Complaint Procedure

The North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors is charged with the responsibility of administering the provisions of the North Carolina Engineering and Land Surveying Act (G.S. 89C), which includes promoting the general welfare and protecting the public by safeguarding life, health and property.

In addition to evaluating candidates for licensure and administering examinations, the Board investigates alleged violations of provisions of the licensure law. Any person may submit evidence of unlawful practice of engineering or land surveying, or fraud, deceit, gross negligence, incompetence, misconduct or violations of the Board Rules against any individual licensee or any business holding a certificate of authorization.

In submitting a complaint, the Board requires that the complaint shall be in writing, shall be sworn to and notarized and shall contain such evidence as is available to substantiate the complaint.

An investigation of the complaint will be made and the matter will be carefully considered by the Board. If after investigation and review, the Board determines that a violation has been committed, appropriate action will be taken within the limits of G. S. 89C.

Matters of a boundary dispute or a failure to fulfill a contractual obligation are outside the jurisdiction of the Board and require legal resolution.
