The Engineering Council is currently carrying out our five-yearly Standards Review, and would very much welcome our views. The review includes the requirements for registration as a professional engineer or technician, along with the rules and guidelines for carrying out registration and the processes that support it. 

They want to hear from anyone who has an interest in the content of the Standards or how they work. This includes people affected by the Standards, such as prospective registrants and engineering employers, as well as ‘users’ of the Standards documents such as the professional engineering institutions and education providers.

You are invited to answer any or all of the questions, which are split into sections to make them easier to navigate:

  •      Key Principles
  •      The UK Standard for Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC)
  •      Accreditation of higher education programmes
  •      Approval of qualifications and apprenticeships
  •      Proposals for the recognition of higher apprenticeships

Your responses will help shape the future of standards for professional engineers and we encourage you to share the consultation with colleagues or contacts who may be interested in responding. A summary of responses will be published after the closing date.

The consultation is available at www.engc.org.uk/consultations and will close at midnight on 24 October 2018
