The lack of a clear definition about what constitutes a requirements engineer is problematic. Companies trying to establish clear RE responsibilities don't have clear standards on how to train their people, define the role, or choose the right people for the job. The Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering initiative (http://certified-re.de/en) has established a syllabus and a certification framework to improve this situation in industry.
