18VAC25-21-40. License by reciprocity.
The board may issue a license to any individual applicant holding a license in any state, territory, or possession of the United States, with whom the board has established an act of reciprocity provided the requirements and standards under which the license was issued are substantially equivalent to those established by the board. At the time of application for licensure, the applicant must be currently licensed in the state in which reciprocity is established with the Commonwealth of Virginia. The board may deny an application if the licensed auctioneer has been found guilty (i) by any regulatory board or agency to have violated any applicable regulations or laws in the course of performing auctioneering duties or (ii) by a court of any criminal offense or material misrepresentation in the course of performing auctioneer duties. A certified copy of a final order, decree or case decision by a court or regulatory agency with the lawful authority to issue such order shall be admissible as prima facie evidence of such conviction or discipline.
Nonresident applicants shall also file with the board an irrevocable consent that service of process upon the director is valid and binding as the service of process upon the applicant.
