KIVI and the Engineering Council, the UK regulatory body for the engineering profession mutually recognize Chartered Engineer, the quality brand for top engineers. An agreement for this was recently signed by Christopher Atkin, chairman of the Engineering Council, Alasdair Coates, Chief Executive Officer of the Engineering Council, Jacolien de Eijer-de Jong, president of KIVI and Miguel Delcour, director of KIVI.
The agreement means that an engineer who has obtained a Chartered Engineer registration (CEng or IEng) with KIVI can now transfer the registration to the UK and vice versa. This also applies to engineers who are admitted as KIVI’s Chartered Engineer via the Construction Register.
Miguel Delcour, director of KIVI says: “We are very pleased to have been able to sign this agreement …”
Engineers who have obtained professional registration in the jurisdiction of the country through a mutual recognition pathway, with exemptions from the usual assessment process, are not eligible for the admission pathways set forth in this agreement.
The Engineering Council was established in 1981 by Royal Charter to regulate the engineering profession in the United Kingdom. The council also sets and maintains internationally recognized standards for professional competence and dedication, including the UK-Spec from which the NLSpec is derived. The Engineering Council includes 39 Participating Authorities, such as ICE, IChemE and IMarEST.
