(a) Each registrant may obtain a seal of the design authorized by the board, bearing the registrant's name, registration number, and the legend "Registered Professional Architect," "Registered Professional Engineer," "Registered Professional Land Surveyor," or "Registered Professional Landscape Architect," as appropriate. When a registrant issues final drawings, specifications, surveys, plats, plates, reports, or similar documents, the registrant shall stamp the documents with the seal and sign the seal. The board shall adopt regulations governing the use of seals by the registrant. An architect, engineer, land surveyor, or landscape architect may not affix or permit a seal and signature to be affixed to an instrument after the expiration of a certificate or for the purpose of aiding or abetting another person to evade or attempt to evade a provision of this chapter. The registrant, by affixing the registrant's seal to final drawings, specifications, surveys, plats, plates, reports, or similar documents, and by signing the seal, certifies that the documents were prepared by or under the registrant's direct supervision, are within the registrant's field of practice, or constitute design work of minor importance.
(b) Final drawings, specifications, surveys, plats, plates, reports, or similar documents containing the work of multiple fields of practice shall be sealed and signed by a registrant in each field of practice covered by the document. The registrant shall certify on the face of the document the extent of the registrant's responsibility for all work prepared under the registrant's seal. When certifying design work of minor importance, the registrant shall identify that work on the document near the registrant's seal and take responsibility for all work prepared under the registrant's seal.Section: Previous 08.48.191 08.48.200 08.48.201 08.48.210 08.48.211 08.48.215 08.48.220 08.48.221 08.48.230 08.48.231 08.48.240 08.48.241 08.48.250 08.48.251 08.48.255 Next
