Guidance on how to re-instate your professional registration qualifications.

New Engineering Council (EngC) regulations now state that any registered engineers who have lapsed their membership of a professional body, between a period of 1-3 years, will need to provide additional CPD evidence at the point of re-joining.

If you were a member of the IET and wish to re-join, visit our membership re-join page.
