OVERVIEW & STATUTORY FUNCTIONS
to 1986 all professional engineers resident in the then South West Africa were
registered under the auspices of the Engineering Council of South Africa.
In 1986 when it became clear that there was a need to register engineers
in South West Africa the Engineering Council of Namibia (ECN) was formally
constituted by the Engineering Profession Act, 1986 (Act No. 18 of 1986).
The Engineering Profession Act, 1986, (Ref.:
Act No. 18 of 1986) was
promulgated on 11 August 1986 when the Engineering Council of Namibia was
established and came into force on 1 February 1987 after publishing this Act in
the Government Gazette. This Act
was amended in 1991 to suit the needs of the independent Namibia and is now
again under scrutiny to conform to the present requirements not only for
Namibia, but also for the global engineering environment.
