How to Transfer your MME Engineering Register to Another Company

MME NewI have been ask on how do you transfer MME Engineering Register to another company many time in this blog but my answer always is ask your PRO. This is because even I change companies a couple of times, I am fortunate that these companies did the transfer for me. However this time I am involved in the transfer process so that I can share it with you all MME Registered Engineers and future MME accredited Engineers here in Qatar.

Here it goes step by step!

Step 1

Your company will fill up MME Form F-ECOP-22 or Amendment of Contact Data Form. Your Company/PRO should have this form. If not visit MME offices and ask for it. It is free.This should contain the following

  • Engineers Information
  • Previous company information and contact data
  • Present company information and contact data
  • Your Signature

MME Form F-ECOC-22

Step 2

Prepare all requirements documents to be submitted with the completed form as follows:

  • Photocopy of your QID
  • Photocopy of your MME ID
  • Original MME ID

Make sure that your QID has been transferred to your new sponsor.

Step 3

Submit documents to MME offices in West Bay. Ground floor back side of the building. MME will receive your documents and will ask you to come back after a week.

Step 4

Come back to MME offices after one week (at the day specified by the desk officer) and take your new MME ID transferred to your new employer. You need present your Original MME ID.

Step 5……. Submit a copy of your MME ID to your new employer and you’re done!

Additional important notes are as follows:

  • Make sure that your QID has been transferred to your new sponsor.
  • Note that MME accepts documents on Tuesday and Thursdays only.
  • No payment required the process is free.
  • You may receive a text message from Baladiya. Arabic text message saying that the transfer has been complete a few days after submission

Very easy and fast process indeed.

Are you an ASEAN Engineer?

ASEAN or Association of Southeast Asian Nations is a regional intergovernmental organization comprising ten Southeast Asian countries, which promotes intergovernmental cooperation and facilitates economic, political, security, military, educational, and sociocultural integration among its members and other Asian states. (Wikipedia).

ASEAN was established on 8 August 1967 in Bangkok by the five original member countries: Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand. Brunei Darussalam joined on 8 January 1984, Vietnam on 28 July 1995, Laos and Myanmar on 23 July 1997, and Cambodia on 30 April 1999.

If you are an engineer of the ASEAN member countries, you can register to become an ASEAN Engineer (AER) or an ASEAN Chartered Professional Engineer.

The governments of member countries of the Association of South East Asian Nations have agreed on the ASEAN Mutual Recognition Arrangement on Engineering Services with the following objectives:

  1. To facilitate mobility of engineering service professionals, and
  2. To exchange information in order to promote adoption of best practices on standards and qualifications.

The ASEAN Chartered Professional Engineer Coordinating Committee (ACPECC) established as an overseeing body at regional level and comprise of one appointed representative from each Monitoring Committee (MC) of the participating ASEAN Member States. ACPECC have the authority to confer and withdraw the title of ASEAN Chartered Professional Engineer (ACPE).

I encourage all ASEAN member Engineers especially expats to be registered and be recognized in the ASEAN and Global community.
