(A) The commission may, in its sole and absolute discretion, waive or grant a variance from the provisions of this chapter upon a licensee's or applicants written request, if the commission determines that the waiver or variance is in the best interests of the public.
(B) In granting any variance authorized by this rule, the commission may impose certain conditions and restrictions with which the licensee or applicant must comply to accept and use the variance. Failure to meet the conditions or restrictions contained in the variance will immediately render the variance void, and the licensee or applicant may be subject to discipline in the same manner as if the variance had never been issued.
(C) An applicant whose original application for licensure has been denied or whose license has been revoked may not reapply for a period of three years from the date of denial or revocation. The commission may grant a waiver for reapplication if the applicant can demonstrate that the reason the original application was denied or license was revoked no longer exists or bars suitability for licensure.
