(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2023)
Issuance of license; renewal.
(a) The State Fire Marshal shall, upon the applicant's satisfactory
completion of the requirements authorized under this Act and upon receipt
of the requisite fees, issue the appropriate license and wallet card showing
the name and business location of the licensee, the dates of issuance and
expiration, and shall contain a photograph of the licensee provided to the
State Fire Marshal. An applicant who is 21 years of age or older seeking a religious exemption to the photograph required by this subsection shall furnish with his or her application an approved copy of United States Department of the Treasury Internal Revenue Service Form 4029. Regardless of age, an applicant seeking a religious exemption to this photograph requirement shall submit fingerprints in a form and manner prescribed by the State Fire Marshal with his or her application in lieu of a photograph.
(b) Any license valid on December 31, 2010 under the Fire Equipment Distributor and Employee Regulation Act of 2000 shall be a valid license under this Act and expires when the valid license issued under the Fire Equipment Distributor and Employee Regulation Act of 2000 was scheduled to expire.
(c) Each licensee may apply for renewal of his license upon payment of
fees, as set forth in this Act. The expiration date and renewal period
for each license issued under this Act shall be set by rule. Failure to
renew within 60 days of the expiration date shall lapse the license. A lapsed
may not be reinstated until a written application is filed, the renewal
fee is paid, and a $50 reinstatement fee is paid. Renewal and reinstatement
fees shall be waived for persons who did not renew while on active duty
in the military and who file for renewal or restoration within one year after
discharge from such service. A lapsed license may not be reinstated after
5 years have elapsed, except upon passing an examination to determine fitness
to have the license restored and by paying the required fees.
(d) As a condition of renewal of a license, the State Fire Marshal may
require the licensee to report information pertaining to his practice which
the State Fire Marshal determines to be in the interest of public safety.
