(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2020)
Display of license; seal.
(a) Every holder of a landscape architect license shall display his or her certificate of licensure in a conspicuous place in his or her principal office. A certificate of registration issued under this Act that is in good standing on the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 96th General Assembly shall be deemed to be a certificate of licensure and the Department shall not be required to issue a new certificate of licensure to replace it.
(b) Every landscape architect shall have a seal, approved by the Department and the Board, which shall contain the name of the landscape architect, the number of his or her license, and the legend "Landscape Architect, State of Illinois" and other words or figures as the Department deems necessary. Plans, specifications, and reports related to landscape architectural practice and prepared by the landscape architect, or under his or her supervision, shall be stamped with his or her seal when filed. Notwithstanding the requirements of this Section, an architect, land surveyor, professional engineer, or structural engineer shall be permitted to affix his or her professional seal or stamp to any plans, specifications, and reports prepared by or under his or her responsible control in connection with the incidental practice of landscape architecture.
(c) A landscape architect who endorses a document with his or her seal while his or her license is suspended, expired, or has been revoked, who has been placed on probation or inactive status, or who endorses a document that the landscape architect did not actually prepare or supervise the preparation of, is subject to the penalties prescribed in Section 18.1.
