It should be ready by now if dealer verify the repair. The fastest way is to do a dmtl leak test with bmw tester to get evap ready

My wife has a 2004 745i and I had to fill up the car and make sure the gas cap was tight. I made sure that she warmed the car up for 3 minutes before driving in the morning and did a highway run not going over 60 mph for a half and hour and then letting it sit idle for about 5 minutes in gear after getting off the highway.
That should do it.
