Find out more about how to engage an EtC from our Panel.

Pilot phase

We are currently in the Panel’s pilot phase. The first round of appointments has been made to the Panel, with view to scaling up gradually .

The pilot phase is an opportunity to test and refine the Panel’s processes in preparation for scaling up activities later in 2022. During the pilot phase, Panel members will help develop resources to support EtCs in the role.

We were not able to accept applications from all interested applicants for the pilot phase. There will be future opportunities to apply to join the Panel after the pilot phase and we encourage you to apply again if you were not successful in the initial round. We will advertise on this website and through other industry channels when applications open again.

Accountability

The Steering Group has developed a Code of Ethics for Panel members. This set of expectations applies to the Panel member’s performance of the role of EtC. Each Panel member has acknowledged and committed to complying with this Code of Ethics.

If the Panel Coordinator is informed or becomes aware of any issues or circumstances that may affect a Panel member’s continued eligibility to be a recognised Panel member, the Steering Group may review the member’s eligibility to remain on the Panel. Reviews will be conducted by the Steering Group and would assess whether the Panel member continued to meet the criteria for eligibility. The member would have an opportunity to respond and provide further information. If the review determined the member did not meet the criteria, they may be removed from the Panel (but may re-apply in the future).

Background

The establishment of this Panel is part of Engineering New Zealand’s contribution to the Construction Sector Accord. (This Panel is separate and distinct from the National Supplier Panel for Engineer to Contract by Kāinga Ora Homes and Communities and Engineer to Contract Accreditation by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency.)

What is the role of the Panel?

The Panel supports the independence and success of the EtC role by:

  • providing clarification on who can perform the role
  • setting the standard for those undertaking the role
  • providing mentorship and support as needed.

What is the purpose of the Panel? 

The Panel provides the public with a list of recognised EtCs for contractual purposes. The Panel also sets a benchmark for EtCs to perform in the building and construction sector. All parties – including contractors, principals, EtCs and others – will benefit from knowing who has been recognised as capable of fulfilling the duties of the role for their building and construction projects.
