Agreement designed to improve the status of Russian engineers in the world was singed in London

Two agreements designed to raise the status of Russian engineers both at home and abroad, as well as to increase capitalization of Russian public companies, were signed at the Russian embassy in London on Thursday. The documents were signed by the rector of St. Petersburg Mining University, Vladimir Litvinenko, and the executive director of the oldest and one of the most authoritative associations in Western Europe, the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) Colin Church.

According to the terms of the second contract, the British miners will transfer to their Russian colleagues an exclusive authority to accredit specialists of mineral resources companies to the status of "Professional Engineer" and "Privileged Engineer". Thus, experts of the National Association of Mining Engineers, which includes associations of miners, builders, chemists, geologists, and employees in the oil and gas industry, will be able to engage in international certification and professional registration of competent specialists of raw materials companies through IOM3 license.
