Take notice that the Division of Consumer Affairs has discovered errors in the text of N.J.A.C. 13:44E-2.2(d)1, 3 and 5. These paragraphs were adopted effective August 19, 1991 (see 23 N.J.R. 391(a) and 2515(a)) and have not been amended since their initial adoption. However, in the production of the 8-6-01 Code update, which reflected amendments to paragraphs (d)2 and 4, the text of paragraphs (d)1, 3 and 5 was inadvertently deleted and replaced with duplicates of the texts paragraphs (c)1, 3 and 5, respectively. Through this notice, published pursuant to N.J.A.C. 1:30-2.7, the text of paragraphs (d)1, 3 and 5 is corrected.
