Registration for professional engineers in Victoria phased in from 1 July, 2021

In Victoria registration is now mandatory for all professional engineers across the five areas of engineering (fire safety, civil, structural, electrical and mechanical). The Victorian Engineers Registration Scheme is a co-regulatory model where assessment is undertaken by an approved assessment entity prior to the engineer applying for registration with the Building Licensing Authority (BLA).

If you have not lodged your application for registration with the BLA, you must not provide professional engineering services until your application is approved by the BLA.

Professionals Australia (PA) is an approved assessment entity, authorised to undertake assessment for registration in Victoria for members and non- members in the following disciplines*:

  • Civil
  • Electrical
  • Mechanical
  • Structural

Please note that PA does not handle assessments for Building Endorsement of Fire Safety.

We offer several application types depending on your membership status with PA:
