UK-SPEC 4th Edition
All applicants for registration and membership of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers are assessed against the standards as defined by the Engineering Council (EngC) in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). The 4th edition of the UK-SPEC was published on 1 September 2020, for implementation across the sector by 31 December 2021. The 4th edition is available here, with a summary of the key changes.
We are in the process of transitioning to the 4th edition. There will be updates to our application/guidance documents and website over the next couple of months. Professional review interviews will not be available against the UK-SPEC 3 standards after 31 December 2021.
