§ 251-z-4. Exemptions. In addition to the exemptions specified in
subdivision three of section two hundred fifty-one-z-two, the
commissioner may, if he determines that the protection of the consumers
of the state as a whole will not be impaired by such action, provide by
regulation for exemption from licensing of small food processing
establishments when he finds that such exemptions would avoid
unnecessary regulation and assist in the administration of this article
without impairing its purposes. Regulations defining such exemptions may
classify exempted establishments with respect to the volume and types of
food handled, the types of processing involved, or with respect to any
other factor or combination thereof which bear a reasonable relation to
the purposes of this article. Such exemptions may be conditioned upon
requirements relating to sanitation, record keeping and reporting as the
commissioner may require.
