40 years of regulating the UK Engineering Profession

This week marks the Engineering Council’s 40th year of setting and maintaining standards, to ensure that society continues to have confidence and trust in the engineering profession.

CEO Alasdair Coates: “Voluntary regulation is important because standards matter – the public has a right to expect engineers, who do so much to shape our world, to be able to demonstrate their competence and behave in an ethical, sustainable way.”

There are currently over quarter of a million professionally registered engineers and technicians on the Engineering Council’s Register, who have all committed to maintaining and developing their knowledge throughout their careers: 

The Engineering Council’s mission as a regulator is to maintain internationally recognised standards of competence and commitment for the engineering profession and to license competent institutions to champion those standards to deliver public benefit. 

As the importance of competence becomes increasingly clear in all areas of life – standards matter. We look forward to continuing to deliver public benefit by setting and maintaining standards:
