A new registration and licensing regime for engineers


The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) has announced that Cabinet has agreed to progress with a new regulatory regime for professional engineers. 

In order to be registered under the new regime, engineers will need to have a minimum qualification, and be subject to a code of ethics and continuing professional development requirements. 

Cabinet’s decisions have been made following a 2021 public consultation on proposed changes to the occupational regulation of engineers. MBIE received 250 submissions, predominately from the engineering profession. 84% of submitters agreed that there were grounds for intervention, and 81% agreed that all engineers should be subject to occupational regulation.
