64. A certificate renewal application must be received by the Authority prior to expiry of the certificate, or within 30 days following its expiry, but in such case, he must demonstrate that he was unable to take action sooner.
Where a certificate renewal application is processed after the certificate expires and on receipt by the representative of a notice from the Authority to that effect, the certificate is deemed to be in effect until its renewal or until a decision of the Authority refusing the renewal.
