Frequently Asked Practice Questions
We are pleased to provide you with the following list of questions and answers about licensure and practice for licensed professional geologists. This information is intended to provide general guidance to those who may have questions about licensing or professional conduct. The answers to the questions have been derived from provisions of Education Law, Commissioner's Regulations and Rules of the Board of Regents and administrative decisions made by the State Education Department. While they reflect provisions of Law, Regulation and interpretations, the legal application will depend upon the facts of a particular situation. Title VIII of the New York State Education Law and Title 8 of the Codes, Rules and Regulations of the State of New York (8NYCRR) control both licensing and professional regulation. See pertinent sections of the Law, Rules and Regulations at Education Law. If you have questions that are not directly addressed by this section or believe special factual circumstances may distinguish your question from those addressed here, you are advised to consult private legal counsel or you may contact the Office of the Professions' State Board for Engineering, Land Surveying and Geology.
