C. State Certification Insignia. In addition to the approved testing facility label and the manufacturer's data plate, each unit shall be marked by a State certification insignia secured from the Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation which shall identify the unit by State serial number. This serial number shall be the control number for location in the State.

D. Mounting of Labels and State Certification Insignias. To the extent practicable, the labels and insignias shall be so installed that they cannot be removed without being destroyed. They shall be applied in the vicinity of the electrical distribution panel or other location that is readily accessible for inspection.
