Like other states, New Jersey has specific rules and regulations when it comes to using engineering seals. You must understand all of these requirements to ensure your compliance when using a New Jersey engineering embosser. Here you will find out what you need to know about the engineering seal and the regulations to which it must conform.
New Jersey Engineer Seal Requirements for Professional Engineers
Each seal used in New Jersey must be 1 ½” in diameter. The seal is made up of two concentric circles, with a larger outer one around a smaller inner one. Between these two circles are the words “State of New Jersey” at the top, along with “Professional Engineer” along the bottom. Inside the small inner circle, the engineer’s name is at the top with the word “licensed” along the bottom. In the center of these words, the license number must be a straight line, with or without a prefix.
It is acceptable for New Jersey engineering embosser seals to be used without the prefix, but most seals do contain them. For those who have a dual license, the seal will appear the same, with the addition of “& Land Surveyor” after the professional engineer designation between the circles. The prefix for the professional engineer license number is "GE", the prefix for the dual license number is "GB", and for land surveyors, it is "GS"
Using a New Jersey Professional Engineer Stamp or Seal
There are also usage requirements in place for the proper application of the engineering seal. Unlike many other states, New Jersey does not allow the use of digital reproductions or rubber stamp-style seals. All seals must be affixed using a New Jersey engineering embosser. This seal is required on all reports, plans, descriptions, maps, certifications, and drawings for building and structure construction.
The seal is also required on all documents that require an engineer’s input or calculations. Use of the seal is only permitted on documents on which the engineer has worked to create. If multiple parties worked on a single document, the New Jersey engineering embosser must be used along with an explanation of what the engineer’s part of the document was.
Engineers are not permitted to use a seal if they did not oversee the work, or did not directly have anything to do with the creation of the document. Using a New Jersey engineering embosser denotes that the person affixing it has made certain that all calculations and information meet the requirements and codes for the project. The engineering seal, along with a signature, must be included on each page of any paper requiring it.
Staying in Compliance with the New Jersey State Board
Due to the strict requirements in New Jersey, licensed engineers must be familiar with and understand the requirements of using the appropriate seals. Failing to use only a New Jersey engineering embosser, rather than a rubber reproduction or a digital facsimile, could result in fines and other ramifications.
All newly licensed engineers need to ensure proper compliance by reading Title 13, Chapter 40 of the New Jersey Administrative Code, which will provide all relevant information about both New Jersey engineering embosser seals and title blocks on required documents.
