EA has published following updates related to the migration skills assessment.

New fees structure is going to be implemented from 1 September. The fees structure is available here: https://www.engineersaustralia.org.au/sites/default/files/EngineersAustralia_MSA_Fees_2019-2020.pdf

Migration agent appointment form has been updated. New form is available here: https://www.engineersaustralia.org.au/sites/default/files/resource-files/2019-02/Appointment%20of%20person%20to%20act%20as%20an%20agent_Feb2019.pdf

Change in the length of ban: Depending on the unethical behaviour, the ban imposed could be either 12 or 24 months. Engineers Australia maintains the right to impose or extend the ban period when the unethical behaviour was found at any stage of the process. This will be deployed soon. EA will also notify the department of Home Affairs about the unethical behaviour.
