The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) is a registered charity and the professional voice for environmental health. We set standards, accredit courses and qualifications for the education of members and EHPs.
We provide information, evidence and policy advice to local and national government, environmental and public health practitioners in the public and private sectors.
As an Awarding Organisation, we provide over 60 certification qualification programmes which include food safety, health and safety, first aid, fire safety and environmental protection through a through a global network of over 10,000 registered trainers and training centres. We support our trainers and centres with events and training materials to ensure our qualifications are delivered to the highest standard.
As a campaigning organisation, we aim to promote improvements in environmental and public health policy. We are based in the UK with offices in London, Wales and Northern Ireland. We also operate in the USA, United Arab Emirates and Hong Kong.
The trading arm of the CIEH is a wholly owned trading subsidiary which is charged with promoting the mission of the CIEH through trading activities. The profits are gift-aided to the CIEH to support the charitable objectives. Conferences, seminars and a comprehensive range of public health publications are organised by this side of the CIEH.
The CIEH also supports and runs the Institute of Food Safety, Integrity & Protection (IFSIP), which is a new membership organisation connecting all those who work to keep food safe, honest and healthy. It is built around sharing knowledge and insight to promote high standards of professional practice and new ways of working. It operates under the CIEH’s charitable objectives.
