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:
|Engineer||Date 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.
