Renewals for professional engineer and professional land surveyor licenses.

(1) Licenses for professional engineers or professional land surveyors shall be renewed every two years. The date of expiration shall be the licensee's birthday. The initial license issued to an individual shall expire no earlier than one year after the issue date.
(2) To renew your license, complete an application for renewal, pay the required renewal fee, and provide the information requested in the renewal notice and application form. This information may include email address or other contact information and information regarding prior unprofessional conduct pursuant to RCW 18.235.110 and 18.235.130. Information regarding unprofessional conduct will be evaluated by the board to determine whether it is related to the practice of the applicant's profession.
(3) For a professional land surveyor the renewal application requires completion of professional development requirements and an attestation by the applicant that they have read chapters 58.09 RCW and 332-130 WAC as part of the renewal process.
(4) If a completed application for renewal has not been received by the board by the date of expiration (postmarked before the date of expiration if mailed or transacted online before the date of expiration), the license is invalid. Renewals that remain expired over 90 days past the date of expiration require payment of a late fee equivalent to the fee for a one-year renewal in addition to the base renewal fee, and completing of a renewal application.
(5) If your license has been expired for five or more years, you must submit a renewal application and you will be required to take and receive a passing score on the board's law review examination. In the first year of reactivated practice professional land surveyors may be required by the board to collect an additional 15 professional development hours (PDH). The licensee is responsible for timely renewal whether or not they received a renewal notice from the department.
