This designation shall be issued automatically and added to an individual's PEL. The designation will be issued for the same validity period as the NBPTS certification and will be removed from the individual's PEL when the individual no longer holds the certification from NBPTS.
NO APPLICATION OR FORMS NEED TO BE SUBMITTED.
