(1) Has used dishonesty, fraud or deceit in obtaining or attempting to obtain registration under ORS 671.310 to 671.459, including but not limited to dishonesty, fraud or deceit in applying for registration, applying to sit for an examination or passing an examination.

(2) Is impersonating or has attempted to impersonate a registered landscape architect or a former registered landscape architect, or is practicing under an assumed or fictitious name.

(3) Has used dishonesty, fraud or deceit or has been negligent, in the practice of landscape architecture.

(4) Has affixed the personís signature to plans, reports or other professional documents that have not been prepared by the person or under the personís immediate and responsible direction or has permitted the use of the personís name for the purpose of assisting any individual, not a registered landscape architect, to evade the provisions of ORS 671.310 to 671.459, 671.992 and 671.995.
