Certification requirements for contractors shall commence 6 months after adoption of regulations.

(e) Certification shall be valid for 2 years. The fee for certification shall be $250 for companies and $100 for on-site supervisors. Fees collected are appropriated to the Department to carry out the purposes of the Underground Storage Tank Program.
