(1) The Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services may conduct an annual on-site examination of a licensee upon reasonable notice to the licensee. The examination may be conducted at the principal place of business of the licensee. Upon reasonable notice, the director may also conduct an examination of any location of the licensee and its authorized delegates. The on-site examination may be conducted in conjunction with examinations to be performed by representatives of agencies of other states. In lieu of an annual on-site examination, the director may accept the examination report of an agency of another state or a report prepared by an independent accountancy organization. Reports so accepted are considered for all purposes as an official report of the director.

(2) The director may conduct an on-site examination of a licensee or any authorized delegate without prior notice to the licensee or authorized delegate if the director has a reasonable basis to believe that the licensee or authorized delegate is in violation of any provision of ORS 717.200 (Definitions) to 717.320 (Short title), 717.900 (Civil penalties) and 717.905 (Criminal penalties). The examination may be conducted at the principal place of business of the licensee or authorized delegate.

(3) The director shall have authority to examine under oath all persons whose testimony the director may require in order to conduct the examination.

(4) Each licensee examined under this section shall pay $60 per hour for each examiner, plus costs of an examination, to the director. The director may maintain an action for the recovery of such costs in any court of competent jurisdiction. [1999 c.571 §13; 2001 c.104 §284]
