Indiana Natural Resources Commission

NRC > Soil Scientist Registration Board of Registration for Soil Scientists


The Indiana Board of Registration for Soil Scientists is the state agency responsible for the licensing and discipline of soil scientists. The Indiana General Assembly established the Board in 2001 through legislation codified at IC 25-31.5. The Board adopted rules to help administer its statutory responsibilities at 307 IAC. These became effective on September 28, 2003.

Administrative review (more commonly called "appeals") of decisions by the Board is performed by Administrative Law Judges for the Natural Resources Commission. 312 IAC 3-1 was amended in September 2002 to assist the Administrative Law Judges in performing their responsibilities for the Board.

The Indiana State Chemist at Purdue University performs many of the day-to-day functions of the Board of Registration for Soil Scientists.
