  3. Out-of-State Licensees: PEs licensed in other states must obtain a Florida PE license to practice engineering in Florida and use the Florida PE stamp on their documents.
  4. Stamp Ownership: The PE stamp is the property of the licensee and must be under their control. It is the licensee's responsibility to prevent unauthorized use of their stamp.
  5. Stamp Usage: The PE stamp should only be used on documents that have been prepared by the licensee or under their responsible charge. Misuse of the stamp may result in disciplinary action.

By adhering to these requirements, Florida PEs can ensure compliance with state regulations and maintain the integrity of their professional work.
