What do you mean by "B&P code"? Could you site specific code sections? I am still trying to locate specific state requirements for where an SE must perform designs. Regarding high rises, it is my understanding that these requirements are in local codes such as for LA and San Francisco - is that true? But some people have claimed that a local municipality cannot require an SE beyond what the state requires - then how could LA require an SE for high rises? (I am out of state and do not have easy access to state and local codes - I tried accessing some codes on the web but I get an error when I try to view specific state law sections.)
