:01. Seals. A licensed professional engineer, architect, land surveyor, or landscape architect is responsible for the security and proper use of an appropriate seal. No petroleum release assessor, petroleum release remediator, or intern may obtain or use a seal. Improper use of the seal is grounds for disciplinary action. The seal shall be used on all final documents, including plats, reports, plans, specifications, and construction administration. Failure to sign and seal any final work product constitutes a violation and shall be handled as a disciplinary action. The seal implies responsibility for the entire submission unless the area of responsibility is clearly identified in the information accompanying the seal. Drawings prepared by licensed professional consultants, such as structural, mechanical, or electrical engineers, shall have the seal and license number of the consultant in responsible charge on each sheet of those drawings. Any exempt project services performed by a licensed professional shall be sealed. Review drafts or presentation documents, such as renderings or drawings used to communicate conceptual information only, are not required to be signed and sealed.
