Registered Professional Engineers Queensland (RPEQ)

Queensland is currently the only Australian jurisdiction to apply regulatory registration for engineers. Being listed as a Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland (RPEQ) is a formal recognition of the qualification (or equivalent), experience and competency of an engineer. Only those who have been assessed in the occupational category of Professional Engineer are eligible to become RPEQ.

If you are a Chartered Professional Engineer (CPEng), you automatically qualify for a letter of assessment from Engineers Australia. You can download your letter of assessment from MyPortal.

If you are registered on the National Engineering Register (NER) in the occupational category of Professional Engineer, you also qualify for a letter of assessment. You can download your letter of assessment from MyPortal.

You will need your letter of assessment when making an application to become an RPEQ with the Board of Professional Engineers Queensland.

If you need further information, contact the Member Services Team at [email protected] or on +612 6270 6555 or Toll Free: 1300 653 113.

Member services are available Mon–Fri 8:30am–6pm AEST
