Entry in the list of structural engineers Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

As a person established in Germany as a structural engineer, an entry must be made in the list of structural engineers for certain structural installations, unless an entry in a corresponding list in another federal state has already been made.

In the case of construction measures within the meaning of the Lower Saxony Building Code (NBauO), the proof of stability is checked if the construction measure falls under the projects referred to in § 65 para. 3 sentence 1 NBauO. For the untested installation of the stability certificates, which do not need to be checked within the framework of § 65 sec. 2 sentence 1 no. 1, sec. 3 sentence 1 NBauO, it is necessary that the installer is entered in the list of structural engineers or is entered in a corresponding register in another country. The following structural facilities are included in the test exemption: residential buildings of building class 1-3, buildings up to 200 m² floor area; single-storey agricultural, forestry or commercial horticultural buildings with roof structures up to 6 m span, in the case of half-timbered roof trusses up to 20 m span.
