Violations of our requirements, rules, or standards.
When we have evidence that a representative fails to meet our qualification requirements or has violated the rules governing dealings with us, we may begin proceedings to suspend or disqualify that individual from acting in a representational capacity before us.

(b) Has violated the affirmative duties or engaged in the prohibited actions set forth in § 404.1740 ;
(c) Has been convicted of a violation under section 206 of the Act;

(e) Has been, by reason of misconduct, disqualified from participating in or appearing before any Federal program or agency (see § 404.1770(a) ).
