(805 ILCS 10/13.5)
Notice of violation.
Whenever the regulating authority has reason to believe a corporation has opened, operated, or maintained an establishment for any of the purposes for which a corporation may be organized under this Act without a certificate of registration from the regulating authority authorized by law to license individuals to engage in the profession or related professions, the regulating authority may issue a notice of violation to the corporation. The notice of violation shall provide a period of 30 days from the date of the notice to either file an answer to the satisfaction of the regulating authority or submit an application for registration in compliance with this Act, including payment of the $50 application fee and a late fee of $100 for each year that the corporation opened, operated, or maintained an establishment for any of the purposes for which a corporation may be organized under this Act without having been issued a certificate of registration, with a maximum late fee of $500. If the corporation that is the subject of the notice of violation fails to respond, fails to respond to the satisfaction of the regulating authority, or fails to submit an application for registration, the regulating authority may institute disciplinary proceedings against the corporation and may impose a civil penalty up to $1,000 for violation of this Act after affording the corporation a hearing in conformance with the requirements of this Act.
