The Professional Engineers Board (PEB) met with Philip Brave Davis, the deputy prime minister and minister of works and urban Development, and Renward Wells, the parliamentary secretary in the ministry, on March 1st to update them on the work of the board and to discuss matters of mutual interest to all.

The board was established by an act of Parliament in 2004 to regulate the practice of engineering in The Bahamas.

Under the act, only engineers registered by the PEB are permitted to provide professional engineering services in the country.  This is to safeguard life, property, economic interest, public welfare and the environment.

The primary item of discussion was the solicitation of government’s support for the work of the board, with particular focus on ensuring that all engineers who hold responsible charge for engineering works/projects and either work directly for government ministries, departments, corporations or agencies as employees, or those engaged as consultants whether locally or internationally based, are registered engineers in accordance with the act.

The PEB also informed them that one of the principal goals of this board’s term was to finalize and present after due consultation the draft regulations required under the act.

The deputy prime minister pledged his personal support, that of his ministry and the government for the work of the PEB and requested that the board keep him and his ministry updated with respect to any matter of an engineering nature that concerns the PEB and that could have an impact on the Bahamian people.

The PEB in turn thanked the deputy prime minister and parliamentary secretary for their support and pledged its continued commitment to providing a fair, transparent and professionally regulated engineering sector in The Bahamas.
