To determine if an engineering degree awarded is Washington Accord accredited, please refer to the links from the International Engineering Alliance on their website: http://www.ieagreements.org/Washington-Accord/Accredited.cfm.Where a Sydney Accord accredited undergraduate engineering degree is a requirement, the engineering technology degree has to be awarded from or after the date the country became a signatory and must be on the list of accredited programmes of the signatory country. To determine if an engineering technology degree awarded is Sydney Accord accredited, please refer to the links from the International Engineering Alliance on their website: http://www.ieagreements.org/Sydney/signatories.cfm.Where a Seoul Accord accredited undergraduate IT degree is a requirement, the IT degree has to be awarded from or after the date the country became a signatory and must be on the list of accredited programmes of the signatory country. To determine if an IT degree awarded is Seoul Accord accredited, please refer to the following link: http://www.seoulaccord.org/about.php?id=91

Note 4: Qualifications held by applicants claiming points based on this list under the Skilled Migrant Category must be recognized under the Skilled Migrant Category.

Note 5: Where New Zealand registration is specified as a requirement and states “a qualification(s) in this area of absolute skill shortage is/are”, a person only needs to hold the particular New Zealand registration and to have undertaken any necessary work experience in order to meet the requirements of the List. In these cases, qualifications are listed only for the purposes of people applying for work visas under WF4.1.
