Check your RPEQ

Queensland’s engineering industry should be prepared for compliance audits and investigations into non-compliance with the Professional Engineers (PE) Act to be conducted.

The Building Industry Fairness (Security of Payment) and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2020 granted substantial new powers to the Board of PEQ under the PE Act that will come into effect from March 1.

The Queensland Crime and Corruption Commission also recently declared that the carrying out of unregistered professional engineering services could amount to corrupt conduct under its legislation in relation to government acceptance of engineering works.
