Proposed Regulations

A summary of currently proposed amended regulations and the economic impact of each follows. A public hearing will be held on April 26, 2019 at the regularly scheduled Board meeting for public comments. To receive the full regulations please e-mail ksbtpadmin@ks.gov and they will be provided within 1 business day. 

K.A.R. 66-7-4 Potentially disqualifying civil and criminal records; advisory opinion; fee. This regulation will provide that conviction of a felony may disqualify an applicant from receiving a license. Civil records of a court judgement or settlement in which the applicant admitted or was found to have engaged in conduct that would constitute a violation of the technical professions statutes or regulations may not be used for more than five years to disqualify an applicant from licensure after the applicant has satisfied any judgement or restriction ordered by the court or agreed to in the settlement. An applicant may petition the board for an informal advisory opinion regarding if the civil or criminal record may disqualify the applicant from licensure. The proposed regulation is not anticipated to have any economic impact. 


K.A.R. 66-9-7 Education standard acceptable to the board for reciprocity applicants.
This regulation is revised to allow applicants for a license to practice architecture by reciprocity an alternate path to obtain licensure without obtaining certification from NCARB of educational qualifications. The proposed amendment minimizes the cost to individuals applying for licensure as an architect by reciprocity; the current fee for NCARB certification is $1,100.

K.A.R. 66-10-1 Architectural experience satisfactory to the board.  Effective June 29, 2016 NCARB renamed the “Intern Development Program” to the “Architectural Experience Program” and reduced the number of experience hours to 3,740. This regulation is revised to remove the reference to the “Intern Development Program” and align with nationally accepted guidelines which require 3,740 experience hours. The proposed amendment minimizes the cost to individuals applying for licensure as an architect by allowing individuals to be eligible for licensure earlier in their career.

K.A.R. 66-10-3 Architectural experience required of a reciprocity applicant. This regulation is revised to allow applicants for a license to practice architecture by reciprocity an alternate path to obtain licensure without obtaining certification from NCARB of experience qualifications. The proposed amendment minimizes the cost to individuals applying for licensure as an architect by reciprocity; the current fee for NCARB certification is $1,100.
