This reviews the steps being taken in Hong Kong to make the recognition of engineers independent of Britain before the return of sovereignty to China in 1997. It outlines the process needed to achieve recognition at a standard which is acceptable to the leading international bodies in the English speaking world and predicts that local independence in applying this will be achieved during 1995. Software Engineering is discussed in the same light as any other discipline within the general framework of engineering. It shows that, despite being a relative new-comer to the processes of granting professional recognition, and not having developed an extended experience of accrediting software engineering courses or post-graduate training facilities, it may take a lead in the process of gaining international recognition
