C. The Commission shall give reasonable notice of each inspection to the state’s designated agent or agents, who may accompany any such inspection.

D. The Tribe is responsible for ensuring that any gaming facility condition noted in an inspection that does not meet the standards set out in subsection (B) of this section is corrected.

E. If the state’s designated agent or agents object to a certification by the Tribe’s building and safety code experts that a gaming facility meets the standards set out in subsection (B) of this section, the Tribe shall make good faith efforts to address the state’s concerns, but if the state does not withdraw its objection the matter will be resolved in accordance with the dispute resolution provisions of Section 9 of the Compact.
