Construction Supervisors Registration Regulations


Background

Hong Kong Institute of Construction Managers (“Institute” or “HKICM”), officially inaugurated on 5 May 1997, is the only local professional institution representing the construction management profession in Hong Kong to promote professional excellence in the construction management of both building and civil works. It has always been the professional and social responsibility of the Institute to take care of the development of the construction management profession, at all levels.
 
With a view to broaden the representation of construction practitioners and to widen the scope for the professional development needs of front-line site supervision personnel, the Institute has started to admit Construction Supervisor members since 2002 and to motivate site supervision personnel through systematic site management training and continuing professional development (CPD) activities provided by the Institute so as to enhance their professional status.
 
The role of site supervision personnel (which we classed as Construction Supervisor member) is important and in fact indispensable to ensure compliance of construction works with specifications, statutory, contractual and most of all, safety and environmental requirements. A role of such importance in the working level of construction works has yet been officially recognized with the deserving credit and sufficient CPD training was yet to be provided with.
 
It is on such rationale that the Institute recognized the need to set up its own registration system, in the absence of government regulation under legislation, to regulate the registration of and control the competency standard of site supervision personnel.
  
The registration system will register a list of Registered Construction Supervisors (“RCS”) that are assessed to have met stipulated minimum academic, professional and practical working experience requirements. The list shall be made available to the public to ascertain whether a person is a RCS who is competence and practising in construction supervisory practices.
 
 

Establishment of The Regulations

The Construction Supervisors Registration Regulations (“the Regulations”) have been adopted as Bye-Laws by the Hong Kong Institute of Construction Managers under Clause 10.3 of the Constitution at the AGM held on 18 December 2014 (and as amended at the AGM held on 14 December 2016) to provide for the registration of construction supervisors and disciplinary control of the practitioning activities of registered construction supervisors, and for related matters.


Objectives of Registration

The objectives for establishment of the construction supervisors registration system are:
   
(a) to regulate the registration of and control the competency standard of registered construction supervisors;
   
(b) to provide a platform for professional recognition and continuing professional training and development for competent construction supervisors;
   
(c) to provide confidence by setting an identifiable benchmark in the competence of construction supervisors; and
   
(d) to raise standards in the management of the construction process.

營造監工註冊規例


香港營造師學會(下稱〝學會〞或〝HKICM〞)於1997年5月5日正式成立為代表香港營造管理專業的唯一本地專業機構,致力於促進樓宇建築及土木工程營造管理專業的優質化。一直以來,學會堅持以專業和社會責任為己任,倡導各級營造管理專業人員及前線技術人員的專業發展、教育及持續進修培訓等工作。
 
為進一步擴闊建造業從業人員的代表性及針對前線地盤監督人員專業發展的需求,學會自2002年開始招收了新創設的營造監工會員,希望籍此鼓勵前線地盤監督人員,通過學會舉辦一系列的培訓及持續專業發展活動以提昇其專業地位。
 
地盤監督人員(即本學會界定為營造監工類別的會員)在建築施工流程中所擔當的角色極為重要,甚至是不可或缺。其職能除須確保建築工程符合施工細則、有關法例、合約規定,更重要的是要符合安全及環保的要求。然而,在建築施工層面上,這麽吃重的角色其專業地位尚未得到應有的尊重及認可,更沒有提供足夠的專業培訓助其專業發展。
 
有見及此,香港營造師學會認為現時在沒有政府立法監管的情況下,學會有需要自行制訂有關營造監工的註冊制度,以監管本港營造監工的註冊登記和管理及規範註冊營造監工的技術能力及專業資格的準則。
 
營造監工註冊制度將會建立一份營造監工註冊記錄冊,上載所有被評核為符合註冊規定所需的學歷、專業和實務工作經驗要求之營造監工。該記錄冊將公開供公眾查閱,以確定一個人是否勝任及現正從事營造監工的工作。
 
 

設立專業營造監工註冊制度

《營造監工註冊規例》(下稱〝本規例〞) 於2014年12月18日召開之會員周年大會上正式通過成為香港營造師學會有限公司章程之附例(並經2016年12月14日舉行之會員周年大會上修訂)以管理營造監工的註冊及對註冊營造監工專業操守的紀律管制及有關事宜訂定條文。

設立註冊制度的目的

建立營造監工註冊制度的目的是:
 
(a)
管理營造監工的註冊及規範註冊營造監工的專業活動、行為及紀律;
 
 
(b)
為營造監工提供一個確立專業認可和持續專業培訓及發展的平台;
 
 
(c)
通過制訂一套可識別的專業基準作為提供對營造監工勝任的信心;
 
 
(d)
提高建造施工過程中營造管理的水準。
