Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.

(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2028)
Issuance of license; renewal.
(a) The Office 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 certificate or wallet card, as applicable, showing
the name and business location of the licensee, and the dates of issuance and
expiration. For an employee license, the wallet card shall also contain a photograph of the licensee, unless the licensee has a religious exemption in accordance with Section 40.
(c) An applicant for license renewal shall, at the time of renewal application, provide proof of qualifications for licensure under Section 40 for the respective license to the Office. Upon receipt of the requisite fees, the Office shall issue the license in accordance with subsection (a). The expiration date and renewal period
for each license issued under this Act shall be set by rule. Failure to
renew by the expiration date shall lapse the license. A lapsed
may not be renewed until a written application is filed, an applicant has demonstrated proof of qualifications for licensure, and the renewal
fee is paid. If not renewed, a license shall become inactive following 60 days after the expiration date of the license. An inactive license may not be reinstated until a written application is filed, an applicant has demonstrated proof of qualifications for licensure, the renewal fee is paid, and the reinstatement fee is paid. A license may not be reinstated after one year from the expiration date of the license. 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 reinstatement within one year after
discharge from such service.
(d) As a condition of renewal of a license, the State Fire Marshal may
require the licensee to report information pertaining to the licensee's practice which
the State Fire Marshal determines to be in the interest of public safety.
(e) All fees paid under this Act
are non-refundable. This shall not preclude the State Fire Marshal from refunding accidental overpayment of fees.
