There is no restriction on the use of "Electrical Engineer". This is because in the English language, the word "engineer" has a multiplicity of uses, and has never really been a professional title, or one denoting qualifications, such as "Doctor".
Only the titles "Chartered Engineer", "Incorporated Engineer", "Engineering Technician" etc. are reserved for use only by those who are registered at the right level with the Engineering Council. These titles are protected in law in the EU, and awarded in accordance with UK Royal Charter.
The title "Chartered Electrical Engineer" is also protected and reserved for the use (if they so wish) of people who were registered as such through the IEE before a certain date in 2002, who remain members or fellows of the IET, but it has not been awarded by IEE or IET since that time.
