After the notification form is received by the department, a receipt will be emailed to the sender so the driver will have paperwork to show that the department has been notified of the shipment, and if payment has been made, this will be indicated as well.
For high-level shipments, highway route controlled quantity shipments, spent nuclear fuel or transuranic material shipments, notification and fee payment should be received at least seven days prior to the shipment entering the state.

While the statute specifies the shipper is ultimately responsible for payment of the fee, carriers may accept responsibility for the fee on behalf of their clients.
The statute also authorizes the department to accept annual payment of fees, but implementation of this feature is on hold until regulations can be established regarding annual payments.
