CHAPTER 2: Rules for Architects, Landscape Architects and Interior Designers
STATUTORY AUTHORITY: 32 M.R.S.A. §214 (1)
PURPOSE: This Chapter sets the qualifications for licensure, a code of conduct and the fee schedule. Section 1 may be repealed as the address for the Board has changed and the purpose for this section is no longer necessary. Section 2 may be amended to adopt an experience-only licensure option for Architects. Section 7 may be amended to require interior designers to pay an application fee and the exam fee, by section, may be repealed because the fee is now paid to the testing company.

Finally, the Board may clarify the term “broadly experienced.” The Board does not plan to use consensus-based rule development in proposing changes.
ANTICIPATED SCHEDULE: Within 1 year, if necessary.
