Construction, civil engineering & infrastructure law

The legal framework for construction, civil engineering & infrastructure law in Cameroon is very vast, cutting across WTO laws relating to technical barriers to trade, national and international standardisation, consumer protection law, environmental law, building and construction permit regulations, laws regulating the profession of civil engineer and laws on public procurement and government contracting. The legal framework touches on multiple sectors such as agriculture, agro-industry, building, construction, engineering, building materials, energy sector, industries, mines, ICT sector, health, automotive sector, road transport, railway, environmental impact studies, real estate development, etc.
The International Standardisation Organisation (ISO), the African Regional Standardisation Organisation as well as the National Standards & Quality Agency (ANOR) have a plethora of building & constructions standards which all building and construction works must comply with, in addition to the abovementioned rules and laws. These standards cut across all sorts of construction and construction related works including architecture and building, technical project management rules for infrastructural projects, social housing standards laws, PPP laws, public & government contract rules, mortar & building materials, industries, oil & gas, electricity & electrical engineering, renewable energy, metalworks, metallurgy, steel industry, extractive industries, criteria of evaluation of compliance of cement, cement specification, concrete, steel, aluminium, etc.
