Board for Architects, Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors, Certified Interior Designers, and Landscape Architects Regulations [18 VAC 10 ‑ 20]
Action:
General Review 2017
 
General Information
Action Summary The goal of the regulatory review action is to ensure the Board’s regulations are clearly written and easily understandable; reflective of changes in technology and training; and representative of current professional and industry standards. The regulations will also be reviewed for consistency, and language may be modified for ease of understanding by the general public and regulants. The Board may make other changes it identifies as necessary during the regulatory review process. Although the last general review of the Board’s regulations became effective on January 1, 2016, that regulatory action was first initiated in 2010. In the time elapsed since that NOIRA and its final stage approval at the end of CY 2015, professional and industry standards appear to have changed enough to warrant another review. Ensuring that Board regulations remain consistent with current professional practice standards is essential for establishing regulants’ minimum qualifications to perform their duties while protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of the Commonwealth.
