Bangladesh Professional Engineers Registration Board
Institution of Engineers Pakistan was established in 1948 in Dhaka and was registered with the Registrar of joint stock companies under the Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860. After the independence of Bangladesh, the institution was renamed as Institution of Engineers Bangladesh (IEB) on 12th March 1972.

In order to regulate the engineering profession and matters related therewith as well as the development of the profession of engineers IEB formed Bangladesh Professional Engineers Registration Board (BPERB) in 1999 by amendment of the constitution of IEB. The Bye-Laws were formed by IEB in 2001 for functioning BPERB and BPERB has started functioning since then.
The introduction of WTO-sponsored General Assembly Agreement on Trade and Services (GATA) treaty made it necessary for the free movement of professional engineering services between nations. Thus, with a view to providing competencies of international standard to the professional engineers, IEA formed IPEA to look after engineering profession. As a party to this organization, BPERB became a provisional member of EMF (Engineers Mobility Forum) in 2003. The EMF has been renamed as IPEA (International Professional Engineers Agreement) in 2009.
