Engineers Ireland launches new regulations for Chartered Engineers

24 September 2013 at 12:22

Engineers Ireland members are being urged to familiarise themselves with new regulations for the registered professional title of Chartered Engineer, which were launched earlier today. The new regulations provide clarity on the formation of a Chartered Engineer to both candidates who hold the title and those considering applying for it in the future.

Engineers considering applying for the registered professional title must be familiar with these regulations which detail the professional development framework expected of Chartered Engineers. This framework, alongside those for Associate Engineers and Engineering Technicians, is recognised internationally as best practice for the development of the knowledge, skills and attitudes required for professional engineers practicing today.

Further to this, it is essential that Chartered Engineers remain informed of this competence framework as part of their ongoing commitment to maintain their competence through CPD and through adherence to the professions code of conduct.

Over the coming months, Engineers Ireland will provide guidance notes to support candidates preparing for the title under the new regulations and a new e-application process will be launched in February 2014. The first applications under the regulations will be invited for submission in June 2014.

Anyone who holds the educational standard for a Chartered Engineer and is currently preparing an application under the current regulations should note the last deadline for submission is the 31st January 2014.
