Registrar's Hearing OrderThis document sets forth the Registrar's decision in the case after a hearing and is signed by the Director or by his designee.
It tells the parties if the case is to be dismissed or closed or if the Respondent is found in violation of statutes.
If the Respondent is found in violation, the Order tells the Respondent what penalty is to be imposed and what, if any, corrective work must be done or restitution must be paid in order for the Respondent to avoid the imposition of the penalty.
Pursuant to A.R.S. §§ 41-1092.08 and 12-904, the Registrar's Order will set forth the order effective date, which is forty (40) days after the Order is mailed to the parties.
This is the date on which the dismissal, closure or penalty will go into effect.
The Order will go into effect on this date unless:
- A petition for rehearing is filed by the complainant or the respondent.
- A stay order is obtained from superior court by the complainant or the respondent.
- The Respondent provides satisfactory written notice to the Registrar of Contractors, that it has complied with the corrective work and/or restitution payment.
Normally any notice of compliance must be confirmed by the Complainant. Therefore it is beneficial to have the complainant "sign off" on any corrective work or receipt of any payment.
