Explore the CIEH Professional Standards
Setting the gold standard for environmental health.
If you work in environmental health, our Professional Standards will help you to achieve the highest level of competent and professional practice which CIEH, regulators and the public expect.
The Professional Standards sit at the heart of everything we do. We use them to drive assessment, accreditation and recognition in order to shape the profession and build resilience for the future world of work.
As a professional, these standards are a benchmark for professionalism, progression, and for providing the best possible service. Remember, your employers will likely be holding you to the same standards in your day-to-day work.
As a member, you can be assessed against these standards to progress through our different membership grades, gain CIEH qualifications and enable continuing professional development.
As an employer, you can use them to inform recruitment, assess training needs and set a code of conduct and professionalism for your employees.
The CIEH Professional Standards were made for our members by our members. When we set out to create these best practice guidelines, we ran consultations with our members, and used their valuable contributions to help shape the final set of agreed standards.
We want to make sure that we’re always representing your interests. You can have your say about the CIEH Professional Standards here.
