Provision of services by foreign companies that use the professional title "Consulting Engineer" in their name Advertisement
The use of the professional title "consulting engineer" in the name or in the company name of the company is protected in Niederachsen. A company that is neither entered in the list of companies of consulting engineers (if the company has its registered office in Lower Saxony) nor in the corresponding list in another federal state (if the company has its registered office in the other federal state) may use the professional title "consulting engineer" in Lower Saxony as an external company in its name or in its company, if it is registered in the register of foreign companies or in the corresponding directory in another federal state.
Foreign companies that are registered in the register of foreign companies must notify the Chamber of Engineers of their first activity in Lower Saxony.
If one year has passed since the last notification and the foreign company still intends to operate in Lower Saxony, it must notify the Chamber of Engineers.
The notification of the provision of services by external companies that use the professional title "Consulting Engineer" in their name must be submitted in writing or online using the form provided. The supporting documents mentioned under "Required documents" must be attached to the notification.
For both the first and the renewed action in Lower Saxony, it is sufficient that the foreign company notifies the action.
