ICE signs deal in Russia

Overseas brief

The Russian Society of Civil Engineers has signed an agreement with the ICE to establish an accreditation centre working to Institution standards in Moscow.

The agreement comes on the back of the decision to allow only those organisations which employ licensed engineers to perform work for the Moscow Government.

The agreement was signed during a recent visit to Russia by ICE vice president (international) Brian Crossley, international director John Whitwell, John McRoberts and Richard Thomson international deputy director .

Whitwell addressed 250 of the largest construction organisations in Moscow on the ICE, professional standards and the need for licensing of professional engineers.

With the introduction of the accreditation centre, the ICE hopes there will be a large increase in members throughout Russia.

Also during the visit, the Moscow State University for Civil Engineers and Belgorod State Technical Academy of Building Materials were presented with JBM accreditation certificates by UK ambassador to Russia Sir Andrew Wood.
