Default Non-FSA Supervisor for FA

Has anyone used someone other than an FSA as their supervisor? I work at a small firm (about 15 employees) and one is an FSA. He may be unavailable when I begin/submit my FA, so I'm curious if anyone else has experience and can give me guidance as to if anything extra is required if you don't have an FSA supervisor. I can ask an owner of the company who is not an actuary to be the supervisor as a backup.

I did look through the FAP FAQs and found this, but it doesn't say if anything extra is required if you're not using an FSA:

Q: Who can serve as my Final Assessment supervisor?
A: The supervisor must be an FSA (in good standing). If an FSA is not available, other acceptable designations would be: FCAS, FCIA, FFA, FIA, FIAA, FSPA. If no Fellow is available, a high-ranking member of management who is not able to sit for exams, such as Vice President of Human Resources, or a university professor may also serve.

Supervisors may not be a relative of the candidate or reside at the same address.

Supervisors do not have to be actuaries. I am working in a non-actuarial field. I used my manager who is an engineer and they did not seem to care. I did email to confirm it, though.

Thanks sarumi! I assumed it wouldn't be a problem, but I wanted to see if anyone could confirm
