    Sec. 70. Inactive status; restoration; military service.
    (a) Any person who notifies the Department in writing on forms prescribed by the Department may elect to place his or her license on an inactive status and shall, subject to rules of the Department, be excused from payment of renewal fees until he or she notifies the Department in writing of the desires to resume active status.
    (b) A licensee who has permitted his or her license to expire or who has had his or her license on inactive status may have the license restored by making application to the Department by filing proof acceptable to the Department of his or her fitness to have the license restored and by paying the required fees. Proof of fitness may include sworn evidence certifying to active lawful practice in another jurisdiction. If the licensee has not maintained an active practice in another jurisdiction satisfactory to the Department, then the Department shall determine, by an evaluation program established by rule, his or her fitness for restoration of the license and shall establish procedures and requirements for restoration.
    (c) A licensee whose license 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 license 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.
    (d) Any person requesting restoration from inactive status shall be required to pay the current renewal fee, shall meet continuing education requirements, and shall be required to restore his or her license as provided in Section 65 of this Act.
    (e) A person licensed under this Act whose license is on inactive status or in a non-renewed status shall not engage in the practice of dietetics or nutrition services in the State of Illinois or use the title or advertise that he or she performs the services of a licensed dietitian nutritionist.
    (f) Any person violating this Section shall be considered to be practicing without a license and will be subject to the disciplinary provisions of this Act.
