Communications to the commissioner or any person in his office in respect to any fact concerning the holder of, or applicant for, any certificate or license issued under this code are made to him in official confidence within the meaning of Sections 1040 and 1041 of the Evidence Code. Liability shall not exist and no action or proceeding shall lie for or on account of any such communication or the making thereof, but the existence of such communication shall not be deemed to dispense with or nullify any requirement of notice, hearing or production of evidence before the commissioner as otherwise required by law.
