Grounds for discipline are specified in Section 206 the Rules of the State of Idaho Board of Veterinary Medicine. If deficiencies are documented by a COHE inspector with either a CEA or CET, a COHE member or the Board documents, in writing, areas for correction. The CEA and/or CET must make corrections within ten (10) days of receipt of notice of the deficiencies. A COHE or Board member shall re-inspect within ninety (90) days of the date of the initial notice of deficiency. If the deficiency has not been corrected, the certification may be revoked by the Board, and the Idaho Board of Pharmacy will be notified.
The Board may refuse to issue, renew, or reinstate the certification of a CEA or CET, or may deny, revoke, suspend, sanction, place on probation, or require voluntary surrender of the certification of a CEA or CET, impose other forms of discipline, and enter into consent agreements and negotiated settlements with CEAs and CETs pursuant to the procedures set forth in the Idaho Rules of Administrative Procedure of the Attorney General of the Idaho Code.
