Engineers in the State of Kansas know that having their professional documents accepted by governments and businesses requires a Kansas professional engineer seal. Whether you are looking for a pocket seal, a heavy-duty embosser or a digital seal, read on to find out everything you need to know about obtaining the correct Kansas professional engineer seal for your needs!
Your Kansas professional engineer seal can be an embossing seal, stamp or even an electronically generated file (eSeal). There is a tight size range for the seal, with the outer circle of the seal required to be 1-⅝” in diameter and the inner circle no larger than 1-1/16” in diameter. The Kansas professional engineer seal is required to include an arc at the top between the two circles where the licensee’s name shall appear, with "PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER" below. For professional architects and landscape architects, the language “ARCHITECT" or "LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT" replaces “PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER”. The inner circle shall contain the words "LICENSED" at the top, and "KANSAS" below, and the number of the licensee in the center.
Usage of Your Kansas Professional Engineer Seal
The guidelines require that the licensee apply their Kansas professional engineer seal to the following documents:
- Technical reports
- Legal descriptions
- Original drawings
The licensee should add their handwritten signature and date across their Kansas professional engineer seal for the above document types. Any alterations to the above usage requirements will cause the Kansas professional engineer seal to be voided. Only projects exempt from the licensure requirements by law pursuant to K.S.A. 74-7031, K.S.A. 74-7032, K.S.A. 74-7033, K.S.A. 74-7034 or K.S.A. 74-7042, and subsequent amendments are excluded from the above qualifications.
Electronic Seal Usage
For electronic versions of the Kansas professional engineer seal to be accepted, the signature must be able to be verified and unique to the person who affixed it. In addition, the eSeal must be linked to an electronic document bearing the signature in such a way that alterations to the document cause an indication that the licensee’s mark is invalidated by the changes. Electronic seals with a white background or created in CAD programs need to be exported as GIF files in order to properly display your Kansas professional engineer seal in files without a white background.
