Do you have a complaint regarding a particular engineer? Do you suspect a PE has committed negligence in engineering or not complied with the Board’s Rules governing the practice of engineering? If so, please contact the Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE) or the Florida Engineers Management Corporation (FEMC) at (850) 521-0500.
When you call the FBPE or FEMC, you will be transferred to our investigator. This is where the investigative process begins. The investigator will take down the specifics of your complaint as well as any and all information that you can provide. You will be provided with a Uniform Complaint Form which must be filled out and mailed back to the FBPE or FEMC along with any supporting documentation you may have. The information contained on this form will be analyzed and, if determined to be legally sufficient to begin an investigation, will be assigned a case number. Generally speaking, a complaint is legally sufficient to justify
the initiation of an investigation if it meets two tests. First, it must allege a violation of statutes or rules over which the FBPE has jurisdiction to act, and, second, it must set out sufficient specific verifiable facts underlying the allegations so as to allow FEMC, which acts on behalf of the FBPE, to determine that a violation of those statutes or rules may have occurred and that an investigation is warranted; supposition or surmise are not sufficient. Nearly every complaint received is forwarded to a FEMC consultant for pre- review. Upon receipt of the pre-review opinion, the complaint is reviewed by the prosecuting attorney. If it is determined the complaint is not legally sufficient, it will be dismissed at this point. If legal sufficiency is found, the complaint will be fully investigated.
