Renew a Sanitarian or Sanitarian in Training Registration

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.

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:


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.
