Please find the 2022 CPD standards here. If you need support with this, please get in touch.

As a professionally registered scientist, you are expected to engage in CPD each year. There are several things you need to consider when planning your activities:

  1. Is this relevant to your current or future scientific practice and work?
  2. Will it contribute to the quality of your practice?
  3. Will it ultimately benefit the users of the service you provide? (such as customers, students, colleagues etc.)

To help you plan and access a range of different types of CPD which will help meet your aims, we have developed some tools, resources and general advice.


Visit our news, blog and events area to read the latest opinions, advice and recommendations from across the Registrant network, using the tag ‘CPD’.

Tools and templates

Check the Useful Information box for documents to download that may help with your planning and monitoring. Also visit our page on Meeting your annual CPD standards, which has the answers to the most frequently asked questions from our registered professionals.

Events and webinars

Use our events listings to see if the Science Council, our Professional Bodies or any other partner organisations are holding events or webinars that you may find helpful.
