Section: Manufacturer's report to commissioner relative to implementation of mercury minimization plan.
7. a. One year after the implementation of a mercury minimization plan approved pursuant to section 5 of this act, and annually thereafter, a manufacturer subject to section 4 of this act shall, individually or as part of a group, report to the commissioner concerning the implementation of the mercury minimization plan. The report shall include, but need not be limited to, the following: (1) a detailed description and documentation of the capture rate achieved, with the goal of achieving a mercury switch capture rate of at least 90 percent, consistent with the principle that mercury switches shall be recovered unless the mercury switch is inaccessible due to significant damage to the end-of-life vehicle in the area surrounding where the mercury switch is located; (2) a description of additional or alternative actions that may be implemented to improve the mercury minimization plan and its implementation in the event that a mercury switch capture rate of at least 90 percent is not achieved; (3) the number of mercury switches collected, the number of end-of-life vehicles containing mercury switches, the number of end-of-life vehicles processed for recycling, and a description of how the mercury switches were managed; and (4) a description of the amounts paid to cover the costs of implementing the mercury minimization plan.
b. The commissioner may discontinue the requirement for the annual report pursuant to subsection a. of this section upon a finding that mercury switches in end-of-life vehicles no longer pose a significant threat to the environment or to public health.
