2 POLITICAL WILL to PROTECT the PUBLIC THE LEGISLATORY BACKDROP THE PROFESSIONS in the BUILT ENVIRONMENT HOW are PROFESSIONS REGULATED

3 GOVERNMENT DEMONSTRATED POLITICAL WILL to PROTECT the PUBLIC INTEREST (HEALTH, SAFETY and ENVIRONMENT) by REGULATING the PROFESSIONS in the BUILT ENVIRONMENT

4 THE PROFESSIONS in the BUILT ENVIRONMENT Engineering Profession (Act No 46 of 2000) Architectural Profession (Act No 44 of 2000) PROJECT AND CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT PROFESSIONS (Act No 48 of 2000) LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURAL PROFESSION (Act No 45 of 2000) SA COUNCIL for the PROPERTY VALUERS PROFESSIONS (Act No 47 of 2000) SA COUNCIL for the QUANTITY SURVEYING PROFESSION (Act No 49 of 2000)

5 PROHIBITS UNREGISTERD PERSONS from PERFORMING IDENTIFIED WORK PECULIAR to the BUILT ENVIRONMENT identified work is reserved for REGISTERED PERSONS who ARE ACCOUNTABLE for THEIR ACTIONS in a manner CONSISTENT with GOVERNMENT’S COMPETITION POLICY which POLICY PROTECTS the HEALTH & SAFETY of the PUBLIC and the ENVIRONMENT and provides RECOURSE IN RELATION TO PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT

6 through the ESTABLISHMENT of the ECSA IDENTIFICATION of ENGINEERING WORK REGISTRATION of ENGINEERING PRACTITIONERS CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT (CPD) RECOURSE in relation to PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT

7 Section 20: IDENTIFICATION OF WORK “20.(1)The Council must, after receipt of the recommendations of the councils for the professions submitted to it in terms of the professions’ Acts, and before liaising with the Competition Commission in terms of section 4(q)- (a)determine policy with regard to the identification of work for the different categories of registered persons; (c)consult with any person, body or industry that may be affected by the identification of work in terms of this section. (2)The council, must after consultation with the Competition Commission, and in consultation with the councils for the professions, identify the scope of work for every category of registered persons.” COUNCIL FOR THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT ACT (ACT NO 43/2000)

8 Section 26: IDENTIFICATION OF WORK “Identification of work 26.(1)The council must consult with- (a)all voluntary associations; (b)any person; (c)any body; or (d)any industry, that may be affected by any laws regulating the built environment professions regarding the identification of the type of engineering work which may be performed by persons registered in any of the categories referred to in section 18, including work which may fall within the scope of any other profession regulated by the professions’ Acts referred to in the Council for the Built Environment Act, 2000 (Act No 43/2000). (2)After the process of consultation the council must submit recommendations to the CBE regarding the work identified in terms of subsection (1), for its consideration and identification in terms of section 20 of the Council for the Built Environment Act, (3)A person who is not registered in terms of this Act, may not- (a)perform any kind of work identified for any category of registered persons; (b)pretend to be, or in any manner hold or allow himself or herself to be held out as a person registered in terms of this Act; (c)use the name of any registered person or any name or title referred to in section 18 or 21; or (d) perform any act indicating, or calculated to lead persons to believe, that he or she is registered in terms of this Act.

22 ENGINEER – ACTIVITIES and PROBLEM SOLVING are DESCRIBED as COMPLEX ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGIST - ACTIVITIES and PROBLEM SOLVING are DESCRIBED as BROADLY DEFINED CERTIFICATED ENGINEER - ACTIVITIES and PROBLEM SOLVING are DESCRIBED as BROADLY DEFINED with SOME SPECIFIC LEGAL ASPECTS. ENGINEERING TECHNICIAN - ACTIVITIES and PROBLEM SOLVING are DESCRIBED as WELL DEFINED

25 The following preliminary list of FAQs will be used to identify the significant issues in the Metallurgical/Chemical/Materials Engineering, Mineral Beneficiation and Metallurgy practice area: (a)WHY is all this (regulation of the engineering profession) necessary? (b)HOW does a qualified Metallurgical/Chemical/Materials Engineer, Engineering Technologist or Engineering Technician become a competent ME/MBM/M practitioner? (c)HOW does a qualified Metallurgist (Scientist) who substantially practises Identified Engineering Work (IEW) become registered with the ECSA? (d)HOW do I progress thorough the ranks if I do NOT have a recognised/accredited qualification(-s)? (e)HOW do Metallurgical Managers without the recognised technical qualification become registered with the ECSA? (f)HOW does ECSA’s Stage 1/Stage 2 professional development process work? (g)WHAT is the position of ME/MB/M practitioners at Level 5 on the 10-Level NQF as it pertains to the imminent regulation of the Engineering Profession? (h)WHAT is the connection between the Competent Person Paradigm and the imminent regulation of the Engineering Profession? (i)HOW will the Regulation of the Engineering Profession work? (j)WHAT is the difference(-s) between Engineering Work and the Identified Engineering Work? FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS METALLURGICAL PRACTITIONERS PRESENTATION TO COUNCILS OF MMMA AND SACPS

26 ► ► The regulation of the engineering profession applies to the SA Mining and Minerals Sector and consequently to the Metallurgical Practice Area ► ► Some Metallurgical Practitioners perform Scientific Work ► ► Some Metallurgical Practitioners perform Engineering Work ► ► Some Metallurgical Practitioners perform Identified Engineering Work (IEW) ► ► Those Metallurgical Practitioners substantially practising IEW must be registered in the appropriate category with ECSA ► ► Some Metallurgical Practitioners who perform IEW are not eligible to register with ECSA, e.g. Scientists (BSc Metallurgy/Chemistry) ► ► Metallurgical Practitioners who have an accredited first relevant qualification in engineering are eligible to be registered with ECSA e.g.BEng (Metallurgical, Chemical, Materials Engineering disciplines) BTech (Metallurgical, Chemical, Materials Engineering disciplines) NDip (Metallurgical, Chemical, Materials Engineering disciplines) ► ► Some Eengineering practitioners are inappropriately used in the SAM&MS ► ► Organisational Design is misaligned with the imminent Regulation of the Engineering Profession CONCLUSIONS PRESENTATION TO COUNCILS OF MMMA AND SACPS

27 ► ► Organisational Design for the Metallurgical Practice Area need to be aligned with the imminent Regulation of the Engineering Profession (IDoEW Impact Assessment) ► ► Metallurgical practitioners to be categorized: ► ► Persons performing Scientific Work ► ► Persons performing Engineering Work (as defined) ► ► Persons substantially practising IEW ► ► Metallurgical Practitioners who are in possession of a relevant, accredited first engineering qualification, should be motivated to apply for registration. ► ► Metallurgical Practitioners who are not eligible to register in appropriate category: ► ► Apply for registration based on current qualifications and experience/proof that IEW is performed ► ► To obtain appropriate accredited, relevant basic engineering qualification ► ► To supplement current qualifications so as to comply with 10x ELOs at the appropriate level ► ► Operate under the Partial Exemption Clause WAY FORWARD PRESENTATION TO COUNCILS OF MMMA AND SACPS
