TITLE 1. PRELIMINARY PROVISIONS

L.C. (1)01. Officials of the Bureau of Licensing do not hold the right to make an arrest. In other words, they are different from a Law Enforcement Officer. However, they are entitled to issue penalties in order to enforce the rules arising out of the interpretation or application of the Licensing Ordinance [022-JS], Aviation Act of 2015 [001-RN] and related provisions.

L.C. (1)02. Licensing Officials submit a declaration under oath as a commitment to tell the truth in the performance of their duties. If the official is later found to have lied whilst bound by the commitment, he/she is charged with Corruption of Public Duty as defined in the Penal Code under (4)16.

L.C. (1)03. The Bureau of Licensing is allowed to make use of minor decoys to enforce regulations for businesses.

  • The minor must be at least 16 years old and at most 20 years old.
  • The minor must use a valid, truthful, and correct ID.
  • The minor must identify the offering party face to face.
  • The Bureau must inform the investigated party of its findings.

TITLE 2. HIERARCHY OF PENALTIES

A. Cease and Desist Order
    As violations pile up and the business continues to disregard licensing regulations, a cease and desist order will be issued by the Bureau of Licensing. This forces the business to close its doors for good.

B. Revocation of Business Licenses
    The business is forced to cease all activities in relation to the business license(s) issued. This sanction is imposed on a permanent basis.

C. Suspension of Business Licenses
    The business is forced to cease all activities in relation to the business license issued. The suspension lasts for a determined period of time.

D. Civil Penalty
    a financial penalty imposed on businesses or individuals by a Government Agency (in this case the BoL) as restitution for wrongdoing. Upon receiving a civil penalty the business has three (3) days to pay.
_______________________________________________________________________


  • Formal Warning

      Disciplinary action involving the above mentioned penalties is in most cases preceded by a formal warning. Formal warnings do not qualify as a penalty, but act as a stimulant for businesses to abide by licensing regulations. Upon receiving a formal warning the business has seven (7) days to address the violation.
