ATCP 10.52 Note Note: Only farm-raised deer keepers registered as individuals or married couples would have immediate family members eligible to be qualified CWD test sample collectors. Other types of legal entities do not have immediate family members.
ATCP 10.52(4)(ag) (ag) For persons eligible under par. (a) 1. and 4. for qualification as a test sample collector under this subsection, an application shall include a nonrefundable application fee of $50. The application fee is waived for persons eligible under par. (a) 2. and 3. All qualifications under this subsection expire on June 30, 2018, and every fifth year thereafter. Except as authorized under par. (ar), a person eligible as an employee of a farm-raised deer keeper may only be qualified by the department to perform sample collection for the employing farm-raised deer keeper, and may not collect test samples for any other farm-raised deer keeper. A person may reapply to be a qualified test sample collector after expiration by successfully completing a chronic wasting disease test sample collection training approved by the department, and submitting a nonrefundable application fee of $50.
ATCP 10.52(4)(ar) (ar) An employee of a registered farm-raised deer keeper who qualifies as a test sample collector may transfer that employee's qualification to perform sample collections to qualification on another farm-raised deer keeper's deer farm, if the new employing farm-raised deer keeper requests the transfer from the department.

A disqualified person may not collect test samples under sub. (1m). A disqualified person may later apply to be a qualified chronic wasting disease test sample collector only after successfully completing training offered or approved by the department.
ATCP 10.52 Note Note: A disqualified person may request a hearing on a disqualification under par. (b), pursuant to s. 227, Stats., and ch. ATCP 1. A request for a hearing does not automatically stay a summary disqualification.

ATCP 10.52(5) (5)Approved laboratories. Tests under sub. (1m) shall be performed at a laboratory that the department and the federal bureau have approved to conduct chronic wasting disease tests.
