License renewals.

(1) When are fire protection sprinkler system contractor licenses required to be renewed? All licensed fire protection sprinkler system contractors desiring to continue to be licensed must renew their license before January 1 of each year. The application for renewal must be made upon a form prescribed by the director. Any contractor not wishing to renew their license at the beginning of the year should notify the director of the intention not to renew.
(2) What happens if the contractor does not renew its license by the expiration date? A licensed contractor that fails to secure renewal of the license by the expiration date will:

(b) Submit a new license application pursuant to WAC 212-80-053 to obtain a fire sprinkler protection system contractor license.
(3) Are there reasons why the director would not renew a fire protection sprinkler system contractor license? Yes. The director will not renew a license that has been suspended by the director, or if the general or specialty license issued by the department of labor and industries has been suspended or revoked.
