Iowa Admin. Code r. 661-503.2 - Discipline
If a complaint alleging an act or acts in violation of rules adopted by the board, 2007 Iowa Acts, chapter 197, or any other provision of law deemed relevant by the board to the use of a license issued by the board is substantiated, the board may suspend the license for a specific period of time, or indefinitely, may revoke the license, or may reprimand the licensee. The holder of a license which is suspended or revoked shall receive notice of the suspension or revocation in writing by registered mail, return receipt requested, or by personal service. The notice shall include a statement that the licensee has the right to appeal the reprimand, suspension or revocation to the board within 14 days of receiving the notice, and that the reprimand, revocation or suspension shall not take effect until the time to file an appeal has expired. If an appeal is filed, the reprimand, suspension or revocation shall be stayed until the appeal has been acted upon.
Exception : If the board finds that a violation which is the basis of the suspension or revocation is such that allowing the licensee to continue to engage in work covered by the license would present an imminent threat to the safety of the public, the board may provide that the suspension or revocation take effect immediately upon notice being delivered to the licensee.
