For individuals served prior to June 20, 1997 with an order of revocation, acceptance of surrender, or denial of an application for restoration or reinstatement by vote of the Board of Regents, at least one year shall have elapsed from the date of such service for the acceptance by the department of a petition to the Board of Regents for restoration of a license or certificate, except that a period of time during which the license was suspended during the pendency of the discipline proceeding may reduce the one-year waiting period. For individuals served on or after June 20, 1997 with an order of revocation, acceptance of surrender, or denial of an application for restoration or reinstatement by vote of the Board of Regents, at least three years shall have elapsed from the date of such service for the acceptance by the department of a petition to the Board of Regents for restoration of a license or certificate, except that a period of time during which the license was suspended during the pendency of the discipline proceeding may reduce the three- year waiting period. This section shall not apply to restoration of licenses which have been temporarily surrendered pursuant to Education Law, section 6510-b, or Public Health Law, section 230(13).
