Secondhand Dealer Requirements
As a person, as defined under Section 1 of Public Act 11-100, who is applying for a license from the State of Connecticut Department of Emergency Services
and Public Protection (DESPP) to engage in or carry on the business of a Secondhand Dealer at the address listed above, you are required, if so licensed, to
comply with the requirements of Sections 10 through 11, inclusive, of Public Act 11-100, as well as the following requirements of the licensing authority,
the Commissioner of the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection:
The Commissioner of the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection will issue a Secondhand Dealer License for the specific business,
location and town or city for which you have applied. This license does not allow you to engage in or carry on the business of a secondhand dealer as any
other business, in any other location or in any other town or city. The Commissioner of DESPP may, after notice and hearing, suspend or revoke such
licenses for cause which shall include, but is not limited to, failure to comply with any requirements for licensure specified by the Commissioner of DESPP
at the time of issuance. Such license shall be displayed in a conspicuous location in the place where such business is carried on.
At the time of receipt of your license, you are required to file, with the Commissioner of DESPP, a bond, with competent surety, in the sum of ten thousand
dollars, to be approved by the Commissioner of DESPP and conditioned for the faithful performance of the duties and obligations pertaining to the
business so licensed.
During the term of such license, you shall notify the Commissioner of DESPP in writing of any additional places that will be used by the business for the
purchase, receipt, storage or sale of property prior to such use, of the addition or discontinuation of any Internet web sites or accounts used to conduct the
business and of the addition of any employees, officers, shareholders, financial backers or creditors or any other individual with a relationship to the entity
that is similar to that of an officer, shareholder, financial backer or creditor.
No secondhand dealer licensee shall take, receive or purchase tangible personal property without receiving and copying proof of the identity of the person
selling the property if such person is not a wholesaler. Such identification shall include a photograph, an address, if available on the identification, and an
identifying number, including, but not limited to, date of birth. No secondhand dealer licensee may purchase any personal property from a minor unless
such minor is accompanied by such minor's parent or guardian and the identification of such parent or guardian copied as if they were the person that the
property was received or purchased from.
You are required to maintain a computerized record-keeping system deemed appropriate by the Commissioner of DESPP. Entries shall be entered in
English, at the time the person acting under this license purchases any article of personal property, a description of such article and the current location
that it is stored and the name, the residence address, the proof of identity as required by this section and a general description of the person from whom,
and the date and hour when, such property was purchased and in which, if the property does not contain any identifiable numbers or markings, shall be
included a digital photograph of such article. Each entry in such record-keeping system shall be numbered consecutively.
A tag shall be attached to the article in a visible and convenient place with a number written on such tag corresponding to the entry number in the record-
keeping system and shall remain attached to the article until the article is sold or otherwise disposed of. The Commissioner of DESPP authorizes the
removal of such tags from certain articles such as jewelry for the purposed of cleaning and repair, while the article is being cleaned or repaired on the
premises by the licensee only after an entry is first made into the computerized record-keeping system of such removal and only when such removal is
necessary to prevent destruction of the such tag or when it interferes with the ability to clean or repair the article. A subsequent entry into the record-
keeping system shall be made upon the return of such tag onto such item. Such tag shall be visible in the digital photograph of such item.
Such record-keeping system and the place where such business is carried on and all articles of property therein may be examined at all times by any state
police officer or municipal police officer. Any state police officer or municipal police officer who performs such an examination may require any employee
on the premises to provide proof of the employee’s identity. All records maintained within this record-keeping system shall be retained by you for not less
than two years.
The description of any property purchased by any secondhand dealer licensee shall be entered into the computerized record-keeping system deemed
appropriate by the Commissioner of DESPP and shall include, but shall not be limited to, all distinguishing marks, names of any kind, including brand and
model names, model and serial numbers, engravings, etchings, affiliation with any institution or organization, dates, initials, color, vintage or image
represented. Any description of audio, video or electronic media of any kind shall also include the title and artist or any other identifying information
contained on the cover or external surface of such media.
