Licensees are responsible for the renewal of their license and are required, per 61-23-20 D. and 61-23-27.7 D. of the NM Engineering and Surveying Practice Act, for keeping the Board apprised of any changes of addresses.
The Board office will send email reminders between October and November regarding license renewal to the addresses on file. Please Note: As per The Engineering and Surveying Practice Act 61-23-20 (D) “Each licensee shall have the responsibility to notify the board of any change of address within thirty days of the change” and 61-23-27.7 (D) “It shall be the responsibility of the licensee to notify the board of any change of address and to keep the license current”. Failing to do this may cause problems mailing out vital information needed to renew a license.
License renewal is accomplished upon payment of the required fee and satisfactory completion of the requirements of professional development. Every license shall automatically expire if not renewed on or before December 31 of the applicable biennial period. A delinquent licensee may renew a license by the payment of twice the biennial renewal fee at any time before March 1, but the delinquent licensee shall not practice during this period. Should the licensee apply to renew an expired license after the March 1 deadline has elapsed, the licensee shall submit a formal application and fee as provided in Section 61-23-17 NMSA 1978. The board, in considering the reapplication, need not question the applicant’s qualifications for licensure unless the qualifications have changed since the license expired and/or the applicant has not acquired the appropriate Professional Development Hours (PDHs) as required by the New Mexico Administrative Code 16.9.2 for the reinstatement of a license.
All odd-numbered licenses need to be renewed by December 31st of each odd-numbered year. All even-numbered licenses need to be renewed by December 31st of each even-numbered year.
