(2) The Attorney General may not include or retain in the directory the name or brand families of any nonparticipating manufacturer that fails to provide the required certification or whose certification the Attorney General determines is not in compliance with ORS 180.410 (Tobacco product manufacturer's certification) and 180.415 (Contents of certification), unless the Attorney General has determined that the violation has been cured to the satisfaction of the Attorney General. The Attorney General shall adopt rules defining the criteria by which the Attorney General will exercise the discretion granted by this subsection.
(3) The Attorney General may not include or retain in the directory a nonparticipating manufacturer or a brand family if the Attorney General concludes that:
(a) Any escrow payment required from the nonparticipating manufacturer pursuant to ORS 323.806 (Required actions by manufacturers) for any period for any brand family, whether listed or not listed by the nonparticipating manufacturer, has not been fully paid into a qualified escrow fund governed by a qualified escrow agreement that has been approved by the Attorney General; or
(b) Any outstanding final judgment, including interest thereon, for a violation of ORS 323.806 (Required actions by manufacturers) has not been fully satisfied for the brand family or the nonparticipating manufacturer.
(4) The Attorney General shall update the directory in order to correct mistakes and to add or remove a tobacco product manufacturer or a brand family to keep the directory in conformity with the requirements of this section. The Attorney General shall update the directory with new brand families upon receipt of an annual or supplemental certification listing new brand families if the Attorney General determines that the annual or supplemental certification is in compliance with the requirements of ORS 180.410 (Tobacco product manufacturer's certification) and 180.415 (Contents of certification). The Attorney General shall make the determination about compliance within 45 days of receipt of the certification.
