Birth Month Expiration Info Page

The Commission began transitioning to birth month license expirations in January 2024. This current license cycle, individual forensic analyst and technician licenses will expire on the current expiration date (the one currently displayed in TopClass and in the Commission’s Licensee Database.  Once the license is renewed, the license will expire in 36 months or less on the last day of the licensee’s birth month.

Each accredited laboratory’s quality manager or other management team received a spreadsheet showing the calculation of individual analyst and technician license renewal fees for this unique license cycle. You will see this fee added to your “cart” in the Commission's application software, TopClass unless your laboratory is paying for your license for you.  Please consult your laboratory management for your individual license renewal fee.
