Draft Identification of Engineering Work Regulations.
On the 22 November 2013 the Engineering Council of South Africa approved the draft regulations which were submitted to the CBE approval.
The South African Council for the Project and Construction Management Profession(SACPCMP) and The South African Council for the Quantity Surveyors Profession(SACQSP) raised overlaps issues which contributed to delaying the process of the CBE approving the ECSA draft regulations.
The overlap-issues have now been resolved. The said draft regulations will be considered by the CBE Council on the 17 March 2014 for approval, where after the CBE will apply for an exemption with the Competition Commission.
The article in question was published by the CBE in support of the Competition Commission Consultative process. The same process will be followed where ECSA is concerned once the exemption application is lodged.
We cannot confirm when the exemption application will be lodged, the CBE is committed to submit the application immediately upon approval by the CBE council and before 31 March 2014.
