Council of Engineering Consultants of the Philippines
The Consulting Engineers Council of the Philippines (CECOP) was organized in October 1976. Nine local engineering firms doing consulting business in the Philippines constituted the founding members of the Council. A smaller group within CECOP was later formed, consisting only of members who were exclusively consultants and not at all engaged in construction. This paved the way for the group named, Council of Engineering Consultants of the Philippines (CECOPHIL), to become the official Philippine affiliate of the Fédération Internationale des Igénieurs Conseils (FIDIC).
