What we do

We inspire professionalism through our registers. We promote good practice, raise standards and promote collaboration amongst academia, industry and Professional Bodies for the good of science and for the good of humanity.

We advise governments on policy and science practice. And we promote the idea that talent and professionalism must and should be encouraged at all levels and amongst every background.

We shape the future for our scientists so that they can safely and ethically shape the future of our planet.

Through our member Licensed Professional Bodies we admit to our registers scientists and science technicians who meet our competence and conduct requirements and commit to Continuing Professional Development. Those scientists who reach the required standards are recognised by the following designations CSci, RSci, RSciTech, CSciTeach. Find out more about these designations here.

In addition we represent the views of scientists and their Professional Bodies to the UK government and international bodies.
