How many of you have seen the website whereon a Pennsylvania P.E. is blantanly advertising “plan stamping” services? If you have not, after reading this message, point your browser to www.engineerapprovals.com. This website's service flies in the face of every engineering licensing law that I have ever encountered. Simply put, the laws generally state that seals should not be affixed to work that is not yours. The mere reviewing of another individual’s work does not constitute “responsible charge.” Responsible charge means that the work has been personally prepared by the engineer or prepared under his responsible supervision, direction and control. In my opinion, this individual is acting as if his P.E. seal is similar to a notary’s seal and that his professional services are merely a commodity. What is your opinion?
