Besides performing all functions of conducting examinations for licensing, the Board performs periodic checks on licensees facilities, issues or revokes licenses as the case may be, maintains records to certify that licensees are in fact properly licensed and, in general, enforces a code of ethics by receiving complaints, performing investigations and presenting evidence to support or refute allegations against a licensee.
