"It is the opinion of the Board that the inspection and examination of single and multiple
family residential, commercial, industrial or institutional buildings, regarding their structural, electrical and mechanical subsystems for proper integrity or capacity, constitutes the practice of
engineering as defined in the "law." Any attempt to determine the structural integrity or capacity of a building, or any subsystem thereof, other than detection of problems by visual
inspection or normal operation of the user controls, constitutes the practice of engineering. This would include the diagnosis and analysis of problems with buildings and/or the design of remedial
actions. Therefore, an individual who advertises or practices in this area shall be registered as a Professional Engineer in the State of New York."
