(7) If a manufacturer has certified a cigarette pursuant to this section, and thereafter makes any change to the cigarette that is likely to alter its compliance with the reduced cigarette ignition propensity standards required in this chapter, that cigarette shall not be sold or offered for sale in this state until the manufacturer retests the cigarette in accordance with the testing standards set forth in section 39-8903, Idaho Code, and maintains records of that retesting as required by section 39-8903, Idaho Code. Any altered cigarette which does not meet the performance standard set forth in section 39-8903, Idaho Code, may not be sold in this state.
