Current through Register Vol. 56, No. 14, July 15, 2024
Section 13:40-2.10 - Reinstatement of suspended license
(a) A licensee who has had his or her license suspended pursuant to N.J.A.C. 13:40-2.8may apply to the Board for reinstatement. A licensee applying for reinstatement shall submit:
1. A reinstatement application;
2. A certification of employment listing each job held during the period of suspended license, which includes the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of each employer;
3. The renewal fee for the biennial period for which reinstatement is sought;
4. The unpaid renewal fee for the biennial period immediately preceding the renewal period for which reinstatement is sought;
5. The reinstatement fee set forth in N.J.A.C. 13:40-6.1; and
6. Evidence of having completed all continuing competency credits that were required to be completed during the biennial period immediately prior to the renewal period for which reinstatement is sought, consistent with the requirements set forth in N.J.A.C. 13:40-12 or 13.
i. An applicant who holds a valid, current license in good standing issued by another state to engage in the practice of professional engineering or professional land surveying and submits proof of having satisfied that state's continuing competency requirements for that license, shall be deemed to have satisfied the requirements of this paragraph. If the other state does not have any continuing competency requirements, the requirements of this paragraph shall apply.
ii. To the extent that specific courses are required to satisfy the continuing competency requirement for, or are required to have been satisfied prior to, the biennial period for which reinstatement is sought, the Board will allow applicants to take the courses within 12 months following reinstatement. If the Board concludes, in accordance with (b) below, that there are practice deficiencies in need of remediation, (b) below shall apply.
(b) If a Board review of an application establishes a basis for concluding that there may be practice deficiencies in need of remediation prior to reinstatement, the Board may require the applicant to submit to, and successfully pass, an examination or an assessment of skills, a refresher course, or other requirements, as determined by the Board, prior to reinstatement of the license. If that examination or assessment identifies deficiencies or educational needs, the Board may require the applicant as a condition of reinstatement of licensure to take and successfully complete any education or training or to submit to any supervision, monitoring, or limitations, as the Board determines is necessary to assure that the applicant practices with reasonable skill and safety. The Board, in its discretion, may restore the license subject to the applicant's completion of the training within a period of time prescribed by the Board following the restoration of the license. In making its determination whether there are practice deficiencies requiring remediation, the Board shall consider the following non-exhaustive issues:
1. Length of time license was suspended;
2. Employment history;
3. Professional history;
4. Disciplinary history and any action taken against the applicant's license by any licensing body;
5. Actions affecting the applicant's privileges taken by any institution, organization, or employer related to the practice of professional engineering, land surveying, or other professional or occupational practice in New Jersey, any other state, the District of Columbia, or in any other jurisdiction;
6. Pending proceedings against a professional or occupational license issued to the licensee by a professional licensing body in New Jersey, any other state, the District of Columbia, or in any other jurisdiction; and
7. Civil litigation related to the practice of professional engineering, land surveying, or other professional or occupational practice in New Jersey, any other state, the District of Columbia, or in any other jurisdiction.
