(a) A licensee may at any time voluntarily offer to
surrender his or her license for any reason, without compulsion. If
there is no complaint pending, board staff shall accept the surrender
and void the license.
(b) When a licensee has offered the surrender of his
or her license after a complaint has been filed which alleges violations
of the Act or this chapter, the board shall consider whether to accept
the license surrender. If the board accepts such a surrender, that
surrender is deemed to be the result of a formal disciplinary action
and shall be reported as formal disciplinary action. Surrender of
a license without acceptance by the board shall not deprive the board
of jurisdiction over the licensee in accordance with the Act or other
(c) Reinstatement. A license which has been surrendered
and accepted may not be reinstated; however, a person may apply for
a new license in accordance with the Act and this chapter.
