Our records indicate that the following companies’ Certificates of Authorization to offer professional engineering and/or surveying services in the state of Ohio expired on June 30, 2013 and that they did not contact the Board to advise they have ceased operating or are no longer in business.

Pursuant to Ohio R.C. section 4733.16, it is unlawful for any company that is not duly registered with the Board to practice, offer to practice, or hold out to the public as qualified to practice professional engineering and surveying in Ohio. Continuing to do so without renewing your Certificate of Authorization may lead to penalties under Ohio R.C. Chapter 4733.

If your company plans to continue to offer and provide engineering or surveying services, the Board must receive a renewal application and late fee immediately. Email Lisa Dodge at in order to request that a 2014 Certificate of Authorization Late Renewal Application be emailed to you.
