Current through March 20, 2022

(1) Application files are not complete until all information and fees have been received by the Committee Office. Preliminary review of all applications to determine whether or not the application file is complete may be delegated by the Committee to the Committee designee.
(2) Completed applications may only be approved by a Committee member, by the Committee consultant, or by the Committee designee for a temporary authorization pursuant to T.C.A. §§ 63-1-142 and 63-31-107.
(3) If an application is incomplete when received in the Committee Office, in addition to other reasonable efforts to correct the deficiency, a deficiency letter will be sent by mail to the applicant notifying them of the deficiency. This letter shall request specified additional material necessary to complete the application. The requested information must be received in the Committee Office on or before the sixtieth (60th) day after the mailing date of the notification. In the event it is not received within sixty (60) days then the application shall be closed and the applicant may reapply.
(4) If a completed application is denied by the Committee, the action shall become final and the following shall occur:
(a) The Committee Office shall send notification of the denial by certified mail, return receipt requested. Specific reasons for denial will be stated, such as incomplete or unofficial records, examination failure, or other matters judged insufficient for licensure, and such notification shall contain all the specific statutory or administrative authorities for the denial.
(b) If an applicant believes that a denial was in error they may request, in writing, to appear before the Committee not less than thirty (30) days before the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Committee.
(5) The issuance of a license or permit to an applicant who otherwise may be entitled to full licensure, may be withheld, denied, conditioned or restricted in any manner the Committee deems necessary to protect the public.
