(1) Except as otherwise provided in this section, a license issued under ORS 690.365 (License fee) expires one year after the date of issue unless renewed by payment of the required renewal fee. The Oregon Health Licensing Agency, however, may vary the date of license renewal by giving to the applicant written notice of the renewal date being assigned and by making prorated adjustments in the renewal fee. If payment is transmitted by postal service, the envelope must be postmarked on or before the expiration of the license. If the license expires, the license may be renewed on payment of a renewal fee and late penalty fee established by the agency under ORS 690.350 (Definitions for ORS 690.350 to 690.430) to 690.430 (Duties of advisory council).

(2) The agency may suspend the license of any person who fails to renew. A suspended license may be reactivated upon the payment of a reactivation fee established by the agency under ORS 690.350 (Definitions for ORS 690.350 to 690.430) to 690.430 (Duties of advisory council) and all past unpaid renewal fees.

(3) A person applying for reactivation shall not be required to take an examination as a condition of reactivation if the reactivation occurs within three years after the date of the license expired.

(4) All electrologists and permanent color technicians and tattoo artists must participate in continuing education, with guidelines and effective date to be established by rule of the agency. [1987 c.698 §9; 1993 c.30 §6; 2001 c.104 §267; 2003 c.547 §56; 2005 c.648 §71]
