The issuance of a card or certificate to the applicant that shall be valid for 48 months.
Standards and specifications to govern the installation and application to include a label to identify the installer and manufacturer.
The registration of persons in the business of installing or applying the approved materials that require a $50 registration fee. Renewal is required each two years for a fee of $100.
Anyone violating items 3 and 4 shall be subject to a fine not to exceed $1,000.00 for the first offense and $5,000.00 for a second or subsequent offense.
