Inita is an association of engineering specialists that we are proud to be are part of. The organisation is committed to providing focused statutory compliance examination, testing and consultancy services, designed to improve both standards of engineering plant maintenance, and safety in the workplace.
The association is currently made up of 25 members (companies) that are rigorously scrutinized for access to membership. We must be able to demonstrate sufficient engineering knowledge, experience and qualifications, in order to be deemed competent in the eyes of the HSE to practice in the engineering inspection industry.
SOE works to advance Operations Engineering for the benefit of everyone through education, training, study and research. SOE also establishes and maintains standards of competence and conduct for those engaged in Operations Engineering professionally, with an emphasis on enhancing public safety. Through its Professional Sectors of IRTE, IPlantE and BES, SOE directly influences the road transport, plant and engineer surveying sectors, developing best practice and improving compliance across the board.
