(a) An amusement ride may not be operated unless the operator or the operator's designee submits notification to the department at least 30 days before the ride operates in the state for the first time. The notification must

(1) be in writing;

(2) identify the ride or structure;

(3) specify the intended dates of operation and location of use; and

(4) be mailed, faxed or hand delivered to the department's mechanical inspection section.

(b) The department will inspect the ride or will designate a National Association of Amusement Ride Safety Officials (NAARSO) Level II Inspector to inspect the ride. An inspector designated under this subsection shall file a copy of the inspection report with the department for review. Upon review, the department will accept, reject, or modify that report. The ride may not be placed in service to the public until the department certifies the ride as being in compliance with the requirements of this chapter.

(c) After a ride is certified under (b) of this section, the operator of an amusement ride or the operator's designee shall ensure that an amusement ride is inspected at least annually by the department or a NAARSO Level II Inspector designated by the department. An inspector designated under this subsection shall file a copy of the inspection report with the department for review. Upon review, the department will accept, reject, or modify that report. Any condition found during an inspection that poses a present danger or is not in compliance with the ride manufacturer's specifications must be corrected before a passenger is permitted to ride.

(d) At any reasonable time, the department may inspect an amusement ride, and the operator shall assist with the inspection upon request.

(e) If the department issues an order under AS 05.20.030 (2) to prohibit the operation of an amusement ride, the operator shall immediately stop operation of the ride. The operator may not re-open the ride to public use until the repairs or corrections are made and the department approves its operation.
