These registration workshops serve to share information on the Registration process thoroughly from Candidacy to Professional. These presentations are given to Learning Institutions, Government Institutions/Organisations as well Engineering Companies and are a part of ECSA’s key aim to disseminate engineering registration information.
Registration with ECSA is paramount to reaping not only individual but organisational benefits as well:
- Peer Recognition of Qualifications and Experience
Being recognized by ECSA ensures that the minimum requirements expected of a Professional in the engineering profession are met
- Public Confidence in Professional Competence
Professional recognition instills a sense of confidence and assurance that a Professional’s competence has been assessed by other professionals, who are knowledgeable in their field of expertise.
- Membership of Professional Societies
Professionals who are in good standing with recognized ECSA voluntary associations enjoy certain discounts. Benefits can be attained from this “dual membership with ECSA and VAs”

- International Recognition
ECSA is a co-signatory of the Washington, Sydney and Dublin Accords where the registering bodies in various participating countries recognize each other’s accredited tertiary qualifications in engineering. This confirms that South Africa’s academic qualifications are internationally recognised, allowing professionally registered members to work internationally.
- Statutory Empowerment
Registration with ECSA serves as a safeguard against poor engineering practices, in the interest of the public.
