All updates for this rule:

Classification for Land Surveyors

A classification study was conducted on land surveying businesses. It was determined that land surveyors report approximately 10 percent of the total hours for risk classification 4901; which also includes consulting engineers and geologists. Land surveyors file approximately 42 percent of the claims. This rule filing is necessary to ensure land surveying businesses reflect their degree of hazard. The changes were adopted 5/1/2013 and became effective on 7/1/2013.649.
