After the success of Engineers Australia Skill Assessment procedure, Outcome Letter appropriate for migration purposes will be sent to you by means of email. In the event that you have nominated a migration agent following up on your behalf, your outcome letter will be sent by means of email to your agent instead. For the letters that cannot be issued electronically, it will be sent by ordinary post and you may be charged a fee for this service. The outcome letters can be confirmed online by entering the application details on the Assessment Outcome Verification page.
Third parties including the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) can perceive your outcome by filling in the required fields on the outcome verification page. Third parties will have the capacity to see your assessment date, granted occupational category and a copy of your outcome letter.

In the letter, the assessor addresses that the competencies that you have demonstrated in your competency demonstration report (CDR) meets the current requirement for their classified occupation. The letter also mentions that under the General Skilled Migration points test, your qualification is assessed to the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) level as the highest relevant qualification. Relevant Skilled Employment is an additional assessment service that you need to apply and pay for. If you have not applied for this additional service, your employment will not be reflected in the outcome letter. And if you have applied for this, it will be assessed in support of your assessment outcome.
Please keep in mind that “all advice mentioned in the outcome letter is based on evidence as submitted, and the assessment does not constitute an opinion as to the veracity of claims made. Determination of points under the skilled migration points test remains at the discretion of delegated officers of the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.”
