339.5205 Renewal; issuance; demonstration of unfair and inadequate requirements; fees; issuance with limitation; notice; approval or disapproval; responsibility for renewal.

Sec. 205.

    (1) Unless otherwise provided in this act and subject to the limitations set forth in this section, the department shall renew the license of a person that fulfills all of the following requirements:
    (a) Has applied to the department on a form provided by the department for renewal of the license. The completed application for renewal must be received by the department on or before the date prescribed by the department for the expiration of the current license.
    (b) Has paid the appropriate fees established by rule promulgated by the department under section 207.
    (c) Has met the renewal requirements set forth in a specific article of this act, a rule promulgated under this act, or an order issued under this act.
    (2) Except as otherwise provided in this act, the department may renew the license of an individual that does not meet the requirements for renewal if the individual demonstrates to the satisfaction of the department and a board, if applicable, in the manner required under article 5, that the requirements for renewal as set forth in a specific article of this act or a rule promulgated under this act do not constitute a fair and adequate measure of the individual's knowledge and skills or that the requirements for renewal do not serve as an adequate basis for determining whether an individual could continue to perform an occupation with competence. However, if attendance in a continuing education program is a requirement for renewal of a license, the department shall not waive that requirement under this subsection.
    (3) The department shall not issue a license under this act until the person seeking renewal pays the appropriate fees established under this act or by rule promulgated by the department under section 207.
    (4) The department may issue a license under this act with a limitation. If the department intends to place a limitation on the license of a person under a specific article of this act, the department shall notify the appropriate board of its intent, and the department may impose the limitation only with the approval of that board. However, if a board, within 60 days after it receives notification by the department under this subsection, does not approve or disapprove of the imposition of the limitation, the department may impose the limitation. A person that receives a license renewal with a limitation may receive a review of the limitation under section 533.
    (5) It is the responsibility of the licensee to renew a license. The department shall send a renewal application to the last known physical or electronic address of a licensee on file with the department. The failure of a licensee to notify the department of a change of address does not extend the expiration date of a license and may result in disciplinary action.
