DIR 03/19 | Change of Perit in cases of Public Safety

Following the Extraordinary General Meeting of the Kamra tal-Periti held on Friday 21st June 2019, wherein it was unanimously agreed that public safety must be given priority over any other concern, the Kamra tal-Periti is hereby giving notice to all members of the profession of a directive that was also unanimously approved during said EGM.

Periti are hereby authorised to refuse to sign a Change of Architect Form in cases where they have submitted a report to the Building Regulation Office stating that the Developer qua owner/employer or the Contractor/mason have refused to follow their instructions on matters related to structural integrity. In line with the EGM’s decision, the Council of the Kamra tal-Periti will consider any actions by another Perit to take over the works concerned as constituting “supplanting” in terms of Provision 4 of the Code of Professional Conduct.

Periti are reminded that the Council of the Kamra tal-Periti is empowered to take appropriate action in terms of the Periti Act in case of breach of this Directive.
