(1) The State Board of Geologist Examiners shall issue a certificate of registration, upon payment of the registration fee, to any applicant who, in the opinion of the board, has satisfactorily met all the requirements of ORS 672.505 (Definitions for ORS 672.505 to 672.705) to 672.705 (Fees). The issuance of a certificate of registration by the board shall be prima facie evidence that the person named therein is entitled to all the rights and privileges of a registered geologist, or certified specialty geologist, while the certificate remains unrevoked or unexpired.

All applications for renewal shall be filed with the administrator before the expiration date, accompanied by the annual renewal fee. A license which has expired for failure to renew may only be restored after application and payment of the prescribed restoration fee.

(3) Reduced annual renewal fees for registrants reaching the age of 70 may be established by action of the board.

(4) A new certificate of registration to replace any certificate lost, destroyed, or mutilated, may be issued subject to the rules of the board and payment of the fee. [1977 c.612 §11; 1997 c.643 §23]
