Chapter 4733-25 Reinstatement of Lapsed Certificate

4733-25-01 Reinstatement of an expired certificate of registration.

Any registrant whose certificate of registration has expired for non-payment of renewal fees pursuant to division (A) of section 4733.15 of the Revised Code may apply in writing for reinstatement. The application so filed must be supported with a detailed notarized experience statement covering all experience subsequent to the date of expiration. This statement shall describe the nature of work performed, degree of responsibility, and dates of each engagement. This statement must also show how the applicant maintained competency in his field during the period since expiration. The application so filed must also include proof of completion of fifteen hours of continuing professional development for each lapsed year. Upon receipt of the application the board will review it and determine the steps required for reinstatement. If more than four consecutive years have elapsed since the date of expiration, the applicant shall be required to take and pass the principles and practice of engineering examination and/or principles and practice of surveying examination as a condition of reinstatement unless the applicant has maintained continuous, uninterrupted registration in any other state or United States territory. The amount of the reinstatement fee shall be as prescribed in paragraph (L) of rule 4733-19-01 of the Administrative Code. Payment of reinstatement fees does not validate any illegal practice performed during the period between expiration and reinstatement. Reinstatement shall require a majority affirmative vote of the board at a board meeting where the reinstatement application is considered.
