Rule 310
Rules Adopted by the State Board of Examiners of Court Reporters

Title and Right to Its Use; Annual Renewal of Certificate

(a) Any person to whom a certificate is issued shall have the right to use the title "Certified Court Reporter," or the abbreviation therefor, "C.C.R." Individuals to whom certificates were issued prior to July 1, 2006, may continue to use the title "Certified Shorthand Reporter," or the abbreviation therefor, "C.S.R." The use of such title or abbreviation by a person who does not hold such a certificate shall be regarded as contempt of court and may be punished accordingly.

(b) Effective July 1, 2006, certificate holders in Kansas shall register annually on a form provided by the Clerk of the Appellate Courts and shall pay a certification renewal fee established by Supreme Court Order.

On or before May 1 of each year the Clerk of the Appellate Courts shall mail to each certificate holder, at his or her last known address, a statement of the amount of the renewal fee to be paid for the next year. The registration form and renewal fee must be received in the Clerk's Office on or before June 30. Failure of any certificate holder to receive a statement from the Clerk shall not excuse payment of the renewal fee. Every certificate holder shall within thirty days after any change of address notify the Clerk of such change.

On July 1 of each year, all certificates which have not been renewed by payment of the annual renewal fee shall expire. An expired certificate may be reinstated up to and including June 30 of the following year upon payment of the delinquent renewal fee and a reinstatement fee equal in amount to the renewal fee. After that time an expired certificate shall not be subject to reinstatement without examination.

(c) A court reporter who is no longer certified may produce certified transcripts of those proceedings which took place while the reporter's certificate was valid.

[History: Am. effective January 3, 2006.]
