IES / ACES C & S Resident Engineers (RE) and Resident Technical Officers Registry (RTO)

                                                                                                                                                                     Last Updated: 11 Sept 2014

The construction industry is advancing with newer and more complex construction technology being continuously introduced at the construction site.

The integrity and performance of the structure would be impaired if RE or RTO, who is part of the supervision team at site, do not possess the acceptable quality and professional competence in supervising such construction works.

 

The Building Control Act has been amended to require all accredited site supervisors,  comprising Resident Engineers (RE) and Resident Technical Officers (RTO), to be accredited with the Joint Accreditation Committee (JAC) of the Institution of Engineers Singapore and the Association of Consulting Engineers Singapore.  This will take effect from 15 Feb 2009.  

Only accredited site supervisors who remain accredited with the JAC can continue as accredited site supervisors for supervision of structural works for any new or on-going projects on or after 15 Feb 2009.  The details of the accreditation with JAC are stated in Part II below.
 

Accreditation with the JAC will provide accredited site supervisors with the appropriate training opportunities, seminars and courses at discounted rates to enhance your technical know-how and help accredited site supervisors keep abreast with the latest construction technology.
