The registration fee each year is $2,500 to be paid on or before January 31 of each year, starting January 31, 2013. A manufacturer's failure to properly or timely register does not exempt the manufacturer from such fee and payment requirements.

  (4) The registration or registration renewal must include:

  (2) Notice of any change or additional information must be submitted on the appropriate agency form that has been completed in accordance with this section.

  (3) Notice of any change or additional information must be submitted to the executive director within 30 days from the date of the occurrence of the change or addition.

(c) Required Form for Providing Manufacturer's Registration Information.

  (1) Manufacturers shall provide the required information on the current agency registration form or approved electronic submission.

  (2) The manufacturer is responsible for ensuring that the registration form is fully complete and accurate. The form must be dated and signed by the manufacturer or a legally authorized representative of the manufacturer, and must be submitted to the agency in accordance with the time frames established in this chapter.

  (3) When any of the required manufacturer's registration information submitted to the executive director is determined to be incomplete or inaccurate (including illegible or unclear information), the executive director may require the manufacturer to submit additional information. A manufacturer shall submit any such required additional information within 30 days of receipt of such request.

(d) Except as provided by §328.175 of this title, not later than January 31 of each year, each registered television manufacturer of covered television equipment shall report to the commission:

  (1) the total weight of covered television equipment for which the television manufacturer is responsible that was sold in this state during the preceding calendar year or, if the manufacturer does not track the weight of covered television equipment it sells by state, the television manufacturer may report the total weight of covered television equipment the television manufacturer sold nationally in the preceding calendar year;

  (2) the total weight of covered television equipment the television manufacturer collected, recycled, and reused in this state during the preceding calendar year; and

  (3) documentation that the collection, reuse, and recycling of the collected covered television equipment complies with §328.193 of this title (relating to Management of Collected Television Equipment).
