PE stamps in Idaho are regulated by the Idaho Board of Licensure of Professional Engineers and Professional Land Surveyors (IPELS Board) to ensure the authenticity and accountability of engineering work. In this blog post, we will summarize the key requirements for Idaho PE stamps.

Idaho Code Reference: The requirements for Idaho PE stamps are outlined in the Idaho Administrative Code (IDAPA). The specific section that covers PE stamps is:

  • IDAPA Seals

Stamp Size and Design – The Idaho PE stamp must meet the following size and design requirements:

SizeThe seal shall be between 1-5/8 inches and 2 inches in diameter.
DesignThe seal shall bear the licensee’s name, license number, and the legend “Professional Engineer,” “State of Idaho,” and “Licensed Professional Engineer.”

  2. Electronic Signatures: The use of electronic signatures and digital seals is permitted, provided they meet the requirements set forth by the IPELS Board.
  3. Out-of-State Licensees: PEs licensed in other states must obtain an Idaho PE license to practice engineering in Idaho and use the Idaho 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, Idaho PEs can ensure compliance with state regulations and maintain the integrity of their professional work. It is essential to stay informed about any updates or changes to the Idaho PE stamp requirements by regularly reviewing the IDAPA section mentioned above.
