(1) Each registrant who desires to continue as an architect in this state shall annually submit to the State Board of Architect Examiners, on or before the renewal deadline established by board rule, a renewal application and the renewal fee authorized under ORS 671.085 (Fees). The registrant shall also furnish evidence satisfactory to the board that the registrant has complied with any continuing education requirements adopted by the board under ORS 671.125 (Rulemaking authority of board), unless those requirements have been waived. Upon payment and, if required, the furnishing of satisfactory evidence, the board shall issue to the registrant a certificate of renewal of registration for a period of one year.

(2) If a registrant fails to have a certificate renewed on or before the renewal deadline established by board rule, the registrant is delinquent. The registrant may renew the certificate not later than the 30th day after the renewal date, without penalty, if the registrant pays the renewal fee and furnishes evidence satisfactory to the board that the registrant has complied with any continuing education requirements adopted by the board under ORS 671.125 (Rulemaking authority of board), unless those requirements have been waived. The registrant may renew the certificate after the 30th day after the renewal date, if the registrant pays the renewal fee plus a late fee in an amount to be prescribed by the board by rule, and furnishes evidence satisfactory to the board that the registrant has complied with any continuing education requirements adopted by the board under ORS 671.125 (Rulemaking authority of board), unless those requirements have been waived.

(3) Any person who fails to pay the renewal fee, with any late fees, or fails to furnish evidence satisfactory to the board that the registrant has complied with any continuing education requirements adopted by the board under ORS 671.125 (Rulemaking authority of board), unless those requirements have been waived, for a period of 60 days, forfeits the right to practice architecture in this state. The person may be reinstated as an architect only upon passing examinations required by the board, by complying with any continuing education requirements adopted by the board under ORS 671.125 (Rulemaking authority of board) and by paying any required fees and penalties.

(4) The board may grant inactive status to any registered architect who gives up the practice and while in good standing makes a request in writing to the board. The architect may resume practice by complying with any continuing education requirements adopted by the board under ORS 671.125 (Rulemaking authority of board) and paying any required fees and penalties.
