What is professional registration?

Professional registration with the Science Council provides independent recognition of your achievements and maintaining the exact standards required to join the global community of professional scientists.

Many scientists today work across different areas of science; for instance combining computing with chiropody or physics with physiology, therefore the Science Council’s registers are for all practising scientists, independent of discipline.

Registered professional scientists are recognised for their competence, ability and integrity and serving the public interest. They are committed to keeping their skills and knowledge up to date through continuing professional development (CPD).

So what is professional registration? Registration is a voluntary means of demonstrating your professionalism, and involves being held to account by your peers for your abilities and adherence to ethical standards.
