“A common underlying theme is that there is no shared and accepted view within the engineering profession, and between buyers and sellers of engineering, of the engineering perspective that should govern the relationships between the parties to an engineering task and of the professional engineer’s duty and standard of care in that task.” Why Do We Need PPIR?
I guess I should have defined the job a bit better We actually would have preferred a tunnel The engineer told me he’d done one of these before.
Engineering profession already has Ethics and Competency standards What is at the core of PPIR? Ethics Competency
