Code of Practice
A Code of Practice is made by the Board for the guidance of Registered
Professional Engineers (RPEQs).
The objectives of this Code are to:
fulfil the requirements of section 108(1) of the Professional
Engineers Act 2002, which states that the Board of
Professional Engineers of Queensland must “make a code of
practice to provide guidance to registered professional engineers as to
appropriate professional conduct or practice”;
set out the minimum levels of professional conduct required to be met
by registered professional engineers in Queensland so that they can
carry out their roles within a framework of integrity, care for the
public, and competency; and
assist the Commercial and Consumer Tribunal in determining
“whether the registered professional engineer has behaved in a way
that constitutes unsatisfactory professional conduct, or practice”
(Professional Engineers Act 2002, s129).
The principles reflect the obligations under the
Professional Engineers Act 2002 that a registered professional
engineer in the practice of engineering in Queensland has
clients or employers; and
general professional obligations.
