A distributor or producer of ALM shall obtain a license in accordance with Minnesota Statutes, section 18C.541, subdivision 1.
If a producer distributes ALM to another person free of charge under Minnesota Statutes, section 18C.541, subdivision 6, the producer is not liable for any license and inspection fees incurred by any subsequent distributor of that product.
A person who custom applies and does not distribute ALM is not liable for license and inspection fees.
Distributors or producers applying for license and inspection fee exemption under Minnesota Statutes, section 18C.541, subdivision 6, must disclose transportation charges assessed in the distribution of industrial or municipal by-product ALM. Transportation charges must be itemized to show fees assessed for application and over-the-road transport.
To determine fair and reasonable transportation charges, the department shall collect transportation charges data from ALM distributors and producers via information required on the annual license application required by Minnesota Statutes, section 18C.541, subdivision 1, or other application forms provided by the department. Transportation charges data collected must be separated into two geographical areas:
all of Minnesota outside the metropolitan area.
These geographical areas designate where industrial or municipal by-product ALM is produced or initially transported from. Data collected must be averaged for each respective area. Distributors or producers except those exempt under Minnesota Statutes, section 18C.541, subdivision 6, must pay license and inspection fees if their transportation charges exceed the average area transportation charge.
