Scandinavian Infrastructure Competence is a large competence project managed by the Swedish Transport Administration, the Norwegian Public Roads Administration and the Norwegian Rail Administration.

During the period 2012–2014, the competence requirements  set by procurers in the construction industry are to be reviewed. The objective is to  take a step towards a joint Scandinavian set of requirements, which will also form the basis for a model for certification and management of the requirements.

The project shall map and safeguard the procurers’ requirements for supplier competence for critical work during execution. This means requirements for competences set by the procurer over and above professional competence on the part of the executor. This relates, for example, to safety work and competence within environmental issues as well as attitude and behaviour.

In the longer term, the project shall contribute to cross-border cooperation between suppliers, consultants and contractors, create greater attraction for the industry and provide greater utility from the money invested.
