What Constitutes Unprofessional Engineering Practice?

Monday, July 23, 2018

State engineering licensing laws require or authorize licensing boards, or other state authorities, to discipline licensed and unlicensed engineers when they take actions that constitute unprofessional behavior or conduct. These actions include negligence, signing or sealing plans not prepared by the licensee, and other violations. The enforcement of these improper practices and severity of the penalties vary by state, and now NSPE members have free access to all the relevant information in one comprehensive resource. The new report Violations and Enforcement of Engineering Licensing Laws provides the state-by-state details.
