Standard design plans that were initially prepared and certified by an individual who is a licensed engineer in the state of origin of such plans (including North Carolina) may then be reviewed by a North Carolina Professional Engineer for code conformance, design adequacy, and site adaptation for the specific application within North Carolina.  The reviewing Professional Engineer who is licensed in North Carolina assumes responsibility for such standard designs.  Standard plans, which bear the seal of the original design engineer who is a licensed engineer in another state, or North Carolina, shall be sealed by the reviewing North Carolina Professional Engineer who is assuming responsibility.  In addition to the seal, a statement shall be included as follows:  "These plans have been properly examined by the undersigned.  I have determined that they comply with existing local North Carolina codes, and have been properly site adapted for use in this area."
