The Act introduces five areas of engineers for registration:

  • fire safety.

This will apply to engineers providing professional engineering services in and for Victoria.

Public consultation open

The consultation closed on 7 October 2020.

A suite of materials for public consultation included:

  • guidance material on key terms in the Act such as the meaning of professional engineering service, prescriptive standards, direct supervision and the five areas of engineering
  • the proposed Professional Engineers Registration (General, Exemption and Assessment Scheme Fees) Regulations 2019
  • the proposed Code of Conduct for Professional Engineers, and
  • options for setting fees for the registration and endorsement of professional engineers.

These materials were developed in consultation with a range of engineers, peak professional engineering bodies and the Victorian Government agencies involved in delivery of infrastructure and engineering services.

You can view these materials on Engage Victoria.
