Subpart 1.

Protocol.

Each salon and each permit holder under part 2105.0410 is subject to inspection at any time the board deems it necessary to affirm compliance.

A.

All licensees, including salons open by appointment only and salons with irregular hours, must allow a board inspector, in the exercise of official duties, to inspect the salon on the inspector's arrival at the salon.

B.

A salon owner and designated licensed salon manager (DLSM) must cooperate if asked by board inspectors to arrange inspection appointments.

Subp. 2.

Violations and orders to comply.

A.

The board must notify salons and permit holders under part 2105.0410 with a written inspection report when any violation is found during a board inspection. The salon licensee and DLSM, or the permit holder under part 2105.0410, must take immediate action to address each violation and, within ten business days, bring the salon and all licensees practicing under the salon license, or the permit holder, into compliance with this chapter, chapter 2140, and Minnesota Statutes, chapter 155A.

B.

If an order to comply is issued by the board inspector, the salon and DLSM, or the permit holder under part 2105.0410, must report to the board via mail or e-mail, within ten business days of the order's issuance, using a form provided by the board. The report must:

explain how each violation was corrected and the date of correction; and

(2)

for each violation that was not immediately corrected or not corrected within ten days, provide a written explanation of the reason for the delay, the specific steps the licensee will take to correct the violation, and the projected date the outstanding violation will be corrected. The board must grant an extension if requested in writing when the health and safety of the public is not at immediate risk, and when the delay is warranted based on the information provided by the salon or permit holder.

Subp. 3.

Posting inspection results.

The board must provide each salon with the inspection results and a detailed inspection report on the inspection findings. Within ten business days of the issuance date on the results and report, the salon must conspicuously post the inspection results in the entryway or at the reception desk of the salon, and place the detailed inspection report in the reception area so that the public may review the results. The inspection results must remain posted and the detailed inspection report must remain available in the reception area or entryway until replaced by new inspection results and a new detailed inspection report. Permit holders under part 2105.0410 are not subject to the posting requirements in this subdivision.
