Specially tailored frequently asked questions on professional registration.
Why do I have to pay a qualified and registered members fee?
If I get qualified as CEng, IEng or EngTech after I have paid for that year’s membership fee then when will I be asked to pay the qualified and registered members' fee?
Do I still have to pay the qualified and registered members' fee if I'm registered with another institution?
Can I continue to use the title Chartered Electrical Engineer?
The levy funds the work we have to do to maintain our Engineering Council licence, and therefore our ability to continue to award CEng, IEng and EngTech. It also contributes to the costs of processing applications for registration and fellowship, as the application fee only goes part way to meeting these costs.
If you have already paid for that year's membership, then your qualified and registered members' fee will be rolled over to be paid the following year.
Yes. The qualified and registered members' fee is applicable to all members that are registered as CEng, IEng, EngTech or CEE (Chartered Electrical Engineers) even if you are registered with another Institution.
Every member of the IET who prior to 6th June 2002 was entitled to use the title of Chartered Electrical Engineer may continue to use this title for as long as they remain a member of the IET.
