Be Wary of External Influences
on Your License

Everyday A/E professionals focus on practice management, project management, marketing, business development and the business of keeping clients informed and happy. All this doesn't necessarily allow for paying close attention to changes that frequently and maybe unexpectedly occur with A/E professional and business licensing requirements. Take for instance, the work of the Kansas Board of Technical Professions (representing architects, engineers, landscape architects, surveyors and geologists) and industry groups that engaged in research to update professional licensing statutes for four years and resulted in signed legislation effective July 1, 2014. Unfortunately the revised Kansas law has unintended consequences and created unanticipated hardships for engineers and certain segments of the architecture profession.

On May 21 the Kansas Legislature passed and the Governor signed a revision to the 2014 technical profession statute. Wyatt Hoch, Atty, Partner at Foulston Siefkin LLP, leader of the firm's construction law practice, once again stated the Kansas House and Senate passed a "limited fix" to make it legal for engineers to seal their work product. He says "they have made the preparation of drawings/specs" a "common technical service" that architects, engineers and landscape architects can now all legally perform. The following is a brief excerpt from the new legislation, effective 7/1/15: K.S.A. 2014 Supp. 74-7003 (3) g. "Common technical services" means.....(10) preparing and providing drawings, specifications and other technical submissions."

Yes, it is a year later. But whether you agree or disagree with the latest Kansas Board of Technical Professions licensing statute revision, we advise staying alert to proposed licensing statute revisions for any jurisdiction where you maintain active registration.

Don't suffer unintended consequences to your professional credentials by being uninformed, allowing mismanagement to take hold or simply succumb to records retention neglect.
