CoE participating in MCCAA Committee on National Standard for PV systems

The CoE has expressed its concern about the quality, reliability and safety of the PV installations being installed in Malta. Consequently it had commissioned Ing. Tony Muscat and Ing. Ray Vassallo to prepare a draft Code of Practice (COP), which would guide owners, engineers and installers on how these installations should be set up. The objective was that this COP would be forwarded to the Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority (MCCAA) for accreditation.

Subsequently, the Malta Resources Authority (MRA) circulated an electric circuit diagram of a recommended typical installation, also airing certain concerns about the protection of users and people who might be maintaining these systems.

Support the Malta Engineering Excellence Awards 2012

 

The Chamber of Engineers has recently launched the 11th edition of the Malta Engineering Excellence Awards (MEEA). The MEEA are eagerly awaited by the Maltese engineering community every year. Last year we peaked an attendance of around 200 people. This year, the number is expected to be even higher. Moreover, we are pleased to note that over these past years the number of nominations received has been on the increase.

 

With the continuing economic crises in Europe, engineers are indispensable to support economic growth. The reason for this is that engineers are value adders, which is precisely what is need in the case of the current economic collapse. The local scenario is no different. The importance technology and engineers cannot therefore be over mentioned enough. Events such as the MEEA stimulate engineers to achieve and to add value to our economy.

CoE presents recommendations to Prime Minister and Opposition Leader

 

CoE meets Prime MinisterThe Chamber of Engineers recently met with both Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi and Leader of the Opposition Joseph Muscat during separate meetings, in order to present the Chamber’s recommendations for both parties’ electoral programmes.

Profession

The Chamber stated that The Engineering Act, which regulates the profession, needs updating to reflect today's circumstances. A Council sub-committee is working on a draft update of the Act. Salient points will include obligatory continuous professional development for engineers, professional indemnity insurance for all engineers and streamlining of the definition and duties of the engineer.

Engineers' supporting technicians should also be obliged to undergo continuous technical updating on the subject matter of their respective competences.

Regulation

The Chamber stated that engineers would be pleased to assist government and society at large to make the best use of technology in various areas. The Chamber believes that this can be achieved by regulating engineering systems. Such regulation should be in place at conceptual stages and not as an afterthought.

 

It was remarked that green technology schemes should be devised to not only benefit government to reach stipulated EU objectives, but should also better protect the consumer who is sometimes driven into buying technology which is not up to acceptable standard.
