§ 156. Fees
(a) The fee for an applicant for licensure as a professional engineer, professional land surveyor or professional geologist, including examination, and for examination or certification, or both, as an engineer-in-training or a surveyor-in-training, shall be as fixed by the board by regulation and shall be subject to review in accordance with the act of June 25, 1982 (P.L. 633, No. 181), known as the “Regulatory Review Act.”1 If the revenues generated by fees, fines and civil penalties imposed in accordance with the provisions of this act are not sufficient to match expenditures over a two-year period, the board shall increase those fees by regulation, subject to review in accordance with the “Regulatory Review Act,” such that the projected revenues will meet or exceed projected expenditures.
(b) If the Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs determines that the fees established by the board are inadequate to meet the minimum enforcement efforts required, then the bureau, after consultation with the board, shall increase the fees by regulation, subject to review in accordance with the “Regulatory Review Act,” such that adequate revenues are raised to meet the required enforcement effort.
(c) All persons now qualified and engaged in the practice of engineering, land surveying and geology, or who shall hereafter be licensed by the board, shall register, biennially, with the board and pay the fee for each biennial registration. All fees collected under the provisions of this act shall be received by the board and shall be paid into the Professional Licensure Augmentation Account.
