The engineering profession speaking with one voice on key issues relating to engineering.
The IET believes that good public policy should be based on the best, evidence based advice available. We also recognise the need to make it as easy as possible for policymakers to find the best advice and for the engineering profession to “speak with one voice” on key issues. To this end, the IET works with a number of institutions, organisations and companies. Collaboration can take the form of joint committees, projects and events
The IET supports joint standing committees including the Hazards Forum, the Inter-Institutional Group on Health and Safety and the Independent Safety Assurance Group and works closely with the other engineering institutions in the Education for Engineering and the Engineering the Future alliances.
The IET sponsors a number of engineering related associate parliamentary groups and works with the Campaign for Science and Engineering to promote engineering in public policy.
