18VAC25-21-50. Application.

A. All applicants seeking licensure shall submit a fully executed application with the appropriate fee or fees attached. Applicants will be notified if their application is incomplete.

Applications for licensure by examination must comply with the requirements of the board's designee as to the deadline for submission of the application to the board's designee.

B. 1. If a corporation, limited liability company, or other entity, the application shall include copies of the certificate of incorporation or certificate of organization issued by the Virginia State Corporation Commission, articles and bylaws.

2. If a foreign corporation, foreign limited liability company, or other entity, the application shall include copies of the certificate of authority to conduct business issued by the Virginia State Corporation Commission, which shall be required in lieu of the certificates as required by subdivision 1 of this subsection.

3. Any firm applicant shall not have been previously found by any regulatory board or agency to have violated any applicable regulations or laws in the course of performing auctioneer duties or been convicted or found guilty, regardless of the manner of adjudication, in any jurisdiction of the United States of a non-marijuana misdemeanor involving moral turpitude or any felony, there being no appeal pending therefrom or the time for appeal having elapsed. Any plea of nolo contendere shall be considered a conviction for purposes of this subdivision. A certified copy of a final order, decree or case decision by a court or regulatory agency with the lawful authority to issue such order shall be admissible as prima facie evidence of such conviction or discipline. Applicants for licensure who do not meet requirements set forth in this section may be approved for licensure following consideration by the board in accordance with § 54.1-204 of the Code of Virginia.

C. All applications will be reviewed by the Auctioneers Board staff, or the board's designee, to determine eligibility for examination and licensure within 30 days of receipt at the offices of the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation or the board's designee. However, failure to review an application within 30 days of receipt shall not imply or result in the automatic approval of the application. No applicant will be approved for licensure unless all requirements of this part of this chapter are met.
