Ipenz Agreement

For more information on consulting agreements or to discuss aspects of construction law, please contact: the two standard form agreements have been verified and new iterations have been published and made available. The short consulting contract regulates the relationship between the engineer and his client. It deals with issues such as how and when you are paid, what level of care and skills you have to offer, what happens in case of dispute between you and your client. Understanding this agreement and its impact on your work is essential for anyone who is directly under contract with a customer or a contract on behalf of a company. In June 2012, the Engineering Council and the Institution of Professional Engineers New Zealand (IPENZ) signed an agreement to facilitate the mobility of engineers through optimized registration and professional body processes. The agreement applies to engineering board registrants when they apply for the corresponding IPENZ membership and registration. Non-filers who are members of the participating professional engineering institutes (PEIs) who have obtained a professional affiliation on the basis of proof of competency at a level equivalent to that required for registration may also be considered under the agreement. The agreement provides for a derogation from certain elements of the evaluation process where the institution of origin has entered into an equivalent procedure. In some cases, the home institution may be invited, with the applicant`s consent, to provide details of its assessment, for example. B if this included additional or work-based learning.

Similarly, IPENZ members and registrants can benefit from the agreement if they apply for equivalent membership to one of the participating PEIs and for registration with the Engineering Council. British engineers applying for IPENZ membership or registration in New Zealand should contact IPENZ for more information. New Zealand engineers should contact the relevant IEP. Participating PEIs are located to the right of this page under „Useful Links.“ Nick Gillies – nick.gillies@heskethhenry.co.nz or `64 9 375 8767 The direction of the most significant changes relates to the addition of a requirement, an „early warning“ (in line with a trend in the construction industry as a whole to these types of early notification clauses), updating suspension rights, a quasi-time procedure for which the 2002 Construction Contracts Act does not apply, and updating health and safety provisions.
