Becoming Professionally Registred

Professional Registration is your personal benchmark of commitment to a professional approach to working with explosives. To quote from the Engineering Council’s UK-SPEC:

“Professional registration underpins the systems and processes that ensure the current and future safeguarding of society. It provides employers, government and society, in the UK and overseas, with the confidence that professionally registered engineers and technicians possess and maintain the knowledge, skills and commitment required to meet the engineering and technological needs of today, whilst also catering for the needs of future generations.

Registration sets individual professionals apart from engineers and technicians who are not registered. It establishes their proven knowledge, understanding and competence. In particular, registration demonstrates a commitment to professional standards, and to developing and enhancing competence.”

Your journey towards Professional Registration begins with understanding the route available and the standards against which you will be measured. Information regarding the registration criteria that are assessed throughout the application process can be found in UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK) Spec by the Engineering Council.

The fourth edition of the UK-SPEC was published on 31st August 2020 and will be fully implemented by 31st December 2021.

IMPORTANT:

If you intent to apply for Professional Registration during 2021 please note the following:-
