About AEEBC Projects
The AEEBC is involved in projects covering all aspects relevant to the profession of building surveyors and construction experts. It is recognised within the AEEBC that each member country faces on going legislative changes related to their professions that is largely driven by EU legislation. The opportunity to disseminate and discuss each countries approach, understanding and implementation is key to the ethos of the AEEBC. The AEEBC is also involved in Leonardo De Vinci Programmes with member countries.
These programmes link policy to practice in the field of vocational education and training (VET). Projects range from those giving individuals the chance to improve their competences, knowledge and skills through a period abroad, to Europe-wide co-operation between training organizations. The programme funds a wide range of actions, notably cross-border mobility initiatives; co-operation projects to develop and spread innovation; and thematic networks. The AEEBC has sponsored a successful Leonardo da Vinci (LdV) bid for funding which focuses on the creation of manuals promoting common platforms of managerial qualifications in the field of construction.
The organization comprises member delegates representing the national organizations meet at a general assembly bi–annually where the many issues concerning the building surveyor/expert are debated and a number of construction environmental and pathology related workshops.
Below are examples on on-going and finished projects where AEEBC are playing or have played an active role.
AEEBC is giving expertise to a working group under the EU commission in its work to make a guide to the implementation of the directive on health and safety on construction sites 92/57.
The work-group was set up a year ago with representation from governments, employees and employers with assistance from various experts including AEEBC. The purpose of the guide is to help new member states to better understand the directive and thus to ensure a more even and correct implementation across member states. In that respect the guide is in line with the commission’s current work to ensure that some of the older member states make necessary amendments to their existing legislation. It is fair to say that although the directive is very detailed in its requirements; it has been implemented rather unevenly.
The guide is hoped also to be of inspiration to professionals and workers throughout Europe.
