What Do You Mean I've Been Practicing without a License? Certification and Licensing of Requirements Engineering Professionals
Requirements Engineering, IEEE International Conference on (2000)

We would like the panel to address these questions: What are the goals we want to achieve? If software quality and reliability are the ultimate goals, is the licensing of software practitioners the best way to achieve them? Who should be licensed? In particular, should practitioners who work on requirements-related activities be licensed? Who should be the licenser? In North America, the professional engineering societies have taken the lead in licensing (or planning to license) software engineers. Should the ACM take a more active role? Are our best requirements practices sufficiently mature and stable to be called engineering activities? Can we agree on the requirements notations, processes and activities that belong in a core body of knowledge for software engineering?
