The Central Compliance Agency also works to gain Co-operative Compliance by Holding Recommended Warning And High-Risk Employees Orientations & Conferences.
Despite these remedial actions, on rare occasions The CCA encounters a licensee who fails to comply with the law and regulations and demonstrates a lack of commitment to improving his or her business practices.
The Central Compliance Agency's Investigators assist licensees in developing corrective actions when violations are identified and encourage licensees to constructively engage in the remediation process.
In this way, The CCA attempts to Prevent licensees From Committing Compliance Violations before it becomes necessary to take administrative action against the licensee.
When an CCA Prepratory Inspection results in a Recommended Orientation or Warning conference or potential revocation, the licensee is provided an opportunity to develop a written plan that details the steps taken to correct the problems identified and measures implemented to ensure future compliance.
