Improved professional qualification guidance for EU applicants

ICE has been providing a streamlined route to CEng MICE, IEng MICE or EngTech MICE to civil engineers who are already professionally qualified in another EU member state for many years. The right to recognition is determined by EU legislation on the recognition of professional qualifications which supports the free movement of professionals across the EU.

EU nationals who qualified directly with ICE are entitled to equivalent recognition to register in another EU member state. Learn more from the UK Centre for Professional Qualifications.

ICE continues to welcome applications from EU citizens for recognition of their professional qualifications following the UK referendum decision in June 2016 to leave the EU. The rights of citizens of EU member states for recognition of their professional qualifications in the UK will remain unchanged until negotiations to determine Britain's future relationship with the EU are progressed.

If you or colleagues are planning to apply to ICE for recognition, or you would like to check if you are eligible, our new webinar and revised guidance will answer many of your initial questions.

What are the changes?

  • Clearer guidance on how to check your eligibility and the evidence you need to provide from your home member state
  • More advice for EU-qualified graduate members who are already undertaking or planning to start an ICE training agreement
  • A Frequently Asked Questions section
  • All applicants will need to provide three supporting statements and update their diversity data in MyICE, in line with our equality and diversity aims
  • An improved and simplified application form checklist for submission documents
