Cite as: Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code §17511.3.
(a)Not less than 10 days prior to doing business in this state, a telephonic seller shall register with the department by filing with the Consumer Law Section of the department the information required by Section 17511.4 and a filing fee of fifty dollars ($50). A seller shall be deemed to do business in this state if the seller solicits prospective purchasers from locations in this state or solicits prospective purchasers who are located in this state.
A person claiming an exemption pursuant to paragraph (19) of subdivision (d) of Section 17511.1 shall file with the Consumer Law Section of the department, in lieu of the information required by subdivisions (a) to (o), inclusive, of Section 17511. 4, the information required by subdivision (p) of Section 17511.4 and a filing fee of fifty dollars ($50).
The information required by Section 17511.4 shall be submitted on a form provided by the Attorney General and shall be verified by a declaration signed by each principal of the telephonic seller under penalty of perjury. The declaration shall specify the date and location of signing. Information submitted pursuant to subdivision (j) or (k) of Section 17511.4 shall be clearly identified and appended to the filing. The information submitted pursuant to Section 17511.4 shall become part of the investigatory records and intelligence information compiled by the department for law enforcement purposes.
(b)Registration of a telephonic seller shall be valid for one year from the effective date thereof and may be annually renewed by making the filing required by Section 17511.4 and paying a filing fee of fifty dollars ($50).
(c)Whenever, prior to expiration of a seller’s annual registration, there is a material change in the information required by Section 17511.4, the seller shall, within 10 days, file an addendum updating the information with the Consumer Law Section of the department. However, changes in salespersons soliciting on behalf of a seller shall be updated by addendums filed, if necessary, in quarterly intervals computed from the effective date of registration. The addendum shall provide the required information for all salespersons who are currently soliciting or have solicited on behalf of the seller at any time during the period between the filing of the registration, or the last addendum, and the current addendum, and shall include salespersons no longer soliciting for the seller as of the date of the filing of the current addendum.
(d)Upon receipt of a filing and filing fee pursuant to subdivision (a) or (b), the department shall send the telephonic seller a written confirmation of receipt of the filing. If the seller has more than one business location, the written confirmation shall be sent to the principal business location identified in the seller’s filing in sufficient number so that the seller has receipt of filing, within 10 days of receipt thereof, in a conspicuous place at each of the seller’s business locations and shall have available for inspection by any governmental agency at each location a copy of the entire registration statement which has been filed with the department. Until confirmation of receipt of filing is received and posted, the seller shall post in a conspicuous place at each of the seller’s business locations within this state a copy of the first page of the registration form sent to the department. The seller shall also post in close proximity to either the confirmation of receipt of filing, or until the confirmation is received, the first page of the submitted registration form, the name of the individual or individuals in charge of each location from which the seller does business in this state, as defined in subdivision (a).
