Certificates of authorization
Education (EDN) CHAPTER 16, TITLE 8, ARTICLE 145
§ 7210. Certificates of authorization. 1. Domestic or foreign
professional service corporations, design professional service
corporations, professional service limited liability companies, foreign
professional service limited liability companies, registered limited
liability partnerships, New York registered foreign limited liability
partnerships, partnerships and joint enterprises specified in
subdivision four of section seventy-two hundred nine of this article,
provided each of the foregoing entities is authorized to provide
professional engineering, land surveying or professional geology
services and general business corporations authorized to provide
professional engineering or land surveying services pursuant to
subdivision six of section seventy-two hundred nine of this article may
offer to provide or provide professional engineering, land surveying or
professional geology services only after obtaining a certificate of
authorization from the department. Except as otherwise authorized by
statute, rule or regulation, other business entities are not authorized
to offer or provide professional engineering, land surveying or
professional geology services and may not obtain certificates of
authorization provided that nothing contained herein shall prohibit an
individual who is licensed to practice professional engineering, land
surveying or professional geology under this article from obtaining a
certificate of authorization upon application and payment of the
appropriate fees provided for under this section.

2. Upon application a certificate of authorization shall be issued by
the department to all individuals, corporations, limited liability
companies, limited liability partnerships, partnerships and joint
enterprises specified in subdivision one of this section and which are
authorized to provide professional engineering or land surveying
services and pay the appropriate fee.

3. A "certificate of authorization" shall authorize such individual,
corporation, limited liability company, limited liability partnership,
partnership or joint enterprise to provide professional engineering or
land surveying services for three years from the date of issuance
subject to, as otherwise prescribed by law, the supervision of the
regents of the university of the state of New York including the power
to discipline and impose penalties in the same manner and to the same
extent as is provided with respect to individuals and their licenses and
registration pursuant to this title.

4. An application, triennial renewal, delinquent or replacement
certificate fee must accompany the "certificate of authorization"
request in the amount shown below. A business entity that fails to renew
its certificate of authorization before the expiration date shall be
required to pay the additional delinquent fee for late filing of ten
dollars for each full month it has practiced after the expiration of its
certificate of authorization.

Application fee and first triennial certificate of authorization -

$125.00;

Triennial renewal fee - $75.00;

Delinquent fee - $10.00 per month of practice without a certificate of

authorization;

Replacement certificate fee - $10.00.

All checks shall be made payable to the state department of education,
state of New York and submitted to the department. If a business
enterprise is not eligible to receive a "certificate of authorization",
the fee will be retained to cover the costs of processing. Triennial
renewal fees for all "certificates of authorization" are due and payable
on or before the filing date of each triennial registration period.

5. The department shall compile a registry of the holders of all
certificates of authorization. Such registry shall include the name and
address of all registrants, state whether a certificate of authorization
has been issued, denied, suspended, or revoked, and disclose whether the
certificate is current or expired. Access to the registry shall be made
available electronically without cost. A record search of the registry
may be obtained in person or by mail provided that a fee of ten dollars
shall be paid for each putative registrant.
