PE Stamping of P & ID's in Virginia

PE Stamping of P & ID's in Virginia

PE Stamping of P & ID's in Virginia

I'm working on the fire protection portion of a large Virginia project. I'm not a big proponent of preparing P & ID's for fire protection because other than possibly being visual tools, there is not much value to the fire protection engineer or designer doing the detailed design - especially for sprinkler system work. Another fire protection engineer, now retired, stamped fire protection P & ID's on a previous job for the same client, which were a collaboration of this fire protection engineer and a process engineering specialist (non PE). The Virginia engineering board laws/regulations and Virginia regulation 18 VAC 10-20-760 is not clear about whether or not P&ID's have to be stamped. It just says just says final drawings must be stamped. Does anyone know of another section in Virginia law that covers this?

Also, is there a regulation or law in Virginia that specifically states which discipline drawings and specs are actually required to be stamped - plumbing, fire protection, HVAC, fire alarm,utilities, etc?



RE: PE Stamping of P & ID's in Virginia

You need to contact the State Board of Engineers for this interpretation. This is an issue of licensing, and it varies by state and providence in North America.
