A member who does not agree with the results of the 2nd File Review regarding his/her certification level may appeal to the Registrar in writing within 30 days of the 2nd File Review decision using the Certification Appeal Form with all supporting documentation attached and payment of the current appeal fee. A verbal appeal will not be accepted.
The Board of the Institute of Engineering Technology of Ontario (IETO), OACETT’s certification and registration arm will appoint a Certification Appeals Committee to hear the case.

Certification requirements including the passing of the Professional Practice Exam/Internationally Educated Professional Practice Exam, mandatory road construction designations and refresher courses and experience requirements are not appealable.
The decision of the Certification Appeals Committee will be binding on both the member and the IETO Board. If the appeal is successful, the appeal fee will be refunded.
