A court reporter who wishes to cease the business of court reporting in Georgia may elect to become “inactive” by notice to the Board on a form provided by the Board, effective on the date of filing of the form with the Board. An inactive reporter shall not be required to pay dues or obtain continuing education hours. A reporter who elects inactive status, and wishes to become an active certified court reporter again in this state, must become certified again through testing. A reporter who elects inactive status shall provide the Board with an address and location for the reporter's records relating to work the reporter performed prior to becoming inactive. If a court reporter elects "inactive" status, the reporter shall not be authorized to take down any matters, but shall be authorized to certify transcripts of matters taken down prior to becoming inactive.
