Does Board regulate activities not specifically mentioned in rules?
 

Looking at the definition for AOSE and COSE, the Board does not regulate inspections that OSEs perform as part of their normal work to the health department.  If an OSE refuses to inspect a system that VDH requires must be inspected by an OSE, would the Board assist the owner or have authority to handle it?  If an OSE does not perform an adequate inspection or turns in bad work for an inspection, can the board deal with it?  If not, the defintion needs to include inspection of wells and sewage systems.
