On behalf of the profession, the IET strives to inform and influence government on a wide range of engineering and technological issues. The organisation’s membership spans a broad range of professional knowledge, and regularly offers unbiased, independent, evidence-based advice to policymakers via several channels. We believe that professional guidance, especially in highly technological areas, is critical to good policy-making.
As well as utilising the expertise of its volunteer-led panels to respond to policy developments, the IET frequently invites and encourages its wider membership to contribute towards government consultations, and we highly value our ongoing collaborations with other Professional Engineering Institutions (PEI’s) and high-profile science and technology organisations on policy matters.
