Rule 20:38:37:01 Seals.
:01. Seals. A licensed
professional engineer, architect, land surveyor, or landscape architect is
responsible for the security and proper use of an appropriate seal. No
petroleum release assessor, petroleum release remediator, or intern may obtain
or use a seal. Improper use of the seal is grounds for disciplinary action. The
seal shall be used on all final documents, including plats, reports, plans,
specifications, and construction administration. Failure to sign and seal any
final work product constitutes a violation and shall be handled as a
disciplinary action. The seal implies responsibility for the entire submission
unless the area of responsibility is clearly identified in the information
accompanying the seal. Drawings prepared by licensed professional consultants,
such as structural, mechanical, or electrical engineers, shall have the seal
and license number of the consultant in responsible charge on each sheet of
those drawings. Any exempt project services performed by a licensed professional
shall be sealed. Review drafts or presentation documents, such as renderings or
drawings used to communicate conceptual information only, are not required to
be signed and sealed.
