INTRODUCTION
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

Registration of Engineers Act 1967 in the engineering disciplines of civil & structural, mechanical and electrical
engineering.
The examination will test the candidates knowledge, experience and application of:

Regulations and rules of engineering practice by BEM


Statutory laws, design codes, regulations and
Standards of professionalism and ethical behavior 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:

1. Laws and regulations governing the engineering profession in Malaysia


2. Engineers responsibility to society and to the public
3. Knowledge of laws having reference
