Rogep Update November 2016

Over 400 Registrants and growing fast UK RoGEP now has over 400 registrants confirming the continuing progressive growth of the register.  The original target was 700 registrants so the register is well on the way to achieving that. Now that the register is gaining in size, it provides more confidence to both candidates, who are considering applying, and clients who are considering making formal registration a requirement of ground engineering staff working on their projects.

The names of all registrants are provided in the list published on the ICE website.

You can apply to join the UK RoGEP if you're chartered with ICE; the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IoM3); or the Geological Society London (GSL).   To find out more to apply to visit ice.org.uk/rogep or contact registers@ice.org.uk .

Increase in the number of Assessors. UK RoGEP is pleased to announce that during 2016 the register has doubled its number of assessors from 25 to 50.

Ground Forum on board. We are very pleased to be able to report that having answered concerns raised by the Ground Forum, the Forum is now fully supporting the aspirations and working of RoGEP.

Europe sees RoGEP as an example. Following the meeting of the ground engineering representatives of 18 European Countries at Leuven in  April 2016 RoGEP is seen as one example that could be taken forward by those organisations in the international community within Europe and elsewhere, seeking to further registration of their professionals in ground engineering.
