160-40- 490 Licensee responsibility. (Signature and seal)
I applaud the inclusion of the requirement of signature(s), dates, and license number to final work products as a safeguard to the safety, health, and welfare of the public.
Has the Board considered what assurance the public or another professional has regarding articals of service. It remains a widespread conclusion of all design practices that without a regulated seal any number of faux seals are in widespread distribution and may be attached to certify a document which serves to confuse issues of responsibility or authenticity.
Did the Board intend to create a Christmas tree of red tape for the public to sort out in finding responsible party?
B. [ The licensee shall sign, date, and include his license number on all final work products prepared or reviewed and approved by the licensee. For work products performed by a journeyman licensee, the master licensee providing direct supervision shall sign, date, and include his license number, along with the journeyman's signature, date, and license number on the final work product. A journeyman licensee shall not submit a work project as final without the applicable master licensee's signature, date, and license number.
Confusion remains over which pages of a document should bear a symbol of authenticity; where must a seal be affixed (e.g. every page, cover sheet, the site plan, survey plat signature block).
