Re: IET manufacturing engineer - title change? John Radencich 30 Jun 2006 20:17 UTC

I'm not so sure.  For a major change "consider as a major change in
title proper a change in a corporate body name given anywhere in the
title if it is a different corporate body."  They may just be initials,
but IET is a different name from IEE.  Or at least (and to emphasize)
the organization the initials IET stands for is a different name from
that of the organization the initials IEE stands for.  So I would feel
compelled to go with major change.  Furthermore, in the list of minor
changes the third  category says "a difference involving the name of the
same corporate body."  I'm afraid IET and IEE don't stand for the same
corporate bodies.
