Laws and Regulations Governing Florida Professional Engineers

The Florida Legislature enacted Statute Chapter 471 to regulate the practice of engineering and ensure the health, life, property, and safety of the public. The statute holds the Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE) responsible for reviewing applications, administering exams, licensing qualified applicants, and regulating and enforcing the proper practice of engineering in the state (FBPE, 2015). The FBPE is committed to delivering quality service including timely assistance, updated information, and a communication network to provide quality engineering that meets current regulations, codes, ordinances, and standards set forth in Statute 471.
