It is the policy of the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) to urge its members to serve on committees appointed to develop new and recognized codes and standards and/or to develop revisions to existing codes and standards involving engineering principles to protect the public health, safety and welfare.

It is the further policy of NSPE that members serving on such committees encourage the adoption of language in international, national, regional, state and local building codes stating that “the plans and specifications shall be prepared by a licensed professional engineer and/or registered architect and shall bear the appropriate seals, signatures and dates required by law.”
