Acknowledgement of Signatory & Provisional Status

We are proud to recognise these organisations for their recent achievements. It is our privilege to work alongside them to strengthen engineering education globally.


These organisations have either recently joined the IEA Educational Accords by becoming a provisional signatory or they have been recognised as having achieved status as a full signatory. 

This represents a significant achievement, on their part, and we celebrate the fact that we are working together to establish and benchmark the standards for engineering education internationally.

2014

Admission of New Signatories

Washington Accord

At its meeting on 13 June 2014 in Wellington, New Zealand, the Washington Accord admitted two accrediting agencies as signatories: The Institution of Engineers Sri Lanka (IESL) and the National Board of Accreditation (NBA), representing India.

In the case of the National Board of Accreditation (NBA), recognition of programmes by other signatories applies only to programmes accredited by NBA that are offered by education providers accepted by NBA as Tier 1 institutions.

Recognition of graduates of programmes accredited by any signatory by registering or licencing bodies in other signatory jurisdictions is subject to the following restriction. The graduate must have completed the programme: 

  • Later than the date of admission of the accrediting signatory; and
  • During the period of validity of the accreditation (which may have commenced prior to the date of admission). 

Recognition of graduates before the date of admission is not required under the Accord. Other signatories may, at their sole discretion, recognise graduates of accredited programmes from before the admission date.
