Competition Assessment of the Land Surveyors Act

See the link below for the FTC’s Competition Assessment of Land Surveyors Act, which examines the process through which Land Surveyors are certified by the Land Surveyors Board.  It is alleged that the industry is suffering from entry restrictions which are negatively impacting its expansion.  The assessment outline 5 regulatory options and concluded that a combination of Option 2 (Revise the Training and Examination of Trainees) and Option 4 (Effective oversight of the Board’s activities) would generate the best economic outcomes (lower prices, higher quality) in the markets affected by the Land Surveyors Act.
