The Engineering Council of Ghana says all engineers and engineering firms must register and obtain a license as a standard of engineering practice in the country.

The Council says failure to do so will attract fines or jail terms or both from the 1st of November 2021.

Practitioners are therefore being asked to take advantage of the grace period from now till November to get licensed.

The directive is in line with provisions in the Engineering Council Act, 2011(Act 819) and LI 241.

The Act provides the enabling environment for the council to carry out its functions, which include monitoring, evaluating and taking corrective actions on the performance of engineering practitioners, firms and units.

It is also licensing relevant and appropriate engineering bodies to certify individuals and corporate bodies and advise on engineering matters.

To help achieve this aim, the council is to undertake a vigorous licensing and registration drive to certify both local and expatriate engineering practitioners, firms and units and engineering education units.

The council has selected the Ghana Institution of Engineering and the Institute of Engineering and Technology to register and license engineering practitioners in the country.

The Minister for Works and Housing, Mr. Francis Asenso-Boakye urged the licensing bodies to support the council in carrying out its functions to avoid losses and reduce costs of engineering works.

Some engineers who have already been certified were also presented with their certificates.

The council called on all practitioners to take advantage of the window to get their license and avoid the penalties.
