The IEEE-USA Licensure and Registration Committee's (LRC) primary focus is on matters involving licensing of Professional Engineers and the impact that professional licensure has on IEEE members. The LRC also is continuously evaluating credentialing and how it relates to current PE examinations and available IEEE Society sponsored exams.
The Committee monitors and recommends changes in state law and provides important input to the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) concerning P.E. exam questions and format. The committee also disseminates information to those engineers who are licensed and those who plan to become licensed.
Committee members serve on exam writing committees of the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES), committees of the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE), and various state licensing boards.
