Your state board has issued the following statement: In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the emergency measures taken in Ohio, as part of House Bill 197, all expiration dates occurring during the emergency period are being extended until December 1, 2020 or 90 days after the date the emergency provisions have been lifted, whichever comes first. This change directly affects the company license and company renewals with an expiration of June 30, 2020. The renewal period for our company renewals will still open May 1, 2020 through the online system. As always, the board encourages any company or firm that is still able to do their normal renewal during the normal renewal period to renewal as early as possible but we do acknowledge we are in a very difficult time therefore the renewal period will remain open until December 1, 2020 or 90 days after the end of the emergency for regular renewal. If the date of expiration occurs before December 1, 2020, the Board will notify our companies and firms as soon as we can regarding the change. The board will still be emailing renewal notices on May 1, 2020 to reflect the above information. The company renewal will be available through the online portal as of May 1, 2020. More information regarding the company renewal, instructions for renewing in the portal, and any necessary renewal documents can be found under the FIRM|COA tab at the top of the Board’s website.

We urge all engineers to check their state board website for the most recent information.
