(a) The executive director shall maintain a disciplinary action tracking system. (b) Each licensee who has had disciplinary action taken against his or her license or specialty recognition shall be required to submit regularly scheduled reports. (c) The executive director shall review these monitoring reports resulting from formal disciplinary action and notify the Ethics Committee if the licensee is not meeting the disciplinary requirements. The Ethics Committee may consider more severe disciplinary proceedings if the licensee does not comply. (d) Regardless of whether the board has received a formal complaint, the board may require monitoring of a licensee who may pose a potential threat to public health or safety because of drug or alcohol use, mental or physical health concerns, criminal activity or allegations, and other issues which may adversely affect the public. The board may require a licensee on monitoring status to comply with conditions the board specifies. Though such monitoring is not considered a formal disciplinary action, the licensee must comply fully with the board's order or face possible formal disciplinary action levied by the board. (e) Participants of the AMEC program in accordance with §781.411 of this title (relating to Temporary License) shall be considered to be on monitoring status until released by the board and issued a regular license.
