The Board of Professional Engineers and
Land Surveyors, established by Chapter
752, Acts of 1939, consists of seven mem-
bers appointed by the Governor with the
advice of the Secretary of Licensing and
Regulation for five-year terms. Four mem-
bers must be professional engineers, one a
professional land surveyor, and two repre-
sent the general public. The engineers and
land surveyor may be selected from lists
of nominees recommended by the Maryland
Chapter of the American Society of Civil
Engineers, the American Society of Me-
chanical Engineers, the Institute of Elec-
trical and Electronic Engineers, the Ameri-
can Institute of Chemical Engineers and the
Maryland Society of Surveyors. Professional
Engineers, Professional Land Surveyors and
Property Line Surveyors wishing to practice
in the State of Maryland must apply to the
Board for a certificate, supplying with their
application evidence of their qualifications
both in experience and training. The Board
publishes annually a Roster which contains
the names of those authorized to practice as
Professional Engineers, Professional Land
Surveyors and Property Line Surveyors and
issues an annual report to the Secretary of
Licensing and Regulation. The Board is a
member of the National Council of State
Boards of Engineering Examiners, which
aids in the reciprocal licensing of engineers
and seeks to promote uniform standards of
licensing in all States.
Through the cooperation of the local
chapters of the engineering fraternities, the
Board seeks to secure voluntary compliance
with the law and the maintenance of the
ethical standards of the profession. However,
the Board has specific powers of enforce-
ment. These include the investigation of
charges as well as the hearing of complaints
of violations of the registration law, the
power to subpoena witnesses and the sub-
mission of documents or other pertinent
data, and the power to apply for relief by
injunction to enforce the provisions of the
law or to restrain any violation of it (Code
1957, 1969 Repl. Vol., 1975 Supp., Art.
Staff: None.

This Board was first established by Chap-
ter 719, Acts of 1900. Consisting of five
members, the Board is appointed by the
Governor, with the advice of the Secretary
of Licensing and Regulation. Three mem-
bers must be certified public accountants,
currently enrolled to practice as such. One
member must be a full-time college profes-
sor in the field of accounting at an accred-
ited institution and hold a Maryland certifi-
cate. One member must be a practicing
attorney at law. Each member serves a
three-year term.
The Board examines applicants for cer-
tificates as certified public accountants,
passes on applications by certified public
accountants of other states for reciprocal
certificates, and enrolls certified public ac-
countants and registered public accountants
and registered partnerships to practice pub-
lic accountancy in Maryland.
Examinations are held in May and No-
vember of each year. Certificates are issued
by the Board to those persons who pass the
examinations, or whose applications for re-
ciprocal certificates are approved. The Board
may for specified causes revoke or suspend
any such certificate, registration or enroll-
ment, after written notice to the holder and
reasonable opportunity for a hearing. The
1970 General Assembly updated the laws
which provided for the minimum educa-
tional requirements to not less than a bac-
calaureate degree with a major in account-
ing to become effective in July 1974. The
new law also gave the Board jurisdiction
over professional ethics (Code 1957, 1969
Repl. Vol., Art. 75A, sees. 1-23A).
Staff: None.
