The Pakistan Engineering Council (پاکستان انجینئرنگ کونسل‎); acronym PEC) is a professional body for accreditation of engineering education and regulation of engineering profession in Pakistan.[2][3] It was established in 1976 by the PEC act 1976.[4][3] The council also registers engineers and professional engineers and grants license to consulting and constructing/operating engineering firms working in Pakistan.


Pakistan Engineering Council represents the engineering community in the country and assists the Government of Pakistan at the federal and provincial levels.[3][5] It also acts as a think tank to the government and undertakes efforts to establish scientific standards for engineering innovations and services.[3] Its headquarters is located in Islamabad and regional/branch/liaison offices are located in main cities of Pakistan.[6] The council became a provisional member of Washington Accord in 2010 and was admitted as a full member in 2017.[7][3]
