Please note that, as part of the agreement, formal academic qualifications must be acceptable to both institutions, in accordance with the Washington, Sydney or Dublin agreements. If academic qualifications are not acceptable under this agreement, the applicant may be invited to submit a competency demonstration report for evaluation. EA`s relationship with developing countries (particularly because of our situation in the Asia-Pacific region) has also enabled us to give something back to the profession by helping these countries become signatories to various multilateral agreements. If more countries participate in these agreements, our members will ultimately offer greater mobility opportunities, which is a significant benefit to members. The International Engineering Technologist Agreement was signed in 2003 by participating economies/countries. The parties agreed to begin the implementation of a system of mutual recognition of engineering technologies. Engineers Australia`s chartered professional engineers are automatically included in the APEC Engineers register as soon as they meet the following criteria: The APEC Engineers Register allows cross-border mobility for professional engineers in the APEC region, recognizing important engineering standards in these countries. Please note that the agreement may not apply to persons who have obtained the qualification or license with their original association through a mutual recognition agreement by third parties. Engineers Australia has mutual recognition agreements with institutions around the world where a member of such an organization is granted, upon request, an equivalent membership to Engineers Australia and vice versa. In some cases, the agreements cover more than one rank and one occupational category.
The International Professional Engineers agreement applies to the same standard of competency as the APEC Engineering Agreement, but any country/economy can join. Most of the contracting parties are engineering offices. Among the latest member-prepared and member-led publications include: Global Reach: supporting the professional mobility of Australian engineers, Water and Australian Cities: review of urban water reform, and Australia! s Energy Future: Australian energy policy and climate change.

Engineers Australia also hosts the World Federation of Engineering Organizations of the Convention of Global Engineers in 2019 (WEC2019). Dr Kanga has launched the bid to host the event in Melbourne in November 2019. This will be an important event for the learned society for engineers Australia during its 100th anniversary.
The event will include the WFEO General Assembly, which will bring engineers from around the world to Melbourne. For more information, please visit www.wec2019.org.au work in an increasingly global trade, it is important to know that you will be supported wherever your career takes you. International agreements allow you to recognize your skills and knowledge on a global scale, with more than 5,000 Australian member engineers working internationally. Your active membership in Engineers Australia (CPEng), The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (MHKIE), Engineers Ireland (CEng MIEI) or the Institute of Geologists of Ireland (PGeo) allows for a more flexible professional registration process for British Columbia engineers and geoscientists.
