(a) The Secretary, as he or she deems necessary, may inspect nursery stock in the possession of a nursery grower or nursery dealer licensed under section 4024 of this title or any place within the State where nursery stock is grown, collected, stored, sold, offered for sale, or distributed. After the inspection of a licensed nursery grower or nursery dealer, the Secretary may issue an inspection certificate.
(b) The Secretary shall charge a fee for any inspection of a nursery grower or nursery dealer that is not licensed under section 4024 of this title. The Secretary shall charge a fee for an inspection of a nursery dealer or nursery grower licensed under section 4024 of this title, provided that the initial inspection of a licensed nursery grower or nursery dealer in any calendar year shall be at no cost. The amount of the inspection fee shall be the same fee as that charged for a nursery dealer's license as required by section 4024 of this title. The Secretary shall not charge an inspection fee when responding to consumer complaints or for technical assistance under section 1036 of this title for the management of plant pests, as that term is defined in section 1030 of this title.
