The department of inspections and appeals shall report its findings to the board, and the board shall hold a hearing within sixty days after the date on which the charges are filed. The board shall fix the time and place for such hearing and shall cause a copy of the charges, together with a notice of the time and place fixed for the hearing, to be served on the accused at least thirty days before the date fixed for the hearing. Where personal service cannot be effected, service may be effected by publication. At such hearing, the accused shall have the right to appear personally or by counsel, to cross-examine witnesses against the accused, and to produce evidence and witnesses in defense. After the hearing, the board may suspend or revoke the certificate of registration.
