The Department of Consumer and Business Services may:
(1) Where it appears that a person is engaging in or is about to engage in an act or practice in violation of any provision of ORS 480.510 (Short title) to 480.670 (Civil penalty for Boiler and Pressure Vessel Law violations), obtain without furnishing a bond, a restraining order and injunction from the circuit court in the county where the act or practice is occurring, or is threatened, enjoining the act or practice. However, before obtaining a restraining order and injunction, unless the act or practice constitutes an immediate threat to health and safety, the department shall first notify the person concerned of the department’s intentions. The notice shall be in writing, shall advise the person concerned of the department’s intentions and shall advise the person concerned of the right to appeal in writing within 10 days and that the appeal will be heard by the Board of Boiler Rules. In case there is a timely request for an appeal, proceedings will be stayed pending the appeal, unless the act or practice constitutes an immediate menace to health or safety or the person concerned fails to prosecute the appeal with diligence.
