  • disqualified from registration or have had your registration cancelled in Victoria or another state or territory

  • have been suspended under the Professional Engineers Registration Act 2019 or Commonwealth, state or territory law registering engineers to practise, and the reasons for that suspension
  • are or have been insolvent under administration or the officer of an externally administered company (see the definition of 'officer') under the Commonwealth Corporations Act 2001, and
  • have failed to comply with an order of a Victorian, Commonwealth, state or territory court or tribunal.
