With over 44,000 active licensed engineers in the state of Florida, 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 the Engineering Registration Law, Chapter 471, Florida Statutes, and is comprised 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.
The Florida Legislature found it necessary in the interest of public health and safety to regulate the practice of engineering in the state of Florida, creating Chapter 471, F.S., making the FBPE responsible for reviewing applications, administering exams, licensing qualified applicants, and regulating and enforcing the proper practice of engineering in the state.
