The following procedures shall apply to actions taken by the board on a certificate of noncompliance received from the Iowa department of human services pursuant to Iowa Code chapter 252J.

(1) The notice required by Iowa Code section 252J.8 shall be served upon the licensee by restricted certified mail, return receipt requested, or personal service in accordance with Iowa Rule of Civil Procedure 1.305. Alternatively, the licensee may accept service personally or through authorized counsel.
(2) The effective date of revocation or suspension of a license, as specified in the notice required by Iowa Code section 252J.8, shall be 60 days following service upon the licensee.
(3) Licensees shall keep the board informed of all court actions and all child support recovery unit actions taken under or in connection with Iowa Code chapter 252J and shall provide the board with copies, within 7 days of filing or issuance, of all applications filed with the district court pursuant to Iowa Code section 252J.9, all court orders entered in such actions, and withdrawals of certificates of noncompliance by the child support recovery unit.
(4) All applicable fees for an application or reinstatement must be paid by the licensee before a license will be issued, renewed, or reinstated after the board has denied the issuance or renewal of a license or has suspended or revoked a license pursuant to Iowa Code chapter 252J.
(5) In the event the licensee files a timely district court action following service of a notice pursuant to Iowa Code sections 252J.8 and 252J.9, the board shall continue with the intended action described in the notice upon the receipt of a court order lifting the stay, dismissing the action, or otherwise directing the board to proceed. For the purpose of determining the effective date of revocation or suspension of the license, the board shall count the number of days before the action was filed and the number of days after the action was disposed of by the court.
(6) Suspensions or revocations imposed pursuant to this rule may not be appealed administratively to the board or within the department of public safety.

Note : The procedures established in rule 661-503.5 (252J,103) implement the requirements of Iowa Code chapter 252J. The provisions of Iowa Code chapter 252J establish mandatory requirements for an agency which administers a licensing program, such as the one established in this chapter, and provide that actions brought under these provisions are not subject to contested case procedures established in Iowa Code chapter 17A, but must be appealed directly to district court.
