Design and the Professional Engineer
- Where public safety or legal liability are issues, it is generally necessary to have a Professional Engineer assume responsibility for the correctness of a design or results by signing or sealing a design document or report.
- Professional engineers are often required to seal the results of tests and measurements conducted on communications and control systems, especially where deficiencies in such systems could affect public safety.
- Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (formerly Industry Canada) currently requires Professional Engineers to sign or seal most licence applications concerning broadcasting or microwave systems that operate in licenced bands.
- Many clients now require that their consultants carry errors and omissions insurance. This is very difficult to obtain if one isn't registered as a Professional Engineer.
- RFP's (Requests for Proposal) and RFQ's (Requests for Quotations) for consulting services often stipulate that bidders be registered as Professional Engineers to be eligible for consideration. This is especially common for work done on behalf of a provincial government or another consulting firm.
- Because the Professional Engineer designation is awarded to those with documented experience in designing engineering solutions based upon established and accepted principles, many consultants feel that it gives them instant credibility with prospective clients.
- If you aren't certain whether you need to register, your manager or director will not hesitate to advise you!
