|Engineering Expert Panel Registry
Last Updated: 3 Oct 2016
| I. 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.
