The National Construction Industry Council (NCIC) would like to inform all Clients, Consultants, Contractors, Material Manufacturers, Material Suppliers, Professional Boards and Associations, Construction Stakeholders and the general public that following a disciplinary hearing NCIC conducted against Royal Associates Ltd, Royal Associates Ltd was found guilty of:
Issuing false statements or testimony contrary to General Rules of Practice 3(a) of the Code of Ethics for Consultants in the Construction Industry.
The Council, therefore, resolved to de-register Royal Associates Ltd and strike its name off-the register in accordance with Section 27 of the National Construction Industry Act, (Cap 53:05 of the Laws of Malawi) and in accordance with the National Construction Industry (Disciplinary) Rules, Cap 53:05 Sub.leg. p29. Royal Associates Ltd will, therefore, no longer be allowed to practice in the construction industry in Malawi effective 12th July 2022.
The Council wishes to advise all stakeholders that Section 20 of the NCI Act prohibits a person or firm not registered with the Council to carry on business in the construction industry and any person or firm that contravenes this provision commits an offence. Further, the Council is advising all stakeholders to take note of this development and ensure that they do not engage the services of Royal Associates Ltd as a Consultant in the construction industry in compliance with the NCI Act.
By order of the Council.
