The DataFlow Group welcomes the new mandatory Oman Society of Engineers membership for engineers in Oman, which includes primary source verification (PSV) in order to maintain engineering excellence and promote the safety of both their members and the general public.
On 28 Nov 2022 the Ministry of Labor, Oman announced that all engineers living and working in the Sultanate of Oman are required to have an OSE membership in order to practise their profession. A mandatory part of this membership for engineers is primary source verification (PSV). PSV is the most evolved methodology for determining the accuracy of professional documentation – in this case, academic qualifications and experience certificates, specifically for those who hold academic and / or experience certificates from other countries outside of Oman.
By mandating this requirement, which was initiated by the Ministry of Labour, the OSE is helping to protect entire communities within Oman including its members, their colleagues and the general public. This level of safeguarding is achieved by ensuring that only qualified engineering professionals can secure employment within Oman, helping to further engineering excellence within the nation.
Sunil Kumar, CEO of the DataFlow Group, shares, “As existing partners of the Oman Society of Engineers since 2016, we are delighted that OSE membership has become mandatory within the region. As experts in PSV, we applaud this move within the engineering industry in Oman in order to promote and maintain safety within a typically high-risk sector. By doing so, not only are OSE helping to ensure that only highly qualified engineers work within the region, but they are also protecting the safety of the general public. We look forward to continuing to work alongside OSE as one of their official PSV partners to help them to continue sustained excellence within the country.’’
Upholding this level of professional quality sets a high standard for engineering expertise within Oman which is aligned with the country’s ongoing growth plans.
