An applicant must be issued a certificate if the residential juvenile sex offender treatment program conforms with this chapter, or the applicant has been granted a variance under the procedure in part 2955.0070.
A review of the applicant shall begin after the commissioner receives the completed application. Before a certificate is issued or renewed, the commissioner must complete a certification study that includes:
inspection of the physical plant, program records, and documents;
review of all conditions required to be in compliance with this chapter; and
observation of the program in operation or review of the plans for beginning operations.
The certificate shall remain in force for one year unless revoked. The commissioner may issue a certificate for up to two years to programs that have operated for at least one year without negative action against the program's certification or any relevant license or accreditation.
A residential juvenile sex offender treatment program must post the certificate conspicuously in an area where it may be read by clients.
A certificate is not transferable. Certification applies only to the entity to whom it is issued.
