The objective is to clarify that it is unprofessional conduct to violate an order of the Real Estate Examining Board.
3. Description of the existing policies relevant to the rule, new policies proposed to be included in the rule, and an analysis of policy alternatives:
Existing policy states licensees shall not violate any provisions or terms or conditions of any disciplinary order of the Board. The Board issues other orders, for example issuing a limited license order instead of denying a license to applicants who create safety concerns for the public but could practice safely with some certain limitiations in place. The proposed rule would clarify that it is unprofessional conduct to violate any order of the Board.
4. Detailed explanation of statutory authority for the rule (including the statutory citation and language):
15.08 (5) (b) Each examining board shall promulgate rules for its own guidance and for the guidance of the profession to which it pertains, and define and enforce professional conduct and unethical practices not inconsistent with the law relating to the particular trade or profession.
