The first organization of geodetic engineers was the Asociacion de Agrimensore which was renamed Philippine Association of Surveyors and later Land Surveyors Association of the Philippines. The Geodetic Engineers of the Philippines (GEP) evolved from the integration of different surveying associations in 1965.
That same year, Republic Act No. 4374 otherwise known as the “Geodetic Engineering Law” was enacted. The GEP seeks to ensure that the Geodetic Engineering profession is composed of technically competent engineers with a high degree of integrity, moral standards and professionalism and at pace with modern geodetic engineering technologies.
The Society is the thirteenth accredited professional organization by the PRC, formally recognizing it on September 18, 1975.
In coordination with the PRC, the GEP was among the first to implement the Continuing Professional Education(CPE)program. Among the Society’s most notable accomplishments is its efforts leading to the amendment of the Geodetic Engineering Law on February 26, 1998.
