Late Certification Renewals - Renewals for certifications are accepted for up to one year late.  However, you will have to pay the required late fee.  It is important to note that you maintain the original date on your certification.  In other words, if you send in all appropriate forms and fees 6 months late for your specialty certification you will only have 6 more months remaining in your new certification expiration period.
