The Minimum Standards of Land Surveying applied to all survey plats performed in Mississippi from 1991 to June 30, 2005 (Rule 21). On July 1, 2005, new standards became effective, the Standards of Practice (revised Rule 21). A third revision of Rule 21 became effective on August 1, 2015 and required a new checklist. A forth revision of Rule 21 became effective on April 15, 2017, however the changes were minor and did not require any update to the checklist.
Consequently, the Board utilizes three different checklists when evaluating survey plats for standards compliance. These checklists are being provided here for licensees who may wish to adapt them for use in their everyday practice.
