Professional Registration Application Process

Are you preparing an application for professional registration?

UK-SPEC is changing
The Engineering Council has released a new version of UK-SPEC for all professional titles – CEng, IEng and EngTech – and the transition period closes this year. You can start to use the new version (black forms) straight away, for determination this year or beyond – but any applications on the current version (blue forms) must be assessed this year, which means submission no later than 1 November 2021.

The current version (blue forms) is no longer publicly available. If you will submit on or before 1 November 2021 and need to access any material for this version, please email your request to
We’ll be delighted to support you whenever you submit!
Do you Sponsor colleagues?
If you are or will act as a Sponsor for an applicant, please familiarise yourself with the new requirements.
