    If a building department is tempted to go beyond verifying that the design professionals license is current they should check with the state licensing board. It is not within the building departments authority to decide if the design professional was plan stamping or engaging in other improper licensing activity. If there is a concern that an individual is violating the state licensing laws the building department can always refer the concern to the state licensing board.

    As a plan reviewer/building inspector the first thing I do is verify with the state web site that the RDPs license is current and if it isn't I return everything along with a cover letter and copy of expired license. Can't tell you how many embarrassed RDPs I've had in almost twenty years.
