The engineering profession approached government in the 1960s to request legislation to regulate the profession. The result was that the South African Council for Professional Engineers (SACPE) was established in 1969.
Although this structure served the profession very well, it became clear that the changing world and the changing political dispensation in South Africa would necessitate substantial modifications. In 1992 SAICE approached SACPE to suggest a way forward in the new democratic dispensation that would be coming about in 1994. The main thrust was to ensure that South African engineering education and professional status would be recognised in subsequent years.
