NCEES

National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES)


PS 31 Commissioning of Engineered Systems
"NCEES recognizes commissioning is a field of services provided to validate design concepts and systems operations. A variety of levels of professional expertise, using both licensed and unlicensed professionals, are used to deliver commissioning services.

It is the position of NCEES that commissioning of those systems that are engineered systems falls under the practice of engineering and must be performed under the responsible charge of a professional engineer."



NCEES Delegates Adopt Policy Statement

NCEES also adopted two position statements at the meeting. The first concerns evaluating the qualifications of licensure candidates who do not meet the requirements for Model Law Engineer or Surveyor status. The second states that the commissioning of engineered systems requires professional engineering expertise. 


 
NCEES task force studies building commissioning
 
This year, the Sustainable Building Design Task Force has been examining building commissioning as it relates to the practice of engineering. It is planning to present the position statement below for Council approval at the annual meeting in August. If the Council votes to accept the position statement, the task force will move that the Committee on Uniform Procedures and Legislative Guidelines be charged with incorporating the activity of “commissioning of engineered systems” into the definition of the practice of engineering included in Model Law Section 110.20 A.

Proposed position statement on commissioning of engineered systems
NCEES recognizes that commissioning is a field of services provided to validate design concepts and systems operations. A variety of levels of professional expertise, using both licensed and unlicensed professionals, is used to deliver commissioning services.

It is the position of NCEES that commissioning of those systems that are engineered systems falls under the practice of engineering and must be performed under the responsible charge of a professional engineer.
