The Pennsylvania Code website reflects the Pennsylvania Code changes effective through 54 Pa.B. 1806 (March 30, 2024).

49 Pa. Code § 15.34. Biennial registration, inactive status and expired certificates.

§ 15.34. Biennial registration, inactive status and expired certificates.

 (a)  Registration fee. A landscape architect licensed in this Commonwealth shall pay the biennial registration fee set forth in §  15.12 (relating to fees).

 (b)  Inactive status and registration renewal. A landscape architect who is not engaged in the practice of landscape architecture may request the Board, in writing, to place the landscape architect’s name on inactive status. The landscape architect shall notify the Board, in writing, of the landscape architect’s desire to reregister. The landscape architect shall comply with the requirements for the renewal of a license that exist at the time the landscape architect applies to become currently registered. There is no fee or penalty for preceding biennial periods in which the landscape architect did not engage in practice in this Commonwealth. The landscape architect applying to return to active status shall submit to the Board an application form prescribed by the Board stating that the applicant has not practiced landscape architecture in this Commonwealth during inactive status and the current renewal fee.

 (c)  Lapsed certificates. A landscape architect who has allowed his certificate of licensure to lapse by failing to pay a biennial renewal fee, may reactivate a certificate by submitting to the Board an application on the form prescribed by the Board. The application shall be accompanied by past due biennial renewal fees, including the biennial renewal fee for the current period and penalty fees as set forth in section 225 of the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs Fee Act (63 P. S. §  1401-225). The payment of these fees does not preclude the Board from taking disciplinary action against the landscape architect for practicing landscape architecture without a current license.
