Following an agreement between the signatories of the Washington agreement to study the mutual recognition of engineers, representatives of the engineering profession met with observers of each of the signatories, appointed by the European Federation of National Engineers Associations (FEANI), in March 1996 and January 1997, with observers from the Japan Consulting Engineer Association. This agreement is not intended to restrict the rights of signatory organizations to enter into a bilateral or multilateral agreement with other organizations on conditions other than those relating to registration in the international register of engineers of the CEM. The signatories will therefore do their best to ensure that, in the economies in which they are entitled, the competent authorities use this agreement as the basis for concluding multilateral agreements or concluding bilateral agreements providing for the adoption of such streamlined procedures on the basis of reciprocity in the processing of the applications of registrants established in the economies concerned. In addition to nearly 2 million people who are also calling for a treaty, more than two-thirds of UN member states around the world have officially declared their readiness to consider the option of a new global agreement including the African, Caribbean, Nordic and Pacific and European Union states. In its guidelines, the CEM makes a clear statement in favour of representation at the level of the SE Board of Directors. He stressed the importance of making the best use of the negotiating period to reach an acceptable agreement on information, consultation and board participation. In these negotiations, the special negotiating body should always strive to achieve the highest possible level of participation. After their appointment, workers` representatives on the SE Board of Directors do not have a national mandate, but a European mandate. The EDF should be consulted and associated with the various stages of the procedure and appoint a trade union coordinator as a point of contact between the SE and the CEM. A comprehensive agreement setting global and binding targets, as well as national action plans and coherent measures are needed: the Engineers Mobility Forum (CEM) is the result of an agreement between the signatories of the Washington agreement to explore mutual recognition of experienced engineers.
The Washington Agreement, signed in 1989, recognizes the considerable equivalence of technical academic programs accredited by each signatory organization. Further negotiations and the signing of an agreement led to the opening of the International Register of Professional Engineers in 2001, with the opening of sections of the register by full members from the beginning of 2002. The aim of the CEM is to facilitate the international mobility of professional engineers. Establish a decentralized international register of professional engineers. Continue mutual supervision. Understand existing barriers to mobility and develop strategies to help governments and reception authorities overcome barriers. On the basis of the report, on 13 October, the major companies requested a UN treaty on plastic pollution to tackle the fragmented regulatory landscape and complement existing voluntary measures. The goal of the Mobility Forum Engineer (EMF) is to establish and maintain an international registry for professional engineers. The EMF agreement is a multinational agreement between engineering organizations in member countries, which sets the framework for defining an international standard of competence for professional engineering and then authorizes each member organization to create a section of the International Register of Professional Engineers.
