(3) set each device so that if the driver fails the initial ignition interlock device test, a retest cannot be done for 15 minutes;
(4) set each device so that a rolling retest will be required of the driver of the vehicle within 10 minutes of starting the vehicle. Subsequent rolling retests shall occur as described in K.A.R. 92-56-1. The driver shall have five minutes to complete the retest. The free restart shall not be operative when the device is waiting for a rolling retest sample;

The manufacturer shall notify the division within seven days after a device has been serviced due to a lockout that occurred for any of the reasons specified in paragraph (b)(6)(D).
(d) The service provider shall enable each device’s anticircumvention features when installing a device and keep the features enabled during the ignition interlock device period. Within two business days, a service provider shall notify the division of any evidence of tampering or circumvention. The evidence shall be preserved by the manufacturer or the manufacturer’s representative until otherwise notified by the division.
(e) The division may conduct or have conducted independent checks on any of the approved ignition interlock devices to determine whether the devices are operating in a manner consistent with the manufacturer’s specifications, manufacturer’s certifications, or these regulations. The director may require the manufacturer or the manufacturer’s representative to correct any abnormality found in the installation, calibration, maintenance checks, or usage records of the device. The manufacturer and the manufacturer’s representative shall report in writing to the division within 30 days after receiving notification of any abnormality. In conducting these checks, the manufacturer shall install the device in a vehicle chosen by the division, and the manufacturer shall waive any costs to the division for the installation, calibration, or testing of the device.
