REQUIREMENTS FOR ENGINEER SEALS

The Texas Engineering Practice Act, Section 1001.402, states that a public official of this state, or of a political subdivision of this state, who is responsible for enforcing laws, ordinances, codes or regulations that affect the practice of engineering may accept plans, specifications and other related documents only if those plans, specifications and other related documents were prepared by registered professional engineers, as evidenced by the seal of the engineer.

Section 1001.056 exempts the following from the provisions of the Act:

1.Any private dwelling, one story apartment buildings not exceeding eight units, two story apartment buildings not exceeding four units, garages or other structures pertinent to such buildings;

2.Private buildings used exclusively for farm, ranch or agricultural purposes, or used exclusively for storage of raw agricultural commodities; or

3.Other one story buildings, except public buildings, containing no clear span greater than 24 feet and having a floor area of 5000 square feet or less.

Section 1001.053 exempts the following public works from the provisions of the Act:

1.A public work that involves electrical or mechanical engineering, if the contemplated expense for the completed project is $8000.00 or less.

2.A public work that does not involve electrical or mechanical engineering, if the contemplated expense for the completed project is $20,000.00 or less.

Plans submitted for permits will require engineer seals in accordance with state law unless specifically exempt.

The Office of the Attorney General of the State of Texas has determined that the design of air conditioning systems that licensed air conditioning contractors are permitted to perform under the Air Conditioning Contractor License Law (Article 8861 of V.T.C.S), serves as an exception to the Engineering Practice Act (Article 3271a of V.T.C.S.).

Similarly, the design of electrical and plumbing systems that licensed electrical and plumbing contractors are permitted to perform serves as an exception to the Engineering Practice Act.

Appendix E of the Houston Adopted 2006 International Building Code as Amended specifies permit requirements for grading a lot of any size on private property. Section 1 - Identifies when a separate “Grading Permit” is required. Section 2 - Identifies the type of grading permit required, “Engineered Grading or Regular Grading”, when a “Geotechnical Report” is required in the plans, and when a “Storm Availability Letter” is required to be attached to the submittal documents.

Grading Permits are required for any excavations or fill, or combination thereof, and includes:

Excavation Permits - Including work proposing the mechanical removal of earth material.

________

(9)

Does the proposed fill obstruct any natural and/or previously constructed drainage course?

________

(10)
