(225 ILCS 310/18) (from Ch. 111, par. 8218)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2027)
    Sec. 18. Recommendations for disciplinary action; Action by Director. The Board may advise the Director that probation be granted or that other disciplinary action, including the limitation of the use of the title, be taken, as it deems proper. If disciplinary action other than suspension or revocation is taken, the Board may advise the Director to impose reasonable limitations and requirements upon the registrant to insure compliance with the terms of the probation or other disciplinary action, including, but not limited to, regular reporting by the registrant to the Director of his actions, or the registrant placing himself under the care of a qualified physician for treatment, or limiting his use of the title in such manner as the Director may require.
    The Board shall present to the Director a written report of its findings and recommendations. A copy of the report shall be served upon the registrant, either personally or by registered or certified mail. Within 20 days after such service, the registrant may present to the Department his motion in writing for a rehearing, specifying the particular grounds for rehearing. If the registrant orders and pays for a transcript of the record, the time elapsing until the transcript is ready for delivery to him shall not be counted as part of such 20 days.
    At the expiration of the time allowed for filing a motion for rehearing, the Director may take the action recommended by the Board. Upon suspension, revocation, placement on probationary status, or the taking of any other disciplinary action, including the limiting of the use of the title, deemed proper by the Director with regard to the registration, the registrant shall surrender his certificate of registration to the Department if ordered to do so by the Department. Upon his failure or refusal to do so, the Department may seize the certificate of registration.
    In all instances in which the Board has rendered a recommendation to the Director with respect to a particular person, the Director shall, to the extent that he disagrees with or takes action contrary to the recommendation of the Board, file with the Board his specific written reasons of disagreement. Such reasons shall be filed within 30 days after the Director has taken the contrary position.
    Each order of revocation, suspension, or other disciplinary action shall contain a brief and concise statement of the ground or grounds upon which the Department's action is based, as well as the specific terms and conditions of such action.
    Whenever the Director is satisfied that substantial justice has not been done either in an examination or in the revocation, suspension, or refusal to issue a certificate of registration, or other disciplinary action, the Director may order a re-examination or rehearing.
