The product you have used there would normally be laid under the screed, so no I would not tile straight on to that. Why have you put it down in the first place? Take it you had rising damp though the screed?

Hi
The Damp Proof Membrane is used in the construction of the house.
It is placed on top of the hardcore which would have had a layer of building sand on top before placing the plastic then your 4"celotex insulation another thinner plastic membrane over it an your concrete slab on top. Different designs and spec may alter ie under floor heating but the Damp Proof Membrane is used to stop rising damp same as 4" DPC used in construction of walls .
Go for the tanking method .
