The department is empowered after hearing before it and upon information being filed with the department by the duly authorized head of the warehouse bureau of the department or upon complaint filed by any person to suspend or revoke the license of anyone licensed under this chapter for the violation of or failure to comply with the provisions of this chapter or any rule made in pursuance of the authority therefor granted under this chapter. An information or a verified complaint stating the grounds for suspension or revocation shall be filed with the department in triplicate, and thereupon the department shall serve the licensee complained against with a copy of the information or the complaint and a copy of the order of the department fixing the time for hearing thereon, which time shall be at least ten days from the date of service.
If upon the filing of the information or complaint the department finds that the licensee has failed to meet the warehouse operator's obligation or otherwise has violated or failed to comply with the provisions of this chapter or any rule promulgated under this chapter, and if the department finds that the public health, safety or welfare imperatively requires emergency action, then the department without hearing may order a summary suspension of the license in the manner provided in section 17A.18. When so ordered, a copy of the order of suspension shall be served upon the licensee at the time the information or complaint is served as provided in this section.
Judicial review of the actions of the department may be sought in accordance with the terms of the Iowa administrative procedure Act.
