(1)  The board shall prescribe, by rule, a form of seal to be used by a registered landscape architect who holds a valid certificate of registration. Each registered landscape architect shall obtain an impression-type metal seal, and all plans, specifications, or reports prepared or issued by the registered landscape architect and filed for public record shall be signed by the registered landscape architect, dated, and stamped with her or his seal. The signature, date, and seal constitute evidence of the authenticity of that to which they are affixed.

If the certificate of the registered landscape architect is suspended for a period of time, her or his seal shall be returned to her or him upon expiration of the suspension period.

(3)  No registered landscape architect shall affix or permit to be affixed her or his seal or name to any plan, specification, drawing, or other document which was not prepared by her or him or under her or his responsible supervising control or which was not reviewed, approved, or modified, and adopted by her or him as her or his own work with full responsibility as a landscape architect for such documents.

(4)  Nothing in this part shall prohibit a registered landscape architect from filing plans of work defined under this part.
