P.E. Board Announces Draft Rules Revision

The statute that regulates the licensed professional practice of engineering in Vermont went through a major re-write, which was adopted into law in 2014.  This was the first major updating of the statute since the late 1980’s.  Subsequently, the P.E. Board has drafted an update to the Rules that accompany the Statute.  These Rules are in draft form for public comment and can be found at:  https://www.sec.state.vt.us/professional-regulation/profession/engineering/statutes-rules.aspx .  The P.E. Board will hold at least one public hearing on the proposed Rules and also welcomes written comments.  Comments should be submitted to the Board through the Board Administrator, Kara Shangraw at kshangraw@sec.state.vt.us.  Later this year, the Rules will be submitted to the Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules (LCAR) for review and approval.  The Rules do not go into effect until approved by LCAR.  Most of the revisions clarify language and remove outdated or redundant sections of the existing Rules, however there is one significant change.  If the draft Rules are adopted as proposed, continuing education requirements will go into effect starting with the renewal period commencing on August 1, 2016.  We encourage all licensees to take the time to review the draft Rules and offer comment to the Board.  The recently updated Statute can be found at the same link.
