 5-8-15.  Expiration and renewal of certificates of registration for professional engineers.


(a) Certificates of registration shall expire on the last day of the month of June following their issuance and become invalid after that date unless renewed. It is the duty of the board to notify every person registered under this chapter of the date of the expiration of his or her certificate and the amount of the fee required for its renewal. The notice shall be delivered, electronically or otherwise, to the registrant, at his or her last-known e-mail address, at least one month in advance of the date of the expiration of the certificate.

(b) Certificates of registration must be renewed prior to, or during the month of, June by the payment of a fee set by the board in an amount not less than one hundred fifty dollars ($150), but not to exceed one hundred eighty dollars ($180). Expired certificates may be renewed within a period of three (3) years, provided evidence is submitted to the board attesting to the continued competence and good character of the applicant. In the event renewal is not made before the end of the third year, the board may require any reexamination that it deems appropriate. The amount to be paid for that renewal is the annual fee set by the board in an amount not to exceed one hundred eighty dollars ($180) times the number of years the applicant has been delinquent, plus a penalty of sixty dollars ($60.00) per delinquent year.
