(a) Surgical assistants licensed by the board shall register biennially and pay a fee. A surgical assistant may, on notification from the board, renew an unexpired licensed by submitting a required form and paying the required renewal fee to the board on or before the expiration date of the license. The fee shall accompany a written application that sets forth the licensee's name, mailing address, the address of each of the licensee's offices, and other necessary information prescribed by the board.

(b) The board may prorate the length of the initial surgical assistant registration and registration fees, so that registrations expire on a single date, regardless of the board meeting at which the surgical assistant is licensed.

(c) The board shall provide written notice to each practitioner at the practitioner's address of record at least 30 days prior to the expiration date of the license.

(d) Within 30 days of a surgical assistant's change of mailing or office address from the address on file with the board, a surgical assistant shall notify the board in writing of such change.

(e) A licensee shall furnish a written explanation of his or her affirmative answer to any question asked on the application for license renewal, if requested by the board. This explanation shall include all details as the board may request and shall be furnished within 14 days of the date of the board's request.

(f) Falsification of an affidavit or submission of false information to obtain renewal of a license shall subject a surgical assistant to denial of the renewal and/or to discipline pursuant to §206.301 of the Act.

(g) Expired Annual Registration Permits.

(1) If a surgical assistant's registration permit has been expired for 90 days or less, the surgical assistant may obtain a new permit by submitting to the board a completed permit application, the registration fee, and the penalty fee, as defined in § 175.3(6) of this title (relating to Penalties).

(2) If a surgical assistant's registration permit has been expired for longer than 90 days but less than one year, the surgical assistant may obtain a new permit by submitting a completed permit application, the registration fee, and a penalty fee as defined in § 175.3(6) of this title.

(3) If a surgical assistant's registration permit has been expired for one year or longer, the surgical assistant's license is automatically canceled, unless an investigation is pending, and the surgical assistant may not obtain a new permit.

(4) A surgical assistant may not hold himself out as a licensed surgical assistant if he holds an expired permit.

(h) A military service member who holds a surgical assistant license in Texas is entitled to two years of additional time to complete any other requirement related to the renewal of the military service member's license.
