(from Ch. 111, par. 8214)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2027)
Investigations; Notice of hearing.
Upon the motion of
either the Department or the Board, or upon the verified complaint in
writing of any person setting forth facts which, if proven, would
constitute grounds for refusal, suspension, or revocation of registration
under this Act, the Board shall investigate the actions of any person,
hereinafter called the "registrant", who holds or represents that he holds
a certificate of registration. All such motions or complaints shall be
brought to the Board.
The Director shall, before suspending, revoking, placing on probationary
status, or taking any other disciplinary action as the Director may deem
proper with regard to any registration, at least 30 days prior to the date
set for the hearing, notify the registrant in writing of any charges made
and the time and place for a hearing on the charges before the Board. The
Board shall also direct the registrant to file his written answer to the
charges with the Board under oath within 20 days after the service on him
of such notice, and inform him that if he fails to file such answer, his
certificate of registration may be suspended, revoked, placed on
probationary status or other disciplinary action may be taken with regard
thereto, as the Director may deem proper.
The written notice and any notice in such proceeding may be
served by delivery personally to the registrant, by email, or by registered or
certified mail to the address specified by the registrant in his last
notification to the Director.
The Department, at its expense, shall preserve a record of all
proceedings at the formal hearing of any case involving the refusal to
issue or renew a registration, or discipline of a registrant. The notice
of hearing, complaint, and all other documents in the nature of pleadings
and written motions filed in the proceedings, the transcript of testimony,
the report of the Board, and the orders of the Department shall be the
record of such proceedings.
