On-going preliminary discussions with some members of the Philippine Senate and House of Representatives:
  • The Industrial Engineering Law of 2006 (A proposed bill to regulate the practice of Industrial Engineering in the Philippines through IE licensure)
  • Workload Optimization Act of 2006 (A proposed amendment to Art 101 Payment by results, of Presidential Decree No. 442, otherwise known as the Labor Code of the Philippines, as amended)
Commonly asked question: Can IEs legally use the title "Engr." before their names if they have completed their BSIE degrees?
 
Yes, IEs can. For as long as there is no law or regulation that prohibits IE graduates from using the title, then, they can and may use the "Engr." title before their names.
 
Unlike any other regulated engineering disciplines, (eg.mechanical, electrical, chemical, etc.), their respective laws (eg. RA9297 "The Chemical Engineering Law") prohibits those who have not successfully passed the board exams from using the title. It is a privilege given to the board passers. Unlawful use of such privilege imposes fines (to a max. amount of P1Mio) and imprisonment of six (6)years, or both, at the discretion of the court.
 
Hence, since the IE profession in the Philippines is not yet regulated, IE graduates can and may use the "Engr." title before their names. Afterall, they are entitled to all the privileges and rights of the IE profession upon conferment to them of the IE degree on their respective graduation rites.
