The professional geologist license in New York State

New York State became the 32nd state to require that professional geologists be licensed to practice the profession in the state. Licensure assures the public that decisions regarding geological issues in New York will be made by qualified professionals. New York  agencies recognize the need to protect the public and ensure competency by requiring certain activities be performed by licensed professionals, including geologists. Given the geological issues in New York, there has never been a better time or stronger need to mandate the professional licensure of geologists to help protect New York's citizens, natural resources, and the environment.
