Proposed fees for Engineers Registration Scheme

The Victorian Government has released a proposed set of fees for the Professional Engineers Registration Scheme and an associated Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) which commences on 1 July 2021.

This will progressively apply to different types of engineers as follows:

EngineerDate you must be registered by
Fire safety 1 December 2021
Civil 1 October 2022
Structural 1 October 2022
Electrical 1 June 2023
Mechanical 1 December 2023

National Policy and Government Relations Manager, Greg Forbes says HVIA has opposed the application of this legislation to engineers involved in the heavy vehicle industry.

“HVIA believes that our industry should be regulated nationally by the Department of Infrastructure and the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator.

“Inconsistent state based regulation of this sort only adds unnecessary costs to industry,” Mr Forbes said.

Comments on the proposed fees and RIS are open until 3 May 2021.
