Occupational Regulation to MBIE

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is proposing the occupational regulation of engineers. It follows previous consultations in 2014 and 2019.

MBIE’s proposals could significantly alter the regulatory requirements of those working in engineering, and the public’s perception and trust of engineers.

ACE New Zealand worked with our members to understand the compliance costs and business and market implications of the proposals, to give MBIE an evidence-based perspective on the potential impacts of their proposals, particularly in terms of where the line for registration should sit.
