The IIOM Professional Standards and Membership Committee is working closely with the UK Engineering Council to ensure that the Framework complies with the requirements of their UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence. This sets out the competence and commitment required for registration as an Engineering Technician (EngTech), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng).
It is envisaged that, in due course, members who have achieved the membership grades of Associate (AIIOM), Member (MIIOM), or Fellow (FIIOM) will be able to register with UK EC at the corresponding level. This possibility will be available to all members of IIOM regardless of affiliation to a specific Chapter.
