Part 4. Sale of Specific Commodities

Bulk Deliveries Sold In Terms Of Weight And Delivered By Vehicle

30-12-406. Bulk deliveries sold in terms of weight and delivered by vehicle. (1) When a vehicle delivers to an individual purchaser a commodity in bulk and the commodity is sold in terms of weight units, the delivery must be accompanied by a duplicate delivery ticket with the following information clearly stated in ink or by means of other indelible marking equipment and in clarity equal to type or printing:

(a) the name and address of the vendor;

(b) the name and address of the purchaser;

(c) the net weight of the delivery expressed in pounds; and

(d) if the net weight was determined by split weighing pursuant to 30-12-107 or 30-12-306.

(2) If the net weight is derived from determinations of gross and tare weights, the gross and tare weights must also be stated in terms of pounds. One of the delivery tickets must be retained by the vendor, and the other must be delivered to the purchaser at the time of delivery of the commodity or must be surrendered on demand to the department. If the department desires to retain it as evidence, the department shall issue a weight slip in place of the ticket for delivery to the purchaser. If the purchaser carries away the purchase, the vendor is only required to give to the purchaser at the time of sale a delivery ticket stating the number of pounds of commodity delivered to the purchaser.
