in terms of Section 2(e). PEC shall ensure that the
responsibilities outsourced to the bodies are carried out in a fair,
equitable and responsible manner. The PEC retains the right to
withdraw any outsourced responsibility from a registered
professional engineering body if the circumstances so require.
f. Recording of CPD.
(1) Unless exempted in terms of these rules, all registered
engineers must, with effect from 1st January 2009, record
their CPD activities with EPDB in the following manner:

certificate/document issued by a professional
engineering body and shall be produced on demand.
(2) When recording CPD activities under sub-rule 7f (1), any
registered person who is registered in more than one
professional category must inform the EPDB regarding
category of registration which is most appropriate to
his/her area of practice, in which case the EPDB
evaluates the appropriateness of the CPD activities so
recorded in the context of the registration category
preferred by such person.
(3) CPD records will be checked and verified by EPDB
against requirement of CPD policy and supporting
documents provided. In case further clarification is
required, this information will be provided to EPDB or an
interview may be arranged at a mutually convenient time
and place. The verification may take the form of a
certificate/result/record of attendance with written
verification from the registered provider/institution of
CPD activity. In case the CPD record fails the
verification activity audit, recommendations for remedial
measures may be made. False claims shall be treated as
serious breach of ethics and invite disciplinary actions as
per the Act.

be reviewed by EPBD and decided on merit. Cases of
physical disability, serious illness or other extenuating
circumstances may be considered for exemption for an
appropriate period of time.
