Department of Consumer Affairs Order Waiving Professional License Renewal Requirements
Pursuant to the Governor’s Executive Order N-39-20, during the State of Emergency, the Director of the California Department of Consumer Affairs may waive any statutory or regulatory renewal requirements pertaining to individuals licensed
pursuant to Division 2of the Business and Professions Code (the Code). Accordingly, for individuals whose active licenses expire between July 1, 2020, and August 31, 2020, the Director temporarily waives:
- Any statutory or regulatory requirement that individuals renewing a license pursuant to Division 2 of the Code take and pass an examination in order to renew a license; and,
- Any statutory or regulatory requirement that an individual renewing a license pursuant to Division 2 of the Code complete, or demonstrate compliance with, any continuing education requirements in order to renew a license.
These temporary waivers do not apply to any continuing education, training, or examination required pursuant to a disciplinary order against a license. Licensees must satisfy any waived renewal requirements within six months of this order, unless further extended. These temporary waivers do not relieve such individuals from timely complying with any other renewal requirements, including completing and submitting the required renewal for the governing licensing agency.
