in each succeeding year that the person continues the business in this state, not later than the anniversary of the initial filing.


The initial registration statement and each annual registration statement must be accompanied by a fee prescribed by the executive commissioner by rule.


The department, after notice and hearing, may refuse to register or may cancel, revoke, or suspend the registration of a person who manufactures, imports, repacks, or distributes a hazardous substance if the person fails to comply with the requirements of this chapter.


A hazardous substance is subject to seizure and disposition under Section 501.033 (Seizure and Disposition of Banned or Misbranded Hazardous Substance) if the person who manufactures, imports, repacks, or distributes the hazardous substance does not, after notice by the department, register with the department and make timely payment of the fee under this section.
