CEng Additional Evidence Required

Hi everyone, 

I wanted to have your with the ongoing review process of my application with the IET.

I submitted my application in May 2023, verified by three supporters. In August, I received a request for Further Evidence, specifically related to competencies A and B in the self-assessment section. In response, I submitted five new case studies, each tailored to address competencies A1, A2, B1, B2, and B3.

Recently, I received another communication from the IET, which posed several detailed questions seeking additional insights into my skills and knowledge. I have prepared my responses, but I find these queries somewhat repetitive, considering the comprehensive details about my professional roles are outlined in my CV, which has been shared with them.

The questions are as follows:

  1. Have you cited as a principal contractor role, and if so, can you explain about this specific role and who signed off your work?  
  2. As you have acted as a main contractor, have you done any detailed design for a contractor to the build against it, or is the design work you do conceptual? (i.e. the contractor works up the detailed design, and if so who signs off your work?)  
  3. Have you done conceptual design on behalf of a client, and if so, who signed off your work?  
  4. Can you provide a detailed short circuit and load flow analysis and generator sizing calculations? Did you do any protection settings as well as an earthing study?

Note: I have not worked as a principal contractor. However, I functioned as the main designer representing the principal contractor. And this was clearly indicated in my CV and my originally submitted application.

I have prepared a detailed response that I can share with anyone willing to review to ensure it adequately addresses the IET's queries.

Moreover, if you have any general recommendations that could be beneficial at this stage, I would appreciate to discuss them further.



  • Referring your questions above, seemed registration review process would like you to provide someone or profession who is experienced and capable to check and supervising your design work. If you did not mention D&B contract you used, main contractor is only responsible for the "Build" as traditional contract is separating "Design" and "Build". 

    it came to my concern that "I functioned as the main designer representing the principal contractor", but who verified your design within standard and quality and fit for purpose? i think you may need more clarification on this point. 

    i also got this question when i was applying registration few years ago.

    For your question 4, i am not really sure if generator was essential power supply, any protective device or alarm had to installation, or auto change-over with normal power supply. you know, the load estimation relating to the fuel storage, tank size and alarm setting for low level, required you to conclude all the facilities and equipment power consumption with period it needs to last for.

    Good Luck Bro

  • Thanks a lot Tsang!
