Individuals may register with EGoS if they are already qualified Surveyors, Engineers or students on a recognised Surveying course with the member organisations who form EGoS.
They are required to be paid-up members of their respective organisations. You are invited to commence the registration process by logging onto the EGoS home page and hit "register" and follow the path. Your application will be ratified by the professional body with whom you are a member and by EGoS before you will be registered. The process will take a little time.

Quality Assurance - News

CIQA Limited have successfully obtained accreditation from UKAS for an Integrated Management System for Professionals in the Construction Industry. This includes ISO 9001 the Quality Management System and ISO 14001 the Environmental Management System. It is intended to add ISO 18001 the Occupational Health & Safety System in the near future.

Although the Integrated Management System includes both standards CIQA can offer ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 separately. Bill Cowap’s view is “that to achieve the original aims and objectives of free movement we should concentrate on the ISO 9001 standard at present leaving 14001 as a standard that can be added at a later date if required by legislation or demand.”

To advance the proposals the following sequence of events is being suggested:-

1. The Group Scheme should be amended by the representative Institution in each member country to take into account local laws and regulations. This will be in the form of an amendment page within the existing set of approved documents.

2. This will effectively create a group scheme within each member country.

3. Once agreed the Institution will market the scheme to its members badged as EGoS/the Institution/CIQA. CIQA will prepare the marketing leaflet and articles for inclusion in Journals/Magazines/etc. Translation will be by the member Institution

4. The main contact address for potential new members would be the Institution who would forward the details to CIQA who would prepare a quotation.

5. CIQA would prepare and maintain a database to inform EGoS and the Institution of take up.

6. In time a franchise could be established in each member country to administer the scheme should the take up and interest be sufficient.
