The Dublin Accord is an agreement for the international recognition of Engineering Technician qualifications.
In May 2002 the national engineering organisations of Ireland, the United Kingdom, South Africa and Canada signed an agreement mutually recognising the qualifications which underpin the granting of Engineering Technician titles in the four countries. The United States is scheduled to sign the Dublin Accord in June 2007. The accreditation body known as ABET will represent the United States initially but other accreditations may eventually join the accord. Operation of the Dublin Accord will be the same as for the Washington Accord and Sydney Accord
Each signatory has full rights of participation in the Accord.
