The amendments to §535.216 eliminate the “lookback period” currently found in §535.93, which allows a license holder to renew after the expiration date of their license without any lapse in active licensure, as long as certain certifications are made. Under these changes, a license holder who late renews (meaning no later than 6 months after the expiration date) would automatically renew on inactive status.
