In Australia, states and territories are responsible for statutory registration of engineers. Statutory registration ensures engineers meet professional conduct, education, training and competency standards. The registration requirements are different for each state and territory. Professional engineers must register in each jurisdiction where they plan to practise.
APER is administered by AIRAH and is designed to meet the requirements of the Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland (RPEQ), Business Licensing Authority (BLA) in Victoria, and other state- and territory-based schemes as they are released. Please review the APER Queensland and APER Victoria guidelines as there are slight differences in the requirements for professional engineers registration in each state.
