Adopted and Filed

Rule making related to organization and operation

The Professional Licensing and Regulation Bureau hereby amends Chapter 1, "Organization and Operation," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rule Making

This rule making is adopted under the authority provided in Iowa Code sections 546.3 and 546.10.

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rule making implements, in whole or in part, Iowa Code chapters 542, 542B, 543B, 544A, 544B and 544C and section 546.10.

Purpose and Summary

The Professional Licensing and Regulation Bureau of the Banking Division coordinates the functions of six professional licensing boards. Chapter 1 describes the organization of the Bureau. These amendments update the chapter to reflect legislative changes to the Bureau and its boards. The amendment relating to the composition of the Engineering and Land Surveying Examining Board reflects a change made in 2018 Iowa Acts, House File 2382. The amendment relating to the Architectural Examining Board changes the terminology from "registered" to "licensed" as a result of 2017 Iowa Acts, Senate File 408. The change of title from "registered" to "professional" relating to the membership of the Landscape Architectural Examining Board reflects the terminology used in Iowa Code section 544B.3. Striking the subrule providing for the Real Estate Appraiser Examining Board is the result of 2016 Iowa Acts, House File 2436. The amendment in Item 4 allows for staff to remove abandoned applications from the licensing database.
