The integration of Europe into a single market in 1992 will have far-reaching implications for professionals practising within Europe. Since engineering is more closely linked to industry, manufacture and transport than any other profession, it is vital that the impact of the Single European Market is fully appreciated by all professional engineers and their employers. With contributions from several European countries, this book looks at practical ways in which to utilize new opportunities and to meet the challenge to existing markets arising from the Single European Market. Parity of qualifications and interchangeability of professional standards within Europe is discussed, together with education and training processes, especially safety awareness. The year 1992 will be of considerable importance to the civil engineering profession and its Institution. This book combines an analysis of the issues at stake and their practical demands on a national and individual scale.
