Becoming a CEAS member is not just about getting the right insurance—you'll get free expert engineering insurance advice, assistance with terms of engagements, industry discounts and the chance to learn from other businesses like yours. 

Tailored extendable insurance

You need the right insurance to protect you, your business and your employees. We offer professional indemnity insurance and other professional, personal and travel insurance options. We’re engineers too, and we work with you to make sure you get the cover you need.

Insurance plans

Quality policies and stable premiums

Our insurance policies are top quality—they're all vetted by specialist advisors and fellow consulting engineers.

Professional indemnity insurance costs can be unpredictable. Our long-standing relationship with stable reinsurers means we protect you from changing costs without compromising the cover you receive.

When you become a member of CEAS and ACE NZ at the same time you are eligble to get $250 per year off your firm's membership fees for the first 2 years.
