Simple update to IEM Members or those who are practicing Engineering in MALAYSIA...
The Registration of Engineers Act, 1967 (i.e REA’67 or the Act) has a shelf life of more than 40 years. The Board of Engineers, Malaysia (BEM) was operationalised on the 23rd Aug, 1972 to implement the REA’67. The Act in its original form regulated the natural persons; the Malaysian engineers. Since the BEM came into being, the REA’67 has been amended four (4) times to suit prevailing circumstances, and we now have; registered engineers and ECP’s, Accredited Checkers, etc. Beside the REA’67, we also have the companion “1990 Regulation (2003)”; BEM Guides, and other BEM requirements-all these adding up to what can be described as “Measures” of the Malaysian PRA (i.e. the Professional Regulatory Authority”) over the practice of engineering in the country. Many Malaysian engineers believe that Malaysia needs an act which is suitable for the 21st Century. The IEM being the principle Advocate of the Malaysian Engineering Community, also think so. Accordingly, to get stake-holders’ inputs, a forum on “A New Engineers Act” is hereby proposed.
