Institute of Refrigeration

CIBSE and The Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) hold a registration agreement whereby members of the IOR can obtain Engineering Council Registration via CIBSE.

Process for IOR applicants

Check your qualifications to determine your route to registration. You can do this on our Qualification Assessment page.

  • If you hold Chartered Engineer (CEng) level qualifications you will be able to apply for CEng registration via the application form below.  
  • If you do not hold the required qualifications you will demonstrate your technical knowledge by taking our Technical Report Route. Your first step is to submit a synopsis of your proposed report. You will submit a Technical Report and Engineering Practice Report and be invited to interview.

Ensure that you review our CEng/Member level competence criteria as you will be required for both routes to submit an Engineering Practice Report demonstrating how you meet these competences.

  • Eligibility
