This is taken in
part from the Enforcement pages of the Oregon Examiner (the engineers board),
reproduced the engineer's stamp, modified the expiration date and submitted the
drawings to the city. These actions were taken without the knowledge or
permission of the engineer." $1000 penalty.
I thought the reason
we wet sealed, wet signed, wet dated and added the expiration date was to
prevent this kind of thing from happening?
It should be obvious
that if somebody wants to violate the system then they will do it. In the
meantime, all of the rest of us are penalized by having to put our wet biography
on each sheet of plans and calcs that we send out.
Am I the only one
who thinks that we are being picked on? Barbers need licenses, too but
when was the last time that your barber signed, sealed and dated your
receipt? What about your doctor? Dentist?
I know, I
know. I'm whining. But it's Friday, right?
