“(1) a disciplinary action taken by a licensing agency of another jurisdiction.

“(2) a finding or verdict of guilt, an admission of guilt, a plea of nolo contendere, probation without verdict, disposition in lieu of trial or an accelerated rehabilitative disposition (ARD) of any felony or misdemeanor offense.

“To report a disciplinary action or criminal matter as set forth above, log in to the Pennsylvania Licensing System (PALS) at http://www.pals.pa.gov, and select “Mandatory Reporting By Licensees” under the heading “Licensing Services.”
