  • If one year has passed since the last notification and the service provider intends to continue to provide services in Lower Saxony and to use the professional title "Consulting Engineer", he or she must notify the Chamber of Engineers of this. If the situation certified in the documents submitted so far has changed significantly, the service provider must report this by presenting the corresponding documents.
  • If significant differences in professional qualifications are found in a degree from an EU member state, these can be cured by compensatory measures.
