Chapter 50-2 REGISTRATION TO PRACTICE UNDER TITLE OF ARCHITECT
|(1)||Except as provided in paragraph (2) any person wishing to practice architecture in this State under the title of "Architect" shall, before being presented or known as an Architect and before undertaking in any manner to practice architecture in this State, shall make application to the State Board of Architects and Interior Designers and, upon being found qualified by the Board, secure there from a certificate of qualification to practice under the title "Architect" and be duly registered. Application forms may be acquired from the Division Director and each applicant shall be required to certify thereon that he has read and studied the Law.|
|(2)||Nothing in this section shall disallow an architect, who is duly licensed to practice architecture in a state other than Georgia or another country and who also holds an NCARB certificate, from offering architectural services in response to a request for qualifications, during an interview, or through a design competition. Any offering or practice beyond this exception requires registration as a Georgia Architect.|
The State Board of Architects and Interior Designers shall issue certificates of qualification to, and duly register, all applicants found to be entitled to practice under the title of "Architect" as provided in the Law of the State and the Rules and Regulations of the Board. Each certificate shall be signed by the President of the Board and the Division Director.
