Bureau of Engineer Surveyors

The Bureau of Engineer Surveyors was established in 1971 as a specialist organisation for Engineer Surveyors to keep up-to-date with relevant technical information.

With regulatory pressures being introduced on a seemingly endless and increasing basis, BES has never enjoyed a more important role.

Engineer Surveyors independently assess plant and machinery for legal compliance and technical risk. Whilst an Engineer Surveyor’s employer will ensure that he or she has the necessary knowledge to complete tasks, membership of the BES assists in enhancing their competency. BES keeps members up to date with upcoming changes to legislation and hosts regular events enabling Engineer Surveyors to meet and network with like-minded professionals.

BES members receive a monthly journal, Operations Engineer. Operations Engineer was launched in November 2018 to build on the heritage of Plant Engineer magazine, which has for more than 70 years been a key source information for engineers and technicians.

The BES regions form a very active network and host a range of technical seminars and events throughout the year.

Although BES members are predominantly Engineer Surveyors, this Professional Sector is also of interest to building services engineers, technical health and safety professionals and those involved in engineering facilities.
