N.Y. General Business Law Section 89-M
Renewal of registration cards


Registration cards shall expire two years from the date of issuance or last renewal as the case may be. Not less than sixty nor more than ninety days prior to the expiration date of a registration card, the department shall mail to each registrant at his last known address, notice of renewal and a registration renewal form. Registration cards shall not be renewed unless not more than sixty nor less than thirty days prior to the expiration date of the registration card, the holder submits to the department, a registration renewal form sworn to or affirmed by the holder under the penalty of perjury together with a biennial renewal fee in the amount of twenty-five dollars payable to the department and a certificate certifying that the holder has satisfactorily completed the required annual in-service training courses as prescribed by the commissioner pursuant to subdivision one of Executive Law § 841-C (Functions, powers and duties of the commissioner with respect to the council)section eight hundred forty-one-c of the executive law. Unless the department determines the existence of facts which would constitute cause for denial, revocation or suspension of the registration card pursuant to this article, it shall renew the registration card. Denial of renewal hereunder shall be reviewable by an administrative hearing as set forth in § 79 (Hearings, notice, determinations, review)section seventy-nine of this chapter. The twenty-five dollar biennial renewal fee collected by the department shall be deposited to the licensing examinations services account established pursuant to the provisions of State Finance Law § 97-AA (The New York state “Discover Queens fund”)section 97-aa of the state finance law. Notice that a registration card has expired or has not been renewed pursuant to this section shall be given by the secretary to the holder of such registration card and to the security guard company by which such holder was employed at the time of such expiration or non-renewal.


A registration card which was not renewed or which expired may be reissued only in a manner prescribed by rules and regulations promulgated by the department.
