Engineers in Mississippi are required to follow specific rules and regulations to ensure compliance within the state. One of these requirements is that each engineer must have an official seal that must be used on any surveying documents, reports, drawings, and other types of engineering plans that he or she prepares. It is important to understand the requirements and regulations of this seal when doing business throughout Mississippi.
Mississippi Engineer Seal Requirements
There are a number of requirements that must be followed for each Mississippi engineering impression seal. While licensees have the option of using either an embossing style seal or a rubber stamp, the seal must meet the following requirements, regardless of its form. Any stamps that are used for sealing engineer-related paperwork must be identical to the embossing seal in design, content, and size to ensure compliance.
Size and Shape of the Mississippi Professional Engineer Stamp
Among the requirements for the State of Mississippi, an engineering seal is that it must be a circular seal that is either 1 5/8” or 2” in diameter. There are essentially two different seal options available:
State of Mississippi Dual License Land Surveyor and Profesional Engineer Seal
This seal, which is available in either 1 5/8” or 2” diameters, includes both surveyor and engineer designations as well as the PE and PS prefixes before the license numbers.
Mississippi Professional Engineer Seal – This seal is 1 5/8” in diameter and includes the engineer designation and license number for the state of Mississippi.
How should my name appear?
Mississippi does not require engineers to use their full legal name on their seals. The name that is used in your daily practice is acceptable for use, providing that all other requirements are met.
Formats accepted by the Mississippi State Board
Mississippi engineering impression seals are available in embossing, stamping and digital formats. Engineers are free to use whichever format works best for their individual practices, providing that the design, content, and size of each option contains the proper information and meets the requirements set forth by the state.
Using the Mississippi Engineering Seal
Engineering licensees in Mississippi are required by law to use a Mississippi engineering impression seal on all documents created. The seal, along with the date prepared and signature, must be included on all charts, plats, reports, maps, and other documents prepared by or under the direct supervision of the engineer. The use of the seal constitutes that the engineer not only assumes responsibility for the prepared documents but also that he or she has fully coordinated them and that they meet the codes and requirements under Mississippi law.
It is recommended that the Mississippi engineering impression seal only be used on completed, final documents. If the seal is required on a preliminary document, additional language stating that the document is preliminary must be included. For reports and documents that include more than a single sheet, engineers can use the Mississippi engineering impression seal on the index or title sheet rather than each page in the document. Each time the seal is used, it must include the date and signature of the engineer.
The Mississippi engineering impression seal is an important consideration for engineers to ensure full compliance. If you need additional information, make sure to visit the Mississippi Board of Licensure for Professional Engineers and Surveyors website.
