Chapter 20. Professional Soil Scientists Regulations

18VAC145-20-130. Procedures for renewal.

A. The board sends a renewal notice to the license holder at the last known address of record at least 30 days prior to expiration of the license. Failure to receive this notice does not relieve the license holder from the requirement to renew the license. License holders shall keep the board informed of their current mailing address. Changes of address shall be reported to the board in writing within 30 calendar days of the change.

B. In addition to the established fee, proof of satisfactory completion of continuing education (CE) shall be required to renew a license. Documentation submitted as proof of completion of CE must demonstrate that the CE meets the requirements established in 18VAC145-20-145.

C. If the renewal fee and proof of completion of CE are not received by the board within 30 days following the license expiration date, a late renewal fee of $25 shall be required in addition to the regular renewal fee. Upon receipt of the requisite fee and proof of completion of CE, the license shall be renewed for an additional two years. A license that is not renewed within six months after its expiration is no longer eligible for renewal. The license may be reinstated pursuant to the requirements of 18VAC145-20-140.

D. The date the fee and documented proof of completion of CE are received by the board or its agent shall determine whether a late renewal fee, the reinstatement fee, or reapplication is required.

E. A license suspended by board order may not be renewed until the period of suspension has ended and all terms and conditions of the board's order have been met. Individuals renewing licenses within 30 days after the suspension is lifted will not be required to pay a late fee.

F. A revoked license may not be renewed. An individual whose license has been revoked shall file a new application and obtain board approval to recover licensure. Examination may not be waived.
