AN ACT to amend the general business law, in relation to crane operators

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Subdivision 1 of section 482 of the general business law,
as amended by section 18 of part CC of chapter 57 of the laws  of  2009,
is amended to read as follows:
  1.  No  individual shall use lasers, operate a crane, act as a blaster
or as a pyrotechnician without holding a valid certificate of competence
issued by the commissioner of labor.  PROVIDED THAT FOR CRANE OPERATORS,
SUCH CERTIFICATION OF COMPETENCE SHALL BE AWARDED PURSUANT TO A  CERTIF-
ICATION  PROCESS  OF  THE  NATIONAL  COMMISSION FOR THE CERTIFICATION OF
CRANE OPERATORS OR ANY OTHER ORGANIZATION FOUND BY THE  COMMISSIONER  TO
OFFER  AN  EQUIVALENT  TESTING  AND  CERTIFICATION  PROGRAM  MEETING THE
REQUIREMENTS OF THE APPROPRIATE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERS
ASME B30 STANDARD AND THE ACCREDITATION  REQUIREMENTS  OF  THE  NATIONAL
COMMISSION  FOR  CERTIFYING  AGENCIES OR THE AMERICAN NATIONAL STANDARDS
INSTITUTE. SUCH CERTIFICATION SHALL BE VALID ONLY IN  THE  SPECIALTY  OR
SPECIALTIES FOR WHICH SUCH OPERATOR IS CERTIFIED.
  S  2.    Subdivision  2 of section 483 of the general business law, as
amended by section 19 of part CC of chapter 57 of the laws of  2009,  is
amended to read as follows:
  2.  Such  regulations  may  provide  for  examinations,  categories of
certificates, licenses, or registrations, age  and  experience  require-
ments,  payment  of  fees, and may also provide for such limitations and
exemptions as the commissioner finds necessary and proper. In  the  case
of  blasters  and  pyrotechnicians, such regulations may require finger-
printing, and in the case of users of radioactive material,  such  regu-
lations  may require the posting of a bond or other security, AND IN THE
