           NCEES Council Record

The NCEES Council Record contains all supporting documentation such as transcripts, reference letters, etc. in one packet. An applicant only needs to complete certain sections of the appropriate application and note in the other sections that a Council Record will be forthcoming. 

A Council Record labeled as a “Model Law Engineer” will reduce the time to process the application, Board review will still be required.

The Council Record establishes a permanent record that may be updated yearly and facilitates interstate licensing. This Record of an engineer’s licensure credentials and history will be electronically transmitted to the New Mexico Board at your request. [You must request this through NCEES; we cannot do this for you.] If you do not already have an NCEES Council Record contact NCEES to establish one at: or by calling (800) 250-3196. However, keep in mind that New Mexico, as each Board, still retains authority over the licensure decision.
