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 CEng level qualifications you will be able to apply for CEng via the application link 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 - you will be required for both routes to submit an Engineering Practice Report demonstrating how you meet these competences.
