Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation NEW Variance dated 9/1/21
This is a paragraph from the IDFPR notice, linked below.
This variance is granted based upon the transition, in the spring and summer of 2021, to new data and operating systems utilized by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (“Department”), and the Department’s determination that certain licensees did not or may not have received notices and instructions concerning the required renewal via electronic mail (“e-mail”) during this period.
This Variance is in no way intended to waive or modify any other statute, rule, or regulation concerning the registration of Cosmetologists and Estheticians nor to extend the active registration period beyond the expiration date for licensees otherwise required to be renewed by September 30, 2021. Licenses renewed through December 31, 2021, during the extended renewal period granted by this Variance, shall expire at the end of the ordinary renewal period designated by the relevant regulation applicable to the profession.
