Guidance on how to re-join the IET or re-instate your professional registration qualifications.
If you were a previous member of the IET, or the former IEE or IIE, and your membership has expired, it is easy to re-join one of the largest professional science, engineering and technology organisations in the world.
If your IET membership has been expired for less than three years, contact the Member and Customer Service Centre and we will re-instate you over the phone.

Alternatively, complete the appropriate re-joining application form below:
Application forms should be posted to the following address:
Wherever possible, please quote your previous membership number with any correspondence or payment. This will ensure your application to re-join is dealt with promptly.
Please note: If your membership has been expired for more than three years your membership cannot be re-instated over the phone. You must re-apply to join the IET, as if you are a new member, and meet the current requirements for membership.
To retain your professional registration status you will also need to backdate your Engineering Council fees to the year following your last payment, in addition to your current year. If you have allowed your Engineering Council registration to lapse for more than three years you will be required to demonstrate your competence through a Professional Review including completion of an application form and attendance at an interview. Please download the relevant form from the website.
The table below states the Engineering Council fee amount in total that you need to pay depending on when your registration lapsed. If you are unsure when you last paid, please call our Member and Customer Service Team on +44 (0)1438 765678.
