WORK AND RESULTS FROM MAY 2019
In accordance with goals prescribed by mentioned Law and Statute, the Serbian Chamber of Engineers promotes and protects the interests of its members. Also, the Chamber is maintaining ethical norms which members have to comply during preparation of planning documents and project designs, as well as during execution of works. The Chamber opens up opportunities for international cooperations, mutual cooperations and exchange of experiences among members, as well as for cooperations with engineering companies.
One of the most important events last year was a signing of the Agreement of Cooperation with the Serbian Ministry of Construction, Transport, and Infrastructure on September 2019. The goal of the Agreement is the improvement of working conditions for engineers on the fields of planning and construction, constant improvement and introduction with technical and technological solutions implemented in complex capital projects realized under jurisdiction of the Ministry. The Agreement also opens the possibility of exchange experience through common activities in projects of social and economic importance, aimed at the modernization of the society as a whole.
In February 2020 we also signed a contract with the Ministry of Construction, Transport and Infrastructur. The organization of professional exams, issuing licenses, and maintaining the Registry of Licenced Engineers, Architects, and Spatial Planners and the Registry of Licenced Contractors was entrusted to the Chamber by this contract.
In our future work we will do our best to justify the trust of our members, to support their professional work, as well as to reach some of our common goals, most notable being the advancement of the engineering profession and the realization of national capital projects.
