PROCEDURES TO REINSTATE LAPSED INDIVIDUAL LICENSE

When the records of a licensee are placed in the retention file by request, for failure to renew, or for lack of correct address, the following procedure is followed:

The maximum holding time for the retention file is three (3) years.  Records are destroyed after three years.  If registration is desired after three years, a new application must be submitted to the Board for approval.

To reinstate the license any time during the 3-year period, the following is required:
