Way clear for Canadian accreditation

PLANS FOR a mutual exemption agreement between the ICE and the Canadian Corporation of Professional Engineers have been cleared at the latest Professional Development meeting.

The meeting agreed to approve the paper subject to clarification of the CCPE's Professional Examination (PE).

Under the agreement which is forecast for 1999, UK engineers in Canada would apply to the provincial professional examination board with a strong endorsement from the CCPE.

Canadian engineers coming to the UK would no longer need to include a technical submission as part of their review.

Progress to an MEA has been smoothed by both nations signing the Engineers Mobility Forum which establishes a register of international engineers through the agreement of an academic benchmark between the eight signatories. The prospect of an MEA with Canada came closer at July's EMF meeting.
