2012 Statute


74-7023.Examinations, time, place, scope, method of procedure; license, issuance, contents, evidence; seal, purchase and use, conditions. (a) All examinations required by K.S.A. 74-7001 et seq., and amendments thereto, shall be held at such time and place as the board determines. The scope of the examinations, methods of procedure and eligibility to take examinations, including reexaminations, shall be prescribed by the board.

(b) The board, after receiving satisfactory evidence of the qualifications of an applicant and after satisfactory examination of the applicant, shall issue a license authorizing the applicant to practice the technical profession for which the applicant is qualified and to use the title appropriate to such technical profession.

(c) Each license shall show the full name of the licensee, shall have a serial number and shall be signed by the chairperson and the secretary of the board under seal of the board. The issuance of a license by the board shall be prima facie evidence that the person named on the license is legally licensed and is entitled to all the rights and privileges of a licensed practitioner of the technical profession for which the licensee is licensed while the license remains unrevoked and unexpired.

(d) Each licensee shall purchase a seal of a distinctive design authorized by the board, bearing the licensee's name and number and a uniform inscription formulated by the board. Documents, reports, legal descriptions, records and papers signed by the licensee in the licensee's professional capacity shall be stamped with the seal during the duration of the license, but it shall be unlawful for anyone to stamp any document with the seal after the license has expired or has been revoked, unless the license has been renewed or reissued. No person shall tamper with or revise the seal without express written approval by the board.

(e) Any person licensed hereunder may stamp any documents submitted to such licensee by any practitioner of a technical profession licensed in another state upon assuming full responsibility for furnishing complete and adequate observation of the work covered by the documents to which the licensee has affixed the seal.
