Primary smelters, secondary smelters and battery manufacturers are required to complete compliance plans under 1910. 1025(e)(3)(ii)(B) and (E) by July 1, 1984, using information in their possession. They are further required to come into full compliance with paragraphs (e)(3)(ii)(B) and (E) by August 1, 1984.
