Suggested addition to proposed regulation
Add a paragraph similar to other programs that address using reports/work that becomes public information once submitted to a Federal or State agency:
A licensee who relies on information in US Army Corps of Engineers, VA Department of Environmental Quality, Virginia Marine Resources Commission files or has received permission to modify or otherwise utilize the evaluation, design, drawings, or work of another licensee pursuant to subsection E of this section or this subsection may certify that work only after a thorough review of the evaluation, design, drawings or work and after he
determines that he is willing to assume full responsibility for all design, drawings, or work on which he relies for his opinion. 
Certified wetland professional is a voluntary program. This regulation is overreaching for a certification program.
