THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE
ENGINEERS ACT

With progressive liberalization the proposed amendments will meet the time line of
the AFAS threshold for foreign equity of 70% by 2015. The equity and composition
are prescribed in the Regulations which will allow the Minister the flexibility to
change it from time to time.

The proposed amendments to the Registration of Engineers Act has been approved
by the Minister of Works by October 2011.

The draft Bill was submitted by BEM to the Legal Advisor of Kementerian Kerja Raya
on the 25th. November 2011.

The draft Bill has been vetted by the Legal Advisor of Kementerian Kerja Raya and
subsequently submitted to the Attorney’s General office on the 30th. January 2012.

BEM is in the midst of operationalizing the Professional Competency Examination
(PCE) for the registration of “Professional Engineers with Practising Certificate”.

BEM is currently amending the Regulations in relation to the amended Act.
