The online public register provides public access to information about professional engineers registered and endorsed in Victoria.

The information contained in the online public register is a partial extract of the Register of Professional Engineers.

Register of Professional Engineers

For each professional engineer, the Business Licensing Authority (BLA) must record in the register:

  • their full name and registration number
  • their address for service of documents, information and notices
  • the area or areas of engineering in which they are registered
  • whether their registration is endorsed
  • the date on which their application for registration and endorsement, if any, was granted
  • the date on which their application for renewal of registration and endorsement, if any, was granted
  • the expiry date of their registration and the endorsement of their registration, if any
  • if applicable, the date on which their registration or endorsement of their registration, if any, was cancelled
  • details on any conditions on their registration or endorsement of their registration, if any, and
  • details of any court or Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) order affecting their registration and endorsement of their registration, if any.

A full copy or an extract of this information is available from the Registrar of the BLA for a fee. For more information, use the BLA enquiry form or call 1300 13 54 52. Calling this number costs the same as a local call. Additional charges may apply if you are calling from overseas, on a mobile or payphone.

Disclaimer

The register and the online public register are only as accurate as the information provided. The BLA tries to obtain accurate and up-to-date information during and after the registration process.

There may be a short delay between when the BLA receives information and when you can see it in the registers.

Decisions may be reviewed

Many BLA decisions can be reviewed by VCAT. You can apply to VCAT to review a relevant BLA decision within 28 days of the date of the decision.

The Register of Professional Engineers and the online public register reflect the BLA decision pending the outcome of the review, unless VCAT suspends the BLA decision until the end of the review proceedings.

If you wish to use information from the registers in legal proceedings, obtain a certified extract by sending the BLA a request using the BLA enquiry form.

Fees may apply.

The BLA will not release information for use in direct marketing or similar commercial activities. For more information, send the BLA a request using the BLA enquiry form.
