Rogep Update March 2019

Over 500 Registrants and growing fast 


RoGEP now has over 580 registrants confirming the continuing progressive growth of the register.  


The original target was 700 registrants so the register is well on the way to achieving that. Now that the register is growing in size, it provides more confidence both to ground engineers who are considering applying, and clients who are considering making formal registration a requirement of ground engineering staff working on their projects.


The names of all registrants are provided in the list published on the ICE website.


RoGEP is pleased to announce that the Engineers Ireland and the Irish Geological Society have become affiliated with the Register, thereby enabling their chartered and professional members to apply for RoGEP registration.


You can apply to join the RoGEP if you're chartered with ICE, the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IoM3); or the Geological Society London (GSL), Engineers Ireland (EI), or the Irish Geological Society.


We are also pleased to announce that we now accepting applications from Incorporated Engineers and Technicians for the new Practitioner and Technician levels of RoGEP Registration.


Thus, there are now five grades of RoGEP Registrant:


·         Engineering  Technician (EngTech) - RoGEP Technician  

·         Incorporated Engineer (IEng) - RoGEP Practitioner

·         Chartered Engineer/Chartered Geologist (CEng/CGeol):

o   RoGEP Professional

o   RoGEP Specialist

o   RoGEP Adviser

Increase in the number of Assessors

RoGEP is pleased to announce that during 2018 the register has increased its number of assessors to almost 60


Ground Forum on board 


We are very pleased to be able to report that having answered concerns raised by the Ground Forum, the Forum is now fully supporting the aspirations and working of RoGEP.


Europe sees RoGEP as an example 


Following the meeting of the ground engineering representatives of 18 European Countries at Leuven in April 2016 and Oslo in 2017, RoGEP is seen as one example that could be taken forward by those organisations in the international community seeking further registration of their professionals in ground engineering. It is anticipated that the collaboration with European ground engineering organisations may result  in registration being incorporated into the national annexes of the revised Eurocodes.



You may have noticed that UKRoGEP is now simply titled RoGEP which reflects the Register’s international status.
