National Engineering Register

As the peak body of the engineering profession, Engineers Australia recognises that it has a profound responsibility to take positive steps to promote and enhance professional practices. In this context, the National Engineering Register (NER) is a register created by Engineers Australia to give visibility to those registered engineers of their services to the public, private industry and governments, as well as to provide assurance to consumers that the engineers they engage meet the high standards of professionalism expected of any profession.

The NER will allow consumers of engineering services to search for a qualified engineering professional by name, area of practice and geographic location. The NER replaces the National Professional Engineering Register (NPER), the National Engineering Technologists Register (NETR) and the National Engineering Associates Register (NEAR).

The NER is accessible to all eligible members and non-members of Engineers Australia.

Registrants on the NER will be able to confirm the following eligibilty criteria:

  • a recognised qualification
  • relevant professional practice
  • currency of continuing professional development (CPD)
  • the benefit of Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII)
  • a committment to ethical practice
