(1)Not less than ten days prior to doing business in this state, a telephonic seller shall register with the Department of Justice by filing the information required by OAR 137-020-0202 (Filing Information) and a filing fee of $400. 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.
(2)The information required by OAR 137-020-0202 (Filing Information) shall be submitted on a form provided by the Department of Justice 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 137-020-0202 (Filing Information)(12) or (13) shall be clearly identified and appended to the filing.
(3)Registration of a telephonic seller shall be valid one year from the effective date thereof and may be annually renewed by making the filing required by OAR 137-020-0202 (Filing Information) and paying a filing fee of $400.
(4)Whenever, prior to expiration of a seller’s annual registration, there is a material change in the information required by OAR 137-020-0202 (Filing Information), the seller shall, within ten days, file an addendum updating the information with the Department of Justice. However, changes in salespersons soliciting on behalf of a seller shall be updated by addenda 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.
(5)Upon receipt of a filing and filing fee pursuant to section (1) or (3) of this rule, 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 one for each business location. The seller shall post the confirmation of receipt of filing, within ten 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 OAR 137-020-0200 (Definitions)(2).
