5. a. Within 120 days after receipt of a mercury minimization plan, the commissioner shall approve, disapprove, or conditionally approve the entire mercury minimization plan. The commissioner may solicit input from representatives of vehicle recyclers, scrap recycling facilities, and other stakeholders as the commissioner deems appropriate. (1) If the entire mercury minimization plan is approved, the manufacturer shall begin implementation within 30 days after receipt of approval or as otherwise agreed to by the commissioner. If the entire mercury minimization plan is disapproved, the commissioner shall inform the manufacturer as to the reasons for the disapproval. The manufacturer shall have 30 days thereafter to submit a new mercury minimization plan. (2) The commissioner may approve those parts of a mercury minimization plan that meet the requirements of section 4 of this act and disapprove the parts that do not comply with the requirements of section 4 of this act. The manufacturer shall implement the approved parts within 30 days after receipt of approval or as otherwise agreed to by the commissioner, and submit a revised mercury minimization plan for the disapproved parts within 30 days after receipt of notification of the disapproval of the commissioner. The commissioner shall review, and approve, conditionally approve, or disapprove a revised mercury minimization plan within 30 days after receipt. (3) If, at the conclusion of the time period of 120 days after receipt of a mercury minimization plan, the commissioner has neither approved nor disapproved the mercury minimization plan pursuant to paragraph (1) or (2) of this subsection, the mercury minimization plan shall be considered to be conditionally approved. A manufacturer, subject to any modifications required by the commissioner, shall implement a conditionally approved mercury minimization plan within 30 days after receipt of approval or as otherwise agreed to by the commissioner. b. The commissioner shall reserve the right to complete, at the conclusion of a time period 240 days after the date of enactment of this act, on behalf of a manufacturer, any portion of a mercury minimization plan that has not been approved pursuant to this section. c.
