(a) Each motor vehicle recycler licensee shall maintain a suitable office and keep accurate records of all motor vehicles or major component parts thereof received, dismantled or sold. Such records may be handwritten, typewritten or computer-generated. Such records, vehicles and parts shall be available for inspection during regular business hours by one or more representatives of the Department of Motor Vehicles, the Division of State Police within the Department of Public Safety or any organized local police department. Such inspection shall include examination of the recycler's premises to determine the accuracy of the required records. Such records shall include the make, year, engine number, if any, and identification number of each vehicle, the name and address of the person from whom each vehicle or part was received and to whom each vehicle or part was sold, if a sale occurred, and the date of such receipt and sale. The records shall be maintained for a period of two years after each receipt or sale. Twice a month, each such licensee shall mail to the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles a list of all motor vehicles received, stating the make, year, engine number, if any, and identification number of each such vehicle. The list, on a form approved by the commissioner, shall be mailed or delivered to the commissioner on or before the twentieth day of each month, covering the first fifteen days of that month, and on or before the fifth day of each month, covering the sixteenth through the last day of the preceding month. A recycler shall report the information contained on such lists to the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System under 49 USC Section 30504. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to require the department to report any of such information to said title information system. (1089)

(b) No motor vehicle recycler licensee may receive a motor vehicle unless the licensee receives the vehicle's certificate of title, if the vehicle is required to have title, or a copy of the vehicle's certificate of title made by an insurance company pursuant to section 14-16c, at the time of receipt of the vehicle. Upon receipt of any such certificate or copy, such licensee shall stamp on it the word "JUNKED" in one-inch-high letters not to exceed three inches in length. Any certificate of title received, other than a title acquired for use in connection with the licensee's business, shall accompany the list sent pursuant to subsection (a) of this section. Any such copy received shall be maintained for as long as the junk is on the licensee's premises. If the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles determines that information concerning junked motor vehicles required to be reported by a licensee to the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System under 49 USC Sections 30501 to 30505, inclusive, and 28 CFR Sections 25.51 to 25.57, inclusive, is available to the department on a regular basis from the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System, the commissioner may discontinue the requirement that a licensee submit to the department (1) a list of vehicles or parts received, in accordance with the provisions of subsection (a) of this section, and (2) certificates of title or copies of such certificates, in accordance with the provisions of this subsection. (1090)

(c) The Commissioner of Motor Vehicles may adopt regulations in accordance with chapter 54, concerning the records required by this section. (1091)

Such plates as are issued to a licensee may be used in connection with such licensee's business for the purpose of towing vehicles to such licensee's place of business, for use on the vehicle being towed, for use on commercial vehicles carrying motor vehicles or parts thereof to such licensee's place of business for the purpose of dismantling, and for carrying parts of motor vehicles or motor vehicle scrap from such place of business to the place of sale or disposition. The licensee may use such plates for personal use on vehicles owned by such licensee. (1094)

(b) A motor vehicle recycler licensee may apply to the commissioner for a general distinguishing number and number plate for the purpose of displaying such number plate on a motor vehicle being towed in connection with such licensee's business.
