  6. The procedures for disciplinary proceedings including the filing of complaints; investigation of complaints by the Board, actions the Board may take relative to complaints and violations, and hearing requirements;
  7. The procedures for adjudicatory proceedings; and 8. The prohibition against retaliatory action.
