Explanatory note

This note is not part of the rules, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These rules, which come into force on 1 January 2006, amend the Chartered Professional Engineers of New Zealand Rules (No 2) 2002.

The main change is to the amounts of the fees for initial and continued registration. New fee amounts are set out in a new Schedule 2. In addition, these rules create a new way in which an assessment panel can evaluate an application to be registered as a chartered professional engineer.
