Try to write 'Electrical or Electronic Engineer': nothing is displayed!...

I would guess that's because it isn't a regulated profession.  Why do you think the IET should be in the database?

Because MIMechE, MICE etc. are present in the database!..

Luciano Bacco has spotted it correctly.

​​​​Go to Regulated Professions by Country with Competent Authority and type in the search field any of the following: Member; Chartered; Incorporated; Engineering Technician; MICE. These are all included; but MIET is not where it once was.

​​​​​​If you go to Generic Names of Professions, and type in search field: Electrical and Computer. only two entries appear; both apply to Greece, where it used to apply to MIET and Greece.

The proof of removal of professional recognition for MIET is Here. The IET needs to explain itself!

Back in the olden days, MIEE was actually meaningful qualification.

Whereas you can get MIET if you have a relevant engineering or technology degree, work in engineering or technology, and pay your membership fee.  It's all a bit vague as a qualification.

For many years the MIET was listed in the Regulated professions database of the EU directive as an Electrical and computer (technology) engineer "Regulated professions database: Member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology"European Commission
There are different categories for such professions where some are listed as protected professions etc.  

Indeed it got removed. Why I can't tell.
