General License Status Definitions. Check with the local board or registration agency to confirm the requirements and details of each status category in their jurisdiction.  Not all agencies have all license status types.

Active Status
Individual has complied with all the licensure and licensure renewal requirements (including CPD/PDH training requirements) of the Board and may offer and/or provide professional engineering services in the approved jurisdiction.

Inactive Status
Individual has chosen not to offer and/or provide professional engineering services in a jurisdiction.  Individual can represent himself/herself to the public as a P.E. Inactive, or a P.L.S. Inactive, but cannot otherwise offer and/or provide professional engineering services.  CPD requirements typically do not apply.  If you wish to retain your license but not practice, you may petition to have your license placed in an inactive status.  Each division/board has its own rules and regulations relating to this "inactive" status.

Retired Status
Individual has chosen not to offer and/or provide professional services in a jurisdiction.  Individual must have been a licensee PE of the Board for 20 to 35+ years or licensed PE in the US for at least 20 years (jurisdictions vary, confirm with the engineering board).  Individual can represent himself/herself to the public as a P.E. Retired, or a P.L.S. Retired, but cannot otherwise offer and/or provide professional services in the jurisdiction.  CPD requirements typically do not apply.

Expired Status
Individual has failed to properly renew licensure with the Board and may no longer offer and/or provide professional services in the jurisdiction.  To reinstate his/her license, the individual must submit to the Board an Application to Reinstate Expired Professional License.


Revoked Status
The individual may not practice or offer to practice engineering or represent themselves as engineers in jurisdictions where licenses are revoked. The board of professional engineers takes back an individuals engineering license for the affected jurisdiction.  This may be for disciplinary reasons or other factors determined by the board including major violations in other jurisdictions. To reinstate his/her license, the individual must submit to the Board an Application to Reinstate and only where approved by the board will the license be reinstated.

Suspended Status
The individual may not practice or offer to practice engineering or represent themselves as engineers in jurisdictions where licenses are suspended. The board temporarily takes back an engineering license for a defined period of time or until a certain action is taken. Suspended licenses are often the result of disciplinary action, or to protect public safety in the boards determination, or a court order such a lack of paying child support or some other warrant.  Reinstatement can occur with the board by providing documentation that the individual has complied with the court order and the issue has been resolved and the engineering board approving to remove the suspension. A hearing by the board is often schedules within 30 days of a suspension being issued to review the issue with the individual.
