A licensee shall only use a seal during the time when such licensee has been issued a currently valid effective license issued by the Commissioner.

(4) A licensee may seal, or sign and seal, a verification or other document pertaining to a verification, provided such licensee shall prepare, and retain for a period of not less than six (6) years, records pertaining to such verification sufficient to reconstruct the basis for such verification including all alternatives considered. Such records shall clearly identify the project and the documents to which it relates, and the name of the person or organization for which the verification was conducted and the date of such verification.
