49 Pa. Code § 41.13. Reactivation of licensure.

§ 41.13. Reactivation of licensure.

 (a)  A person whose psychology license is inactive or has lapsed because of failure to register biennially with the Board shall apply for reactivation of licensure on forms prescribed by the Board, shall pay the renewal fee for the current biennium, shall show compliance with the continuing education requirements (see §  41.59 (relating to continuing education)), including the mandatory training requirements in child abuse recognition and reporting in §  41.77(b) (relating to child abuse recognition and reporting—mandatory training requirement), and shall submit a notarized affidavit identifying periods of time during which the applicant for reactivation did not practice psychology in this Commonwealth or practiced in a setting where psychologists are exempt from licensure under section 3 of the act (63 P.S. §  1203). The late renewal fee described in subsection (b) and referenced in §  41.11(d) (relating to licenses) will not be imposed for periods of nonpractice or practice in an exempt setting.

 (b)  A person whose psychology license is inactive or has lapsed is prohibited from practicing psychology in this Commonwealth except in exempt settings as referenced in subsection (a). An applicant for reactivation of licensure who engaged in unauthorized practice in this Commonwealth shall pay a late renewal fee of $5 for each month or part of a month during which the unauthorized practice occurred, as provided in section 225 of the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs Fee Act (63 P.S. §  1401-225). This fee is in addition to biennial renewal fees for bienniums during which unauthorized practice occurred. The payment of late fees and biennial renewal fees does not preclude the Board from taking disciplinary action against a person who practiced psychology in a nonexempt setting without a current license.


   The provisions of this §  41.13 issued and amended under section 3.2(2) of the Professional Psychologists Practice Act (63 P.S. §  1203.2(2)); and 23 Pa.C.S. §  6383(b)(2).


   The provisions of this §  41.13 adopted January 15, 1993, effective January 16, 1993, 23 Pa.B. 264; amended December 29, 2023, effective December 30, 2023, 53 Pa.B. 8229. Immediately preceding text appears at serial page (408376).
