Information on the NER

A guide to the National Engineering Register.

About the NER

Engineers Australia (EA) introduced a registration framework called the National Engineering Register (NER).

When you are listed on the NER it becomes a badge of professionalism, demonstrating professional recognition and public trust.

Engineers Australia’s National Engineering Register (NER) is the largest Engineering Register in the country delivering a uniform national benchmark standard of professionalism in the broadest areas of engineering practice, both general and special.

The NER is a publicly searchable database providing a national system of ‘registration’ for the engineering profession in Australia of professional engineers, engineering technologists and engineering associates in both the private and public sectors.

Join the NER now.

Why be registered on the NER?

  • You want to be recognised as being competent to practice independently.
  • You want recognition for your achievements.
  • You want to get a head start towards Chartered.
  • You need state registration (for Professional Engineers only.  Visit our Statutory Registration page for more information).

How to apply

NER is available to EA members and non-members.
