Current through Register Vol. 56, No. 12, June 17, 2024
Section 13:40-2.9 - Reactivation of license
(a) A licensee who holds an inactive license pursuant to N.J.A.C. 13:40-2.8(c) may apply to the Board for reactivation of the inactive license. A licensee seeking reactivation of an inactive license shall submit:
1. A renewal application;
2. A certification of employment listing each job held during the period the license was inactive, which shall include the name, address, and telephone number of each employer;
3. The renewal fee for the biennial period for which reactivation is sought, as set forth in N.J.A.C. 13:40-6.1 or , in the discretion of the Board, a prorated fee if there is less than one year remaining in the biennial renewal period; and
4. 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 reactivation 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 reactivation is sought, the Board will allow applicants to take the courses within 12 months following reactivation. 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 reactivation, 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 reactivation 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 inactive;
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 jurisdictions;
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.
