Changing your type of registration
You may change your type of registration from practising to non-practising, or vice versa, at any time.
There is no restriction on how long you can be registered as a non-practising professional engineer.
While you are registered as a non-practising professional engineer you cannot be endorsed to work in the building industry.
If you are registered and endorsed to work in the building industry and you change to a non-practising registration, your endorsement will be suspended by the Business Licensing Authority (BLA).
You must use myCAV to apply to change your type of registration. For more information, view About myCAV.
