(A) A license to practice as a genetic counselor issued under section 4778.05 of the Revised Code that is not renewed on or before its expiration date is automatically suspended on its expiration date. Continued practice after suspension shall be considered as practicing in violation of section 4778.02 of the Revised Code.

The board shall not restore a license unless the board, in its discretion, decides that the results of the criminal records check do not make the applicant ineligible for a license issued pursuant to section 4778.05 of the Revised Code.

(2) The board may impose terms and conditions for the restoration, including the following:

(a) Requiring the applicant to pass an oral or written examination, or both, to determine the applicant's present fitness to resume practice;
