If in the course of an investigation the department identifies any additional alleged violator, the director shall inform the additional alleged violator within five days of initiating the new investigation. The notice of a potential enforcement action against the additional alleged violator shall indicate the nature of the alleged violation and the last possible date for issuing a citation or notice of de minimis violation under section 3-368, subsection F. If the director does not issue a notice of a potential enforcement action, the director shall inform the alleged violator within fifteen days after the inspection that the director does not anticipate any enforcement action.
