PROFESSIONAL CIVIL engineers registered with the Engineering Council of South Africa as P.Eng can now become members of the ICE without need for a professional review.
This latest ICE Mutual Recognition Agreement with ECSA and the South African Institution of Civil Engineers also applies in reverse for ICE members wishing to become members of SAICE and has the approval of the Engineering Council.
It is the latest in a string of mutual recognition agreements which now tie the ICE with engineers in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Ireland, Spain and Portugal.
Meanwhile, the Engineering Council has signed a trilateral agreement ensuring that the professional qualifications of British chartered and incorporated engineers are recognised in both France and Italy.
This agreement, which came after two years of negotiations, will also give engineers of equivalent status in France and Italy the same recognition when working in Britain.
