Common Violations of the Act: Failure to Respond to the Board

The Enforcement Program seeks to thoroughly investigate each complaint received by the Board in an expeditious manner. However, the investigation process is often delayed when subjects do not promptly provide the Board with requested information or evidence, or fail to respond to the Board’s written requests.

Whenever the Board is conducting an investigation, licensees and candidates are required to respond to the Board’s requests for information and/or evidence within 30 days, as stated in California Code of Regulations section 160(b)(2).
