ORS 583.457¹
Licensee to notify department upon termination of business

(1) Holders of licenses issued under ORS 583.440 (License required of handlers and producer-handlers) shall in writing notify the State Department of Agriculture when they cease doing business thereunder, or when there is a change in ownership or entity of their operations or business.

(2) When the department receives such a notice of termination of business or if it finds the licensee has ceased to do business, it may suspend the license by sending a written notice to the licensee at the last-known address on the records of the department. The department may then remove the license from its active files.

(3) Any person whose license has been temporarily suspended under this section may within two years from the date the department mailed its notice, file a written notice with the department again advising that such person is again engaged in the business covered by the license. After receiving the notice, if the department verifies the applicant is in compliance with the law and there has been no change in the entity or ownership, it shall reinstate the license.
