COA Renewal Notices have been sent and will expire on June 30, 2014.
Due to the implementation of the new eLicensing system, the Board will
no longer be mailing pocket licenses or providing wall certificates
for framing. Licenses will be e-mailed in a .pdf format.
Therefore, it is imperative that you keep the Board apprised of your current e-mail addresses and all contact information.
Renewal postcards will no longer be mailed and will also be e-mailed.
Thank you for your patience during this transition.
Notice - Candidates applying for the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination (FE) will need to apply to the Board for approval before registering with NCEES for the examination!!!
The State adopted the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act ("UETA") that allows state agencies to determine whether or not to give legal effect to electronic records. As a result of the ("UETA") the Board of Registration for Professional Engineers is offering guidance to its registrants regarding electronic signatures/seals. Registrants will be allowed to use electronic signatures/seals on submissions to governmental entities that accept electronic signatures/seals as allowed by UETA.
Registrants should use best practices when using electronic signatures/seals.
Registrants should review the feasibility of using encryption services to protect the integrity of the registrants' electronic signatures/seal.
Important Reminder to Registered Professional Engineers - Each entity that practices or offers to practice engineering in Rhode Island must hold a current Certificate of Authorization. This required "COA" is in addition to the individual's registration stamp. Check to make sure that your firm (whether sole proprietorship, corporation, partnership or LLC) has a current COA. Contact the Board of Examination and Registration of Professional Engineers with any questions.
