§ 315. Imposition of Penalty.
(a) The Attorney General may assess a penalty pursuant to Government Code section 12591.1, not to exceed $1,000 for each act or omission that constitutes a violation. To assess a penalty, the Attorney General shall serve a written notice by certified mail that states the basis of the violation and the amount of the penalty.
(1) For violations of Government Code section 12586.1, subdivisions (c), (d), (e) or (f), the notice must be mailed at least 30 days before the penalty becomes effective. The notice shall advise the recipient how to correct or appeal the violation. If the recipient provides documentation to the Attorney General within 30 days that the violation has been corrected the penalty will not be imposed.
(2) For other violations, the notice shall be mailed at least 5 days before the penalty becomes effective. When the violation occurs in connection with a solicitation for charitable purposes, each call, mailing or request constitutes a separate violation regardless of whether it results in a donation.
(3) If the act or omission that constitutes a violation is ongoing, the notice may include a statement that penalties shall continue to accrue at a rate of $100 per day for each day until the violation is corrected. The notice shall advise the recipient how to correct the violation and how to inform the Attorney General that the violation has been corrected. When the Attorney General determines that the violation has been corrected, the Attorney General shall issue a written notice identifying the beginning and ending dates of the violation along with the total amount of the penalty.
(b) Appeals shall be made in accordance with California Code of Regulations, title 11, section 999.6, subdivision (c). Unless a timely appeal has been filed, all penalties must be paid within 30 days of the issuance of the notice setting forth the amount of the penalty, unless the Attorney General has agreed to a later date in writing.
