    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2020)
    Sec. 14. The expiration date and renewal period for each license issued under this Act shall be set by rule. The holder of a license may renew the license during the month preceding its expiration date by paying the required fee.
    A licensed structural engineer who has permitted his license to expire or who placed his license on inactive status may have his license restored by making application to the Department and filing proof acceptable to the Department of fitness to have the license restored, including sworn evidence certifying to active practice in another jurisdiction satisfactory to the Department and by submitting evidence of knowledge in seismic design and by paying the required restoration fee.
    If the licensed structural engineer has not maintained an active practice in another jurisdiction satisfactory to the Department, the Board shall determine, by an evaluation program established by rule, that person's fitness to resume active status and may require the licensed structural engineer to complete an examination.
    Any licensed structural engineer whose license has been expired for more than 5 years may have his license restored by making application to the Department and filing proof acceptable to the Department of fitness to have the license restored, including sworn evidence certifying to active practice in another jurisdiction and by paying the required restoration fee.
    However, any licensed structural engineer whose license has expired while such engineer was engaged (1) in federal service on active duty with the Army of the United States, the United States Navy, the Marine Corps, the Air Force, the Coast Guard, or the State Militia called into the service or training of the United States of America, or (2) in training or education under the supervision of the United States preliminary to induction into the military service, may have his license restored or reinstated without paying any lapsed renewal fees, reinstatement fee or restoration fee or passing any examination, if within 2 years after termination of such service, training or education other than by dishonorable discharge such person furnishes the Department with an affidavit to the effect that he has been so engaged and that the service, training or education has been so terminated.
