With almost 44,000 active licensed engineers in the state, the Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE) is committed to protecting the interest of public health and safety by properly regulating the practice of engineering.
The Florida Board of Professional Engineers is established under Chapter 471, Florida Statutes, Engineering, and is composed of 11 members, nine of whom are licensed Professional Engineers representing multiple disciplines and two laypersons who are not and never have been engineers or members of any closely related profession or occupation. All members are appointed by the governor for terms of four years each.
Under Section 471.038, F.S., administrative, investigative, and prosecutorial services are provided to the Florida Board of Professional Engineers by the Florida Engineers Management Corporation (FEMC). FEMC is a non-profit, single-purpose corporation that operates through a contract with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation.
