Professional engineers and engineering technicians who are registered with the Engineering Council can be recognised across the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) under Directive 2005/36: Recognition of Professional Qualifications (as amended by Directive 2013/55).
The Engineering Council is the UK National Member of the European Federation of National Engineering Associations (FEANI). If you are a Chartered Engineer in the UK, you can apply for EUR ING registration. If you are professionally registered in another European country, you should contact the FEANI National Member for that country for information about how to apply.
All applications for EUR ING registration are assessed by FEANI’s European Monitoring Committee (EMC). This meets four times a year. The assessment process may take up to six months, or longer if your application is incomplete or the EMC requests further information.
EUR ING registration recognises a combination of education, training and experience amounting to a minimum of seven years. Competence based routes are also recognised
EUR ING registrants are entitled to use the title EUR ING in front of their name eg EUR ING J Smith CEng.
