In November 2004 the Nordic Council of Ministers together with the Nordic countries, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland decided to initiate a collaboration by approving an action plan for improved co-operation between the countries concerned in the area of construction and building. The co-operation will take place through the following activities: to make market information and information on national regulations accessible to potential actors on the market to expand the basis of experience and new found knowledge in housing construction to undertake a comparative analysis of regulations within the building sector intended to serve as a basis for deliberations on possible harmonization to make it possible to compare competency requirements imposed on certain actors in the building process, and - to establish a network for joint research and development on issues relevant to the plan of action This report describes results of the second stage of a project devoted to promoting increased transparency of procedures for recognition of regulates professions in the Building Sector, particularly making national systems easier to manage and more clear, quick and friendly to use, improving transparency of qualifications to ensure that customers can rely on a more comprehensive service.




This questionnaire is the first step towards execution of the Project and it is intended to review information already obtained in the framework of the Project’s first stage (see the Report “Validation of competency requirements imposed on certain actors in the building process“). The goal of this review is to exploit the information collected during the first stage study as much as possible. Presumably, results of the review would disclose deficiencies or insufficiency of information, lack of perceptibility. But even such result would be considered as assistance — a lesson how to improve performance at the next stage. Therefore, members of the Working Group are invited to update information in accordance with the current situation and latest developments, where appropriate. Exchange of information for this particular project is also proposed by means of an inquiry and the whole range of interests is divided in several constituents forming the questionnaire.
