HandcuffsProfessional Engineers licensed in Florida who don’t report criminal convictions to the Florida Board of Professional Engineers may face disciplinary action against their license.

Section 455.277(1)(t), Florida Statutes, requires licensees to report in writing to the Board “within 30 days after the licensee is convicted or found guilty of, or entered a plea of nolo contendere or guilty to, regardless of adjudication, a crime in any jurisdiction.”

PEs must report their conviction to the Board’s lead investigator, Wendy Anderson, at wanderson@fbpe.org. The email must include your name, license number, the date of the conviction, what you were convicted of or the charge to which you pled guilty, along with the sentencing information (if that is available upon reporting).

If you have any questions, please contact the Board’s legal department at (850) 521-0500.
