In fairness to the ASHRAE Code of Ethics, it was written to cover a diverse membership base consisting of far more than just consulting engineers who draw up building plans and specifications; whereas the NCEES
and NSPE codes are much more targeted to that specific community.
Currently, the NCEES
- model specifies that an aspiring PE must meet the following requirements to sit for the exam: hold a bachelor's degree in engineering from an ABET-accredited program, have at least four years of appropriate work experience, have passed the FE exam, and possess a clean disciplinary record.

model specifies that an aspiring PE must meet the following requirements: (1) hold a bachelor's degree in engineering from an ABET-accredited program, (2) have at least four years of appropriate work experience, (3) achieve acceptable results on the Fundamentals of Engineering exam and the PE exam, and (4) possess a clean disciplinary record.
Fundamentals of Engineering and Fundamentals of Surveying will be first NCEES

model is used by state licensing boards as they develop laws and rules within their jurisdictions.
She was the first woman engineer to be appointed to the Missouri Board for Architects, Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors and is the first woman to serve on the NCEES
structural exam committee.
Licensure in disciplines with relatively low numbers, such as agricultural engineering, will steadily decrease, and eventually disappear, due to the reduction in eligible candidates below the level that NCEES
requires to maintain a discipline's PE exam.
The former vendor of the NCEES
contract for the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam is ACT.
She worked diligently to coordinate communication between ASABE and NCEES
to maintain a professional licensure examination for the practice of agricultural engineering.
ASABE is joining a cooperative effort with NCEES
and biological-engineering-related societies in the development of a professional engineering (PE) exam in biological engineering.
