We believe 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, we work with a number of institutions, organisations and companies. Collaboration can take the form of joint committees, projects and events
We support joint standing committees including the Hazards Forum, the Joint Institution Group on Safety Risk 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.
We also sponsor a number of engineering related associate parliamentary groups and works with the Campaign for Science and Engineering to promote engineering in public policy.
