History of JSPE

What is Japan Professional Engineers Association (JSPE)?

JSPE was established in Tokyo in September 2000 with the aim of improving the technical level of PE in Japan, improving and securing the status of engineers, and establishing its ethical aspects (serving health, safety, and welfare). It is a specified non-profit organization (NPO corporation).
In August 2001, we entered into an affiliation agreement with the US Professional Engineers Association (NSPE), advocating the practice and dissemination of Western-style engineering principles represented by the NSPE Code of Ethics. ..In February 8, we signed an MOU with the Japan Accreditation Board for Engineering Education (JABEE) for the purpose of promoting the acquisition of US Professional Engineering qualifications.
