Governor's Executive Orders
Governor's Continuity of work EO 2020-17
On March 26, 2020, Governor Ducey issued Executive Order 2020-17, which allows agencies to defer certain license-related requirements under certain conditions. The following two portions of the Executive Order that relate to the Board's license applicants and license holders are as follows:
1. A state agency can defer license renewal if requirements cannot be fulfilled online.
The Board currently accepts online renewals and will therefore NOT defer renewal payments.
The Board will be more lenient in the acceptance of late renewal payments from international registrants, as some may not be able to renew online (international credit cards are currently not accepted) and delivery delays of international mail due to the lockdown of some nations .
2. When a pre-license examination is required that cannot be provided via electronic or remote format, a state agency must issue a provisional license to an applicant, unless prohibited by federal law or regulation, if the applicant has met all requirements for a license other than the examination.
The Board is currently working toward offering Provisional Licensing Apps. EO 2020-17, the provisional licenses will be good for six months after the date granted and will expire 20 days after pre-licensing examinations becomes available again.
