Shop drawings are not engineering drawings, nor are they engineering 
calculations.  Shop drawings are instructions to the shop on how to cut, 
drill, assemble, weld, etc., raw materials in the shop for transportation to 
the jobsite and subsequent erection.  Shop drawings are required to comply 
with engineering drawings and engineering calculations.

Engineering drawings and engineering calculations should be sealed by the 
engineer performing the design.
