Renew a Sanitarian or Sanitarian in Training Registration
On this page:
Each registrant is responsible for renewing the registration before the expiration date and shall not be excused from paying the renewal fee. Failure to receive notification from the department prior to the expiration date of the registration will not excuse the sanitarian from renewing.
A registrant must renew the registration every two years, as determined by the department. A sanitarian in training may only renew the registration once, for a total of four years.
Continuing Education Requirements
Registered Sanitarians must meet all continuing education requirements before a registration may be renewed.
Sanitarians in Training are not required to meet continuing education requirements.
Application and Fee
To renew a registration, an applicant must submit a completed department-approved renewal application and the required fees.

Renewal of Expired Registrations
A late renewal, if available, means the registration holder will have an unregistered period from the expiration date of the expired registration to the issuance date of the renewed registration. During the unregistered period, a person may not perform any act that requires a registration under this chapter or the chapter governing the specific program. Registrations may be eligible for late renewal with the following fees:
- A person whose license has been expired for 90 days or less may renew the license by paying to the department a renewal fee that is equal to 1-1/2 times the normally required renewal fee.
- A person whose license has been expired for more than 90 days but less than 18 months may renew the license by paying to the department a renewal fee that is equal to two times the normally required renewal fee.
- On approval by the executive director (see Request to Executive Director for Expired License Renewal Form PDF), a person whose license has been expired for at least 18 months but less than three years may renew the license by paying to the department a renewal fee equal to two times the normally required renewal fee.
- A person paying a late renewal fee is not required to pay the renewal fee in addition to the late renewal fee.
Applicants with Criminal Convictions
Please see the Guidelines for License Applicants with Criminal Convictions, which describe the process by which TDLR determines whether a criminal conviction renders an applicant an unsuitable candidate for the license, or whether a conviction warrants revocation or suspension of a license previously granted.
