When I read EC webpage, it said that "The title CEng is protected by civil law...". My question is why IEng, EngTech and ICTTech is not protected by civil law?? In my opinion, all these 3 title should be protected by civil law as all 3 titles are equally important as CEng.

In addition to CEng, the other professional titles (IEng, EngTech and ICTTech) are also fully protected under law by means of the Engineering Council's Royal Charter and Bye-laws; further legislation is thus unnecessary. In order to protect these titles action is taken through the courts against their unauthorised use.

Further information can be found on the Engineering Council's website: http://www.engc.org.uk/statusofengineers.aspx

Dear Claire,
Fully agreed on your clarification, but it will be nice to include this description into EC webpage on IEng, EngTech and ICTTech which is is also protected, which I think will help to promote these titles as well.
