For the latest advice and information on the new rules for citizens and businesses from 1 January 2021, please visit gov.uk/transition and the Engineering Council Brexit Transition webpage.
In line with these new rules, ICE will only accept applications for the recognition of EU professional qualifications in line with our current guidance until 31 December 2020.
If you have already started to prepare your application in line with this guidance, please ensure you submit it by 11pm on 31 December 2020. If you miss this deadline, please contact [email protected] for advice before proceeding, with your MyICE account number and a summary of what information you have already prepared.
After 1 January 2021, we will continue to welcome applications for recognition of EEA or Swiss qualifications in line with the new UK legislation. The new route will significantly simplify the initial application and will compare the level, content and scope of your qualification to the level, content and scope of ICE’s protected titles. The new application form and guidance will be downloadable from this webpage as soon as they are available.
