(1) Any renewal applicant seeking renewal of a license without having fully complied with these CE requirements shall file with the Board a renewal application along with the required renewal fee, a statement setting forth the facts concerning non-compliance and request a waiver of the CE requirements on the basis of these facts. A request for waiver shall be made prior to the renewal date.

Extreme hardship shall be determined on an individual basis by the Board and be defined as an inability to devote sufficient hours to fulfilling the CE requirements during the application pre-renewal period because of:
(a) Full-time service in the armed forces of the United States during a substantial part of the pre-renewal period;
(b) An incapacitating illness documented by a statement from a currently licensed physician;
(c) A physical inability to travel to the sites of approved programs documented by a currently licensed physician;
(d) Being retired from practice and not performing reporting services, or
(e) Any other similar extenuating circumstances.
(2) Any renewal applicant who, prior to the expiration date of the license, submits a request for a waiver, in whole or in part, pursuant to the provisions of this Section, shall be deemed to be in good standing until the final decision on the applicant is made by the Board.
