Recognition of UK Construction Professionals’ Qualifications in a post-Brexit ‘third country’ …

Are YOU a Brexit-ready Construction / Property professional? ... 

Here at the ICM we are carefully following the UK government's release of relevant information on the post-Brexit situation and status of the various professionals operating in construction related duties ...

Preparing for Brexit is not just a matter for EU and national authorities, but also for the many private individuals who undertake professional roles in the UK construction industry and the UK business clients who employ them  ... businesses are reminded of legal repercussions which need to be considered when the UK ceases to be a member of the EU ...

Recognition of professional qualifications in practice:

The recognition of professional qualifications laid down in Directive 2005/36/EC enables the free movement of professionals such as doctors or architects within the EU. Other professions such as sailors or aircraft controllers do not fall under Directive 2005/36/EC and are governed by specific legislation. Special laws also exist for lawyers and commercial agents ...

The professions falling under the Directive are nurses, midwifes, doctors (general practitioners and specialists), dental practitioners, pharmacists, ARCHITECTS and veterinary surgeons ...

Directive 2005/36/EC applies in general to regulated professions unless otherwise stated ... A non-exhaustive list of professions covered by Directive 2005/36/EC is available in the official database of regulated professions ...

The European Commission has published guidance for stakeholders that analyses the legal consequences of the UK's withdrawal on regulated professions and recognition of professional qualifications

The Institute of Construction Management offers its unique CDM Competence Registry™ to all the practicing UK Construction Professionals who may be affected in some way by Brexit and who will need the means to have their Professional Credibility robustly and securely audited under ISO9001 standards by independent third-party experts and to be duly Registered and Certificated by the ICM Registrar ... 

The ICM CDM Competence Registry™ also uniquely includes for the departmental dynamics of Local Authorities and Public Services teams undertaking property related functions.  This is where a department or team are managed and all staff members / officers  are part of that team to all contribute in some way to the CDM process.   This therefore creates a need for all to be competent at their individual levels.   Similarly, the leader and manager of the team who is the guiding mind of the team needs to understand the dynamics required within each team to understand and measure the risk profile.

The dynamics of the transient project team of assembled officers can vary for each project and the project manager similarly needs to effectively understand the risk profile of the particular project based team.

The solution is where the ICM Online Academy and the associated ICM CDM Registry™ can unify and test to whichever level is required within the project team for each individual team member - providing a standardised constantly updated passport certificate for each team member that logs their competency, experience, knowledge and training, which will give them a passport validating their current position within the Register.

The Register will be securely managed, retained, updated, and available for downloading to each member during their continued membership within the ICM ...
