      • Engineering Program Approval
        • A graduation program accredited by the Board of Engineering Accreditation (BEA) is considered to have met the academic qualification requirement.
        • A graduate of a foreign engineering program that is evaluated by the BEA and substantially equivalent to an accredited program is considered to have met the academic qualification requirement. The Council of Engineers (COE) would approve the substantial equivalent evaluation.
      • Washington Accord
        • The Washington Accord, signed in 1989, is an international agreement among bodies responsible for accrediting engineering degree programs. It recognizes the substantial equivalency of programs accredited by those bodies and recommends that graduates of programs accredited by any of the signatory bodies be recognized by the other bodies as having met the academic requirements for entry to the practice of engineering.

          • Introduction
          • There is an agreement in place between a number of APEC countries for the purposes of recognising "substantial equivalence" of professional competence in engineering. APEC countries can apply to become members of the agreement by demonstrating that they have in place systems which allow the competence of engineers to be assessed to the agreed international standard set by the APEC Engineer agreement.
          • Benefits
          • Registration on the IPEA(International Professional Engineers Agreement) register with APEC Engineer ensures that professional engineers have the opportunity to have their professional standing recognised within the APEC region thereby contributing to the globalisation of professional engineering services. This is of particular benefit to engineering firms that are providing services to other APEC economies but it also adds value to individuals who may wish, at some stage, to work in these economies.
          • An APEC Engineer is defined as a person who is recognised as a professional engineer within an APEC economy, and who has satisfied and operated in accordance with the criteria and procedures approved by Council of Engineers
          • APEC Engineer Requirements:
            • 1. completed an accredited or recognised engineering program, or assessed recognised equivalent;
            • 2. been assessed within their own economy as eligible for independent practice;
            • 3. gained a minimum of seven years practical experience since graduation;
            • 4. spent at least two years in responsible charge of significant engineering work;
            • 5. maintained their continuing professional development at a satisfactory level.
          • In addition all practitioners seeking registration as APEC Engineers must also agree to be:
            • 1. bound by the codes of professional conduct established and enforced by their home jurisdiction and by any other jurisdiction within which they practice;
            • 2. be held individually accountable for their actions, both through requirements imposed by the licensing or registering body in the jurisdictions in which they work and through legal processes.
          • Each practitioner included on the APEC Engineer Register may be identified with one or more recognised engineering disciplines which approved by the Council of Engineers (COE), within which that practitioner has been assessed as being eligible for independent practice by the COE's Monitoring Committee holding the Register.
