Today, the State Licensing Authority adopted emergency rules specific to reinstatement of expired business licenses.
Effective January 1, 2020, a license is immediately invalid following its expiration (please see the MED Compliance Tip for additional information). The emergency adopted rules provide a process for reinstatement of expired business licenses that meet the requirements established under the rules.
Please note that a business with an expired license cannot operate unless it receives approval for reinstatement of its license or receives a new business license. A business with an expired license must submit a new business application with requisite fees. The business may also request reinstatement of the license, but only if (a) the license expired within the previous 30 days; (b) the business submitted a new business license application with required fees; (c) the business submits reinstatement fee(s); and (d) the business can establish it has maintained or obtained a valid local license/approval. Any business with a license that has been reinstated can resume operations until final agency action is taken on its new business license application.
