In 2001, the Association of Professional Engineers of Belize (APEB) was formed to support the development of the engineering profession in the country of Belize and assist in the development of national disciplines for the expansion of trade in the engineering sector. The Association of Professional Engineers of Belize (APEB) is a statutory self-regulatory body established through the Registered Professional Engineers Act in Chapter 326:03 of the Laws of Belize, which was last revised in the year 2003.
To ensure the provision of professional engineering services of the highest technical and ethical standards, for the benefit, protection and development of the Belizean Society.
To provide continuous development of an organization that will earn the respect of the community by providing exemplary services, applying the formal training and experience acquired to produce the best possible solution for clients at an affordable cost.
To accept responsibility for actions and decisions made and to deliver on what was promised. As an organization, to honor its legislated and financial obligations. To appraise performance based on meeting objectives within desired timeframes.
To demonstrate respect for staff, volunteers, applicants, registered members, and external stakeholders through fair practices and timely, informative communications. In turn, APEB expects that its regulatory obligations and activities in serving and protecting the public interest will be respected by its stakeholders.
To demonstrate alignment between the Professional Engineers (Registration) Act and its processes and practices, including consistency of its policies and their application to maintain integrity of the Registration.
To operate in a professional manner with its applicants, registered members, and external stakeholders, by demonstrating competence, impartiality, and reliability.
To achieve its goals through effective teamwork and collaborative partnerships both within the organization, between its staff and volunteers, and with other bodies involved in the practice of professional engineering.

Council expects of itself and its members ethical,
business-like and lawful conduct. This includes fiduciary responsibility, proper
use of authority and appropriate decorum when acting as Council members or as
external representatives of the Association. Council expects its members to treat
one another and staff members with respect, cooperation and a willingness to deal
openly on all matters.
APEB is committed to ensure that its operations and business will be conducted in an ethical and legal manner. Each participant (volunteer) is expected to be familiar with, and to adhere to, this code as a condition of their involvement in APEB business. Each participant shall conduct PEO business with honesty, integrity, and fairness and in accordance with the applicable laws. The Code of Conduct is intended to provide the terms and/or spirit upon which acceptable/unacceptable conduct is determined and addressed.
Note: APEB volunteers should meet the same obligations and standards regarding conduct when engaged in APEB activities as they are when engaged in business activities as professional engineers.
Consider the impact you can make by bringing your engineering, work and life experiences, and leadership to
weigh in on the policy decisions Council makes to continuously improve regulation of the practice of
engineering in an ever-growing Belize.
APEB seeks board members that reflect the diversity of the engineering profession in Belize and who can provide a balanced perspective and a problem-solving attitude to the discussions, and who are knowledgeable about board governance and respect the principles behind professional self-regulation.
You can run by filling out the nomination form once elections are announced and submitting it to the nominating committee by email.
Self-regulation of the engineering profession in Belize is a privilege - not a right.
By voting in the Council elections, you're doing your part to ensure that we, as professional engineers, are in a strong position to continue regulating our own profession to protect public safety and to promote the integrity and importance of professional engineering in Belize.
The Council shall uphold the Professional Engineer Act and respond to the evolving needs of its stakeholders.
The Council has identified a number of Committees it considers important to the proper implementation of the Engineers' Registration Act, # 16 of 2001. These are listed below with their scope of operations:
