§ 21-9-2. License required.
It shall be unlawful for any person to directly or indirectly manufacture, sell, distribute, receive for distribution, or hold in his or her possession or control any frozen dessert or frozen dessert mix for distribution, sale, or resale without first obtaining a license to do so from the director of health. Application for a license shall be filed with the director of health on forms prescribed and furnished by the director. The application shall include, among other things, the location of each plant at which frozen desserts and/or frozen dessert mixes are to be manufactured into a form for distribution, sale, or resale and the brand name or names, if any, under which they are to be distributed, sold, or resold. In order to set the license renewal dates so that all activities for each establishment can be combined on one license instead of on several licenses, the department of health shall set the license renewal date. The license period shall be for twelve (12) months, commencing on the license renewal date, and the license fee shall be at the full annual rate regardless of the date of application or the date of issuance of license. If the license renewal date is changed, the department may make an adjustment to the fees of licensed establishments, not to exceed the annual license fee, in order to implement the change in license renewal date.
