Professional Engineers Registration Bill 2019


The Victorian Government made a commitment to work with relevant stakeholders on the introduction of a mandatory, statutory registration scheme, and work with other jurisdictions to develop a nationally consistent registration scheme for engineers.

During the development of the scheme, the Department of Treasury and Finance has consulted the engineering profession, industry stakeholders and across the public sector through stakeholder meetings, roundtable discussions and the release of a public consultation paper.

The consultation process has provided valuable feedback and informed key design aspects of the proposed registration scheme.

The Professional Engineers Registration Bill 2019 is currently being considered by the Victorian Parliament.

There will be further consultation on a number of important elements of the scheme, which will be subject to a regulatory impact statement (RIS). Public consultation and a public RIS process will commence after the Bill passes the Upper House.
