The UK Register of Ground Engineering Professionals (RoGEP) provides external stakeholders, including clients and other professionals, with a means to identify individuals who are suitably qualified and competent in ground engineering.
Ground Engineering is defined by the Ground Forum as ‘an understanding of geological structures, materials and processes, combined with the systematic application of investigative, scientific and engineering techniques to produce practical solutions to ground related issues for the benefit of society’.
There are three grades of Registrant:
- Registered Ground Engineering Professional
- Registered Ground Engineering Specialist
- Registered Ground Engineering Adviser
To apply you are required to be chartered with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the Institutute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IoM3) or the Geological Society London (GSL).
RoGEP Registrants must have an appreciation of other disciplines and interests that extend beyond, but interface with, ground engineering. They must be able to demonstrate how ground engineering interacts with other technical professions. Registrants are entitled to use the description Registered Ground Engineering Professional / Specialist / Adviser as appropriate.
Clients wishing to see a current list of members, or those wishing to make an application, should contact the Register via the website at www.ukrogep.org.uk.
