Dated at Wellington this 11th day of October 2011.
The Common Seal of the Institution of Professional Engineers New Zealand Incorporated was affixed in the presence of:
Mr Stephen Reindler,
Dr Andrew Cleland,
This note is not part of the rules, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These rules amend the Chartered Professional Engineers of New Zealand Rules (No 2) 2002. Except for rule 20, these rules come into force on 1 January 2012. Rule 20 comes into force on 1 January 2013.
The main changes made in these rules are—
to amend the CPEng standard by making a change to the maximum allowable term until the next reassessment; and
to enable the Registration Authority to publicly notify the names of candidates for assessment and reassessment and invite comments from the public; and
to enable the greater use of modern technology in assessments and reassessments; and
to enable the Registration Authority to dispense with certain requirements for applicants who have previously been CPEng registered or have CPEng equivalence; and
to enable an alternative dispute resolution process to be used earlier in the complaints process; and
to change the application fee and the fee for extended assessment for continued registration to better match the costs involved; and
to change the annual registration fees to match the ongoing costs and recover start-up costs that have been borne until now by IPENZ members.
Date of notification in Gazette: 10 November 2011.
These rules are administered by the Institution of Professional Engineers New Zealand Incorporated.
