To whom this may concern,
I am a regisered Electrical Engineer by profession in the Philippnes.
In the Philippines, one has to be a registered professional electrical engineer (PEE) to be able to sign and stamped electrical plans (residential, commercial & industrical). I am not yet a professional electrical engineer.
Now that I got the CEng certification, is this equivalent to PEE?
Will I be allowed to sign and stamp similar documents using the CEng stamp in the Philippines?

CEng is not a license to practice in UK or any other country.
Allowed by law? it can create confusion as PEE is the only one who can sign as PEE.
You can sign as CEng but it will not be the same as PEE. You may even have a legal issue.
In my view REE is compared to UK IEng.
PEE is compared to CEng.
All REE in the long run will indeed make their way becoming a PEE's. As an REE
