Chartered status

Chartered status is a quality standard for Environmental Health Practitioners, demonstrating excellence for the environmental health profession across all sectors of employment.

It is not for everyone, but if you are able to 'go the extra mile' and achieve it, your efforts will be worthwhile for both your professional development and your professional currency.

Benefits of Chartered status

Fellows or Members with Chartered status may use the special designatory letters CEnvH in addition to the usual FCIEH or MCIEH.

Chartered Environmental Health Practitioners are allowed to use a Chartered status logo in their email signature, website, business cards and professional correspondence. If you have Chartered status and would like to use the logo, please get in touch with our membership team.

Requirements of Chartered status

Members with Chartered status must complete at least 30 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) rather than 20, which must be confirmed with an annual CPD declaration.
