4726-1-04 Board records, documents, fees.

(A) The board shall maintain a record of all applicants for, and holders of, licenses and registrations issued by the board under Chapters 4725.40 to 4725.99 of the Revised Code and any rules adopted under agency 4726 of the Administrative Code. The record shall be maintained in such format as determined by the board.

(B) A change in name shall be submitted to the board in writing within thirty days of the change and shall be accompanied by a notarized form and any other records as required by the board, and the current license or registration card.

(C) A change of address shall be submitted to the board in writing within thirty days of the change. Notice of renewal will be mailed to the last address of record maintained at the board. Failure of the licensed optician, licensed ocularist or registered apprentice to receive an application from the board does not excuse the license holder or the registered apprentice from renewing in a timely manner.

(D) All fee payments shall be made in the form specified by the board. Fees are non-refundable.

(E) Documents issued by the board as evidence of licensure or registrations shall not be reproduced, duplicated, or imaged onto paper or any electronic media. The only exception to this prohibition is that such documents may be photocopied by the individual to whom the document was issued. Immediately after photocopying the document, the individual to whom the document was issued shall write the word "copy" boldly across the front side of the photocopied version of the document with a black permanent ink marker and place the individual's initials after the word "copy."
