Applying for CSci Status

Applying for CSci Status

All applicants should check the competencies and Guidance Notes for details of what to include in your application. 

The Science Council has updated its assessment criteria for Chartered Scientist (CSci) to bring standards of chartership in line with the new career framework for professional scientists, independent of discipline.  The new assessment standards for Chartered Scientist (CSci), licensed by the Science Council and currently awarded by 29 professional bodies, were rolled out over a set time frame thus allowing practitioners who were already preparing their paperwork to make a submission using the pre-April 2015 application form and standards. However, all members should now be using the Post-April 2015 application form and so please click on the link below to access this document.
