Procedure for denial, suspension or revocation of application or certification

(1) When the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training, the Board on Public Safety Standards and Training or a policy committee of the board established under ORS 181A.375 (Policy committees) believes there is a reasonable basis for denying, suspending or revoking, as applicable, the application or certification of an instructor or a public safety officer, except a youth correction officer, notice and opportunity for a hearing shall be provided in accordance with rules approved by the board and in accordance with ORS 183.415 (Notice of right to hearing) and 183.417 (Procedure in contested case hearing) prior to denial, suspension or revocation.

(2)(a) Pursuant to rules adopted under ORS 181A.410 (Minimum standards and training for certification) and 181A.640 (Grounds for denial, suspension or revocation of application or certification of person or accreditation of program), the policy committee in the relevant discipline and the board shall review denials, suspensions and revocations based on discretionary grounds.

(b) If a policy committee votes to recommend denial or revocation of the application or certification of an instructor or a public safety officer pursuant to paragraph (a) of this subsection, the notice and opportunity for a hearing required under subsection (1) of this section shall be provided after the committee has voted and before the board considers the committee’s recommendation.

(c) If the board disapproves the policy committee’s recommendation under paragraph (b) of this subsection, the department shall withdraw the notice issued under subsection (1) of this section.

(d)(A) For cases originally considered by a policy committee, if the department proposes to amend an administrative law judge’s proposed order issued in response to a request for a hearing by an instructor or a public safety officer under subsection (1) of this section, the committee shall consider the proposed amendment before the department may issue a final order pursuant to ORS 181A.410 (Minimum standards and training for certification).

(B) The department’s final order may not incorporate the proposed amendment unless the policy committee approves the amendment. [Formerly 181.661]
