New designatory letters for technician members

ice hq

The ICE’s technician members can now use the MICE post-nominal letters instead of TMICE, following formal approval of an earlier member ballot.

Earlier this year ICE members voted in favour of a proposed change to ICE’s Royal Charter to allow the change in designatory letters for technician members. Privy Council has now formally approved the move. 

This means technician members can now use the MICE designation, complementing registration with the Engineering Council as EngTech. For example Engineering Technician Mary Smith’s post-nominal letters have changed from “Mary Smith EngTech TMICE” to ‘Mary Smith EngTech MICE’.

There is no change in post-nominal letters for other grades of ICE membership. Chartered and incorporated members continue to use MICE, alongside their IEng or CEng Engineering Council qualification. MICE is now the marque for all qualified civil engineering professionals.

ICE members also voted on a number of other resolutions as part of ICE’s 2015 Council Ballot.

The approved changes to the Admission and Disciplinary Regulations came into effect when the ballot closed on the 14 July 2015. Changes to the by-laws were subject to Privy Council approval and these have now also been ratified.
