Current through Register Vol. 56, No. 12, June 17, 2024
Section 13:40-2.8 - Biennial license renewal
(a) The Board shall send a notice of renewal to each licensee at least 60 days prior to the expiration of the license. The notice of renewal shall explain inactive renewal and advise the licensee of the option to renew as inactive. If the notice to renew is not sent 60 days prior to the expiration date, no monetary penalties or fines shall apply to the holder for failure to renew provided that the licensee is renewed within 60 days from the date the notice is sent or within 30 days following the date of license expiration, whichever is later.
(b) A licensee shall renew his or her license for a period of two years from the last expiration date. The licensee shall submit a renewal application to the Board, along with the renewal fee set forth in N.J.A.C. 13:40-6.1, prior to the date of license expiration.
(c) A licensee may renew his or her license by choosing inactive status. A licensee electing to renew his or her license as inactive shall not engage in the practice of professional engineering or professional land surveying, or hold themselves out as eligible to engage in the practice of professional engineering or professional land surveying, in New Jersey until such time as the license is returned to active status.
(d) If a licensee does not renew the license prior to its expiration date, the licensee may renew the license within 30 days of its expiration, by submitting a renewal application, a renewal fee, and a late fee as set forth in N.J.A.C. 13:40-6.1. During this 30-day period, the license shall be valid and the licensee shall not be deemed practicing without a license.
(e) A licensee who fails to submit a renewal application within 30 days of license expiration shall have his or her license suspended without a hearing.
(f) A licensee who continues to engage in the practice of professional engineering or professional land surveying with a suspended license shall be deemed to be engaging in the unauthorized practice of professional engineering or professional land surveying and shall be subject to action consistent with N.J.S.A. 45:1-14et seq., even if no notice of suspension has been provided to the individual.
