The Engineering Council has published new editions of its internationally-recognised standards of professional competence and commitment.
This follows the completion of the Engineering Council’s five-yearly Standards Review process, a wide-ranging consultation with stakeholders, including registrants, professional engineering institutions (PEIs), employers, education providers and the general public.
The revised standards documents are as follows:
- The UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence and Commitment (UK-SPEC)
- Accreditation and Approval of Qualifications and Apprenticeships (AAQA) (replacing the Approval of Qualifications and Apprenticeships Handbook (AQAH))
- Accreditation of Higher Education Programmes (AHEP)
- Registration Code of Practice (RCoP), which sets out the regulations for registration.
