SECTION 899-E
Certificate of registration; issuance or denial; renewal
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 39-E
§ 899-e. Certificate of registration; issuance or denial; renewal. 1.
Except as otherwise provided in subdivision two of this section, the
secretary of state shall issue a certificate of registration to an
individual who complies with subdivision one of section eight hundred
ninety-nine-d of this article or whose application has been accepted
under subdivision two of section eight hundred ninety-nine-d of this
article.

2. The secretary of state may refuse to issue a certificate of
registration if the secretary of state determines that the applicant has
engaged in conduct that has a significant adverse effect on the
applicant's fitness to act as an athlete agent. In making the
determination, the secretary of state may consider whether the applicant
has:

(a) been convicted of a crime that, if committed in this state, would
be a crime involving moral turpitude or a felony;

(b) made a materially false, misleading, deceptive or fraudulent
representation in the application or as an athlete agent;

(c) engaged in conduct that would disqualify the applicant from
serving in a fiduciary capacity;

(d) engaged in conduct prohibited by section eight hundred
ninety-nine-l of this article;

(e) had a registration or licensure as an athlete agent suspended,
revoked or denied, or been refused renewal of registration or licensure
as an athlete agent in any state;

(f) engaged in conduct the consequence of which was that a sanction,
suspension or declaration of ineligibility to participate in an
interscholastic or intercollegiate athletic event was imposed on a
student-athlete or educational institution; or

(g) engaged in conduct that significantly adversely reflects on the
applicant's credibility, honesty or integrity.

3. In making a determination under subdivision two of this section,
the secretary of state shall consider the factors set forth in article
twenty-three of the correction law.

4. An athlete agent may apply to renew a registration by submitting an
application for renewal in such form as shall be prescribed by the
secretary of state. An application filed pursuant to this section shall
be a public record. The application for renewal shall be signed by the
applicant under penalty of perjury and shall contain current information
on all matters required in an original registration.

5. An individual who has submitted an application for renewal of
registration or licensure in another state, in lieu of submitting an
application for renewal in the form prescribed pursuant to subdivision
four of this section, may file a copy of the application for renewal and
a valid certificate of registration or licensure from the other state.
The secretary of state shall accept the application for renewal from the
other state as an application for renewal in this state if the
application to the other state:

(a) was submitted in the other state within six months next preceding
the filing in this state and the applicant certifies the information
contained in the application for renewal is current;

(b) contains information substantially similar to or more
comprehensive than that required in an application for renewal submitted
in this state; and

(c) was signed by the applicant under penalty of perjury.

6. A certificate of registration or a renewal of a registration shall
be valid for two years.
