Before a company can offer or provide engineering or land surveying in Nevada it must register with this Board.   The company must employ a Nevada licensed professional before submitting a registration form.  

Every company, including sole proprietors and partnerships, doing business in the State of Nevada, must obtain a State Business License or Certificate of Exemption. If you are opening an engineering or land surveying business, please apply for a business license at Nevada's Business Portal, Silverflume. You can also renew your annual State Business License online using the portal.  

"Engineer" is a protected term.  If your company name includes engineer or any derivative of engineer, you need to submit a Corporate Name Request. After receiving an approval letter for your Corporate Name Request, you must include the letter with your filing of Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State. If your company does not offer engineering services or employ a Nevada licensed professional engineer, your Corporate Name Request will likely be denied.
