Receipt Forms


(a)

A warehouse operator shall use one set of serially numbered and sequentially issued receipts for all warehouses operated under a single license. In addition to a unique serial number, each receipt form must contain all of the information prescribed by department rule. If further provided by department rule, the warehouse operator shall request the receipt forms from the printer on a form approved, prescribed, or furnished by the department.

(b)

The warehouse operator shall provide the department with an exemplar of the receipt forms and an affidavit from the printer showing the number of receipts printed and their serial numbers before issuing any receipt from the printed set. The exemplar and affidavit required by this subsection shall be provided each time a new set of receipts is printed.

(c)

The warehouse operator may use an electronic receipt system if the provider of the electronic receipt system has been approved by the department or by the United States Department of Agriculture or any other federal agency that issues a license for the operation of a public grain warehouse.

(d)

The department may require a warehouse operator to provide a bond to cover any loss resulting from unlawful use of a receipt. The department shall determine the form and the amount of the bond, but the amount may not exceed $5,000.
