  • Nuclear Institute (NI)
  • Institution of Lighting Professionals (ILP)
  • Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE)
  • Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CIPHE)
  • Institution of Railway Signal Engineers (IRSE).

In addition, the Committee has approved interim reviews for:

  • Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM)
  • Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS)
  • Energy Institute (EI)
  • British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT).

The Committee has also re-approved the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) as a Professional Affiliate of the Engineering Council.
