This Society is being absorbed by the IET
The Society of Engineers-IET
A brief history of the Society of Engineers, which was absorbed by the IIE in 2005.
This should be determined by the IET according to their Qualifications and relevant Professional Experience . But the real problem will be : what about the SPEng Members and Fellows who are at the same time already Members of the IET , that is , PEng MIET and PEng (UK) MIET ?! They will become twice MIETs ...?!
SPEng also in the process to be de-register. The reason why they come to this stage because they don't have enough members to sustain the organisation.
I just got Fellow from SPEng last year but this year received this bad news from SPEng. I feel very sad..... Bye Bye my post nominal "PEng(UK) FSPE"
A quick web map search shows its former Head Office as a shed behind a farm in rural Essex. It may have had some legal legitimacy but clearly not much credibility. Please exercise due diligence when seeking qualifications or other forms of recognition.
Arjuna , CABE is affiliated to Engineering Council . https://www.engc.org.uk/news/press-releases/pr2017/promoting-professional-registration/ and offers its own “Chartered Building Engineer” recognition which is not aligned to UK-SPEC CEng. Although Engineering Council affiliation offers no guarantee of a body’s financial stability, it offers at least some reassurance about recognition.
I don’t know if the address is just coincidence , but someone will. I only posted to share what I had been told by a reputable source. I’m sorry if Yung or anyone else has suffered any loss.
Society of Professional Engineers (UK and International)
They have now become the Institution of International Professional Engineers (IIPE) but they will continue to keep the title PEng,MSPE/FSPE(International). The new title MIIPE/FIIPE can also be claimed by MSPE and FSPE themselves as well..
They also state:
"We are not required to get the permission from any government because we are International Professional Engineers Organization. "
Speaking personally, assuming that the motives of those involved are honest and honourable, then I see no fundamental reason why a group of professional people should not choose to collaborate in recognising each other and inviting others to join in.
The model being adopted is based on UK professional or "learned society" principles, but being unregulated, could easily be used to mislead by someone with less than honourable motives. I'm a frequent critic of some aspects of Engineering Council policy and it is obvious from the extent of voluntary participation that the proposition it sets out using UK-SPEC, serves some practitioners considerably better than others, but it is a proper regulator. Similar issues arise in other countries.
I hope to attend a talk this evening organised by a club of Railway enthusiasts that I joined last year, the speaker is a high profile industry figure so I hope to learn something of interest, but the club doesn't offer members any form of assessment or "recognition". I can sympathise with those who seem to have been excluded and want to continue what they had. I wish them no harm, but I would still advise anyone who isn't already a member, in this or any similar circumstances to exercise due dilligence before becoming involved. I have seen too many people with credentials and qualifications that they paid money for, but have little value, or even in worst case undermine their credibility.
The Society of Professional Engineers International has been organized by Former SPE-UK Members and led by Dr Peter Prasad who are unhappy with the process that no voting by international members was made. SPE International is different from SPE UK. The Institution of Professional Engineers Myanmar www.ipemyanmar.org will co-operate with SPE International.

We will shortly be sending out an email/letter to all Members with details of the EGM, but I can confirm that the vote went in favour of merging with the IET.
With regards to the transfer grades, we are waiting on the IET for more information.
I am sorry that I cannot be of more assistance at this time, but you will be notified soon.
With kind regards
Information letters are being delivered . Here is one of these :

Dear Mr Agarwal
Membership – The Society of Professional Engineers/The Institution of Engineering & Technology
On Friday 27th April 2018, The Society held an Extraordinary General Meeting to vote for the SPE to merge with the IET.
A substantial proportion of the votes were in favour of the merger and the motions were carried.
The Society would like you to consider the IET as your future Institution. The IET membership team will contact you directly during May with details on how to transfer your membership to the IET.
If you would prefer not be contacted regarding membership of the IET, then please email Kelly Taylor email@example.com . Any questions regarding the transfer of your membership can be answered by contacting Kelly directly.

Remembering The UK Society of Professional Engineers-SPEng, Absorbed by the UK IET in June 2018, and Defending its Honourability and the One of its Pre-Existing Members-and This Only for Pure Sake of Truth!
About the Latest Headquarters of the UK Society of Professional Engineers(SPEng) a Clarification is Given in This Seat and for Sake of Truth: No Fake News Here But Only The Pure Truth!
With reference to what stated in this Forum:
Here is the latest Headquarters of SPEng: the place is a nice one and does not appear to be a “shed ” at all ! Not a shed at all, but a two storey building near the farmhouse and close to the Technical Office of Ian Wright, the latest President of the Society of Engineers ” Mother ” of SPEng ( https://www.rbkc.gov.uk/idoxWAM/doc/Other-1286668.pdf?extension=.pdf&id=1286668&location=Volume2&contentType=application/pdf&pageCount=1 ) ( https://www.theiet.org/resources/library/archives/institution-history/society_engineers.cfm ) ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Society_of_Engineers_UK ) ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Society_of_Professional_Engineers_UK )
The Society of Professional Engineers-SPEng (UK ) in the list of the entitled ones authorized to grant a Professional Engineering Qualification.http://www.highlightcomputer.com/perse.htm#e One more Journal:
At last: And all this, I repeat, for sake of truth!
I firmly think that this is a very important historical document and so it should be inserted in the IET Archive!
