25-2709.  Inspection, sampling, analysis. (1) For the purpose of enforcement of this chapter, and in order to determine whether its provisions have been complied with, including whether or not any operations may be subject to such provisions, officers or employees duly designated by the director upon presenting appropriate credentials, to the owner, operator, or agent in charge, are authorized:
(a)  To enter, during normal business hours, any factory, warehouse, or establishment within the state in which commercial feeds are manufactured, processed, packed, or held for distribution, or to enter any vehicle being used to transport or hold such feeds, and
(b)  To inspect, at reasonable times and within reasonable limits and in a reasonable manner, such factory, warehouse, establishment or vehicle and all pertinent equipment, finished and unfinished materials, containers, and labeling therein.
The inspection may include the verification of only such records, and production and control procedures as may be necessary to determine compliance with the good manufacturing practice regulations established under the provisions of this chapter. Each inspection shall be commenced and completed with reasonable promptness. Upon completion of the inspection, the person in charge of the facility or vehicle shall be so notified.
(2)  A separate notice shall be given for each inspection, but a notice shall not be required for each entry made during the period covered by the inspection.
(3)  If the office or employee making inspection of a factory, warehouse or other establishment has obtained a sample or samples in the course of the inspection, upon completion of the inspection and prior to leaving the premises, the inspector/sampler shall give to the owner, operator or agent in charge a receipt describing any sample or samples obtained.
(4)  Sampling and analysis shall be conducted in accordance with methods published by the association of official analytical chemists, or in accordance with other generally recognized methods.
(5)  The director, in determining for administrative purposes whether a commercial feed is deficient in any component, shall be guided by the official sample as defined in subsection (18) of section 25-2703, Idaho Code, and obtained and analyzed as provided for in this section.
(6)  If the owner of any factory, warehouse, or establishment described in subsection (1) of this section, or authorized agent, refuses to admit the director or an authorized agent to inspect in accordance with subsections (1) and (7) of this section, the director is authorized to obtain from any state court of competent jurisdiction a warrant directing such owner or agent to submit the premises described in such warrant to inspection.
(7)  For the enforcement of this chapter, the director or a duly authorized agent is authorized to enter upon any public or private premises including any vehicle of transport during regular business hours to have access to, and to obtain samples, and to examine and make copies of records relating to distribution of commercial feeds.
(8)  The results of all analyses of official samples shall be forwarded by the director to the registrant and to the purchaser. When the inspection and analysis of an official sample indicate a commercial feed has been adulterated or misbranded and upon request by the registrant or purchaser within thirty (30) days following the receipt of the analysis the director shall furnish to the registrant a portion of the sample concerned.
