Engineering and Land Surveying Laws

Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) 625 are the laws that regulate the profession of engineers and land surveyors. Nevada Administrative Code (NAC) 625 is the administrative regulations created to describe how an engineer or land surveyor complies with the law.  

Licensees are expected to know the laws and rules governing their professions and are expected to provide services in accordance with current regulations, codes, ordinances and recognized standards. When appropriate, the Board has the authority to discipline those individuals and firms (licensed and unlicensed) that offer and/or practice engineering in Nevada. The Board has the power to suspend, revoke, or refuse to issue, restore or renew a certificate of authorization for a firm, or a license for an individual, or place on probation, fine or reprimand any firm, professional engineer, or individual found guilty of violating Nevada engineering and land surveying laws and regulations.

The Board's compliance officer manages the complaint and disciplinary processes. For more information on complaints, click here.
