Design Certification to Mitigate Risk
REDI engineers hold engineering licenses from various state licensing boards. Over a century ago, anyone could work as an engineer without proof of competency. In 1907 Wyoming enacted the first engineering licensure law. Today every state regulates the practice of engineering and only Professional Engineers (PEs) have the authority to sign and seal engineering plans and offer their services to the public. Licensure as a PE is a legal requirement for engineers who are in responsible charge of work.
REDI offers PE certification (Design Certification) of new or existing designs for compliance with State or Federal regulation or legislation. We mitigate risk for our client’s piece of mind.

What Requires Certification
Often reporting to an authority is not required except when an incident occurs and becomes investigated. Once an intendent occurs, authorities may require proof of compliance with relevant standards or regulations. Documentation must show that equipment or machinery was certified by a competent, licensed, qualified person. Examples for certification include some of the following:
- Pressure equipment
- Lifting equipment
- Hoists and winches
Even when no standard exists for equipment or machinery, certification can be done in order to reduce risk or satisfy end-user acceptance. If equipment or machinery poses a life or safety hazard, REDI can offer advice.
