Thank you for such a detailed answer.  I posed the question because, here in BC (Canada), Engineers who have to submit a Schedule B1 & B2 (which promises that the engineer will look into everything covered by the schedule) for any project, or part thereof, have to be careful that their scope of responsibility is clear to any third party that may become involved.  We can, by default, become responsible for the entire structure if we do not pay attention.  Does your assurance documentation have the same pitfall(s)?

Thor, as to the 88 UBC and Calif PE Act, the answer divides into two major
ways, but generally the answer to the question as you expressed it is NO.
