British Professional Qualifications in the Construction Field
Set out below is the text of a background note issued by the Construction Industry Overseas Directorate, Department of the Environment to British Embassy posts in the Middle and Far East, West Africa and South America. The initiative of the Department will be applauded. The content of the note is of wider interest in that it makes clear that, for example in the EEC context, the Government regards corporate membership of Chartered Institutions as representing a standard of professional competence at least equivalent to that represented by the holding of a relevant first degree at a British University.
