ORS 583.440¹
License required of handlers and producer-handlers
  • other licenses

(1) Beginning 30 days after June 4, 1963, no person shall engage in business as a handler or producer-handler within this state unless such person is licensed as provided in subsections (1) and (2) of this section and ORS 583.445 (Application for license) and 583.450 (Denial, suspension or revocation of license). With prior approval of the State Department of Agriculture, the location or place of business of the licensee may be moved without the requirement to obtain a new license. The license is personal to the applicant and any change in the business entity requires that a new license be obtained by the new owner.

(2) The license required by subsection (1) of this section is in addition to and not in lieu of any other license required of handlers or producer-handlers by any other law of this state or by any municipal ordinance.

(3) No person shall operate as, or engage in the business or activities of a handler, or as a producer-handler or any other type of operation, except the category or type approved by the department under ORS 583.447 (License form). The department may reissue a license showing a change in a category or type of operation if it verifies there has been such a change. Persons affected thereby may appeal the decision of the department as provided in ORS chapter 183. [1963 c.442 §§5,6; subsection (3) enacted as 1967 c.440 §5(3)]
