8. a. The department shall also establish standards for the issuance, renewal, denial, suspension and revocation of a certificate of registration which the family day care sponsoring organization shall apply. In developing the standards, the department shall consult with the Advisory Council on Child Care established pursuant to the "Child Care Center Licensing Act," P.L.1983, c.492 (C.30:5B-1 et seq.).

b.A person operating as a registered family day care provider who violates the provisions of this act by failing to adhere to the standards established by the department pursuant to this act shall be notified in writing of the violation of the provisions of this act and provided with an opportunity to comply with those provisions. For a subsequent violation, the person's certificate of registration may be revoked, or the person may be fined in an amount determined by the Commissioner of Human Services, or both. The receipt of excessive complaints by the municipal police or other local or State authorities concerning neglect of children, excessive noise, or property damage resulting from the operation of a family day care home may be considered by the department when renewing, suspending or revoking a certificate of registration.

c.The department, before denying, suspending, revoking or refusing to renew a certificate of registration, shall give notice thereof to the provider personally, or by certified or registered mail to the last known address of the family day care home with return receipt requested. The notice shall afford the provider the opportunity to be heard. The hearing shall take place within 60 days from the receipt of the notice and shall be conducted in accordance with the "Administrative Procedure Act," P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-1 et seq.).

d.If the certificate of registration is suspended or revoked or not renewed, the provider shall so notify the parent of each child attending the family day care home in writing within 10 days of the action.
