SER Certification

JSE provides SER Certification to all projects. Jacek Sikora has been a member of the scheme as Approved Certifier of Design since 2021.

Structural Engineers Registration Ltd (SER) is a trading subsidiary of The Institution of Structural Engineers and was formed in 2004, with the support of The Institution of Civil Engineers, to provide and manage registration schemes for the certification of design of building structures.

The Scheme was established as a result of a joint initiative by the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE)and the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). This initiative was driven by legislation introduced in Scotland – the Building (Scotland) Act 2003.

The Act encourages a holistic overview of the design of any building project by enabling an engineer who is a member of the Scheme as an Approved Certifier of Design (Building Structures) to certify the structural design of buildings in Scotland and to include a certificate with the application to Local Authorities for Building Warrant.

The certifying engineer is responsible for ensuring that all aspects of design of the structure of a project satisfy the requirements of the Building (Scotland) Regulations 2004. The legislation also makes engineers who are responsible for building structures specifically aware of their responsibilities and duties in the design, thus improving assurance of structural safety.
