Maine Revised Statutes

§4904. Corporations, partnerships, associations and government agencies

This chapter does not prohibit one or more geologists or soil scientists from practicing through the medium of a sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation or government agency. In such partnership or corporation whose primary activity consists of geological services, or in a government agency in which geological work is done, at least one partner, officer or employee shall be a certified geologist. In such partnership or corporation whose primary activity consists of soil science services, or in a government agency in which soil science work is done, at least one partner, officer or employee shall be a certified soil scientist. In the case of an agency of State Government, the Bureau of Human Resources shall classify officers and employees under the Civil Service Law in a manner that ensures that at least one certified geologist or soil scientist shall work for each agency in which, as the case may be, geological or soil science work is done and that any officer or employee who is engaged in the practice of geology or soil science and who is uncertified works as a subordinate to a certified geologist or soil scientist, as the case may be, and does not have responsible charge of work or evaluation.
