Registration Authority

The Registration Authority is a branch of IPENZ, tasked with the certification and maintenance of the Chartered Professional Engineers programme. Not all engineers must be CPEng certified to practise and CPEng qualifications must be renewed every 6 years. This certification however is a prestigious recognition which recognises engineers who have thoroughly trained and maintain up to date knowledge and practice in a given discipline.
