Western Cape Property Development Forum (WCPDF) – Virtual in Conversation Series – EVENT 3: PROFESSIONAL SELF-CERTIFICATION BY BUILT ENVIRONMENT PROFESSIONALS

October 15, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Western Cape Property Development Forum (WCPDF)

Virtual In Conversation Series

What does the future look like for Property Development?

The WCPDF presents a series of important conversations with leading authorities in both the public and private sectors towards re-activating the economy and to debate what the new ways of doing business can be.

Each virtual session will kick off with a short scene-setting introduction by a prominent keynote speaker, before an industry specialist facilitator invites a relevant panel of experts to engage with the speaker, before throwing the floor open to delegates attending the session online .

While the Western Cape is at the heart of the focus group for this series, the conversations hold enormous relevance for the property development and construction sectors across the entire South African economy and beyond our own borders.

The series is aimed at developers, consultants, contractors, financial and banking representatives, and the diverse public sector in which government officials and politicians play critical roles.

It will be brought to industry via a highly interactive virtual event experience platform that turns sponsors, speakers and delegates into active and engaged participants from the moment they register until well after the event has ended. In other words, this is not your average webinar series.

EVENT 3: THURSDAY 15 OCTOBER 2020 | 14h00 – 16h00


In conversation with Rudolf Opperman

Rudolf Opperman (NRCS – National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications) will set the background for this conversation by exploring the following themes:

  • What does self-certification by built environment professionals such as Architects entail, and does this happen internationally?
  • Do developers trust their consultants enough to self-certify?
  • What are the risks of self-certification and how can they be mitigated?
  • Can government move from gatekeeper to auditor and educator?
  • What regulatory policy framework needs to be in place to allow for self-certification?

(Industry specialist to be confirmed) will be facilitating the event and session panellists, (industry specialists to be confirmed), will further engage with Rudolf with input from delegates, both before and during the event.
