Setting the gold standard for environmental health.

Professional Standards Framework

The CIEH Professional Standards define what is expected of environmental health professionals who improve and protect people’s health, safety and well-being by securing safer, cleaner and healthier environments (or aspire to do so).

The Standards include commitments, behaviours, skills and technical expertise. The Standards capture the common attributes of a diverse group of professionals, working in different disciplines, roles and sectors, showcasing what it means to be an environmental health professional.

They help to raise the profile of the profession, by setting expectations and providing a national reference point. The Standards facilitate professional development, learning and progression and ultimately uphold and improve standards within environmental health for public protection.
