Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Professional Engineering Practice Act of 1989. In a provision concerning exemption from the Act for services performed by certain business organizations, provides that the exemption shall not extend to the design of infrastructure utility systems or manufacturing processes of the business organization. Removes the exemption for services, for private use, of contractors or owners in the construction of engineering works or the installation of equipment. Defines "address of record". Provides that the Department may further define "direct supervision/responsible charge" by rule. Changes the definition of "professional engineering practice" to include the recognition, measurement, evaluation and control of "control systems". Provides that the Secretary must simply notify the Board prior to the Department issuing any final decision or order that deviates from any report or recommendations of the Board relating to qualifications of applicants, disciplinary actions, or promulgation of rules (now, the Secretary is required to provide written notice and wait 30 days for the Board's written comments). Allows the Department to exercise the functions, powers, or duties enumerated to it by the Act without first requiring the action and report in writing of the Board. In a provision concerning the Board, limits term of service to 10 successive years(now, 15), prohibits public member from being an employee of an engineering related field (now, an employee of the State), and provides that members may receive compensation as determined by the Secretary (now, shall receive compensation when attending Board meetings or meetings approved by the Secretary). Provides that an engineer shall be responsible for his or her seal and signature as defined by rule (now, signatures generated by computer shall not be permitted). Provides that the Department may take disciplinary action against any person that commits certain tax violations. Provides that the Department shall deny a license or renewal to a person that has defaulted on an education loan or scholarship provided or guaranteed by the State. Provides that the Department or Board may order a licensee or applicant to submit to a mental or physical examination, or both, for certain violations of the Act. Makes other changes. Effective immediately.
