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 the standards becomes effective on August 1, 2015, again revising Rule 21.
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.
