49 Pa. Code § 45.14. Reactivation of licensure status.

§ 45.14. Reactivation of licensure status.

 (a)  A licensee who wishes to reactivate an expired or inactive license shall apply for reactivation, pay the current registration fee and verify that the licensee has not practiced in this Commonwealth while the license was expired or inactive.

 (b)  A licensee shall pay a late renewal fee for the preceding biennial registration periods in which the licensee engaged in practice in this Commonwealth while the license was expired or inactive.

 (c)  With the exception of individuals exempt from licensure under section 6(b)(2) of the act (63 P.S. §  1706(b)(2)), licensees who practice in this Common- wealth during a period in which the licensees’ registration is not renewed shall pay a late fee of $5 for each month or part of a month beyond the date specified for renewal, as provided in section 225 of the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs Fee Act (63 P.S. §  1401-225), in addition to the prescribed biennial renewal fee. The payment of a late fee does not preclude the Board from taking disciplinary action against a licensee for practicing in this Commonwealth without a current license.

 (d)  A licensee whose license has lapsed, been suspended or placed on inactive status for more than 5 years shall demonstrate continued competency to reactivate the license by doing one of the following:

   (1)  Successfully complete the initial licensing examination approved by the Board.

   (2)  Successfully complete the required continuing education in §  45.501(a) (relating to credit hour requirements) for the biennial periods during which the license was lapsed, suspended or inactive.

   (3)  Provide evidence to the Board that the applicant has a license in good standing to practice speech-language pathology or audiology in another jurisdiction that has substantially similar requirements for licensure and has engaged in practice in the other jurisdiction at some period within the last 5 years.


   The provisions of this §  45.14 amended under sections 5(2) and (7), 7(d)(1), 8(a) and 8.1 of the Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists Licensure Act (63 P.S. § §  1705(2) and (7), 1707(d)(1), 1708(a) and 1708.1); and section 810(a)(3) and (7) of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P.S. §  279.1(a)(3) and (7)).
