Engineering Council 2021 registration fees frozen

Published: 13/08/2020

Engineering Council logoEngineering Council registration fees will be frozen for 2021, with no increase from 2020.

Mindful of the significant economic pressures on companies and registrants, the Engineering Council and EngineeringUK have agreed an approach to manage both organisations with the same combined fee income as 2020. This means the fee structure remains unchanged, with reduced annual fees available for registrants experiencing financial hardship:  

The annual registration fees from Chartered Engineers (CEng), Incorporated Engineers (IEng), Engineering Technicians (EngTech) and ICT Technicians (ICTTech) allow the Engineering Council and EngineeringUK to ensure quality in the profession today and invest in its future for tomorrow.

Professional registration fees fund the Engineering Council in its role as the regulatory body for the UK engineering profession. This includes setting and maintaining internationally recognised standards of professional competence and commitment, as well as managing the national register of over 230,000 engineers and technicians who have been assessed against these standards and achieved professional registration. The focus of the Engineering Council’s current Strategic Plan is to provide public benefit, maintain a globally recognised standard and meet the future needs of its stakeholders.

These fees paid by individual engineers also help fund the activity of EngineeringUK, whose ambition is to inform and inspire young people and grow the number and diversity of tomorrow’s engineers.

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. For more information visit:
