Professional Performance, Innovation and Risk (PPIR) is a change plan aimed at raising the status of professional engineers. At its core is the “PPIR Protocol“, a new performance standard for all professional engineers.

• its core aim is to promote excellence in engineering through application of the Protocol as the third leg of engineering professionalism (ethics, competency and performance);
• the Protocol clarifies widely accepted engineering practice in Australia against which the ‘duty and standard of care’ of engineers can be objectively assessed; and
• it provides a strategy for the engineering industry and profession to address the dramatic changes in the operating environment of engineers and raise the status of the professional engineer.

Further information on PPIR can be found at our website or by visiting our LinkedIn site at

The seminar will provide important information to all young and professional engineers on the development and application of PPIR, including the adoption of the PPIR Protocol into its business processes by one Melbourne-based company, Uhde Shedden.
