The Council for the Built Environment (the CBE) is a statutory body established in terms of the Council for the Built Environment Act, 43 of 2000 (the CBE Act). The CBE is an entity of the Department of Public Works and Infrastructure (DPWI).
The CBE is an overarching body, regulating the activities of the six councils for the following built environment professions (the CBEP): engineering, architecture, landscape architecture, quantity surveying, property valuation and project and construction management. The CBE Act impels the CBE to, after consultation with the Competition Commission (CC) and in consultation with the Councils for the Built Environment Professions (CBEP), identify the scope of work for each category of registration (section 21 of the CBE Act). The consultation with the CC was conducted. The CBE is keen to continuously engage the CC on the process of regulating the built environment professions. The CBE will also seek collaboration with the CC on the development and communication of an advocacy position on the regulation on the built environment professions.
Note to Stakeholders
The South African Council for the Project and Construction Management Professions (SACPCMP) is empowered by section18 of Act No.48 of 2000 to certify, register and regulate the Project and Construction Management Professions.
