Laws and Rules Update for Florida PEs
Chapter 61G15-34 of the Florida Administrative Code that relates to “responsibility rules” for mechanical engineers. The responsibility rules are found in Chapters 61G15-30 through 61G15-36, F.A.C.
These rules help in identifying and maintaining a minimum standard of care. They eliminate the question of what a “reasonable professional” would do and will help with the avoidance of disciplinary actions. As a florida professional engineer, it is important to know what these minimum standards are as failure to comply with these responsibility rules may be considered non compliance and can result in disciplinary action. The remainder of these responsibility rules can be found at: http://fbpe.org/legal/statutes-and-rules/
Ethical Professional Obligations for Florida PEs
This course will present essential principles from the 2019 Publication of the National Society of Professional Engineers’ (NSPE) Code of Ethics for Engineers. The NSPE Code of Ethics for Engineers was selected for its broad scope which can be applied to all fields of engineering from electrical to mechanical to chemical. If licensees would like to read the full Code of Ethics for Engineers, this document can be found on the NSPE’s website: https://www.nspe.org/
While this course will provide engineers with a proper review of ethical practice, it is ultimately the responsibility of every engineer who practices this profession to apply these principles to their daily work. Engineers must hold themselves to the highest ethical standard in order to protect their profession and do honor to themselves. Furthermore, abiding by a high standard of ethics does honor to fellow engineers and protects the welfare of the general public. When an engineer violates the standards of ethical practice, there are consequences which go beyond tarnishing the engineer’s reputation. The law also punishes those who do not abide by these principles.
