Petition Action

Make engineering a protected trade

Additional Information

At present anyone can legally call themselves an engineer, even if they are a technician or a plumber. The term 'engineer' should be made into a protected trade, similar to doctors and accountants, so that only those who belong to a recognised body of engineers may call themselves engineers.
