The Board's Authority

The Minnesota Board of AELSLAGID has been given jurisdiction over architects, professional engineers, land surveyors, landscape architects, professional geologists, professional soil scientists and certified interior designers on those matters covered by Minnesota Statutes 326.02-15 and Minnesota Rules Chapters 1800 and 1805. Its enforcement authority is described in Minnesota Statutes 326.111.

Information regarding possible violations comes to the attention of the Board through written complaints. Complaints may be filed by anyone. Complaints are not public information and may not be discussed with anyone except the Respondent (the subject of the investigation) and the Complainant. The Board is mandated to investigate all complaints within its authority.


The Complaint Committee

The Board Chair appoints five Board members to serve on the Board's Complaint Committee. No more than one member from each of the professions licensed or certified by the Board and no more than two public members may serve. The Committee meets approximately ten times a year. The Complaint Committee is supported by the staff investigator, the Board’s Executive Director, and the Minnesota Assistant Attorney General assigned to the Board.
