The Registration of Engineers Act 1967 had been amended and took effect on 31st July 2015. One of the major amendments under the Act is to introduce a two-tier system of registration of Professional Engineers. One class of Professional Engineers who will go through the existing system of passing PAE or for being a Corporate Member of the Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM). The other class is Professional Engineers with Practicing Certificates.
In order for a professional engineer to obtain the Practicing Certificate, he must sit and pass the Professional Competency Examination (PCE). In short with the amendment, the submitting person must now be a Professional Engineer with a valid Practicing Certificate registered with BEM. The main aim of the Professional Competency Examination is to ensure the competency of the Professional Engineer. The PCE will test the candidates within the limits of “professional engineering services” as defined by the Registration of Engineers Act 1967 in the engineering disciplines of civil & structural, mechanical and electrical engineering. The examination will test the candidate’s knowledge, experience and application of:
- Regulations and rules of engineering practice by BEM
- Statutory laws, design codes, regulations and
- Standards of professionalism and ethical behaviour imposed by BEM
The PCE comprises of 2 Parts - Part A is a common paper for all disciplines while Part B is meant for specific discipline. The syllabi that involve Law topics for Part A are:
- Laws and regulations governing the engineering profession in Malaysia
- Engineer’s responsibility to society and to the public
- Knowledge of laws having reference
- Knowledge of Contract
This short course will cover the above topics, with particular emphasis on legal and contractual issues.
