A message from The Rules Review Commission:
In the 2013 legislative session, the General Assembly enacted session Law 2013-413. This law established G.S. § 150B-21.3A, “Periodic Review and Expiration of Existing Rules.” This statute requires the Rules Review Commission (“Commission”) to establish a process and schedule for those covered agencies to ensure compliance with the law. This schedule and process requires agencies to review all of their active rules codified in the NC Administrative Code (“the Code”) every 10 years. The Commission has begun implementation of this process. You may view the NC Board of Architecture Report here.
The Board is proposing amendments to six rules in 21 NCAC 02. All proposed administrative rules and notices of public hearings filed under G.S. 150B-21.2 must be published in the Register. The Rules have been published in the NC Register Volume 28, Issue 18 as of March 17, 2014. A hearing is scheduled for April 11, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. at 127 W. Hargett St. #304.

Happy New Year! Firm renewals were due by December 31, 2011 - Have you sent yours in yet?
The New Year will bring some changes to Continuing Education rules throughout the country. This is due in part to the NCARB Model Law changes that took place in June 2011. Many states have amended their laws to mirror the model law. As we previously indicated the NC rules also mirror the NCARB model law with some minor differences. At this time we don’t anticipate any major rule changes. If you are licensed in multiple states be sure to review the CE rules and laws for all the states to ensure compliance.
Firm license registrations will expire on December 31, 2011 unless the license is renewed. You may download a renewal form from the Board web site forms section. Questions regarding firm renewal should be directed to Tyler Barrick at firstname.lastname@example.org
