Delegated Design and the Role of the Designer of Record

It is common for the engineer of record (EOR) to delegate design responsibility for aspects of the project to a specialty engineer or for specific products to the product manufacturer’s engineer. This presentation will discuss the roles and responsibilities between the EOR and specialty engineer or a specific product engineer. This session will discuss the overlapping areas of responsibilities and the areas where gaps often occur. The IBC gives general direction and key aspects to follow. This presentation will discuss ways to clearly establish roles and responsibilities of each and how to denote these roles and responsibilities.
