39. At the request of the certified association, the Board may, by an order which comes into force on the date of its publication in the Gazette officielle du Québec or on any later date indicated therein, compel any person, other than a consumer, who buys or receives a farm product from a producer, to withhold from the price or value of such product to be paid to the producer, the amount of the assessment fixed in accordance with section 31 and remit it to the certified association at the time and in the manner prescribed in such order, along with a report mentioning the name and address of the producer from whom such assessment was withheld and the other information contemplated in such order.
Any person neglecting to comply with the preceding paragraph shall become personally liable to the certified association for amounts he should have withheld or remitted to it.
The Board, in making an order under the first paragraph, may fix and adjust the rate of interest exigible where the person contemplated is late in remitting a contribution to the certified association.
