    Registration of Structural Engineers
    Directory of Structural Engineers

    In order for civil chartered engineers to be eligible to carry out structural design of buildings and to certify such designs for the UDA, provincial and local authorities, it is necessary for such engineers to be listed in the Directory of Structural Engineers that the IESL is publishing annually. This requirement is made mandatory even for designing and certifying designs for buildings up to 4 Floors, because of the many complaints received by IESL in respect of unscrupulous non-chartered civil engineers who are using the ‘Chartered Engineer’ seals obtained illegally. The printed Registers are sent by the IESL to all relevant government authorities.
