The Chartered Institute of Building welcomes the new European Building Expert (EurBE) designation launched by the Association of European Building Surveyors and Construction Experts (AEEBC).
The new EurBE designation, which is open for CIOB members to apply for, is an opportunity for qualified professionals across Europe to achieve European recognition and accreditation alongside their qualifications.
Saleem Akram a director at the CIOB said, “The CIOB has worked hard to get greater transparency in how the recognition of professional qualifications is implemented, particularly in relation to the professions provided for under the EU Professional Qualifications Directive. These EurBE Professional Cards give construction professionals greater recognition across Europe leading to a fair and transparent mobility system.”
Professionals who are awarded EurBE qualification will be recognised as having met the AEEBC common European wide threshold standards required of a Building Expert. All individual members of the professional institutions and associations that make up the principal members of the AEEBC are eligible to apply. Assessment is based on academic qualifications, professional experience and commitment to comply with the AEEBC Code of Conduct and Ethics.
The professional designation “EurBE” is awarded to candidates who meet the experience and competence requirements of the AEEBC. Applicants are assessed firstly by an AEEBC National Committee in the country in which they operate and secondly by an AEEBC European Committee.
Approved EurBE’s also become EurBE members of the AEEBC. This gives access to information and networking opportunities across European construction and building sectors.
