During the NCSEA 19th Annual Conference held in Oklahoma City, October 20‐22, the Member
Organization Representatives in attendance discussed and unanimously approved the NCSEA Policy on
Separate Structural Engineering Licensure. The Policy encourages all jurisdictions to adopt legislation
that defines the practice of structural engineering and restricts it to those who have demonstrated
competence by licensure as a Structural Engineer. The Policy supports the use of the NCEES 16‐hour
examination and the NCEES Model Law Structural Engineer as the basis for licensure of Structural
Engineers. Within the Policy, NCSEA also encourages equitable transitioning of engineers currently
practicing structural engineering.
