For one to practice as an engineer in Kenya, one is required by law to register with the Engineers Board of Kenya (EBK). This applies to both Kenyan citizens and foreign nationals as well. The registration provides an assurance to the public that one is adequately skilled to take the responsibilities that come with making engineering decisions. The Engineers Board of Kenya (EBK) is a statutory body established under Section 3(1) of the Engineers Act 2011.
The Board has the overall mandate of developing and regulating engineering practice in Kenya; regulating standards in the engineering profession and building capacity for individual engineers and engineering firms. The Board also registers engineers and engineering firms and regulates their conduct for improved performance of the engineering profession. Engineers are registered in different categories which include graduate engineer, professional engineer, consulting engineer and accredited checker.
