The Washington Accord

The Washington Accord is a constituent of the International Engineering Alliance (IEA) which comprises educational accords for professional engineers, engineering technologists, and engineering technicians plus two professional engineering and one engineering technologist competency agreements. The IEA is concerned with engineering education and competence across the whole spectrum of engineering.

The agreement creates the framework for the establishment of an international standard of competence for professional engineering and then empowers each member organisation to establish a section of the International Professional Engineers (IntPE) register.
