(e) If the Department receives a certification that, upon review, does not include all of the information required by this Article, the Department will notify the product manufacturer and state what additional information or documentation is required. The product manufacturer will then have 30 calendar days after receipt of the notice to provide the required information or documentation. One 30-calendar day extension may be granted for cause by the Department upon request.
(f) At any time, the Department may request information from a product manufacturer outside of any notice of incomplete certification. In such cases, the Department shall mail a written request, and the product manufacturer shall have 60 calendar days following the date of receipt of the request to supply the information.
