Register of Ground Engineering Professionals

The Geological Society of London (GSL), The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), The Institution of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IoM3), Engineering Ireland (EI) and the Institution of Geologists of Ireland (IGI) collaborated to enhance the competence of Ground Engineering professionals and drive additional value into this segment of the construction industry. 

Under the leadership of the British Geotechnical Association (BGA) and on behalf of Ground Forum these institutions have sponsored the development of the Register of Ground Engineering Professionals (RoGEP).

The Register provides external stakeholders including clients and other professionals with a means to identify individuals who are suitably qualified and competent in ground engineering, be they consultants', contractors', public bodies' or academic backgrounds. 

These individuals may be involved in various disciplines or on various projects that fall under the broad heading of Ground Engineering which is defined by 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’.

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. 
  • Furthermore, the must comply with the Code of Conduct of their host institution in all their professional activities.

To apply you must be chartered with the GSL, the ICE, the IoM3, EI or IGI.

You can see a current list of registrants and the latest applications dates on the ICE website.
