The Guam Board of Registration for Professional Engineers, Architects and Land Surveyors was created under the Guam Law in August 1960 to protect the life, health, and property and to promote the public welfare.


All states, jurisdictions, and territories of the United States have established engineering, architecture, landscape architecture and land surveying Boards. Guam Board carries out this mission through the regulation of the practice of these professions by:

  • Ensuring that those entering the practice meet minimum standards of competency by way of education, experience and examination;
  • Requiring that any person or firms practicing or offering to practice engineering, architecture, landscape architecture, land surveying and construction management services be licensed;
  • Establishing standards of practice for those licensed to practice; and
  • Enforcing the laws, codes, and standards governing engineering, architecture, landscape architecture and land surveying practices in a fair and professional manner.
