Engineering Expert Panel

 

Introduction

The use of engineering experts in both litigation and arbitration is increasing with more arbitrators and courts opting to appoint engineering experts to assist in complex and technical matters.  With this in view, the Institution of Engineers Singapore (IES) is forming an Engineering Expert Panel (EEP) to respond to the calls of assistance from the community and is intended to be a service to the community.  This will also promote IES as the national body of engineers and at the same time enhance our image as a learned society.

 

  • A Member of the EEP is a person who, by virtue of his or her extensive or specialized experience or knowledge of a particular branch or area of engineering, is capable of providing expert opinions on specific aspects of a project.  In addition, applicants should meet the following criteria:

  • either a Fellow of the IES, or a Senior Member of the IES who has been  a Member of the IES for at least 15 years; and

  • have attended a prescribed expert witness course and training organised by the IES or have sufficient experience acting as an expert witness.

  • Any person who meets the above requirements, but is not registered with the Professional Engineers Board (PEB) may also apply.

The IES has set up a Monitoring Committee to administer the EP scheme.  The composition of the Monitoring Committee can be found from the IES website.
