Important information concerning RPEQ registration renewals for 2020/21
Under the Professional Engineers Act 2002 (Act) RPEQs are registered for a period of 12 months up until 30 June. RPEQs are required to renew their registration during the renewal period (1 April – 31 May).
Due to the uncertain situation caused by the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the Board of Professional Engineers of Queensland (BPEQ), in consultation with the Queensland Government, will postpone the registration renewal period. The revised dates for the renewal period are:
1 MAY 2020 – 30 JUNE 2020
Advice to manage the effects of COVID-19 on businesses is fast changing. BPEQ will continue to engage with the government about registration renewals and advise RPEQs of any changes to the renewal process.
In the meantime, BPEQ encourages all RPEQs to be renewal ready by updating their contact details.
RPEQs are also reminded that the category of Non-Practising is available for RPEQs who are not carrying out professional engineering services and do not need to be registered. Non-Practising allows RPEQs to keep their registration status and reduces the registration fee and continuing professional development hours. RPEQs are able to change their status from Non-Practising to Practising at any stage during the registration year.
BPEQ will keep customers and stakeholders updated on additional business continuity measures and operational changes.
Please contact BPEQ at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07 3210 3100 if you have any questions.
