A summary of currently proposed amended regulations and the economic impact of each follows. A public hearing will be held on April 16, 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. 66-9-7 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. 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. 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.
