Engineering Council announces new Licensed Member and new Professional Affiliate

Published: 21/01/2020

The Engineering CouncilEngineering Council logo is pleased to announce the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE) receiving approval to become a new Licensed Member of the Engineering Council (having previously held Professional Affiliate status) and assess their members for professional registration.

The Engineering Council is also pleased to announce The Institute of Traffic Accident Investigators (ITAI) receiving approval to become a Professional Affiliate.

Professional Affiliates are professional engineering institutions closely associated with the Engineering Council. They are influential and work to further the knowledge and understanding of a particular area or aspect of engineering and technology. In addition to having access to key Engineering Council guidance, Professional Affiliates are also able to provide a pathway to professional registration for their members through setting up an agreement with a Licensed Member. A registration agreement has been approved between ITAI and the Institute of Highways Engineers (IHE).

Engineering Council CEO Alasdair Coates said “The Engineering Council’s vision is to maintain society’s confidence and trust in the engineering profession. We achieve this through working with partners across the professional engineering community and are pleased to see CABE achieving those standards expected of a Licensed Member and ITAI becoming associated with the Engineering Council, offering a route to professional engineering registration titles for its members”.

Details of all current Professional Affiliates and licensed professional engineering institutions can be found on our website.
