(from Ch. 111, par. 6614)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2020)
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.
