Professional Persons Environmental Consultative Committee Practice Notes (ProPECCPNs)

Professional Persons Environmental Consultative Committee Practice Notes (ProPECCPNs)

The Professional Persons Environmental Consultative Committee (ProPECC) was set up in October 1991, to provide a forum for the exchange of views on all environmental matters related to the duties and practice of architects, engineers, planners, surveyors and developers.

ProPECC is chaired by the Director of Environmental Protection. It consists of representatives from The Hong Kong Construction Association (HKCA), The Hong Kong Institute of Architects (HKIA), Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE), The Hong Kong Institute of Planners (HKIP), The Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors (HKIS), and The Real Estate Developers Association of Hong Kong (REDA).

A wide range of issues has been examined by the committee and in some cases this has led to the publication of a ProPECC Practice Note (PN) which has been widely distributed to professionals and organizations in relevant fields. So far the following ProPECC PNs have been issued:
