California has another new rule.

December 27th, 2018

All Department of Business Oversight (DBO) licensees are required by law to establish and maintain an email address for receiving communications and documents from the DBO beginning January 1, 2019.

The email address:
1. Must not be an email of any individual employee.
2. Must be able to receive attachments.

To register a designated email address, licensees must go to DBO’s website here. Instructions to create a designated email are available here.

Licensees are required by law to notify the DBO before changing the designated email and provide the DBO with the new designated email.

If licensees fail to comply with the designated email requirements, the licensee may be subject to a fine of up to fifty dollars ($50) per day, not to exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000) in the aggregate.
