New tier of Council registration

With advent of the promulgation of the identification of work expected later this year, the quantity surveying profession need to recognise alternative tiers of registration for persons working in the QS field other than as a PrQS. The Council has commenced investigation into the possibility of recognising persons who specialise in the contractor perspective of quantity surveying, plus the “back-room” technical support surveyor. Each new tier requires to be fully described, with levels of competencies set, routes to registration prescribed and any other specific limitation in the market that they may offer their services.

This will be work-shopped over the next 2 – 3 months and anyone wishing to add input, should contact the Registrar.
