Part IV. Reinstatement

18VAC80-20-140. Reinstatement required.

If a licensee fails to meet the requirements for renewal and submit the renewal fee within 30 days after the expiration date on the license, the licensee must apply for reinstatement on a form provided by the board.

1. Applicants for reinstatement shall continue to meet the standards of entry in 18VAC80-20-30 A 2, 18VAC80-20-30 A 3 and 18VAC80-20-30 A 5 through 18VAC80-20-30 A 9.

2. Applicants for reinstatement shall submit the required fee referenced in 18VAC80-20-70.

3. Two years after the expiration date on the license, reinstatement is no longer possible. To resume practice as a hearing aid specialist, the former licensee must apply as a new applicant for licensure, meeting all educational, examination, and experience requirements as listed in the regulations current at the time of reapplication.

4. Any hearing aid specialist activity conducted subsequent to the expiration date of the license may constitute unlicensed activity and may be subject to prosecution by the Commonwealth under §§ 54.1-111 and 54.1-202 of the Code of Virginia.

18VAC80-20-150. Board discretion to deny reinstatement.

The board may deny reinstatement of a license for the same reasons as it may refuse initial licensure or discipline a licensee. The licensee is entitled to a review of such action. Appeals from such actions shall be in accordance with the provisions of the Administrative Process Act, Chapter 40 (§ 2.2-4000 et seq.) of Title 2.2 of the Code of Virginia.

18VAC80-20-160. Status of license during the period prior to reinstatement.

A. When a licensee is reinstated, the license shall continue to have the same license number and shall be assigned an expiration date two years from the previous expiration date of the license, which is the expiration date assigned to all licenses at the time the license is reinstated.

B. A licensee who reinstates his license shall be regarded as having been continually licensed without interruption. Therefore, the licensee shall remain under the disciplinary authority of the board during the entire period and may be held accountable for his activities during this period. Nothing in this chapter shall divest the board of its authority to discipline a licensee for a violation of the law or regulations during the period of licensure.
