8D03 Contents of an SCN

An SCN, including an ASCN, may have two parts, the notice and an enclosure.

a. Notice. The Notice itself which states the consequences under the regulations of not coming into compliance.

b. Enclosure. An enclosure states the violation and the required remedies. The statement of the violation should include appropriate regulatory citations. This approach also applies to the nondiscrimination and affirmative action provisions of the appropriate equal opportunity clauses. The appropriate format of an SCN will depend on the particular situation. FCCM 8D01 lists violations for which COs should issue an SCN and includes references to the letters that provide the format for each type of violation.
