identify the amount of any redemption payment imposed on beverage
containers pursuant to Section 14560 and the separate identification

not combine or include the gross wholesale price with the redemption
payment but shall separately state the gross amount of the redemption
payment for each type of container included in each delivery.
   (2) The invoice or other form of accounting of the transaction
submitted by any distributor of beer and malt beverages or wine or
distilled spirit coolers to a dealer may separately identify the

transaction may separately identify the portion of the gross
wholesale price attributable to the redemption payment.
   (3) Notwithstanding Section 14541, the department shall randomly
inspect beverage distributor invoices or other forms of accounting to
ensure compliance with this subdivision. However, an unintentional
error in addition or subtraction on an invoice or other form of
accounting by a route driver of a distributor shall not be deemed a
violation of this subdivision.
   (4) For the purposes of this subdivision, the term "type of
container" includes the amount of the redemption payment on

   (b) To the extent technically and economically feasible, a dealer
may separately identify the amount of any redemption payment on the
customer cash register receipt provided to the consumer, by the
dealer, that is applied to the purchase of a beverage container.
   (c) (1) A dealer shall separately identify the amount of any
redemption payment imposed on a beverage container in all advertising
of beverage products and on the shelf labels of the dealer's
establishment. The separate identification shall be accomplished by

   (B) The price of the beverage product plus the amount of the
applicable redemption payment and a descriptive term, as described in

applicable redemption payment, a descriptive term, as described in
paragraph (2), and the total of these two amounts.
   (2) For purposes of paragraph (1), the redemption payment shall be
identified by one of the following descriptive terms: "California
Redemption Value," "CA Redemption Value," "CRV," "California Cash
Refund," "CA Cash Refund," or any other message specified in Section
14561.
   (3) A dealer shall not include the redemption payment in the total
price of a beverage container in any advertising or on the shelf of
the dealer's establishment.
   (4) This subdivision applies only to a dealer at a dealer location
with a sales and storage area totaling more than 4,000 square feet.
   (5) The penalties specified in Sections 14591 and 14591.1 shall
not be applied to a person who violates this subdivision.
   (d) With regard to the sale of beer and other malt beverages or
wine and distilled spirits cooler beverages, any amount of redemption
payment imposed by this division is subject to Section 25509 of the
Business and Professions Code.



14561.  (a) A beverage manufacturer shall clearly indicate on all
beverage containers sold or offered for sale by that beverage
manufacturer in this state the message "CA Redemption Value,"
"California Redemption Value," "CA Cash Refund," "California Cash
Refund," or "CA CRV," by either printing or embossing the beverage
container or by securely affixing a clear and prominent stamp, label,
or other device to the beverage container.
   (b) Any refillable beverage container sold or offered for sale is
exempt from this section. However, any beverage manufacturer or
container manufacturer may place upon, or affix to, a refillable
beverage container, any message that the manufacturer determines to
be appropriate relating to the refund value of the beverage
container.
   (c) A person shall not offer to sell, or sell to a consumer a
beverage container subject to subdivision (a) that has not been
labeled pursuant to this section, except for a refillable beverage

machine-readable indicia.

subdivision (a) shall have the minimum redemption payment established
pursuant to Section 14560, which shall be paid by the distributor to
the department pursuant to Section 14574.



14562.  The Legislature hereby finds and declares that the minimum
redemption payment established by this article is a regulatory fee
collected for the purpose of assuring the return for recycling of a
greater percentage of the beverage containers sold in this state, and
is beneficial to the beverage industry by assuring the more reliable
availability of raw materials. Accordingly, the payments of
redemption payments to the department for deposit in the California
Beverage Container Recycling Fund are not the "proceeds of taxes," as
that term is used in subdivision (c) of Section 8 of Article XIII B
of the California Constitution, and the disbursement or encumbrance
of money in the fund is not subject to the limitations imposed by
that article.
