Enforcement / Disciplinary Actions

The West Virginia State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers is charged with the responsibility of administering the provisions of the West Virginia State Registration Law for Professional Engineers (WV Code Chapter 30, Article 13 and Title 7 of the Legislative Rule – Series 1-2). In order to safeguard life, health and property and to promote public welfare, the practice of engineering in this state is hereby declared subject to regulation in the public interest.

In addition to evaluating candidates for licensure and examinations, the Board investigates allegations of misconduct, fraud, deceit, negligence and incompetence, unless dismissed by the Board as unfounded, trivial or otherwise without merit. The Board will determine whether or not a hearing is warranted for any individual licensee or any corporation holding a certificate of authorization.


Complaints may be filed against individuals and firms by submitting a completed Complaint form, see below, to the Board specifying the allegation(s) and providing copies of documents and/or other evidence supporting the allegation(s). All Complaints must be verified by the Complainant before a notary public.

Complaint procedures will be in accordance with WV Code Chapter 30, Article 13 and Title 7 of the Legislative Rule - Section 2.
