Member route granted to all ECUK institutions

ICE news

THE ICE is broadening its member base to include all professional engineers and technicians from other built environment institutions licensed by the Engineering Council (ECUK).

Until now the Chartered Engineering Organisation (CEO) route to membership was limited to chartered and incorporated engineers of just eight institutions.

The move is part of the ICE's drive to widen its knowledge pool. Last month Council gave the go ahead for the ICE to join a newly-established Society for the Environment (ICE News last week).

To qualify, engineers must have at least two years post-qualification experience with an ECUK accredited organisation.

Similar rules to becoming chartered will apply as for ordinary ICE members, including a requirement to have attained a minimum of five days continuing professional development per annum over the past five years.

Under the new ruling, technician members of other built environment institutions would also be able to become TMICE.

The exemption and recognition panel consider applications six times a year. For more information see the ICE website.
