The Engineering Council’s Quality Assurance Committee (QAC) has agreed to suspend the licence for the Institute of Cast Metal Engineers (ICME), effective from 20 April 2018, further to issues relating to licensing requirements being identified at a review visit.
ICME has been asked to develop an action plan to resolve the issues raised and provide evidence that these have been addressed. This will be reviewed at the October QAC meeting.
While ICME’s licence is suspended, the Institute will not be able to assess candidates for registration.

The Engineering Council holds the national Register of Engineering Technicians (EngTech), Incorporated Engineers (IEng), Chartered Engineers (CEng) and Information and Communication Technology Technicians (ICTTech). It also sets and maintains the internationally recognised standards of competence and ethics that govern the award and retention of these titles. By this means it is able to ensure that employers, government and wider society, both at home and overseas, can have confidence in the skills and commitment of registrants.
