Drawbacks of applying chartered membership via recognition route?

If it puts you at ease, I have never heard a company ask to see the original membership certificate for an engineering institution. And to get MICE off your existing EC qualification you still have to fill in the Attributes form to the appropriate CEng level and if ICE are in any way concerned they can still reject your application - for instance someone who was CEng MIET whose specialism was electrical engineering will probably fail to satisfy ICE using this route, so you can still use that logic to support your argument to a future employer.

I guess thinking about it now, the only significant downside is if in the future you try to use other mutual recognition routes to gain membership or qualification in other countries (e.g. Hong Kong) then this will be based on any institutions where you qualified using their 'standard route'. So in this case you could not use the ICE membership gained via mutual/EC/EU recognition to 'daisy-chain' to somewhere else. You would be able to do that if you went for CPR route though, which in effect means you have two completely separate qualifications.

E.g. let's say you were MCIBSE first, then you cannot use this route of recognition:
MCIBSE -> MICE -> MHKIE

But you could do MICE ->MHKIE only if you took the CPR route to ICE membership..

My friend passed MHKIE via the recognition route application with another institution.
Although it is via the recognition route orignally, he also had to submit the report and attend the panel interview as requested by HKIE, except skipping the written essay test.

In such case, could he apply for CEng MICE via the mutual recognition route with his MHKIE as he had actually got the MHKIE via professional review, or he could only apply via the Engineering Council Registration route, and any difference between two?

Doubt it. ICE are very strict that you acquired your 'base' professional qualification in the full and complete manner. Since your friend got MHKIE without doing the written essay he did not do the full procedure.

So is MHKIE(Civil) inferior to MICE in UK / worldwide?

Had Tim / others completed the application for MICE (CEng Level) via engineering council registration route recently? How's the outcome?
