Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

240 ILCS 10/5

    (240 ILCS 10/5) (from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 123)
    Sec. 5. Inspections. Upon the filing of an application, the Commission shall cause an inspection to be made of each warehouse described in the application. Additional inspections of any warehouse may be made from time to time as the Commission deems necessary, in order to effectuate the purposes of this Act.
    Such inspection or inspections may include not only the building or premises used for storage purposes but the arrangement of the goods stored, nature of goods stored, safety of the building, accessibility to goods stored, precaution against fire hazards; whether fire extinguishers, fire apparatus, or hose are in good condition; whether all lots for which warehouse receipts have been issued are in storage; and any other things necessary to determine whether the warehouse is being operated in compliance with this Act. Commission staff shall have the right to enter the property of any warehouseman at any reasonable time, for the purpose of making an inspection or performing any duties in connection with this Act.
    If the inspection of any warehouse discloses a hazardous condition or conditions or any other violation of this Act or the Commission's rules, the operator shall, upon written notice from the Commission, take proper and immediate steps to correct the condition or conditions. Failure to comply with the notice shall be grounds for rejecting an application or for revoking a license.
