RE: CA Plans Stamping

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The primary question is who is making the important technical design
decisions and is taking responsibility for the completed work product?
It is acceptable for the responsible professional engineer to use
another registered engineer to assist in developing the design.  But it
is not appropriate to seal drawings if not directly involved in their
development via decision making and final review.

	Subject: CA Plans Stamping
	I am newly licensed as a PE in CA. Reading through the Board
Rules and PE Act it is apparent that as a licensed engineer you are
obligated to stamp all plans and calcs (for submittal) prepared by you.
My boss does not think this is the case and thinks he can continue to
stamp documents prepared by me. The reason he wants to do this seems to
be an insurance ( rather an increase in the cost of insurance) issue.
	Any response in appreciated.
	Jason Atwood, P.E.
