Each Registrant is assigned a unique registration number comprised of five to six digits. The first two digits identify the Category of Registration while the other three or four digits constitute a chronological number assigned to the registrant at the time of Registration.

For example, the number 04-0110, indicates that the Engineer is registered in the category of Civil Engineering and his chronological number at the time of registration is 110.  Currently there are just over 1000 active registrants and the current chronological number of registrants after 37 years of registration is just about 1700.
