enforcement action, including imposing a penalty, as authorized by
this part.

corrected. If the person disagrees with all of the alleged
violations, the written notice of disagreement shall be returned in
lieu of the signed certification of correction within 30 days of the
date of issuance of the notice to comply. If the issuing agency takes
