|CoE in discussions with Engineering Board on Engineering Act|
The Chamber of Engineers and the Engineering Board have met on a number of occasions, in order to discuss the Engineering Act. Arising from these discussions, a Legal Notice listing changes to the Engineering Act was recently compiled by the Engineering Board and published.
The Legal Notice refers to the updating of the tasks of the engineer, stating that:
The practice of engineering consists in the activities of design, specification, development, installation, commissioning, operation, maintenance and decommissioning of any mechanical, electrical, chemical process, information and related systems, and such activities shall be carried out by or under the authorisation and guidance of an engineer who is a warrant holder or a partnership of engineers, competent in the field as recognised by the Board.
Through a purposely set up Council sub-committee, the Chamber is continuing to collaborate with the Engineering Board with the aim to update the Act to reflect today's circumstances. Among the salient points, the Chamber aims to include the obligatory continuous professional development for engineers and the formal representation of the Chamber on this Board.
The full Legal Notice can be found here.
