Dispute resolution service

What exactly is the President's List?

It’s a source of neutral engineers who are qualified to resolve disputes or to act as expert witnesses, arbitrators and adjudicators in all areas of electrical engineering (including ICT), and manufacturing. They never give legal advice or advice relating to employment or professional indemnity and the list itself isn’t published.

How to get appointed

To make this list you must:

  • be a Chartered Engineer and a Fellow of the IET
  • provide evidence of your competence, supported by a reference and recent example of your work.

If you want to be nominated as an adjudicator or arbitrator you must also be a corporate member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators or give evidence of education/training/competence that meets the same requirements.

After getting appointed you’ll need to provide yearly evidence to show that you’re still employed in your area of expertise.
