Testing experts for earthwork and foundation engineering - apply for recognition

Service Description

Testing experts for earthwork and foundation engineering check and certify the completeness and correctness of the information on the building ground with regard to material composition, structure and geological influences, its load-bearing capacity and the assumptions made for the foundation or embedding of the building structure. This is done on behalf of the client or other responsible parties according to the building code. Within the scope of their testing tasks, the testing experts are independent and not bound by the instructions of the client.

Recognition as a testing expert for earthwork and foundation engineering is only granted to applicants who fulfill and can prove that they meet the general requirements as well as the special requirements for this field. In addition to proof of a suitable university degree and sufficiently long professional and testing experience, a specialist assessment is carried out, which includes an assessment of subsoil reports and a written proof of knowledge.
