Iowa Admin. Code r. 641-44.4 - Application for credentialing

(1) An application for credentialing or renewal of credentials as a radon mitigation specialist shall be filed on a form prescribed by the department, shall contain complete and accurate information and shall be accompanied by the appropriate fees as outlined in subrule 44.4(6).
(2) The department may require the applicant to submit supplementary statements containing additional information to enable the department to determine whether an application should be approved or denied, or whether a previously issued credential should be amended, suspended, or revoked.
(3) Each application or supplementary statement shall be signed by either the applicant personally, or a person authorized in writing by the applicant to do so on the applicant's behalf.
(4) A credential will be valid for one year following the date of issuance. No radon abatement covered by this chapter can be commenced after the expiration of the term of credentialing unless an application for renewal has been received by the department within 30 days of the notice of expiration and the renewal application is deemed complete and acceptable by the department. All radon mitigation work commenced prior to expiration of credentialing must be completed within 3 0 days of the expiration date if renewal is not accomplished. If the application is rejected, no radon abatement may be conducted by that applicant in the state of Iowa if a financial arrangement is involved.
(5) An application to renew credentials must be on a form approved by the department and must include the number of mitigation systems installed for the renewal period and any changes in the initial credentialing application, along with the fee specified in subrule 44.4(6).
