The Board shall inspect each funeral establishment at least once annually to ensure sufficient operation of the establishments. The Board shall charge a fee of seventy-five (75) dollars for each inspection conducted as provided in Code of Ala. 1975, § 34-13-111(b). Said fees shall be submitted to the Board within forty-five (45) days of the inspection. Inspection fees that are not received by the Board within forty-five (45) days will be charges a late fee penalty of one hundred fifty (150) dollars. Should an establishment be found to be noncompliant of state funeral service laws or regulations, the inspector may give the establishment a specified period of time, to be set by the inspector, to correct the violations. Following the duration of such period, said establishment will be reinspected. Should the same violations remain, the establishment operator will be notified to appear before the Board to answer charges of violating state funeral service laws or regulations. It is hereby declared to be the intent of the Board that such period of compliance and reinspection is left completely to the discretion of the investigator and should violations or inadequacies found on the initial inspection pose serious consequences, the investigator may request the establishment operator to appear before the Board for such violations without providing period of compliance on reinspection.
