An operator of a laser installation, unless otherwise exempted, shall register the installation with the Agency before the installation is placed in operation. The registration shall be filed annually on a form prescribed by the Agency. If any change occurs in a laser installation, the change or changes shall be registered with the Agency within 30 days. If registering a change in each source of laser radiation or the type or strength of each source of radiation is impractical, the Agency, upon request of the operator, may approve blanket registration of the installation. Laser installations registered with the Agency on the effective date of this Act shall retain their registration.
     Registration of a laser installation shall not imply approval of manufacture, storage, use, handling, operation, or disposal of laser systems or laser radiation, but shall serve merely as notice to the Agency of the location and character of radiation sources in this State.
