About the Board

osbeels logoThe Oregon State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying regulates the practice of engineering, land surveying, photogrammetric mapping, and water right examination as they relate to the welfare of the public in safeguarding life, health and property.
 
Established in 1919, the board is considered “semi-independent”. This status provides for a significant level of financial independence while maintaining accountability to the Governor for its performance. OSBEELS is self-funded and fully supported by its licensing and registration fees. 

The Governor-appointed Board consists of eleven volunteer members:
  • two members of the general public
  • two professional land surveyors
  • five professional engineers
  • one professional engineer and professional land surveyor (if a qualified individual is not available, the Governor may appoint either a registered professional engineer or a registered professional land surveyor)
  • one registered photogrammetrist (if a qualified individual is not available, the Governor may appoint either a registered professional engineer or a registered professional land surveyor)
