AAAA recently responded to the South Australian Government’s discussion paper that proposes to introduce a Professional Engineers Registration Scheme. While AAAA will support the introduction of schemes when a full cost-benefit analysis shows positive impacts, we oppose the potential expansion of this scheme to cover non-construction engineers with no justification. This extension would impose unnecessary financial burdens on businesses and creates barriers to the state government’s manufacturing and business goals. We will continue to keep members updated on any developments. You can read our response to the discussion paper HERE.
