Sample Email


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- FE Candidates no longer need to apply to the Board prior to sitting for the FE exam.

Notice - Electronic Signatures/Seals

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.

Notice - Individual Professional Engineers Registration - Not Enough

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.
