8. At the end of each period of three consecutive calendar years, the Minister establishes, not later than 1 September following that period, the number of credits accumulated by a motor vehicle manufacturer for each of the three model years that corresponds to one of the three calendar years concerned.
The credits accumulated by a motor vehicle manufacturer through the sale or lease of a motor vehicle referred to in paragraph 2 of section 6 are considered, for the purposes of this section, to have been accumulated for the model year, among those referred to in the first paragraph, that corresponds to the calendar year during which it was sold or leased for the first time in Québec.
A motor vehicle manufacturer that has not accumulated the number of credits required to fulfill its obligations under this Act or the regulations must, within three months after the Minister sends a notice of claim, pay to the Minister a charge whose parameters, calculation method, conditions and terms of payment are determined by government regulation.
The Government determines, by regulation, the value of a credit for the purpose of calculating the charge.
