Register of Professional Hydrogeologists / Historic Landfill
UPDATE/ Professional Hydrogeologists (April 2013):
Risk based Historical Landfill / Contaminated Lands Assessment.
The IGI has recently registered professionally competent and accredited hydrogeologists (Professional Geologist, PGeo, or equivalent international mutually recognised title, such as Chartered Geologist, CGeol (UK)), who have demonstrable experience and expertise to carry out risk-based hydrogeological assessments of historical landfill and contaminated lands sites.
The IGI has entered these experienced, professionally competent persons to the IGI Register of Professional Hydrogeologists for Historic Landfill/ Contaminated Lands Assessment (the ‘Register’), for whom IGI can certify the professional quality of their work.
The Register is now available on the IGI website <click here> and will be refreshed on a monthly basis through 2013, and on a quarterly basis thereafter, to allow new professionally ‘competent’ hydrogeologists (PGeo or mutually recognised equivalent) to join the Register progressively.
Each PGeo or equivalent on the Register will be issued formally with a letter stating that IGI has certified their competence in hydrogeological risk assessment of historical landfill etc, to assure any public or statutory bodies as to the professional and technical competence of the registered person.
IGI will not be in a position to deal with any insurance issues related to contractual matters between the contracting authority(s) and the professionally qualified person (PGeo) as contractor.
When assessed by IGI and subject to qualifying criteria, you may be entered to the next version of the Register.
For any other hydrogeologists (e.g. members of IAH) who are not professionally accredited through the Institute of Geologists of Ireland or equivalent, and who may be interested in joining the Register, please apply for IGI membership through the normal procedures as set out under the ‘Membership’ instructions on this website. Following accreditation, and subject to qualifying criteria, you may then be eligible for entry to the Register.
