b) The Agency shall issue and recognize the following types of accreditation:
1) Active Status Accreditation for persons who have passed an examination as indicated in Section 401.70(b).

2) Temporary accreditation for persons who have completed an approved program in medical radiography, nuclear medicine technology or radiation therapy technology and are eligible for the examination specified in Section 401.70(b). Temporary Accreditation shall convey the same rights as the Active Status Accreditation for which the individual is awaiting examination.

c) All persons who have received accreditation from the Agency shall notify the Agency of any permanent or temporary change in their designated mailing address and of any change in name within 30 days after that change. Failure of the accredited individual to notify the Agency of any change shall not be considered a valid cause for delaying any subsequent administrative proceeding involving the particular accredited individual nor excuse the accredited individual from complying with any other legal obligations from the laws and rules administered by the Agency.
d) The duration of issuance of Active Status, Temporary, Conditional Type I, Conditional Type II or Limited Diagnostic Radiography Accreditation shall be 2 years. Temporary accreditation is nonrenewable.
e) The expiration date of a renewed accreditation that has been renewed on or before the expiration of the previous accreditation shall be 2 years from the expiration date of the previous accreditation.
