The Consiglio Nazionale Ingegneri (CNI - National Council of Engineers) is an association set up by public law for the purpose of overseeing the organisation of the engineering sector at a national level. It operates under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Justice. Its headquaters are in Rome.
The Consiglio Nazionale Ingegneri was founded in 1925 in accordance with law n.2537 of October 23, 1925. Today CNI is the legal representative of Italian engineers with institutional duties for the defence of the important interests of the entire profession. It plays an essential role in promoting, developing and intensifying engineering activity in order to increase the influence of this profession in the society at large.
As an institution, the CNI acts as a consultant to both Parliament and the Government on matters concerning the practice of the profession and, in general, engineering problems. The organisation carries out this duty by drawing up proposals of law or regulations concerning the engineering profession (Art. 14 D.L.T.N. n. 382, 1944).
