West Virginia State Board of
Registration for Professional Engineers
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. To ensure procedural due process, a copy of received and filed Complaint forms (and any attachments) will be provided to the individual or entity against whom the complaint is filed so they have ample opportunity to respond to the allegations. This complaint, any response and complaint-related materials are confidential while the matter is being investigated. Complaint files are not public records until the matter has been resolved. We ask for your cooperation in keeping this matter confidential while this complaint is pending.

Please note that action taken on complaints may result in a hearing which may require attendance of all involved parties to testify regarding the issues at hand.  Once the matter is resolved and the complaint is closed, this Complaint Form, responses and the resolution of the complaint will become a matter of public record.
