Policy Keys - email alerts

Email alerts for new consultations as they arise in your chosen areas of expertise. 

The Policy Department has made it easier for you to become involved in government consultations and make sure that your views are heard. We have created a number of "Policy Keys" which alert you to new consultations in your chosen area, as and when they arise. The keys are arranged in topic areas, divided up as follows:

  • Built Environment
  • Communications
  • Education
  • Energy
  • Future of Science and Engineering in the UK
  • Health and Safety
  • Information Technology
  • Manufacturing
  • Northern Ireland affairs
  • Research and Innovation
  • Scottish affairs
  • Transport
  • Welsh affairs

Please note that these are broad headings and cover all aspects of each subject. In particular, the Welsh affairs policy key will cover topics related to devolved Welsh policy e.g. transport, education etc. A consultation may impinge on more than one Policy Key topic area. In this case all relevant topic areas will be notified, so you may receive more than one message if you registered for more than one topic area.  

To make use of this service, all you need to do is visit "My IET" - you will have to log in first), select the "Interests" and then "Newletters". Under the "Government Consultations" tab select which sectors (ranging from built environment to welsh affairs) that interest you.  You will then receive email messages alerting you to consultations in those sectors and be invited to contribute to the IET's submission.  Please note you will not be sent a confirmation email upon registering.

You have to be registered with the website (i.e. have a website login name) to use this facility. Registration is free. 

Contributions to IET submission can only be accepted from IET members.
