(225 ILCS 411/10-20)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2021)
Application for original license or exemption.
(a) Applications for original licensure as a cemetery authority, cemetery manager, or customer service employee authorized by this Act, or application for exemption from licensure as a cemetery authority, shall be made to the Department on forms prescribed by the Department, which shall include the applicant's Social Security number or FEIN number, or both, and shall be accompanied by the required fee as set by Section 10-55 of this Act and further refined by rule. Applications for partial or full exemption from licensure as a cemetery authority shall be submitted to the Department within 6 months after the Department adopts rules under this Act. If the person fails to submit the application for partial or full exemption within this period, the person shall be subject to discipline in accordance with Article 25 of this Act. The process for renewing a full or partial exemption shall be set by rule. If a cemetery authority seeks to practice at more than one location, it shall meet all licensure requirements at each location as required by this Act and by rule, including submission of an application and fee.
(c) After initial licensure, if any person comes to obtain at least 51% of the ownership over the licensed cemetery authority, then the cemetery authority shall have to apply for a new license and receive licensure in the required time as set by rule. The current license remains in effect until the Department takes action on the application for a new license.
(d) All applications shall contain the information that, in the judgment of the Department, will enable the Department to pass on the qualifications of the applicant for an exemption from licensure or for a license to practice as a cemetery authority, cemetery manager, or customer service employee as set by rule.
