South Carolina State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers and Surveyors
How to File a Complaint
Allegations of misconduct, fraud, deceit, gross negligence and incompetence, unless dismissed by the Office of Investigations and Enforcements as unfounded, trivial or otherwise without merit, are investigated to determine whether or not a hearing is warranted.
Fee disputes and contractual disputes between registrant and client are civil matters and generally do not fall within the jurisdiction of this Board. Likewise, in surveying matters, property disputes are outside the Board’s jurisdiction and final arbitration of such rests with the court.
Complaints may be filed against licensed individuals and firms by submitting a complaint to the Office of Investigations and Enforcements specifying the allegation(s) and providing copies of documents and/or other evidence supporting the allegation(s).
The name, address and telephone number of the complainant is requested. Complaints may be resolved with formal disciplinary action or informally with appropriate warning or caution. Complainants are notified of final dispositions. Formal disciplinary actions are a matter of public record.
