintendent of the department shall issue such blank certificates of origin to any person who is the owner or operator of a colliery, breaker or other place of production or who is the owner or operator of a yard, pocket or other place of storage, outside the State of New Jersey, upon application therefor by such person showing the necessity for the issuance of said certificates and upon proof satisfactory to the superintendent that all anthracite produced or stored is not stolen and is legally acquired at its source. Notification shall promptly be given to the superintendent in case of change of source or the obtaining of anthracite from new sources since the time said application is made, and satisfactory proof shall be furnished that the anthracite is legally acquired at the new sources.
Whenever any person who transports or intends to transport anthracite into this State furnishes proof satisfactory to the superintendent that all anthracite so transported or to be transported is legally acquired at its source and is not stolen, and further, that such person is unable to obtain certificates of origin at the breaker, colliery or other place of production or at the yard, pocket or other place of storage, blank certificates shall be issued to such person in such number as the business of such person requires.
