It is worth bearing in mind that...

...on account of our reference portfolio, the Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development, Transport and Housing has granted SCP all five accreditations for the management and inspection of dikes and dams. Since 29 March 2011, SCP has been authorised to design dikes and dams of all classes, supervise their construction in the capacity of Project manager, and handle all statutory procedures.
