Goto Year:2013 |
§ 1.93 Consent orders.
(a) As used in this subpart, a "consent order" is a formal decree
accepting an agreement between a party to an adjudicatory hearing
proceeding held to determine whether that party has violated statutes
or Commission rules or policies and the appropriate operating Bureau,
with regard to such party's future compliance with such statutes, rules
or policies, and disposing of all issues on which the proceeding was
designated for hearing. The order is issued by the officer designated
to preside at the hearing or (if no officer has been designated) by the
Chief Administrative Law Judge.
(b) Where the interests of timely enforcement or compliance, the nature
of the proceeding, and the public interest permit, the Commission, by
its operating Bureaus, may negotiate a consent order with a party to
secure future compliance with the law in exchange for prompt
disposition of a matter subject to administrative adjudicative
proceedings. Consent orders may not be negotiated with respect to
matters which involve a party's basic statutory qualifications to hold
a license (see 47 U.S.C. 308 and 309).
