Hearing Officer’s Report and Rules Comments

The North Carolina Board for Licensing of Geologists is revising the rules relating to the practice of geology in North Carolina.  We are making these changes to update the Board’s mailing address, include gender neutral language throughout the rules, add a continuing education requirement for licensees, clarify the investigative process, and create inactive status for retired licensees. A public hearing for these proposed revisions was held on January 4, 2017. Written comments were also accepted. The comment period for the proposed changes ended on February 13, 2017.

The Hearing Officer's Report and copy of original comments can be found in the Download Center on the "About NCBLG" page of the website.

The Board will meet on Tuesday, April 18, 2017 to review, discuss and approve the Hearing Officer's Report.  The public is invited to attend.  Check the "Meetings" page of the website for time and location.
