License Renewal

 

18 VAC 160-20-106. Renewal.

  1. Licenses for waterworks operators shall expire on the last day of February of each odd-numbered year. Licenses for wastewater works operators shall expire on the last day of February of each even-numbered year.

  2. The Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation shall mail a renewal notice to the licensee outlining the procedures for renewal. Renewal notices shall be mailed to the licensee at the last known address of record. Failure to receive written notice shall not relieve the licensee of the obligation to renew and pay the required fee outlined in 18 VAC 160-20-102.

  3. Each licensee applying for renewal shall return the renewal notice, fee, and, in the case of waterworks licensees only, a statement that the applicant for license renewal has met the CPE requirement established in 18 VAC 160-20-109 prior to the expiration date shown on the license. If the licensee fails to receive the renewal notice, a copy of the expired license may be submitted in place of the renewal notice along with the required fee and, in the case of waterworks licensees only, a statement that the licensee has met the CPE requirement in 18 VAC 160-20-109.

  4. The date on which the renewal fee and any required forms are actually received by the board or its agent shall determine whether an additional fee is due.

  5. If the requirements of subsection C of this section are met more than 30 days but less than 12 months after the expiration date on the license, a late penalty fee shall be required as established in 18 VAC 160-20-102. The date on which the renewal application, any required documentation and the required fees are actually received by the board or its agent shall determine whether the licensee is eligible for renewal and whether an additional fee is due.

  6. Any individual who fails to renew his license within 12 months after the expiration date printed on the license shall apply for a new license by examination in accordance with Part II (18 VAC 160-20-74 et seq.) of this chapter. Such individual shall be deemed to be eligible to sit for the examination for the same category and class of license as the expired license.

  7. The board may deny renewal of a license for the same reasons as it may refuse initial licensure or discipline a licensee.
