(225 ILCS 130/60)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2024)
    Sec. 60. Expiration; restoration; renewal. In order to renew his or her surgical assistant registration, a registrant must maintain current certification as required by paragraph (5) of Section 45 of this Act. In order to renew his or her surgical technologist registration, a registrant must maintain current certification as required by paragraph (6) of Section 50 of this Act. The expiration date and renewal period for each certificate of registration issued under this Act shall be set by the Department by rule. Renewal shall be conditioned on paying the required fee and meeting other requirements as may be established by rule.
    A registrant who has permitted his or her registration to expire or who has had his or her registration on inactive status may have the registration restored by making application to the Department, by filing proof acceptable to the Department of his or her fitness to have the registration restored, and by paying the required fees. Proof of fitness may include sworn evidence certifying to active lawful practice in another jurisdiction.
    If the registrant has not maintained an active practice in another jurisdiction satisfactory to the Department, the Department shall determine, by an evaluation program established by rule, his or her fitness for restoration of the registration and shall establish procedures and requirements for restoration. However, a registrant whose registration expired while he or she was (1) in federal service on active duty with the Armed Forces of the United States or the State Militia called into service or training or (2) in training or education under the supervision of the United States before induction into the military service, may have the registration restored without paying any lapsed renewal fees if within 2 years after honorable termination of the service, training, or education he or she furnishes the Department with satisfactory evidence to the effect that he or she has been so engaged and that his or her service, training, or education has been so terminated.
