Who should Register?
Any person who is academically qualified as an engineer and wishes to practice his profession in Zambia must apply to the Engineers’ Registration Board for registration. Such a person should also meet the requirements given below.

Any company engaged in engineering works in Zambia must register to practice in Zambia.

According to the act, a person shall be eligible to be registered as practicing engineer in Zambia if:

  • He or she is a fellow or member of the Engineering Institution of Zambia; and
  • He or she is resident or has an established office or appointment in Zambia as an engineer; and
  • He or she pays a prescribed fee.


  • Has two or more registered engineers standing for the firm
  • Is registered engineering company in Zambia or wants to practice engineering in Zambia.
  • Pays prescribed fee

Candidates applying for registration should submit the following:

  • Completed and signed application form prescribed by the Board.
  • Copy of EIZ membership certificate.
  • Two passport-size photographs.

A non-refundable application fee shall accompany all applications. Applicants should enclose only crossed cheques or mail orders made payable to the Engineers’ Registration Board. Successful applicants will be required to pay an annual registration fee as determined by the Board.

Every year-end around October/November, notices are sent out to engineers and companies reminding them to renew their registration for the following year. A Board meeting in December considers these applications and certificates are issued early in the new year. There is a renewal fee payable to the Engineers Registration Board. The current amount is K150,000 for individuals and appropriate fee from the table above for engineering firms.

The Board may not sit to consider renewal applications after the December meeting. In any case late renewals attract a penalty charge to be determined by the board, depending on prevailing circumstances.
