Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying Bd. > Web site
The Oregon State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying (OSBEELS) regulates the practices of engineering, land surveying, photogrammetry, and certified water right examination in the state in order to safeguard the life, health and property of the public. OSBEELS sets standards of qualification for licensure to ensure that only individuals fully qualified by education, experience, and examination are granted the privilege to practice in Oregon. In addition, OSBEELS works to ensure that licensed practitioners maintain competency, reviews all relevant laws and rules and revises as needed, enforces laws and rules by investigating any complaints or information relating to statute violations, and informs licensees and the public about board goals and activities.
OSBEELS was established in 1919 and transitioned to semi-independent status in 1999. There are no tax dollars used for the board’s operation. Activities are supported entirely by fees received from applicants and licensees. OSBEELS currently regulates more than 25,000 licensed professionals.
OSBEELS is directed by an 11-member board appointed by the governor. The board-appointed administrator is responsible for leading and managing the board.
