 (a)  If an applicant for a manufacturer license holds a similar license in another jurisdiction in the United States, the applicant may submit with its application required under §  427a.2(a) (relating to manufacturer license applications and standards) a request for the Board to adopt an abbreviated licensing process under section 1319 of the act (relating to alternative manufacturer licensing standards).

 (b)  The Board may use the abbreviated process if:

   (1)  The Board determines, after investigation, that the licensing standards in the jurisdiction in which the applicant is licensed are similarly comprehensive, thorough and provide equal, if not greater, safeguards as provided in the act and that granting the request is in the public interest.

   (2)  The applicant has provided a copy of its most recent application or renewal for the similar license in the other jurisdiction and a copy of the license or the order issued by the other jurisdiction granting the license.

   (3)  The applicant has no administrative or enforcement actions pending in another jurisdiction or the applicant has adequately disclosed and explained the action to the satisfaction of the Board.

   (4)  There are no pending or ongoing investigations of the applicant in another jurisdiction which may render the applicant unsuitable or the applicant has adequately disclosed and explained the investigation to the satisfaction of the Board.

 (c)  This section may not be construed to waive fees associated with obtaining a license through the application process in this Commonwealth.
